Quoted: Agence France Presse on Pence Meeting w/North Koreans

Mintaro Oba, a former State Department diplomat specialising in the Koreas, tweeted that “it’s entirely possible that North Korea scheduled the reported secret meeting with VP Pence fully intending to cancel so that they could play the blame game.”
“Sudden cancellations/withdrawals are a well-established part of the North Korean playbook,” added Oba, now a speechwriter in Washington.
