North Korea and the United States will resume their contacts on Friday

October 1, 2019


The governments of North Korea and the United States will make a “preliminary contact” on Friday to try to lay the groundwork for a new nuclear negotiation, the North Korean Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui announced Tuesday, without clarifying where and how these would take place. conversations

The preliminary contact on Friday will be followed by “work level negotiations” on Saturday, according to testimony released by the official North Korean news agency, KCNA. “I hope the negotiations will accelerate positive advances in relationships,” he added.

The South Korean Presidency has applauded through the mouth of its spokesman, Ko Min Jung, the resumption of contacts between Washington and Pyongyang. He hopes there will be “practical progress” to “complete the denuclearization of the peninsula and establish a lasting peace,” according to the Yonhap agency.

The imminent talks will be the first since the failed February summit between the president of the United States, Donald Trump, and the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un. The North Korean regime has applauded the recent cessation of John Bolton as a national security adviser in the United States.
