Kim offered to set up a hotline again

North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong Un has expressed interest in setting up an important communications hotline with South Korea. The news agency Reuters reported this information in a report.

The report said that despite proposing a settlement with South Korea, Kim complained to the United States that Washington was offering to negotiate with North Korea without abandoning its hostile policy.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has proposed reopening a “hotline” for contacts with South Korea. This information was given in the report of BBC online on Thursday.

Pyongyang cut off the hotline in August this year in protest of a joint South Korean-US military exercise. Now Kim Jong-un has proposed to launch the hotline again. He made the proposal at North Korea’s annual parliamentary session in Pyongyang.

Speaking at the fifth session of the 14th Supreme People’s Assembly, Kim Jong-un said he was interested in reopening the hotline with South Korea. Kim Jong-un has accused the United States of offering to hold talks with North Korea without changing its foreign policy.

The North Korean leader said the United States was talking about diplomatic involvement. However, these words of the country are nothing but to deceive the international community. By saying this, the United States is trying to hide its hostile activities.

According to North Korean state media, Kim Jong-un has expressed interest in reopening the communication hotline between the two Koreas in early October.

Kim Jong-un added that whether inter-Korean relations would be restored or whether the current deteriorating situation would continue depends on the attitude of the South Korean authorities.

The country’s state-run KCNA news agency reported, “The United States is talking about diplomatic contacts. But the issue is cheating with the international community. At the same time, hostile activities are nothing more than covert tactics. ”

KCNA further said that North Korea’s top leader has been interested in re-launching the hotline since the beginning of October. But whether communication between the two Koreas will actually resume will depend on South Korea’s decision.

Earlier, Kim Jong Un’s sister said last week that North Korea was interested in talks with the South. If they put an end to hostile policies.
