Alwaght- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he will meet Donald Trump again only if the US stops "its current way of calculation," the country's state media said on Saturday.
"First of all, it is necessary for the United States to stop the current way of calculation and approach us with a new way of calculation," Kim said in Pyongyang at the first meeting of the 14th session of the Supreme People's Assembly of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, KCNA reports.
"What is obvious is that if the United States sticks to the current political way of calculation, the prospects for problem solving will be dark and very dangerous."
Trump and Kim have met twice, in Hanoi in February and Singapore in June, but failed to agree on a deal to lift sanctions in exchange for North Korea abandoning its nuclear and missile programs.
In February, President Donald Trump cut short his Hanoi, Vietnam, summit with Kim with no joint agreement or statement after Kim insisted all US sanctions be lifted from his country. Since the tense summit, North Korea has threatened to suspend denuclearization talks with the United States.
Trump said on Thursday he was open to meeting Kim again, but in his speech on Friday, the North Korean leader said the outcome in Hanoi had forced him to question the strategy he embraced last year of international engagement and economic development.
"The second DPRK-US summit in Hanoi in February raised strong questions about whether the steps we took under our strategic decision were right, and gave us a sense of caution about whether the US is even really trying to improve the DPRK-US relationship,” Kim said, using the initials of North Korea’s full name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
In Hanoi, the US came with “completely unrealisable plans” and was “not really ready to sit with us face-to-face and solve the problem,” Kim said. “By that sort of thinking, the US will not be able to move us one iota even if they sat with us a hundred, thousand times, and will not be able to get what it wants at all,” he said.
"The US said recently that it is thinking again of a third DPRK-US summit and have been strongly implying problem-solving through dialogue,” Kim continued. “But they continue to ignore the basic way of the new DPRK-US relations, including withdrawing hostile policies, and mistakenly believe that if they pressure us to the maximum, they can subdue us".
