U.S - North Korea mull declaration to formally end Korean War - ROK sources
KCNA: "It is necessary to recollect the past when the atmosphere of peace created in the Korean peninsulaended in a failure owing to the military hostilitiesIt is necessary to behave with discretion, pondering over consequencesby the dangerous military moves."
KCNA: "Dialogue, peace and improved relations can never go together with war drill and military hostility and pressure. Rough handling of the inter-Korean relations and DPRK-U.S. ties may incur grave consequences."
KCNA: "The arms buildup and war exercise in south Korea are dangerous moves against the trend towards the improvement of the DPRK-U.S. relations and inter-Korean relations that took a significant first step."
KCNA: "If the present U.S. administration reads others' faces, lending an ear to others, it may face the shattered dream of the improvement of the relations with the DPRK and world peace and miss the rare historic opportunity. That will be followed only by regret and compunction"
KCNA: "If the upcoming DPRK-U.S. negotiations end without results as wished by the opponent forces, the U.S. people will never be cleared of the security threats that threw them into panic and then responsibility will be placed on those due."
KCNA: "The Democratic Party seems not realizing itself lurching toward conservative, being lost to its own 'authenticity' at the end of getting indulged in opposition just for the sake of opposition."
KCNA: "It is absolutely as foolhardy as expecting to see a chicken turning into a phoenix to expect proper comment from the U.S. intelligence agencies as they have it as their basic mission to claim white to be black and lie to be truth out of skepticism about others."
KCNA: "The world sincerely hopes for good results from the second DPRK-U.S. summitBut the Democratic Party of the U.S. and other opponents to the negotiations moveto disrupt thembacked by all sorts of groundless stories and misinformation even at such a crucial moment."
KCNA: "Throughout the U.S. history, no example can be found by which the U.S. governments tried to properly settle the DPRK-U.S. relations. The 'strategic patience' policy, reflective of the self-abandonment of the Obama administration, was the worst blunder."
: So funny to people who have failed for years, they got NOTHING, telling me how to negotiate with North Korea. But thanks anyway.
: President Xi of China has been very helpful in his support of my meeting with Kim Jong Un. The last thing China wants are large scale nuclear weapons right next door. Sanctions placed on the border by China and Russia have been very helpful. Great relationship with Chairman Kim.
: Very productive talks yesterday with China on Trade. Will continue today. I will be leaving for Hanoi, Vietnam, early tomorrow for a Summit with Kim Jong Un of North Korea, where we both expect a continuation of the progress made at first Summit in Singapore. Denuclearization
