N. Korea Slams Trump for Trying to Halt Its Nuclear, Missile Programs
Monday, 13 November 2017 13:09 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

North Korea denounced U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday for trying to halt the North's nuclear and missile programs.

The North Korean Foreign Ministry issued its first official statement on Trump's trip to Asia, saying it "is a warmonger's trip for confrontation with our country, trying to remove our self-defensive nuclear deterrent.''

Pyongyang also accused Trump of trying to isolate it from the global community and weaken its government.

"Reckless remarks by an old lunatic like Trump will never scare us or stop our advance," the ministry said.

Much of Trump's five-nation Asia tour has focused on North Korea. Trump pressed Chinese President Xi Jinping privately on the North Korea nuclear issue, Trump administration officials said. According to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Trump told Xi, "You're a strong man. I'm sure you can solve this for me."

Xi urged his South Korean counterpart Saturday to reopen talks with North Korea to help manage the security threat posed by North Korea, according to Reuters news agency reports citing China's state-owned news service, Xinhua.

On the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam, Xi reportedly encouraged South Korean President Moon Ja

e-in to re-engage with North Korea in an attempt to get the North to end its nuclear and missile programs, which violate U.N. Security Council resolutions.

The leaders of South Korea and China agreed on the need to seek a peaceful resolution to the North Korean threat, South Korea's presidential spokesman reportedly said. As a result, the spokesman said, the two countries will engage in more intensive talks on all levels.
