North Korea Rebuffs U.S. Diplomacy While ‘Hostile Policy’ is In Place

Pyongyang said that it would ignore all contact with Washington due to the alleged  “hostile policy” of the US.

The statement was made after US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced that both pressure and diplomatic options are on the table for North Korea.

 “The goal is to really figure out how we have the best chance in resolving the challenges posed by North Korea to us and unfortunately to its own people,” said Blinken during a press conference.

Currently, Blinken and Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin were in Seoul for Joint talks with South Korea regarding the North’s nuclear program. 

“It will only be a waste of time to sit with the U.S., as it is not ready to feel and accept new change and new times,” responded First Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui.

Choe added that contact with the US was impossible unless “the US rolls back its hostile policy.”

Blinken said the administration of President Joe Biden would complete its review of North Korea policy in the next few weeks after consulting with their allies in the region.
