News Story: DPRK urges Trump to end "anachronistic" policy toward Pyongyang

PYONGYANG, July 12 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Wednesday called the policy of U.S. President Donald Trump towards it "anachronistic" and advised the latter to make a "switch-over."

The official daily Minju Joson (Democratic Korea) said in a commentary that some former U.S. high-ranking officials and experts on the Korean affairs and other countries are expressing their strong doubts about the Trump administration's policy toward the DPRK, without specifying.

"Nearly six months have passed since the Trump administration appeared but it is now faced with a serious political crisis. This is attributable to its persistent, arrogant and self-righteous way of thinking," it said.

It said the Trump administration "made a great political mistake of applying the old way of thinking in which it handles international issues with strength to the settlement of the Korean affairs."

"It will never settle the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula with its anachronistic policy but further endanger the U.S. itself," said the newspaper of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly.
