PYONGYANG, North Korea -- North Korea on Sunday criticized what it called "misleading" claims that President Trump's policy of maximum political pressure and sanctions are what drove Pyongyang to the negotiating table. The new comments come with just weeks to go before Mr. Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are expected to hold their first-ever summit.
The North's official news agency quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman warning the claims are a "dangerous attempt" to ruin a budding detente on the Korean Peninsula after Kim's summit late last month with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. -snip
Robtard really is the hardest coper on this board.
The start of Korean peace is so obviously a cataclysm of Trumps actions that not even North Korea is truly denying it. "misleading", is basically a term to use when you can't really deny allegations outright, but still have to uphold your countries reputation. And yes, it almost certainly was the sanctions that brought NK to the bargaining table in the first instance. But sure, let's take this non-statement from a a country that convinces it's people that the internet is a myth as a trufact, and not a face-saving anecdote to salvage the fact that they're caving.
Your initial point of contention days ago was that the media was not reporting on the release of the detainees. It also hadn't happened then and the White House distanced themselves from the claims of their imminent release.
Anyhow. N.K. has said it would be releasing the three detainees this morning, so kudos to Moon and Donnie, you did it guys. Good job. Definitely a win here.
