North Korea says US is mak­ing un­fair de­mands

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - News/obituaries - — LOS AN­GE­LES TIMES

The United States and North Korea gave starkly con­trast­ing re­ports Satur­day af­ter two days of talks in­tended to firm up Py­ongyang’s prom­ise to dis­man­tle its nu­clear weapons sys­tems.

The dif­fer­ent de­scrip­tions raised fears that dis­ar­ma­ment ne­go­ti­a­tions may be doomed be­fore they re­ally be­gin.

While Sec­re­tary of State Michael Pom­peo claimed lim­ited progress, North Korea ex­pressed “re­gret” over the talks, ac­cused the U.S. of mak­ing un­fair “uni­lat­eral” de­mands and warned of “a dan­ger­ous phase that might rat­tle our will­ing­ness for de­nu­cle­ariza­tion that had been firm.”
