Korea slams United States officials for sanctions

  • John Bolton Says North Korea Hasn't Done Much To Rid Itself Of Nuclear Weapons

USA officials, according to North Korea, "are making baseless allegations against us and making desperate attempts at intensifying the worldwide sanctions", against what they believe to be Trump's intentions to better relations between the two countries.

Following the landmark inter-Korean summit in April, the two held a lower-key meeting in May in Panmunjom after the USA abruptly canceled its planned summit with the North - which it later pulled a U-turn on. Those followed contentious remarks last week by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho on the sidelines of a regional forum in Singapore.

Trump has hailed North Korea's moves since his historic summit with leader Kim Jong Un during a summit in Singapore in June, where the USA agreed to provide unspecified security guarantees in exchange for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The two sides vowed to work towards North Korea's denuclearisation but have struggled to reach a deal to meet that goal, with the United States insisting sanctions pressure must be maintained during negotiations.

The United States was "attempting to invent a pretext for increased sanctions against the DPRK".

The stark comments come after Trump and Kim's June meeting in Singapore, during which the White House said the North had made firm pledges to rid itself of its nuclear weapons.

"This is all in North Korea's court", Haley told reporters traveling with her during a visit to Colombia, where she attended the inauguration of new Colombian President Ivan Duque and met migrants who had fled Venezuela.

North Korea said it has halted nuclear and missile tests and dismantled its nuclear test site as practical steps toward denuclearization, but it lashed out at the US for unilaterally demanding North Korea denuclearize first.

Asked about the possibility of additional meetings, Bolton said Trump in a recent letter to Kim proposed sending Pompeo back to North Korea, and that Trump was ready to meet with Kim any time.

USA officials have declined to comment on a report on the Vox news website on Wednesday saying that North Korea had repeatedly rejected a US proposal for it to cut its nuclear arsenal by 60 to 70 per cent within six to eight months.

"We expect the Russians and all countries to abide to the U.N. Security Council resolutions and enforce sanctions on North Korea", he said.

Still, North Korea said it remains steadfast in its commitment to building trust and implementing in good faith the joint statement step by step.
