PYONGYANG, April 20 (Xinhua) -- A senior diplomat of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) slammed John Bolton, U.S. national security adviser, for his recent "dim-sighted" views on bilateral ties, official media here reported Saturday.
Bolton told Bloomberg News on Wednesday that the United States needs to see a real indication from the DPRK that it has made a strategic decision to give up its nuclear weapons before the 3rd DPRK-U.S. summit.
Calling Bolton's remark "nonsense," Choe Son Hui, vice-minister of the DPRK's Foreign Ministry, told the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) that "Bolton should at least have understood about what kinds of substantive communications are made between the top leaders concerning the 3rd round of summit before he had ever opened his mouth."
"It would do yourself no good if you continue to throw away such remarks devoid of discretion and reason," she was quoted by KCNA as saying.
The DPRK's top leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump have held two summits, in Singapore and Vietnam respectively. The second meeting held in Vietnam's capital Hanoi ended without an agreement on Feb. 28.
