Special envoy believes that the Dprk's latest comments were unnecessary, but the rows at the same time hand out.
the UNITED states'special envoy for north Korea, Stephen Biegun, calling North korea's latest statements "hostile and unnecessary".
he says at a press conference in South korea's capital, Seoul.
the Speculation has been that Biegun might try to improve the relationship between the UNITED states and north Korea prior to a deadline that north Korea has put at the end of 2019.
Here want the country to u.s. concessions.
If this does not happen, will north Korea try to go "a new way", however, is not specified.
The last few weeks there have been a number of fierce actions from the north Korean regime, which also claims to have conducted several tests at the Sohae facility, which has been used to send satellites up.
- We have heard them all, says Biegun on the announcements.
- It is regrettable that the tone of these announcements directed against the UNITED states, south Korea, Japan and our friends in Europe have been so hostile and negative, and so unnecessary.
For just a few days ago warned the general Pak Jong Chon from north Korea of "hostile forces", including the UNITED states, must refrain from provocations, if they want to spend the end of the year in peace.
