Kim Jong Un And I ‘Fell In Love’

Known for its loyalty and cleverness, the Pungsan breed - a hunting dog with thick, creamy white coat, pointy ears and hazel eyes - is one of the National Treasures of North Korea.

North and South Korea see declaring the end of the war as a key to building trust between the U.S. and North Korea.

North Korea has been seeking a formal end to the 1950-53 Korean War, but the United States has said Pyongyang must give up its nuclear weapons first.

He said the United States was insisting on a "denuclearisation first" policy that "increased the level of sanctions".

However, earlier this month South Korean leader Moon Jae-in completed a high-profile, three-day visit to Pyongyang - the first by a Southern leader to the North's capital in a decade.

Ri also said that North Korea was "unwavering" in its commitment to implementing the joint declaration signed in Singapore by U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Ri said it was a "pipe dream" that continued sanctions and USA objection to a declaration to formally end the Korean war would ever bring the North to its knees.


Mr Trump meanwhile has said he expects to have a second summit with Mr Kim in the "not too distant future". It is designated as a North Korean "natural monument" animal.

"The perception that sanctions can bring us on our knees is a pipe dream of the people who are ignorant about us". Post-summit nuclear negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang were rocky and quickly settled into a stalemate.

Satellite images released in July revealed that North Korea were putting the finishing touches on a ballistic missile factory at the same time as the US-North Korea summit.

But his comments were infused with what came across as impatience at the slow pace of progress in a process the world hopes will cause Pyongyang to abandon an arsenal of nuclear-tipped missiles that aims to accurately target the entire USA mainland.

Mr Trump joked about the criticism he would receive following his positive comments about the North Korean dictator, saying some would consider it "unpresidential". "But the problem is that the continued sanctions are deepening our mistrust".

"If the party to this issue of denuclearisation were South Korea and not the United States the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula would not have come to such a deadlock".
