North Korea abandons nuclear freeze pledge, blames 'brutal' U.S. sanctions

Source: Reuters

GENEVA (Reuters) - North Korea said on Tuesday it was no longer bound by commitments to halt nuclear and missile testing, blaming the United States’ failure to meet a year-end deadline for nuclear talks and “brutal and inhumane” U.S. sanctions.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un set an end-December deadline for denuclearization talks with the United States and White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien said at the time the United States had opened channels of communication.

O’Brien said then he hoped Kim would follow through on denuclearization commitments he made at summits with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Ju Yong Chol, a counselor at North Korea’s mission to the U.N. in Geneva, said that over the past two years, his country had halted nuclear tests and test firing of inter-continental ballistic missiles “in order to build confidence with the United States”.

6. It's in a WH closet.

Trumpsky is keeping it hidden due to the emoluments clause.

9. Another policy failure.

First Iran, now NK. He's made a shambles of Israeli peace and China tariffs.

We should just green light his wall. Odds are he'll fail to erect one that could keep a Chihuahua puppy out. Indeed, it would likely just fall over.

Trump is a fraud and a failure.

11. I feel like we're being set up.

For Trump to come riding in and suddenly agreeing to 'peace' with North Korea. Then he'll spend the rest of the year pontificating about his forthcoming Nobel Peace Prize.
