US take on Kim's mention of 'dialogue' is wrong - N. Korea

Kim Yo-jong (pictured), sister of North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, stated that the United States misinterpreted the meaning of her brother's mention of readiness for "dialogue" with Washington.

According to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), she pointed out that the US optimism is a signal that Washington has "wrong expectations" regarding the future relations between the two countries.

Kim Jong-un asserted earlier that Pyongyang is ready for both dialogue and a confrontation with the US. Washington's Special Representative for North Korea Policy Sung Kim described Kim's mention of dialogue as a positive development in the bilateral ties.
