Crafty Kim. The White House commented on the failure of Pyongyang to test

68
Donald Trump's advisers were skeptical of the North Korean leader’s promise to abandon further nuclear and missile tests, calling Kim Jong-un's statement on this issue a “trap,” reports RIA News.




According to the Washington Post, presidential advisers fear that the DPRK leader "decided to make relatively modest promises" that he "could quickly take back." According to them, Kim Jong-un wants to "create the illusion that he is prudent" and is ready to compromise.

Because of this, Washington will continue to find it harder to abandon the demands of Pyongyang, officials say.

Some of them view UN's promises as an attempt to force the White House to “soften economic sanctions” against the DPRK.

Recall, on Saturday, Pyongyang proclaimed a “new strategic course”, refusing further nuclear and missile tests in order to “focus exclusively on the development of the country's economy.”

This decision was proclaimed in a resolution of the plenum of the Central Committee of the Korean Workers' Party (TPC). Pyongyang also announced the closure of a nuclear test site in the north of the country. Thus, North Korea "joins the international effort to comprehensively end nuclear testing."

The new political course was adopted on the eve of the summit of the DPRK and South Korea, scheduled for 27 in April, as well as the planned meeting of Kim Jong Un with Donald Trump.

      Why don’t you say that Eun is a good player, Striped again “swallow dust” and make a smart face. If direct negotiations between the North and the South begin, the Americans will once again "sit in a puddle"

              And they themselves, like those hungry rats, stubbornly climb into this trap! If so, then why is the US trying to continue dialogue with North Korea? In addition, ahead of Trump's meeting with Eun. Does the US hope to bend Eun in further negotiations? Yes, he in a military confrontation with them not only did not step back a step, but, on the contrary, emerged victorious from this confrontation! So why is the US confident that it will be different now?

                      Here, Eunu can help only one remedy, “I carry all of my own,” from bedding to a complete set — breakfast, lunch, dinner (he needs to throw our rations). Mattresses can not be trusted in anything. Hugo Chavez, they somehow managed to infect. In general, it’s even interesting who will replay whom at the upcoming meeting. Or Eun will “ramp up,” or Trump will “obliterate.” The fact that they went to negotiations suggests that Eun is already perceived by them, if not as “equal”, then as a strong opponent, otherwise they would consider meeting with him “below their dignity. " Eun was “charged” by Russia and China, so for the United States the upcoming conversation will not be easy.

      Nuclear tests in principle, the DPRK are no longer needed .. They have carriers too .. Now all these tests can be simulated on a computer. So liberalism is in vain rejoicing about the US victory over the DPRK hehe But what the US and K are most afraid of rapprochement and unification of Koreans .. Here then they will be a real force (when the United States kicks out of the peninsula with a kick in the ass)

      Not. The main and only non-negotiating condition is that all negotiations are DENUCLERIZED. That is, he cut all Kim’s warheads and weapons-based weapons production facilities by the UN / IAEA international group. This is not a subject of negotiations - it is a basic condition of the negotiations themselves.

      The subject is conditions (lifting of sanctions / material assistance) and terms (Japan insists on full denuclearization until 2020 of the year, for example).

      I would not say so categorically. The PRC, of ​​course, can influence the DPRK, but call it the dog of China ... You are probably wrong.

    ... "will be able to quickly take back" ....
    So they can sign contracts, make promises, and then "turn on the back", but you can’t Eun?
    Moreover, while the actions of the DPRK are declarative in nature, in other words, they simply declare without taking any obligations.

    here about nuclear tests, I agree, the right decision, but about missiles is absolutely wrong! I wouldn’t have done such stupidity as Comrade Eun didn’t do the missile program ... although perhaps Comrade Eun, being in my place, would not have done many other stupid things inherent to me ... such a dualism wassat

    Whatever the DPRK does, so that it does not promise an “earthly conscience” in the person of pin dos, it will arrange only the complete destruction of this regime. So S may or may not be exceptional, but the result will be negative. Although the UN can always say that we tried, but the United States refused to listen.

    Eun is a very good student and perfectly mastered the tactics of the Americans, unlike his predecessor, his father. After all, the promises of the Americans mean nothing, you can take the promises back in case of something. When the Americans began to beat them with weapons, they really do not like!

    “Decided to make relatively modest promises,” which he “will be able to quickly take back”
    Americans out of habit believe that only they are so wise and only they have the right not to fulfill their obligations. But no. In addition to the United States, there are more than 200 countries in the world, and each is trying to think in its own way and pursue its own profit. It’s high time to dip American politics in a slop bucket. The scent was completely lost, but there was never a conscience.

    "Advisers to Donald Trump were skeptical of the promise of the North Korean leader to abandon further nuclear and missile tests, calling Kim Jong-un's statement on this subject a" trap, "reports."
    Well yes. Until Kim fixes his own head in the guillotine, there will be a "skeptical" attitude towards any of his actions.
    "... In the future, it will be more difficult for Washington to abandon Pyongyang’s demands, officials say."
    This is when Washington bothered with such nonsense?

      Washington will have to bother; the time of Asia has come to replace Europe. Set past historical events in the Asia-Europe link and rotate it 180 degrees. and understand what it’s about.

    Nuclear tests in principle, the DPRK are no longer needed .. They have carriers too .. Now all these tests can be simulated on a computer. So liberalism is in vain rejoicing about the US victory over the DPRK hehe But what the US and K are most afraid of rapprochement and unification of Koreans .. Here then they will be a real force (when the United States kicks out of the peninsula with a kick in the ass)

    Vitaliy, Vitaliy. probably in North Korea there are megagenias, that after 6 tests they don’t need to modify anything ???
    The power of the first 3 or 4 did not exceed the power of the Hiroshima bomb. Even you could make a bungalow in your barn. You can believe that you have experienced a thermonuclear charge with an energy release of 45-60 kt. And then simulate everything on computers ...

    It will take several decades before a united Korea becomes a real force. On the one hand, a developed and rich south, on the other, the north ... Even after 30 years, parts of a united Germany did not equalize economically. East lags behind West. And so in Korea. And the association itself is not known under what conditions it will happen. The South does not want the North to become the head; the North does not want to unite under the auspices of the South. Years and years will pass, until they come to something common. And you already dream that the Americans will be kicked out ...

    Quote: Vadim237
    North Korea needs a modern air defense system.

    Well, in this regard, they are slowly working. At least their new complexes account for approximately 30%
    But aviation is zero. And air defense without aviation will do little in case of conflict

    Quote: Thrall
    Just the North Korean nuclear program does not require testing at this stage. And so this is of course a great victory for the United States smile

    If they want to leave in service that primitive that they now have, then it really does not require. If they want to improve the performance characteristics of their charges - it requires repeated ones.

    According to the Washington Post, presidential advisers fear that the DPRK leader “decided to make relatively modest promises,” which he “could quickly take back.”

    Well done KIM, copied his behavior from Americans letter to letter! That's exactly what they always do. They promise, then they say that they did not promise.

    I don’t understand those people who write that the United States screwed up. From the news, I see that it is the DPRK that has big problems inside the country since politics has turned 180 degrees. Take off finally the pink glasses and turn on your head. In this news, somewhere it is said that sanctions will be lifted or announced the date of the meeting of the US and DPRK leaders is not.
