SEOUL (Reuters) – A recent remark by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about “North Korea’s rogue behavior” would make talks with the United States more difficult, the North’s KCNA news agency on Saturday quoted its vice foreign minister, Choe Son Hui, as saying.

Pompeo’s comment was unreasonable and provocative, Choe said, according to the agency.
