SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday 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 U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who said the old enemies had made progress.

Moon, speaking in Singapore with its president and prime minister, 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.

1. I guess

Pompeo is lieing then? Or Moon is lieing? But the story is different from each other.

Maybe NK did show up at the reparation site and our guys were using the rest room or getting something at Starbucks NK?

2. "On track" need only mean "just begun and not yet fucked up."

It's an optimistic framing, but understandable from anyone who doesn't want to die in a blast of neutrons.
