North Korea can show it’s ready for negotiations by stopping missile launches, Tillerson saysAugust 7, 2017
The Washington Post:
MANILA — Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Monday that North Korea could show it is ready for negotiations by stopping missile launches, and said he told Russian diplomats that the Kremlin’s meddling in U.S. elections had created “serious mistrust” of them among Americans.
North Korea, meanwhile, reacted to the U.N. Security Council’s new sanctions by threatening a “thousands-fold” retaliation against the United States and asserting that sanctions would never force the country to abandon its nuclear program. “There is no bigger mistake than the United States believing that its land is safe across the ocean,” according to the government statement carried by the official media.
