Deliberately? Would explain why they ran.

North Korea condemned U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton on Saturday, calling his recent remarks on denuclearization talks "nonsense" possibly stemming from a lack of understanding of their leaders' intentions.
North Korean First Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui accused Bolton of saying in a recent interview that the United States needs to see a "real indication" that Pyongyang is ready to give up its nuclear weapons before any third summit between their leaders. Her remarks were carried by the Korean Central News Agency in answer to a question about Bolton's interview.

"Bolton ... showed above himself by saying such a nonsense that the U.S. needs to see a real indication from north Korea that it has made a strategic decision of giving up its nuclear weapons before the 3rd DPRK-U.S. summit and that it should be ready to discuss what President Trump talked on a Big Deal," Choe was quoted as saying.

"Bolton's remarks make me wonder whether they sprang out of incomprehension of the intentions of the top leaders of the DPRK and the U.S. or whether he was just trying to talk with a certain sense of humor for his part, with its own deviation," she added. "I warn you that it would do yourself no good if you continue to throw away such remarks devoid of discretion and reason."
Experts say that North Korea's recent criticism of top U.S. nuclear negotiators, using individual officials' remarks, not official government statements, appear to be well-coordinated not to provoke too much, while sending a warning message to Washington not to create impediments ahead of a possible resumption of their negotiations.

"We should see that North Korea is controlling the level of its criticism," Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul, said. "It appears to say that if the U.S. puts pressure on it, it has no choice but to respond. But it still appears to try to keep the line of dialogue intact by not going as far as to hurt trust between North Korea and the U.S."
