The North Korean ambassador to India, Kye Chun Yong, has admitted to a reporter that Pyongyang would consider halting all nuclear testing IF South Korea and the United State ended their large-scale annual military drills in the area.
Kye said, “Under the certain circumstances, we are willing to talk in terms of freezing our nuclear and missile testing. For instance, if America decides to completely stop the large-scale military exercise, stop temporarily or permanently, then we will also temporarily stop. Let us talk about how to solve the Korean issue peacefully.”
Kye also added, “If our demands is met, we can negotiate in terms of the moratorium of such as weapons testing.”
It is not often that the words peaceful and North Korea go together! Should America take North Korea up on their terms? Will they even adhere to them?
However, while the North Korean ambassador to India seems to want to spread the word of love and hope, the Korean Central News Agency is reporting something different altogether.
“However, the Trump administration, obsessed by megalomania, is going arrogant to mount a preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK. The army of the DPRK is whetting the sword of retaliation sharper than before with a firm hold on the nuclear sword of justice to cope with the U.S. imperialists’ escalating aggression moves.”
The added, “The U.S. imperialist warmongers should not run amuck, clearly mindful that their reckless nuclear war hysteria will only bring the U.S. destruction.”
Hmm, it sounds like there are two conflicting stories coming out of North Korea! So, which one should we believe?
Conservative Tribune reports:
It would appear that a crack in North Korea’s facade of insistence upon developing a nuclear program has been exposed, at least if the communist regime’s ambassador to India is to be believed.
According to The Daily Caller, North Korean ambassador Kye Chun Yong told a reporter at India’s WION that Pyongyang would be open to considering putting a halt to nuclear testing if a certain condition was met by their neighbor South Korea and the United States, that condition being an end to large-scale annual military drills in the region.
