Referring to Cyrus Vance’s forthcoming visit to Beijing and his possible meetings with North Korean officials, Vice Premier Heo Dam noted during a recent discussion with Ambassador Dumitru Popa that there are currently no favorable conditions for an American-North Korean dialogue. The DPRK government does not plan to contact Cyrus Vance during his visit to Beijing.
Referring to certain allegations according to which the PRC is interested in retaining American troops in South Korea, Heo Dam implied that North Korean officials are not fully aware of their Chinese counterparts’ intentions. However, in official talks, the PRC declares to support the DPRK in terms of Korean reunification.
