North Korea on Friday threatened to halt negotiations with the Trump administration on denuclearization. Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui said at a Pyongyang news conference that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton had created an "atmosphere of hostility and mistrust" that prevented a deal at last month's summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Choe said relations between Trump and Kim were "still good and the chemistry is mysteriously wonderful," but that Kim had doubts about the value of further talks. She said Kim would soon decide whether to end a moratorium and resume nuclear and missile tests.
