So Kim Jong Un gave up his US hostages and destroyed his nuclear testing tunnels… And the US gave up nothing.
On Thursday night (Friday morning in Korea) the North Korean government released a statement:
– North Korea is still willing to sit down at “any time”
– The U.S. decision is not in line with the “ideals of mankind” and was unexpected by North Korea considering the preparations
North Korea announced it was still open to talks with the United States.
