VK Singh In Pyongyang To Meet Leadership As North Korea Issues Fresh Threat Against US


Minister of State external affairs VK Singh is in North Korea to meet the top leadership. He reached Pyongyang on Wednesday and will be holding talks with his counterpart. There is no confirmation yet on whether Singh will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

The visit comes as North Korea threatened to suspend talks with the United States of America if the talks were based on benefits for just one side. North Korea further stated that the US was taking its intention of denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula as a sign of weakness. Last month, when Kim Jong-un had visited South Korea to meet President Moon Jae-in, India had welcomed the move hoping that it would pave way for lasting peace and reconciliation in the Korean peninsula and that India supports all efforts to bring about peace and stability in the peninsula.

In 2015, North Korean foreign minister Ri Su Yong had visited New Delhi to hold talks with external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj. India has time and again condemned North Korea’s nuclear ambitions. “Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) continued pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile programmes and its proliferation links pose a grave threat to international peace and stability,” a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs had said last year when North Korea had launched its International Ballistic Missile.
