North Korea's Kim 'open to third summit with Trump'
14 April, 2019, 05:43 | Author: Carlos George
The Hanoi summit "raised strong questions about whether the steps we took under our strategic decision were right, and gave us a sense of caution about whether the U.S.is even really trying to improve the DPRK-U.S. relationship", Kim said, using the initials of North Korea's full name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
"We do not welcome nor have any desire to see another Hanoi summit", he added.
Kim said that the North would not stick to summits with the US for the sake of easing sanctions but it will wait with patience until year's end for a courageous decision from the USA, setting an effective deadline for a shift in the US demands in denuclearization talks.
"Anyway, we will wait for a bold decision from the USA with patience till the end of this year but I think it will definitely be hard to get such a good opportunity as the previous summit".
"North Korea has tremendous potential for... extraordinary growth, economic success and riches under the leadership of Chairman Kim", Trump added.
The timing of Kim's announcement looks significant.
Kim said the United States "is further escalating the hostility to us with each passing day despite its suggestion for settling the issue through dialogue".
"However, the United States has taken a more hard-line stance since the Hanoi summit".
North Korean state media reported the comments by Mr Kim on Saturday.
"What is clear is that if the US persists in its present political calculation method, the prospect of settling the issues will be gloomy and very unsafe", Kim said.

"We regard it as important to solve problems through dialogue and negotiations but we do not like and have interest in the USA way of talks".
Kim's remarks were released just a day after South Korean President Moon Jae-in met with Trump in Washington.

"The confrontation is likely to continue as there's a low chance that the United States will change its position", Mr Shin said.
He also reiterated that his problem was with Trump's administration, not the president himself.
As the new president of the Supreme People's Assembly, Choe is technically head of state, although real power in North Korea is wielded by Kim and his immediate family. Trump asked Kim to "go big" by turning over his entire nuclear, chemical and biological arsenal and production capability, in return for a "bright future" economically.
Ms Choe Son Hui, another official who has played a highly visible role in the USA talks, was promoted to the job of first vice foreign minister, a move that could give her even more sway if discussions resume.
Kim also said he wouldn't necessarily be focused on a summit to obtain sanctions relief and wouldn't hesitate to reach an agreement if the US brings up an idea that is acceptable to both sides, the report said. In the months leading up to the talks, Pyongyang froze its nuclear and ballistic missile tests and demolished the only known nuclear test site.
