The UN calls the USA and North Korea to renegotiate “seriously”

 The UN Secretary General, António Guterres, said today that “it is time” for the United States and North Korea to “seriously” resume their negotiations and set a “road map” for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

“We encourage the two countries to move forward with the negotiations, I think we need a clear roadmap to clarify things and to know exactly what the next steps are going to be,” Guterres told a news conference.

The head of the United Nations said so while Washington met with US President Donald Trump and North Korean intelligence leader Kim Yong-chol.

After the historic summit last year, talks between the two countries have shown little progress in recent months, although Trump has repeatedly been willing to hold a second meeting with Kim Jong-un.

Despite this lack of progress, Guterres dismissed today any possible initiative by the UN to try to revive the dialogue.

“At this moment I do not think it makes sense to try to pressure the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the United States for a negotiation, because I think the two sides are willing to do so,” the Portuguese diplomat said.
In that sense, Guterres said he does not like to develop initiatives “only to be published in the newspapers,” but only when “they can be useful.” (EFEUSA) .-
