North Korea: Pompeo Not Welcome at Nuclear Negotiations
Friday, 19 April 2019 03:19 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

North Korea is demanding that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo no longer take part in any further talks involving its nuclear weapons program.

Kwon Jong Gun, a senior official in the North's foreign ministry, says Pyongyang wants someone who is œmore careful and mature in communicating, according to a report by the official KCNA news agency.

When asked about the development, a State Department spokesperson said "The United States remains ready to engage North Korea in a constructive negotiation."

On Wednesday, North Korea announced that it had tested a new œtactical guided weapon, the latest display of Pyongyang's military capabilities.

KCNA said Kim Jong Un supervised and guided the Wednesday test, calling it an operation of œvery weighty significance.

The KCNA report did not elaborate on the type of weapon tested, but the phrase œtactical suggests it is not a ballistic missile.

Still, the test could be seen as a warning to the United States, amid an impasse in talks over North Korea™s nuclear program.
