La soeur du dirigeant nord-coréen ne voit pas l'intérêt d'un nouveau sommet avec les Etats-Unis

SEOUL | Kim Yo Jong, sister of north Korean leader Kim Jong One, said Friday that she did not see the interest of a new summit with the United States unless “a decisive change” on the part of Washington.

If a summit were to take place, “it is too obvious that it would only serve to boasting boring” on the part of “someone’s proud,” said the agency’s north Korean KCNA Kim Yo Jong, who has emerged as one of the personalities is the most powerful of the plan recluse.

Kim Jong un and us president, Donald Trump met for the first time in 2018 to Singapore, but negotiations are at a standstill since the fiasco of the second summit in February 2019 in Hanoi.

This failure had been caused by disagreement about the concessions that should make North Korea to obtain a relief of the heavy international sanctions it faces because of its nuclear programs and ballistic prohibited by the UN.

Mr. Trump said this week that he believed “that this could be useful”, he would “certainly” again Mr. Kim.

“We don’t need to sit at the same table with the United States at this time”, replied Kim Jong One.
