At the press conference on March 15, North Korean Deputy Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui said that Chairman Kim Jong-un was `disappointed` because the second summit with US President Donald Trump at the end of February was not successful.

`We have no intention of giving in to the US demands (made at the summit in Hanoi) in any form. We are also not willing to participate in negotiations in this direction.`

North Korean Deputy Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui also said that, while President Trump was willing to negotiate, Secretary of State Pompeo and Security Advisor John Bolton created a `hostile and suspicious atmosphere` that prevented negotiations.

The above statement was made after US and North Korean officials both affirmed their readiness to resume nuclear dialogue even though the second summit failed to reach an agreement.

Commenting on North Korea’s move, Mr. Simone Chun, an analyst at the Korea Policy Research Institute, said to Sputnik: `I think North Korea is trying to pressure and respond to North Korea’s views.`

Expert Chun added: `In my opinion, what is happening shows that North Korea is trying to pressure the US to return to negotiations.

Meanwhile, according to expert Chun, South Korea – the negotiating bridge between the US and North Korea – is `in a difficult position` when US-North Korea negotiations have not achieved the desired progress on nuclear disarmament.

Recent survey results from the Realmeter organization show that the support rate for South Korean President Moon Jae-in has dropped sharply after the second summit between President Trump and Chairman Kim in late February.

‚ÄúSouth Korea wants the US to be more flexible with President Moon, especially with President Moon’s visions and plans on inter-Korean economic cooperation and exchanges.
