June 12, 2020

North Korea warned the United States on Friday not to interfere in inter-Korean relations after the US State Department said it was “disappointed” with the closure of Pyongyang-Seoul communication channels.

The United States urged North Korea to continue the path of diplomacy and coordination with South Korea, an ally of the North American country, while ensuring that it maintains “close coordination” with Seoul.

“It is ridiculous indeed,” said Northwestern Ministry’s director of American affairs, Kwon Jong Gun. “Nobody has the right to say this or that about inter-Korean relations that relate to the peninsula’s internal affairs from A to Z,” added Kwon in a statement from the North Korean news agency KCNA.

“When the United States pokes its nose at sloppy statements about other people’s affairs, far from dealing with its internal affairs at a time when its political situation is at its worst, it can be difficult to do something uncomfortable “, he continued, noting that it” seems “that the United States continues to misunderstand” the growing resentment “of the North Koreans.

“It is better for the United States to remain silent and take care of its internal affairs first if it does not want to experience anything terrible,” he warned. “It would not only be good for the interests of the United States, but also for simply holding the next elections,” he said.
