US must resume nuke talks or risk nasty ‘Christmas gift’

North Korea warned the United States on Tuesday that if nuclear arms talks are not resumed before the end of the year, it may not be happy with the “Christmas gift” delivered by leader Kim Jong Un. 

In a statement attributed to Ri Thae Song, a vice foreign minister in charge of U.S. affairs, the regime expressed frustration at the lack of progress in the talks with the U.S., saying the negotiations appeared to be a “foolish trick” aimed at stalling North Korean progress and scoring domestic political points. 

Ri said North Korea has “heard more than enough” of U.S. rhetoric and “no one will lend an ear to the U.S. any longer.” 

North Korea has been calling for the U.S. to offer new terms for a deal since the February summit in Hanoi between Kim and President Donald Trump broke down. Since the end of that meeting between the two leaders, North Korea has resumed missile tests and has threatened to start launching long-range missiles again as well.
