N. Korea Rescinds US Envoy's Invitation

Sunday, 09 Feb 2014 11:06 PM

North Korea has cancelled a US envoy's visit to discuss the fate of a Korean American imprisoned there, and civil rights leader Jesse Jackson offered to travel instead, American officials said Sunday.

No reason was given for Pyongyang's decision to rescind Ambassador Robert King's invitation.

But State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki stressed that North Korea had promised last year it would not use jailed Christian missionary Kenneth Bae as a "political bargaining chip."
