News Story: DPRK warns Moon of "brain-washing" by U.S. at upcoming summit with Trump

PYONGYANG, June 13 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Tuesday warned South Korean President Moon Jae-in of potential "brain-washing" efforts by U.S. President Donald Trump during their upcoming summit in Washington.

"The U.S. has buckled down to taming the South Korean authorities in an undisguised manner," said the Korean Central News Agency in a commentary.

The DPRK has criticized Moon for submitting to U.S. pressure and maintaining a hardline policy toward Pyongyang.

"What matters is that the present chief executive of South Korea (Moon), who caught the interest of the public for his remarks that 'he would always say no to the U.S.,' has now gone servile to the U.S.," said the commentary.

The United States has engaged in a "cynical ploy" against moderate governments in Seoul in the past to pressure them into accepting U.S. policy and maintaining an alliance with Washington, it said.
