North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has decided to suspend military action plans against South Korea after several days of tension on the peninsula.

North Korea has put a significant damper on new hopes that negotiations with the US on its nuclear weapons program will resume soon.

The first deputy foreign minister Choe Son Hui accused Washington of using the dialogue with Pyongyang only as a tool in the "political crisis" within America. "We feel no need to sit face to face with the United States," she was quoted by the state media.

Choe responded to speculation that a new summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korea's ruler Kim Jong Un could be made possible even before the US presidential election in November. In this context, South Korea's President Moon Jae In again brought in an intermediary role. At a video summit with the EU last Tuesday, officials at his office said he wanted to do his best to bring a North Korea-US summit ahead of the US election. In the U.S., former National Security Advisor John Bolton speculated that Trump could meet Kim shortly before the election if he believed this would help his re-election.

An object that will prove all the more essential in the coming days since rain is not the only threat from the sky. North Korea indeed seems determined to dump a mountain of garbage of all kinds on its neighbor, ensures the daily The Korea Herald in an article relayed by CNews .

"There are even dreamers who hope our denuclearization measures will get a conditional lifting of sanctions while expressing hope of an 'October surprise'," said Choe. However, the United States was wrong if they thought negotiations were still working.

North Korea is subject to tough international sanctions for its nuclear program. Nuclear negotiations with the U.S. have made no progress since Kim's failed Trump summit in Vietnam in February 2019. Since then, North Korea has made it clear on several occasions that it is not interested in new talks with the United States until Washington submits new proposals.
