North Korea insists on replacing US Secretary of state Pompeo

The head of Department in the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK on questions of North America Kwon Jong Gun believes that the US Secretary of state Michael Pompeo stops to improve relations between the two countries and insists on his replacement. He noted that the participation of Mr. Pompeo in further negotiations could lead it to a dead end.

“The experience of the Hanoi summit has shown that, whatever the problem, if Pompeo intervenes, the case will be confused, and the results frustrated. In case of a possible resumption of dialogue with the US, I would like that our dialogue partner was not Pompeo and the other person, which would have been more careful and Mature in fellowship with us”,— quotes the words of Kwon Jong Gun.
