Haley: North Korea ‘maybe changing their mind’ on nuclear talks

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un might be having second thoughts about his pledge to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, a top U.S. ambassador said Tuesday.

“Are they wishing or maybe changing their mind on denuclearization?” Nikki Haley, the U.S. representative at the United Nations, told the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. “It’s possible. But we’re not going to change our mind on the sanctions.”

Her comments are another sign that negotiations over the dismantling of the regime’s nuclear program have reached an impasse, days after the cancellation of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s scheduled trip to Pyongyang. U.S. officials are frustrated with North Korea’s recalcitrance, while Kim's regime is demanding economic relief in advance of any major concessions related to the nuclear program.

They were promised a tit for tat sanction reduction,and when NK made it's first monumental move to de nuke nothing was lifted.That made them believe that we did not intend to honor our agreement.

All they provided were a few token gestures of compliance expecting sanction relief and big handouts.....well guess what.
