North Korea Says Hopes for Talks with U.S. Fade on Pompeo Remark

North Korea criticized U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo’s remark that Pyongyang was guilty of “rogue behavior,” saying hopes for talks with Washington are fading and the U.S. should not put its patience to the test any longer.

Choe Son Hui, North Korea’s vice foreign minister, said Pompeo’s remark made planned working-level talks between the two countries more difficult and North Korea is “being pushed to re-examine all the measures” it’s taken so far, the official Korean Central News Agency cited Choe as saying in a statement.

Pompeo said on Aug. 27 in a speech to the national convention of the American Legion that “we recognized that North Korea’s rogue behavior could not be ignored.”
