Kim Jong Un says peace on Korean peninsula depends on U.S. attitude: KCNA

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, during his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, said peace and security on the Korean peninsula will entirely depend on the future U.S. attitude, state media Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said on Friday.

 

Kim's remarks are seen as keeping pressure on the U.S. to be "more flexible" in accepting Pyongyang's demands to ease sanctions, compared to the U.S. stance during the collapsed second U.S.-North Korea summit in February in Hanoi, as he said earlier this month.

 

Kim said at the time he will wait "till the end of this year" for the United States to change its mind.

 

"The situation on the Korean peninsula and the region is now at a standstill and has reached a critical point where it may return to its original state as the U.S. took a unilateral attitude in bad faith at the recent second DPRK-U.S. summit talks," KCNA reported Kim saying, using North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

 

Kim invited Putin to North Korea at a convenient time and Putin accepted, KCNA said.

 

The first face-to-face talks between Putin and Kim, held on an island off the Russian Pacific city of Vladivostok on Thursday, did not appear to have yielded any major breakthrough.

 

The two leaders had an in-depth discussion on the ways for the two countries to promote the strategic communication and tactical collaboration in the course of ensuring peace and security on the Korean peninsula and in the region, KCNA said.

 

Putin said afterward he thought a deal on Pyongyang's nuclear programme was possible and that the way to get there was to move forward step-by-step in order to build trust.

 

But any U.S. guarantees might need to be supported by the other nations involved in previous six-way talks on the nuclear issue, Putin said, which was seen as an attempt to use the summit to strengthen Russia's diplomatic clout as a global player.

 

Both Russia and North Korea agreed to take positive measures in several fields in order to further cooperate in trade, economy, science and technology, KCNA said.

KJU version of ''depend on the US attitude" is that you, the US will provide us with aid such food, fuel open channels to commerce and business all over the world, allow us to continue to sell arm and nuke to anyone with money, don't hassle us about our nuke stockpiles and huge armies, don't bug us about our starving and imprisoned population, and if all well in a few years, will sign some sort of 'peace agreement'...

If the past is any indication of the future, then absolutely, peace on that peninsula depends on America.

Looking at Vlad's posture in the photo and the look on Kim's face I think Vlad had just let one rip ...

Sorry, I think the word I was looking for was that Vlad had just trumped ...
