Washington expressed willingness to negotiate with Pyongyang

39
Representatives of the United States are ready to sit down at the negotiating table with the leadership of the DPRK, reports TASS Statement by Vice President Michael Pens.




Pence told the Washington Post about how he discussed with South Korean leader Moon Jae-In the conditions for further interaction with Pyongyang, which Seoul will begin, and then Washington may join it.

According to the vice president, this is “maximum pressure and interaction at the same time.”

The bottom line is that the pressure will not ease until they (the DPRK) actually do what, in the opinion of the (American-South Korean) alliance, is a significant step towards denuclearization. The maximum pressure campaign will continue and intensify. But if you (DPRK) want to talk, we'll talk,
said Pence.

The newspaper notes that "this is an important change in the previous position of Washington, which was to exert maximum pressure until Pyongyang makes real concessions." Only after that Washington planned a gradual interaction with Pyongyang.

The publication also emphasizes that during his visit to the Republic of Korea, Pence constantly consulted with Donald Trump, since the parties did not have a common opinion about the need to continue inter-Korean contacts.

Pence told the South Korean president that "the international community should not repeat the mistakes of the past and make concessions to the DPRK in exchange for holding talks." Mun Jae Ying promised "to explain to Pyongyang that economic and diplomatic restrictions will not be eased only for the sake of negotiations," for this, "concrete steps towards denuclearization" are necessary.

In this regard, Pence expressed confidence that he would be able to maintain further contacts with Pyongyang. He stressed that the current situation "is different from the one that was the last 20 years."

      You would be sitting overseas and there would definitely not be a conflict. yes

            But the United States needs the conflict. The richest (read - the most influential) lobbyists of the US government are arms manufacturers. It is vital for them that they buy weapons, and for this, enemies and ongoing wars are needed. The war with North Korea has not yet begun just because the US is not sure that Kim will not be able to get them.
            As soon as confidence arises, they will certainly strike, and Japan and South Korea will be framed, so that there would be someone to express condolences and justify their crimes, and at the same time fill their pocket to help the victims.

              This statement is not true.

              I wonder where you see
              The richest (read - the most influential) lobbyists of the US government - weapon manufacturers.

        The stump is clear, everywhere you need to stick your long American nose yes They will understand each other very well and not necessarily with the help of fists, they just recently demonstrated this without inviting anyone to negotiate with each other and got along very well.
        TOKYO, Jan 9 - RIA News. The delegations of the DPRK and South Korea began negotiations on Tuesday at the ministerial level, according to Ronhap.
        According to the agency, the meeting took place at 10:00 (04:00 Moscow time). It is expected that the parties will discuss ways to improve relations, as well as consider options for the participation of North Korean athletes in the Olympics in South Korean Pyeongchang. The delegation of the DPRK was headed by Lee Son Gwong, Chairman of the Peace Unification Committee of the Homeland, and the South Korean Minister of National Association Affairs of the Republic of Korea, Cho Myung-gun. The parties met at the negotiation point Panmunjom, which is located in the southern part of the demilitarized zone, in the so-called Peace House, where various meetings of representatives of the South and the North were held many times. The conversation is held behind closed doors; journalists are not present at the meeting of delegations.

        So it's good where you are not. yes Anyway, if there wasn’t DPRK, you would still have thought up an excuse to get side by side with China and Russia, shouting that Russia and China are aggressors. yes

    The point is that they “express their readiness for negotiations” ... I do not think that there are still optimists in the world who consider Americans to be negotiable in principle. After all, they are masters of their own word ... They wanted, they gave, they wanted, they took it back.

    the current situation is “different from the last 20 years”
    Of course it’s different. The DPRK did not have nuclear weapons and delivery vehicles. Today, there are Americans who are “ready” to talk, but as always add that on their own terms. We have to make a mine of "ruler of the world", but at the same time realizing that the Koreans not only do not believe the United States, but also not be afraid. And this is what infuriates Americans the most.

      It’s just that, as usual, the Americans got out of control.

      Previously, there was no oil or democracy in North Korea. But the latter did not care about the Americans at all. Because of the first 8)))
      They used the "North Korean factor" to create one of the main bastions of the "Great Anti-China Wall" in Japan and South Korea. There, in fact, even before the current crisis, there were more American troops than in Europe, and the throughput capacity of the American bases there is too large to capture the small country of Juche

      But the North Koreans took, but nuclear weapons were born. And everything began to look quite sour for the Americans ... They are now in a state of zugzwang. The times when they could use in practice the absolutely safe UK as a scarecrow and an excuse for their excessive military presence have passed irrevocably.

      "Final decision" is not acceptable. The Japanese and South Koreans will decide that the Yankees are no longer needed.
      Reducing the degree of confrontation is unacceptable. The Japanese and South Koreans will decide that the Yankees are no longer needed.
      You can’t do anything either. The Japanese and South Koreans will decide that the Yankees are no longer needed.

      Wherever you throw, everywhere a wedge ... Another example of the transition of a pleasant "controlled chaos" into a completely unpleasant uncontrollable.

    The only probability of unification of North and South Korea for the American elites is like a sickle in a tender place. Therefore, whatever Pence and other striped “virtues” say, they will drive wedges between the North and the South by all means. There is no need to talk about any agreements between the DPRK and the United States. What Pence is right about is that the current situation "is different from the one that has been the last 20 years," and it is not in favor of the United States.
