'Insulting': North Korea hits out at US for call to enforce sanctions

Open this

"It will serve as a platform to discuss plans to overcome the current situation - the main point will be to come up with a plan to convince the U.S. to cooperate on improving inter-Korean ties despite its reluctance to lift worldwide sanctions against North Korea", said Kim Joon-hyung, an worldwide studies professor at Handong Global University.

North Korea accused the United States on Thursday of pushing for worldwide sanctions despite goodwill moves by Pyongyang and said that progress on denuclearisation promises could not be expected if Washington continued to follow an "outdated acting script".

Bolton, in an interview on Fox News, said U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was prepared to return to North Korea for another meeting with Kim.

"As long as the U.S. denies even the basic decorum for its dialogue partner and clings to the outdated acting script which the previous administrations have all tried and failed, one can not expect any progress in the implementation" of the terms of the North Korea-U.S. joint statement, including denuclearization, a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesperson said in an English-language statement carried by the country's official Korean Central News Agency.

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

"However, the USA responded to our expectation by inciting worldwide sanctions and pressure against the DPRK", it said in a statement carried by KCNA news agency.

So now, we have to adjust and make sure that we can defend what we do in space and deter anyone from challenging us there". But, earlier this week, Mr Mattis said he is in "complete alignment" with Mr Trump's concerns about U.S. space assets.

The foreign ministry said actions taken by the USA equate to "throwing cold water" over their efforts, calling it an "indeed foolish act that amounts to waiting to see a boiled egg hatch out".

"As long as the US denies even the basic decorum for its dialogue partner. one cannot expect any progress in the implementation of the DPRK-US joint statement including the denuclearization", said Pyongyang's foreign ministry, using the initials of the country's official name, warning regional security could suffer.

The White House did not respond to requests for comment.

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

In a statement, the ministry said the two sides would hold high-level talks on Monday on the northern side of the truce village of Panmunjom to "discuss preparatory matters regarding a South-North summit".

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.
