SEOUL, South Korea – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said he is willing to restore severed inter-Korean hotlines next month, but accused the United States of proposing talks without changing its “hostile policy” to the country, state media KCNA reported on Thursday.

In his speech at the Supreme People’s Assembly, the reclusive country’s rubber-stamp parliament, Kim said US military threats and hostile policy remain unchanged under the new administration of President Joe Biden.

The Biden administration has said it had reached out to Pyongyang to break an impasse over talks aimed at dismantling its nuclear and missile programs in return for US sanctions relief.

Kim expressed his willingness to reconnect inter-Korean hotlines starting October “as part of efforts to realise peoples’ hopes for better relations and lasting peace” between the rivals, the official KCNA news agency said.

North Korea severed the hotlines in early August, just days after reopening them for the first time in a year amid strained ties. — Reuters
