Tuesday evening’s Asahi wrote that North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Tuesday ran a commentary criticizing the United States’ posture toward its denuclearization talks with the DPRK by claiming that Washington is making unilateral demands on Pyongyang and that a declaration of the official end of the Korean War is a fair demand based on the U.S.-DPRK statement agreed upon in June. The KCNA claimed: “Although we have been taking substantive steps, the United States has been reiterating the need for strengthened sanctions. We will not insist on a declaration of the end of the Korean War if the United States doesn’t want one.” The paper speculated that the message was intended as a warning to the U.S. prior to Secretary of State Pompeo’s planned visit to Pyongyang this month.
