"Kim Jong-un is silent for now": the US spoke about the attempts of the Biden administration to contact Pyongyang

76

It became known that the administration of Joseph Biden, a few weeks after the inauguration of the 46th President of the United States, began to make attempts to contact the authorities of North Korea. This is reported by several Western media at once, including the CNN TV channel.


Reports indicate that the first attempts to contact Kim Jong Un were made in early February.
From materials citing a senior US administration official:

Representatives of the Biden administration tried to use the North Korean mission at the UN for these purposes. But at the moment, Pyongyang has not yet reacted in any way to the proposal of the American side.

Unnamed official:

We tried to contact the North Korean representatives at the UN in order to follow the path of de-escalation of the conflict. We tried to use several diplomatic channels. The US has had no contact with Pyongyang for over a year.

It was noted that "Kim Jong-un is silent for now."

An American official told the press that the US administration is currently reviewing its foreign policy towards the DPRK. In particular, it is noted that such a policy should be based on the concept according to which "North Korea poses a threat not only to its neighbors, but to the whole world."

I wonder how Washington intends to enter into dialogue with such an approach to the DPRK? Or again "from a position of strength"? But Pyongyang has repeatedly demonstrated that talking to it from a position of strength is futile. I remember that Donald Trump sent three carrier strike groups at once towards the Korean Peninsula. These AUGs circled in the specified region for several weeks, and then they had to leave. And after a while, Trump and Kim Jong-un held several meetings, and in the DPRK they even dismantled the infrastructure at one of the missile test sites. After that, a "freeze" re-emerged in relations, primarily due to the fact that the United States did not fulfill its promises to lift the sanctions.

      Why hurry? Maybe he'll have to talk to Kamala Harris in six months! And she, the current vice president, is very left-wing by the standards of the States.
      And it will be much more convenient for him to start a dialogue with her, especially after the removal of President Biden from power due to dementia and reputational costs.
      And then all the journalists and propaganda will tell you that the wise Eun foresaw everything and knew in advance. Solid benefits.


      Have you seen how Biden forgot the name of his Secretary of Defense, who was standing next to him?
      And I could not read from the screen normally (let alone speak from myself), made signs to slow down the text ...

          The question is for what salary, at the level of the 90s, when I received a salary for 4 years in dollars, I now live better, earning in rubles. So the sun not only shines but also warms.
          As for independence, if the head of state brings people to the point that people eat grass, such a leader should be hanged by the balls.

            Having failed in the Korean War, the DPRK embarked on a course of isolationism directed not only against American-South Korean, but also Soviet and Chinese influence, although the country continued to receive military-economic assistance primarily from the USSR, where partial de-Stalinization had already begun.
            The state ideology of North Korean isolationism, which provides for the construction of "socialism based on its own forces", was called "juche"... The Juche ideology is based on leaderism, militarism, xenophobia (in particular, it prescribes strong condemnation of "groveling before big countries") and declaring the subject of history not a class, but a nation (this is its difference from classical Marxism-Leninism-Stalinism)
            In addition to the Juche ideology, ideas were launched into public circulation at the beginning of the 21st century. songun, i.e. priority of the interests of the armed forces in the state. p-ve.

    "North Korea poses a threat not only to its neighbors, but to the whole world."
    First, they will shit, and then they loudly declare that they are trying to "settle" the conflict. Kim Jong-un had an affair with Trump and the latter got burned in his diplomacy and stumbled over his own threats. And they obviously don't want to talk to the poorly thinking Biden yet, and there is nothing to talk about. therefore
    At the moment, Pyongyang has not yet reacted in any way to the proposal of the American side.

      During the election race, Biden repeatedly spoke unflatteringly about North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. In a debate with Trump in October 2020, he called him a thug. Prior to that, in 2019, speaking to voters in Philadelphia, Biden said that Kim Jong-un is a dictator and tyrant, and before that in New Hampshire, he called him a murderer.

    It was noted that "Kim Jong-un is silent for now."

    There are rumors in the media sphere that Kim Jong-un is not at all silent, but in the purest English he sent Biden, his administration and all their AUGs to all known and unknown places using such idiomatic expressions that even the Oxford Dictionary does not know about.

      In South Korea, there were also rumors that Eun personally shot his generals from an anti-aircraft gun, and at lunchtime he watched as his mistress athletes ran in a circle with crocodiles and lions in a circle.
      So many stories have been made up about Eun
      that you no longer know how to laugh or cry over them.

        I was joking, well, what are you?
        And about anti-aircraft guns and dogs with crocodiles - the bullshit of Anglo-Saxon propagandists. Even they themselves admitted it.

    ... in the meantime, in ukroSMI already saw about five articles on the topic "When the can will call Selyansky" ... There is just one difference - the head of the country. Even if not rich, but independent. Second ... Nothing at all, and there is no country. So choose what is better ... "Tyranny" or just such a simple servility

    "Kim Jong-un is silent for now": the US spoke about the attempts of the Biden administration to contact Pyongyang

    And the "rocket guy" knows his own worth and ... what should he talk about with the old men \ the collective president of the strip ??? There is no clear leader there, who can, can really solve something without a long burden.

    "... everything became incomprehensible to us:
    we send a signal: "What is it there?"
    but they send an image. "
    And sho, is that possible? Looks like Eun has an argument.

    Reminded: "your call is very important to us .....".
    And somewhere in the corner, one president of Ukraine is quietly crying, every second looking at the phone, hoping for a call from the great white leader and master.

    The US has not had contact with Pyongyang for over a year.

    It is better to protect yourself from such contacts.

    There was such a cartoon ... There is a badger (or a hamster?), A hamster (or a badger?) Is silent.
    Everyone tries to talk to him, they rub something important on him, but he goes and is silent!
    Croche, in the end, it turned out - it was not in vain that he was silent, his mouth was busy with a reserve for the winter, in contrast to the eloquent and sociable "interlocutors".
    The guy has a fusion. So are missiles with a decent range.
    But - is silent.
    This means that I am not yet ready to "but talk."
    They make nuclear submarines, or a group of satellites with the help of China is put into orbit, the number of BGs is increased to parity - this is a secret.
    But the kid is serious, and he will have to be reckoned with, one propaganda that "Koreans live in the Middle Ages" the Americans and Japanese will not get away.
    Only while he was silent, and therefore he looks smart, the Americans piled 40 barrels of prisoners, and now without losing face in front of the same Japan and South Korea (and hereinafter - everywhere) from the topic does not leave.
