North Korea Lashes Out At Administration Officials 'Going Against' President Trump

North Korea's Kim Jong Un may not be willing to denuclearize on U.S. terms

Since the June meeting, Pyongyang has announced measures including halting missile and nuclear tests.

South Korea says a total of 35,000 tons of North Korean coal and pig iron worth $5.8 million illegally entered its ports previous year, in possible violations of United Nations sanctions.

In the most recent sign of growing frustration between Washington and Pyongyang, North Korea criticised senior American officials for insisting that North Korea give up its nuclear weapons first before easing sanctions.

The statement accused USA diplomats of 'going against the intention of President Trump' by refusing to lift actions until there is proof of denuclearisation in the hermit state.

The foreign ministry said in a statement on Thursday that the US should not expect North Korea to follow through on promises to denuclearize as long as Washington adheres to "old scenarios" that have failed in the past.

The foreign ministry in Pyongyang accused the United States of following an "outdated acting script" and demanded more concessions before offering any in return.

North Korea's criticism of the U.S. comes after Trump's national security adviser John Bolton said this week that the administration does not feel Pyongyang is living up to its end of the deal.

Mike Pence expected to announce plans for ‘Space Force’ in U.S
But, earlier this week, Mr Mattis said he is in "complete alignment" with Mr Trump's concerns about United States space assets. Let's hope that's the branch's new motto because it's pretty much flawless . "Peace only comes through strength", Pence said.

The two Koreas, who agreed to increase sports exchanges at a landmark summit between the South's President Moon Jae-in and the North's leader Kim Jong-un in April, held a friendly basketball match in Pyongyang last month. Last month, Washington warned against loosening sanctions on Pyongyang after Russian Federation and China suggested discussing such a move. But North Korean officials also indicated they are also growing tired of the U.S.'s increasing pressure for full denuclearization.

But Trump has already given Kim some concessions, including ending joint military drills with South Korea.

Two South Korean under-15 teams, FC Gangwon and Yeoncheon Miracle, will compete in the Ari Sports Cup in Pyongyang.

Guterres made the statement following talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo on Wednesday to discuss the US-led effort to rid North Korea of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Pyongyang insisted that the US should reciprocate to the North's suspension of missile launches and nuclear tests and other goodwill gestures such as the return of remains of American troops killed in the Korean War. They said that when a session with Pompeo reached an impasse last month, North Korean officials asked if he would like to step outside to call the president, who declared after the June summit that North Korea was 'no longer a nuclear threat'.

It has urged Washington to take reciprocal steps including officially declaring an end to the war and dropping sanctions.

Declaring an end to the war is the "demand of our time" and will be the "first process" toward a peace and security guarantee, the state-run "Rodong Sinmun" newspaper said.
