North Korea Threatens to Resume Nuke Development over Sanctions

North Korea Threatens to Resume Nuke Development over Sanctions”

"I'll be meeting this week in New York City with my counterpart Kim Yong Chol", Pompeo said in an interview with FOX News on Sunday, adding that it will be "a good opportunity to continue the denuclearization discussions that were set out just a few months back".

"If the US keeps behaving arrogantly without showing any change in its stand, while failing to properly understand our repeated demand, the DPRK may add one thing to the state policy for directing all efforts to the economic construction adopted in April and as a result, the word "pyongjin" may appear again", Friday's statement said, referring to North Korea by its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Decisions over major military exercises for next year are expected to be made by the end of the year.

The decision to conduct them was made a few days after the threats by North Korea to resume nuclear program, in the case of continued global pressure.

Pompeo said Sunday he will meet with Kim Yong Chol, a vice chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, in NY late this week to spur talks for denuclearizing the country. Pompeo did not provide the location and date for the meeting, which will likely be focused on persuading North Korea to take firmer steps toward denuclearization and setting up a second summit between their leaders.

In recent weeks, North Korea has pressed harder for what it sees as reciprocal concessions by the United States and other countries.

North Korea has not tested a ballistic missile or nuclear weapon for almost a year, and has said it has shuttered its main nuclear test site with plans to dismantle several more facilities.

Pompeo previously expressed "discontent" with the deal that created the no-fly zone, which South Korean sources said became a key sticking point for the United States because it would effectively prevent close air support drills.

Report: Under the renewed US sanctions, countries found to be buying crude oil or other commodities from Iran may lose access to the USA financial system and the right to do business with American entities. The exact date and place of the meeting of the leaders of the United Kingdom and Russian President Vladimir Putin is not reported.

"With Kim's visit to South Korea also planned this year, North Korea appears to be dwelling long on the time of his Russian trip", Woo said.

American officials have remained sceptical of Kim's commitment to giving up his nuclear arsenal, however, and Washington says it will not support easing global sanctions until more verified progress is made.

Pompeo says President Donald Trump has made it clear to the North Koreans - "no economic relief until we have achieved our ultimate objective".

North Korea stepped up its attack on US-led sanctions, threatening to resume its nuclear programme if the measures aren't lifted.
