The tone of the North Korean Foreign Ministry, highlighting the lack of progress in the implementation of the denuclearization issue, is in stark contrast to the far more optimistic rhetoric from the US special representative for North Korea, Stephen Biegun.
Crown Prince Mohammed told Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law, and John Bolton, the president’s national security advisor, that Mr Khashoggi was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, according to the Washington Post.
U.S. National security adviser John Bolton mocked the leaders as stooges of socialism. “These tyrants fancy themselves strongmen and revolutionaries, icons and luminaries,” he said. “In reality, they are clownish, pitiful figures more akin to Larry, Curly, and Moe.”
