Pyeongyang’s Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho won’t attend this year’s UN General Assembly: NK News
North Korea’s Foreign Minister will NOT attend
this year’s UN General Assembly. That’s according to NK News on Friday, citing
multiple informed sources. It’s not clear why, but if true, this will
mark Ri Yong-ho’s first absence from the meeting… since becoming foreign minister in 2016. Some anticipated he could meet his American
counterpart Mike Pompeo on the sidelines,… reviving momentum for denuclearization talks. An analyst told NK News that if Ri does not
attend the UN General Assembly, it would confirm Pyeongyang’s “hardening line” on Washington
over the past couple months.
