Pyongyang set to break off talks with Washington

The North Korean leadership is considering suspension of denuclearization talks with the United States, North Korea’s Deputy Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui said.

According to her, the North Korea has no intention to yield to the U.S. demands put forward at the Hanoi summit in any form, nor is willing to engage in negotiations of this kind.

The deputy minister added that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is set to make an official statement soon to announce his country’s further actions in the wake of the unsuccessful Hanoi summit, TASS reported.

It was the first statement by a senior North Korean official to comment on the results of the February 27-28 talks between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi.
