Opinion: North Korea head a nuclear disarmament conference is just satirical
“Ambassador TAE SONG HAN of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, President of the Conference on Disarmament, said that it was an honour and privilege for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to assume the presidency of the Conference. Ambassador Han congratulated his predecessor, the Ambassador of Cuba, who had made considerable efforts to take the Conference forward during his presidency. He also expressed gratitude to the Chinese and Cuban presidencies for their valuable contributions in establishing the five subsidiary bodies. He recalled that the United Nations Charter obligated all delegates to work collectively for achieving peace and security for all nations. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea remained committed to contributing to global peace and disarmament and attached importance to the work of the Conference on Disarmament. The Conference was the single multilateral disarmament negotiating forum and had a role to play in ensuring global peace and security. Throughout the presidency, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea would be guided by the rules of procedure, in particular rule 18. It would respect every delegation’s position when organizing the business of the Conference, while promoting a positive atmosphere of building trust, cooperation and productive dialogue among members” (UN Geneva – ‘Conference on Disarmament Holds First Plenary under the Presidency of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’ 02.06.2022).
The three last Presidents of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) or North Korea has worked to produce and the ability to build nuclear weapons. The North Koreans has used all tactics, metrics and markets to get a hold on technology or ability to make nuclear weapons. This has been done by all the leaders of Pyongyang. Therefore, the acknowledgment and the recognition of DPRK in the UN body of the disarmament conference of nuclear weapons is foolishness.
This isn’t the place or the sort of forum where the North Korean state has anything to do. They are neither believable or a representative state for that matter. The DPRK would sell their peasants as slave labour to get the right scientists, uranium and possible technical facility to build a “fat man” or a “little man” in 2022.
That’s why the news of DPRK working and representing this UN body or conference is ridiculous. It is like we supposed to take a blind eye or forget about what the DPRK have been working on for all these years.
It is the sort of propaganda victory and perfect for internal spin. That the DPRK see this as a way of legitimizing itself. DPRK can really build upon this… and everyone else should speak out about it. Because, this doesn’t make sense. This is like letting the criminals run the investigation into the crimes they are committing on a regular basis.
Pyongyang will get heat for this and righteously so. Since it doesn’t make sense that the DPRK is leading this… Peace.

North Korea: Rumours about the Supreme Leader…
In Pyongyang, North Korea there are rumours coming out about the state of their Supreme Leader Kim Jung-Un. The third generation dictator, the family of all marvellous inventions and origins. The family of Kim’s and the dynasty of Kim. This is maybe now in jeopardy.
We do not know at this certain moment. There is speculation that the President and Supreme Leader is already dead. Another rumour is that his in a vegetative state after a failed operation. The third, which is the most hopeful is that his on a beach chilling out before a new missile launch. However, none of these are verified.
The rumours are spread through news agents in Hong Kong and Japanese sources. There is also reports of a team of doctors coming from China. There are nothing new or unique dropped from Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) or Pyongyang Times.
There is even a speculation of the fourth in line of the Kim Dynasty, the first Woman Supreme Leader Kim Yo Jong. However, that is also baseless at the moment. There is no official report.
Surely soon, there will be some harsh words to the world. Some sort of Foreign Affairs writ, piece or article where the whole world is called bullies and so-on. Nevertheless, the locked and sealed of nation and their actions quickly get put into question. As the secretive affairs is their business as usual. However, the weird silence and rumours are sparking speculations.
I got no idea, if his dead or alive. If the Supreme Leader is eating Kimchi or in a vegetative state in some hospital in Pyongyang. If not if his planning to take a stroll on one of his beach resorts. Because, this are only speculations after rumours. While its even talk of a successor too.
It is not like we will see white smoke from Pyongyang. Not like there will be ballots or a higher court verifying the leadership. Neither the Workers Party Central Committee to handpick another one.
We just have to wait and see, what North Korea serves the world. If it is a another missile, another vindictive statement or if Kim Jung-Un dead. We don’t know, but have to wait for the official statement or evidence of life. Peace.
Opinion: North Korea warns the US again!
This is not the first time the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea or the North Korea fires some salvoes the way of the United States of America Administration. Especially the Trump Administration and their diplomats.
Just last year, the DPRK said this about the US: “The U.S. is fatally mistaken if it went to the extent of regarding that the DPRK would be compelled to accept, out of its patience, the demands reflecting its gangster-like mindset. A shorter way to denuclearization on the Korean peninsula is to remove deep-rooted mistrust and build up trust between the DPRK and the U.S” (KCNA: Foreign Ministry Spokesman on DPRK-U.S. High-level Talks, 07.07.2018).
So the North Koreans are tired of the gangsters in Washington DC. It is again another salvo from Pyongyang, This is not new, but this shows that the diplomatic relations are strained. What is happening is not reassuring. As the meetings, the supposed grand-deal or anything else haven’t changed anything. Only paid Kim Jong-Un for a few international trips and hotel service on the outside of North Korea.
