Kim’s statement shows that it is likely to put pressure on Washington to step up its nuclear arsenal and abandon what North Korea considers to be a hostile policy towards North Korea, but negotiations resume. Some experts say they are also preparing for.

However, negotiations collapsed after Trump rejected Kim’s request for relief of widespread sanctions in exchange for a partial abandonment of nuclear capabilities.
The Biden administration has been working on a new approach to describe North Korea’s nuclear program as “coordinated and practical.” Details of North Korea’s policy have not been released, but U.S. officials have said Biden will curb Kim’s nuclear program between a face-to-face meeting between Trump and Kim and former President Barack Obama’s “strategic patience.” It suggests seeking an intermediate point for this.

Kwak Gil Sap, head of the Wan Korea Center, a website specializing in North Korean issues, has taken two approaches on Facebook, Kim’s statement: strengthening military power and preparing for negotiations. I wrote that it suggests that. However, Kim said it is likely to focus on strengthening military power and demanding that the United States withdraw hostile policies, rather than rushing back to negotiations.
Kim said last week that North Korean troops need to be vigilant to protect national security.
Jung Sung-chan, an analyst at South Korea’s private Sejong Institute, said North Korea is likely to return to negotiations but will not accept an immediate call for complete denuclearization.
