North Korea calls US Vice-President Pence ‘ignorant and stupid’

19 4 63

US Vice-President Mike Pence is “ignorant and stupid” and risks “nuclear showdown,” a senior North Korean official said ahead of talks between the two sides next month.

In an article in state-owned news agency KCNA on Tuesday, Choe Son-hui said Pyongyang would not “beg the US for dialogue” nor try to persuade them to attend talks.

“I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing out from the mouth of the US vice-president,” said Choe, who has been involved in several diplomatic interactions with the US over the past decade.

“We will neither beg the US for dialogue nor take the trouble to persuade them if they do not want to sit together with us.”
