North Korea ignores Biden’s calls

JOE BIDEN’s repeated attempts to reach out to the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un have been met with a stony silence, as tensions continue to simmer between the two foes.

The new US President made several behind-the scenes attempts in February to establish a dialogue with Pyongyang, but all to no avail. These even included an approach to the North Korean mission at the United Nations in New York. In a further snub to Mr Biden, North Korean state media has yet to acknowledge that he won the 2020 elections in December.

“To date, we have not received any response from Pyongyang.

“This follows over a year without active dialogue with North Korea, despite multiple attempts by the US to engage.”
