North Korea Blames US for Failed Talks in Vietnam

Bolton said the United States was still open to talks with Kim's regime but that it had not changed its position from the one outlined at the summit in Hanoi.

The possible meeting between Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un might be helpful in the settlement of the Pyongyang nuclear and weapons issue, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Saturday. The Japanese government has repeatedly said they consider ongoing North Korean missile tests as threats.

North Korea said Friday that nuclear negotiations with the United States will never resume unless the Trump administration moves away from what Pyongyang described as unilateral demands for disarmament.

"U.N. Security Council resolutions prohibit North Korea from firing any ballistic missiles", Bolton said.

Bolton said Stephen Biegun, the US special representative for North Korea, "can't wait" to meet his North Korean counterpart again, "but they haven't responded", adding that Biegun was ready to get on a plane and go "anywhere, any time".

Trump is stopping only in Japan on this trip because of the importance of representing the USA on the first state visit during the nation's new imperial era, Bolton said.

In a statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency, a North Korean spokesman accused the US of deliberately causing February's collapse of talks between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by making unilateral and impossible demands.

The North requested sanctions relief in exchange for partial denuclearization measures.

The "underlying cause" of the "setback" in Hanoi was "the arbitrary and dishonest position taken by the United States", it quoted a North Korean foreign ministry spokesperson as saying.

The Wise Honest, as the North Korean ship is known, has been held since May 11 at American Samoa, a USA island territory in the South Pacific. The U.S. special envoy to North Korea, Stephen Biegun, "can't wait to talk to his North Korean counterpart, but they haven't responded", he said, adding that Biegun was "ready at any point to get on a plane and go anywhere".

The U.S. hasn't heard much from North Korea since Trump's February summit in Vietnam with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and neither has President Moon Jae-in of South Korea, Bolton said.

Given the importance of the abductee issue, and Japan's interest in the elimination of North Korea's weapons program, an Abe-Kim summit "could be of substantial assistance", Bolton said.