“The DPRK-U.S. relations that could have been derailed and fallen apart several times due to such hostile acts and wrong habitual practices on the part of the U.S. are still maintained. It goes to the credit of the close personal relations between Chairman of the State Affairs Commission Kim Jong Un and President Trump. But there is a limit to everything. The close personal relations can never be kept aloof from the public mindset and they are never a guarantee for preventing the DPRK-U.S. relations from getting aggravated or for making up for. The U.S. trumpets the crucial measures taken by the DPRK for confidence-building as its own “diplomatic gains” but no substantial progress has been made in the DPRK-U.S. relations and belligerent relations still persists that there can be the exchange of fire any moment. The U.S. is seriously mistaken if it is of the idea of passing off in peace the end of this year, by exploiting the close personal relations between its president and the Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK for the delaying tactics” (Kim Yong Chol – ‘Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, (KAPPC) made public a statement on Oct. 27’, 27.10.2019).
If the Trump Administration want to be serious. There need to be more love-letters and maybe not the tough-guy letter to Erdogan. That is a bad look and not showing class. Neither the tact between two parties. There is time for Washington to get in the ones whose not gangsters and whose diplomats to actually act diplomatic. That is if they are serious about making the Korean Peninsula a peaceful and non-nuclear.
However, the non-action and the threats are not the thing to sustain this one. The fragile relationship seems like it needs some reassuring messages. Needs some love and care, just like flowers needs water and sun to stay alive. This is why the Trump Administration needs to do something. That is if they they care about their allies in South Korea and Japan. Since, they all need a peaceful DPRK. They don’t need missiles hitting vessels in South Korea or closer to Japan. That is not helping anyone.
Except getting the DPRK again in the headlines, just like missile testing and showing the brilliance of the industrial actions of the weapons program. Instead of finding a middle ground and some sort of arrangement that the DPRK and the US combined seems to win with. That is not happening right now. Just more hawkish activity or non-action. Both not making anything positive.
This got to change. That is if the US administration or the DPRK want this to work. Peace.
USA: Rep. Engel and Rep. Smith letter to President Trump on North Korea (21.02.2019)
Statement by H.E. Ri Yong Ho, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea at the General Debate of the 73rd Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations (29.09.2018)
Trump Administration acts gangster-like towards the DPRK [and it is not working]
“DON CORLEONE: Remember my new Consigliere, a lawyer with his briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns” (The Godfather, 1972).
In June 2018, President Trump and President Jong-Un signed a new agreement, which wasn’t particular special. There was no promise or change from the 1994 agreement. Therefore, the sudden rush of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to arrive in Pyongyang is showing, how misunderstood the Trump Administration has off it all. They have misunderstood the agreement and the diplomatic measures. Not that Trump has the wits to understand the trick the North Koreans has pulled-off. But they signed an agreement without technicalities and without measures securing denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Because on the 12th June 2018, they signed to: “ the DPRK commits to work toward” and that is not stating when or how. That is a vague statement, that could mean starting tomorrow or next century. Therefore, the Trump Administration haven’t gotten anywhere closer, than they were in 1994. Even if the Administration and the President itself thinks so.
What is why Secretary Pompeo suddenly continued on the “progress” as he thought he could ambush the Party and the dictatorship. They have already a clear statement and also shown the world, they are not ready to played by Washington D.C. leadership at this point. That Pompeo thought he could play this one easily out, than the previous administrations would have done the same. However, that has not worked.
DPRK have answered to Pompeo:
“The U.S. is fatally mistaken if it went to the extent of regarding that the DPRK would be compelled to accept, out of its patience, the demands reflecting its gangster-like mindset. A shorter way to denuclearization on the Korean peninsula is to remove deep-rooted mistrust and build up trust between the DPRK and the U.S. For this, both sides should be bold enough to be free from old ways which had only recorded failures and resolve the problem in a fresh manner which is never bound by the existing ways. A shortcut to it is also to take a step-by-step approach and follow the principle of simultaneous actions in resolving what is feasible one by one while giving priority to creating trust. But, if the U.S., being captivated in a fidget, tries to force upon us the old ways claimed by the previous administrations, this will get us nowhere” (KCNA: Foreign Ministry Spokesman on DPRK-U.S. High-level Talks, 07.07.2018).
If the Trump Administration thought this would be a straight forward easy game, than they are wrong. As the United States isn’t the most interesting partner for North Korea, that is China and South Korea. They are more cordial with diplomatic missions, but that is not the way of this United States. The erratic and unstable administration, who works on any whim of the President, instead of trying to figure the world out. They are blasting into the dry-wall and hoping nothing hits back.
The DPRK are not to be fooled and have calculated the efforts, all their efforts and thanks for the Singapore Summit in June, the President has gotten more respect is less lonesome in Pyongyang. He has more respect and more places to go than Beijing and Seoul. The North Korean leadership has more leverage and United States has given away theirs for a signature drive in Asia. What a waste of skin and possibility.
That is why “walking towards” can means a lot, but with no time-lines, not mechanisms or anything considering monitoring any level of progress, the North Koreans could do whatever, as the symbolic agreements is as worthless as the pen used by the Presidents.
Pompeo should have known this, but his attitude and arrogance, combined with the lack of tact, is the reason for the gangster-like ways. They are trying to ambush and change the ways of the DPRK without offering anything. That will not work, but than again, the US has lost their leverage and given way for the conference in June.
They just haven’t understood it yet. Because the Trump Administrations isn’t that educated or wise.

Marshall: Lawyered!… of nature” (How I Met Your Mother – The Playbook – Season 5, Episode 8, 2009).
Trump and his administration have been lawyered! Peace.
