US: North Korea marks 2-year anniversary of Trump-Kim summit by vowing to build up military

North Korea marks the two-year anniversary of the first summit between Kim Jong Un and President Trump by vowing to build its forces to “tackle the long-running military threat from America.”

The Foreign Ministry’s statement, Ri Son Gwon, published in a press release on Friday, comes as he also said the North would never provide Trump with meetings and high-profile details that he could be proud of having fulfilled foreign policy goals unless he got something good in return.

“The question is whether there is a need to keep hands in Singapore, as we see that there is nothing better to be done on the DPRK-U.S. relations just to maintain human relations between our senior leadership and the U.S. president,” Ri was quoted as saying.

“We will never give a senior American official another package to be used (politics) without getting a refund,” he added. “There is nothing more pretentious than an empty promise.”

Ri demanded the last two years of diplomacy but has revealed that the U.S. continues to pursue a “regime change” in Pyongyang and intimidates the North with strikes that a legitimate nuclear strike and “isolation and conflict.”

“The DPRK’s safe purpose is to build a reliable force to deal with long-term military threats from the U.S.”

At their 2018 summit in Singapore, the first meeting held between the working leaders of the two countries, Kim and Trump agreed that they would develop bilateral relations and issued a statement on the Korean Peninsula without explaining how and when it would happen.

But negotiations ended during the second summit in February 2019, after the U.S. rejected North Korea’s demands for greater assistance in exchange for a partial commitment to North’s nuclear capabilities.

Trump and Kim met for the third time in June last year on the Korean border, but the subsequent summit went against what North Koreans described as an “old American attitude and attitude.”

Kim, who had unceremoniously suspended the nuclear test’s timeline and willingness to negotiate with Washington and Seoul, entered the new year promising to improve his nuclear deal. The North in recent months has conducted a series of short-range stroke tests.

Trump and Kim shook hands during their 2019 meeting.

In addition, North Korea has suspended almost all cooperation with South Korea while urging Seoul to ignore U.S.-led sanctions and to restart Korean economic projects that will promote health in the North’s economy.

It also threatened to terminate a deal for Korean troops arriving in 2018 while expressing anger over South Korea’s inability to prevent activists from supplying anti-Pyongyang tracts at the border.
