North Korea says it’s willing to resume fake nuke talks with US in order to play Trump like a fiddle again! Seriously; they are approaching the table with a strong posture:
North Korea said Monday it’s willing to resume nuclear diplomacy with the United States in late September, but only if the U.S. comes to the negotiating table with satisfactory new proposals.

If the proposals don’t satisfy North Korea, dealings between the two countries will come to an end, First Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui said.

In a statement carried by state media, Choe said North Korea has given the U.S. enough time to map out new proposals to salvage the nuclear negotiations.
This echoes what was said earlier this year:
In April, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said the U.S. must come up with new proposals to revive the talks by December.
They bought themselves quite a bit of time with almost no effort or expense; a great example of statesmanship, IMO. Too bad I'm too biased to admire it, eh.
