US should “roll back” its hostile policy against North Korea before any dialogue between the two countries can be launched, North Korea’s deputy UN envoy said.
“As everybody knows, the Americans have gestured [toward] dialogue,” Deputy UN Ambassador Kim In Ryong told reporters Friday, as cited by Reuters. “But what is important is not words, but actions.”
Any dialogue between the two countries, however, would be impossible unless the US ceased its “hostile policy,” the envoy said.
“The rolling back of the hostile policy towards DPRK is the prerequisite for solving all the problems in the Korean Peninsula,” he said. “Therefore, the urgent issue to be settled on the Korean Peninsula is to put a definite end to the US hostile policy towards DPRK, the root cause of all problems.”
