Pyongyang, according to South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo his special envoy for the United States were executed. The reason for the execution would be the failure of the second summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Us president, Donald Trump.
The North Korean diplomat Kim Hyok-chol was the second summit meeting between Trump and Kim prepared. That found last February in the Vietnamese Hanoi, but turned out to be a failure.
For that reason it would be Kim, along with four other officials from the North Korean ministry of Foreign Affairs, in march, executed on the Mirim airport in Pyongyang. “He was accused of spying for the United States, due to a bad report of the negotiations, and not able to conceive of the Us intentions’, claims to be at least a North-Korean, anonymous source to the newspaper Chosun Ilbo.
The newspaper does not say who the four other executed North Koreans. Yet according to the newspaper, Kim Yong-chol, the North Korean equivalent of the American minister of Foreign Affairs Mike Pompeo, sent to a labour camp in the province of Jagang.
