North Korea threatens to stall denuclearization in warning to US

North Korea threatens to stall denuclearization in warning to US”

"The U.S. should, even at this belated time, respond to our honest efforts in a corresponding manner", North Korea added in its statement.

The foreign ministry, which had earlier slammed Washington's "alarming" impatience for denuclearisation, accused the USA of clinging to an "outdated acting script".

Donald Trump has touted the summit with Kim Jong-un in Singapore as a historic breakthrough.

The Kim Jung Un regime is claims U.S.is making "outrageous arguments" that North Korea has to denuclearize first; Greg Palkot reports.

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.

The US has insisted it is vital to maintain diplomatic and economic pressure on the North.

North Korea warned Thursday that there could be no progress in its denuclearization as it accused some senior US officials of trying to strengthen global sanctions on Pyongyang.

North Korea has condemned the USA for placing fresh sanctions on it and called on the country to respond to its efforts to improve bilateral ties.

Last month, North Korea accused the United States of using "gangster-like" tactics in the negotiations.

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.

"Expecting any result, while insulting the dialogue partner and throwing cold water over our honest efforts is indeed a foolish act that amounts to waiting to see a boiled egg hatch out".

The fresh anger out of Pyongyang comes as top diplomats from the USA have strongly criticised the North's commitment to denuclearisation.

"They have to understand that the global community still expects them to denuclearize and so we're willing to wait if they want to wait, but we're not willing to wait for too long", said Haley, who has pushed through three United Nations sanctions packages since arriving at the world body 18 months ago.

According to Iranian media, Mr Ri said his country would seek to retain its nuclear skills for when the USA would revert to a more aggressive position against Pyongyang.

"Since we know that the United States will never give up its hostile policy toward us, we will hold onto our nuclear knowledge", he was quoted by local media.
