N Korea slams Bolton for 
‘stupid’ remarks

A senior North Korean official slammed US National Security Advisor John Bolton yesterday, accusing him of making “stupid” comments on stalled denuclearisation talks and warning “nothing good” would come of them.

Bolton is the second, top ranking US politician to be criticised by Pyongyang in recent days, after it labelled Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as “reckless” Thursday, demanding his removal from talks over the North’s banned nuclear programme. Those comments came hours after the isolated state claimed to have tested a new kind of weapon.

Pyongyang and Washington have been at loggerheads since the collapse of a summit between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump earlier this year.
