Norks are no-shows at repatriation talks

| July 12, 2018 | 14 Comments

According to Stars & Stripes, the North Korean delegation was a no-show at scheduled talks for repatriation of servicemembers’ remains at Panmunjom today;

The no-show fuels growing skepticism over the North’s commitment to the “complete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula as promised during the June 12 summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the talks would be held in the truce village of Panmunjom after his fraught visit to North Korea last week, although he added the caveat that “it could move by one day or two.”

Officials from the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency traveled to the U.N.-controlled area in the heavily fortified border for the meeting but the North Koreans never showed up, according to official sources.

South Korean media also reported that the North Koreans didn’t show up, citing government officials.

This is my shocked face. While I hoped against hope, I kind of figured that the North Koreans were just playing games. There’s still time for them to salvage the talks and peace on the peninsula, but my money is staying in the bank.

    Maybe the traffic light was stuck on red so the car couldn’t make it to the talks.

    Well, time for the sanctions to snap back into place and add a few more while we’re at it.

    Yeah, I was hopeful that we would make some progress but also, yeah, in the back of my mind I was all like, “I ain’t holdin’ my breath”.

    Mind games. The Norks are pros at it.

  9. Maybe they use a different calendar and clock and are easily confused when they have to use what the rest of the world uses. They’ll show up a week from the appointed time and then accuse us of being no shows.

    South Korean President Insists Negotiations with North Korea ‘on Track’

    Breitbart News Link

    “There are mixed views but I believe the two sides have entered a normal process and that practical working-level negotiations have been launched,” he said. “There have been questions if the denuclearisation North Korea has been talking about was the same as the denuclearisation the US and South Korea have been talking about.

    Not giving up yet. While disappointing, this isn’t a game changer. The sanctions are still in place, and the Nork’s know it.
