The US Secretary of State expressed “discontent” with peaceful negotiations between North and South Korea, which signed a military pact during last month’s summit without consulting him.

True to the spirit of American exceptionalism, Pompeo complained about being left out of the loop regarding the historic peace talks between the two Koreas. US President Donald Trump never skips a chance to brag about his supposed contributions to peace between the nations, extending the US’s addiction to interventionism even to bilateral treaties like this one – negotiations between neighbors half a world away from American shores.

Pompeo’s complaint was revealed by South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha, speaking to an opposition lawmaker about a recent phone call with Pompeo. “I wouldn’t say he made strong impressions. discontent, about how he was not briefed sufficiently,” she said.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un agreed to set up a no-fly zone near the border, end military drills, and begin removing landmines and guard posts in the De-Militarized Zone separating their halves of the Korean peninsula, among other measures. The Pyongyang meeting last month was their third such summit.
