It is noted that Kim Jong-Un spoke at the plenum of the Central Committee of the Workers ‘ Party of the DPRK (WPK), where he analyzed the policy of the new American administration in relation to Pyongyang.
“The Secretary-General (Kim Jong -Un) stressed the need to prepare for both dialogue and confrontation (with the United States-ed.), especially comprehensive preparation for confrontation to protect the dignity of our state,” the North Korean leader was quoted as saying by KCNA.
In May, US President Joe Biden said he was ready to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un if he agreed to denuclearization. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that the United States has completed a review of its policy towards the DPRK. According to her, the new policy differs from the courses of the two previous presidents – “it will not be built on a big deal or rely on strategic patience.” The White House said it would be “calibrated practical progress” and the US would continue to consult with South Korea and Japan, as well as other allies in the region.
