South Korea's Moon says North Korea-US talks 'on track', criticism a ploy

Post by 1989TransAm » Thu Jul 12, 2018 12:45 pm

I was wondering who put out that North Korean photo a couple of weeks ago. I suspect someone in the deep state trying to cause trouble for President Trump. Also IMHO a lot of Kabuki Theater is going on from North Korea in order to try and make little Kim look good.

"South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday (Jul 12) that North Korea's criticism of the United States after recent talks on denuclearisation was part of its strategy and negotiations between them are on the "right track".
North Korea accused the United States on Saturday of making "gangster-like" demands in the talks in North Korea late last week, contradicting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who said the old enemies had made progress.

Moon, speaking in Singapore during a state visit, said that talks on the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula between North Korea and the United States may face hurdles and take time, his office said.
"No one can be optimistic about the results, but my cautious outlook is that the negotiations would be able to succeed if the North carries out a complete denuclearisation, and the international community gathers efforts to provide security guarantees to the North," Moon said.
The North's criticism was a "strategy" meant to show its frustration about what it sees as a lack of action from the United States in response to the steps it had recently taken, Moon said.

The North has invited foreign journalists, but not experts as promised, to the dismantling of a nuclear site, and pledged to close a missile engine testing facility....
