North Korea sacks top 3 military officials as Trump-Kim meet nears

North Korea has removed its top three senior military officials, a senior US official says, a move that expert think is aimed jump-starting direct talks with South Korea and the United States.

The unnamed US official’s remarks on Sunday confirmed an earlier report by South Korea’s Yonhap news agency, Reuters reported Monday.

Citing unidentified intelligence sources, Yonhap said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had chosen No Kwang Chol, first vice minister of the Ministry of People’s Armed Forces, to replace Pak Yong Sik as defense chief, while also replacing the chief of General Staff of the Korean People’s Army (KPA), Ri Myong Su with his deputy, Ri Yong Gil.

North Korea’s state news agency KCNA had announced earlier that Army General Kim Su Gil was replacing Kim Jong Gak as director of the KPA’s General Political Bureau.

  1. Kim is going to learn a very valuable lesson about agreements made with USA very soon.

    Gaddafi, Saddam and Iran learn the lesson the hard way, aggreements are not worth the paper they are written on. Especially with Bolton/Trump at the table.

  2. I hope as do many others that Kim Jong is sincere in wanting peace. If he does choose peace he deserves the Nobel peace prize.

  3. Dismantling of nuclear program, does not mean giving up nuclear weapons, just to make it clear for all to understand.

  4. Kim is showing how Trump is acting in bad faith and how the US isn't offering anything meaningful, very smart. Trump and his people aren't even being pleasant or professional. The US government is all about force and intimidation. They do the same with US citizens. Everything is a threat. Trump thinks threatening people is negotiating.

  5. If only North Korea would come to its senses and realize that Washington will treat it no different than it treated Iraq, Libya and Syria after they were foolish enough to believe its promises.
