Ahead of Proposed Summit, North Korea Rips Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton

Published 2 Hours Ago Updated 2 Mins Ago

North Korea has a message for U.S. President Donald Trump ahead of next month's summit: Don't listen to your new hard-line national security adviser, John Bolton.

After announcing early Wednesday that it was pulling out of high-level talks with Seoul because of a new round of U.S.-South Korean military exercises, the North took aim at Bolton and said it might have to reconsider whether to proceed with the summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un because it doubts how seriously Washington actually wants peaceful dialogue.

Though North Korea has been for the most part silent about its intentions for the meeting, the announcements underscore two of its biggest concerns — the future of the nearly 30,000 U.S. troops in South Korea and claims coming out of Washington lately that sanctions and Trump's "maximum pressure" policy are what drove Kim to the negotiating table.

But defanging Bolton, the most militant of Trump's advisors, is now also apparently a major priority.

"We do not hide our feeling of repugnance toward him," North Korea said of Bolton in a statement attributed by state-run media to senior Foreign Ministry official Kim Kye Gwan.

1. Reports say

They have been offered peace and a prosperity to correspond to the south.

If they do not want that then we do everything we can to make sure they continue to have disease and starvation, simple choice.
