North Korea's chief negotiator said nuclear talks with the US had broken down, blaming inflexibility from Washington. The North Korean negotiator Kim Miyong Gil read a statement outside the North Korean Embassy in Stockholm on Saturday saying the US had not met expectations.
The talks were the first between the US and North Korea since the February breakdown of the second summit between US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un in Vietnam. North Korea has since resumed missile tests, including an underwater-launched missile that fell inside Japan's exclusive economic zone Wednesday. Washington maintains the talks were productive and the US will be returning to Stockholm in two weeks to continue discussions.
