Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s proposal to meet with Kim Jong Un, leader of North Korea, has been rejected by a senior official, who called the proposition a “kind of propaganda or advertisement.”
In a recent interview with Reuters, Trump said he would be willing to talk with Kim Jong Un in an attempt to stop Pyongyang’s nuclear program.
So Se Pyong, North Korea ambassador to the UN in Geneva, said, “It is up to the decision of my Supreme Leader whether he decides to meet or not, but I think his idea or talk is nonsense.” The official says Trump’s remarks are only intended to promote his bid for president, calling it “a gesture for the presidential election.”
The North Korean official also noted that President Barack Obama also made unfulfilled promises to meet with the country’s leader during his candidacy.
In January, North Korea conducted its fourth nuclear test and triggered tougher international sanctions after the launch of a long-range rocket one month later.
The ambassador said the country has agreed to return to six-party talks on its nuclear program. While Russia and China were in favor of the idea, the U.S., South Korea and Japan rejected it.
So Se Pyong says North Korea has no plans to share its nuclear technology with other countries.
