Kim came up with the remarks at the reclusive country’s rubber-stamp parliament, the Supreme People’s Assembly, which gathered for another day to discuss the government’s political, economic and social agenda.

Pyongyang also tested a previously unseen hypersonic missile this week to joined major military powers in advanced weaponry.

The hotlines crashed in early August as kim protested against joint South Korea-U.S. military drills, just days after reopening them for the first time in a year.

The decision to reestablish the lines is to help “realise the expectations and desire of the entire Korean nation” for recovery and durable peace in cross-border relations, Kim said.

“We have neither aim nor reason to provoke South Korea and no idea to harm it,” he said, according to the official KCNA news agency.

South Korea’s Unification Ministry responsible for inter-Korean affairs appreciated Kim’s offer on the hotlines, but avoided comments on his other remarks.

Kim was harsh towards Washington, accusing President Joe Biden’s new administration of “employing more cunning ways and methods” in pursuing military threats while still offering talks.

“The U.S. is touting ‘diplomatic engagement’ and ‘dialogue without preconditions’ but it is no more than a petty trick for deceiving the international community and hiding its hostile acts,” Kim said.

The Biden administration has stated it reached out to Kim to break a halt in talks aimed at dismantling its nuclear and missile programmes in return for the relief in US sanctions.

Biden also criticized the missile tests as ‘destabilizing and threats’.
