Korea hits out at Pompeo, warns hopes for US talks 'disappearing'”

The plenary of the Supreme People's Assembly approved "some amendments and supplements to the Socialist Constitution", according to the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), including the status of the chairman of the State Affairs Commission (SAC), a position held by Kim, Efe news reported.

"Pompeo has gone so far in his language and it made the opening of the expected DPRK-US working-level negotiations more hard", First Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui said in a statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency.

In a speech Tuesday apparently meant to highlight the challenges facing the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump, Pompeo had referred to North Korea's "rogue" behavior as negotiations on dismantling the country's nuclear weapons program have remained deadlocked.

"As a responsible member of the global community, our country has always been collaborating in worldwide actions to sanction North Korea".

The North Korean first vice foreign minister said Tuesday's speech resulted in "amplifying our people's bad feelings toward Americans more and more".

She said Pyongyang's expectations of dialogue with the United States are gradually disappearing and that the country is being pushed to reexamine all the measures it has taken so far.

"The U.S. had better not try to test our patience any longer with remarks that irritate us if it does not want to make horrendous regrets [afterward]".

"We are very curious about the background surrounding the USA head of foreign affairs making such imprudent remarks and we will keep an eye on what the calculation is".

The freeze in negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang set in after a February summit between Trump and Kim in Vietnam collapsed when the USA rejected North Korean demands for broad sanctions relief in exchange for a partial surrender of its nuclear capabilities.

In a recent statement, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho warned that the USA would be "sadly mistaken" if it planned to continue its "confrontation" with the North through sanctions.

June saw Kwon also say the DPRK-U.S. negotiations can only be resumed when "someone with a good sense of communication" from the U.S. side engages with them.

Pyongyang's angry words come as working-level talks with Washington over denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula remain gridlocked, despite an agreement in June between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump to kickstart the process. -South Korea joint military exercises and the adoption of new weapons, complicating the reopening of the talks.
