NORTH KOREA SAYS US MUST 'COMPLETELY ELIMINATE' ITS NUCLEAR ARSENAL FIRST AS PEACE TALKS REACH NEW LOW

North Korea has said it will not give up its nuclear weapons until the US first “completely eliminates” its own arsenal in the region, a bombshell demand that threatens to derail peace talks.

In a statement issued by the official KCNA news agency, North Korea set out clearly for the first time what it sees as the definition of “complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula”, the vague goal agreed to by Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un at a summit in Singapore in June.

The US withdrew its tactical nuclear weapons from South Korea in the 1990s, but maintains an umbrella of weapons capable of defending South Korea and Japan.

Washington has already ruled out reducing this military presence as part of any deal. It suggested after Singapore that Mr Trump and Mr Kim had agreed that North Korea could give up its nuclear weapons in exchange for “security assurances” from the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, folks, the bromance here is OVER.

The only question remaining is, how soon will the US government decide take up a hostile posture again, and lob missiles and military exercises aimed at North Korea?

And even if North and South Korea want to reunify, will the US government allow that to happen?!?
