White House adviser Bolton urges North Korea to act on denuclearization
Earlier this month, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Russia, China and other countries against any violation of worldwide sanctions on North Korea that could reduce pressure on the North to abandon its nuclear weapons.
The United States was "attempting to invent a pretext for increased sanctions against the DPRK".
"We're going to continue to apply maximum pressure to North Korea until they denuclearize, just as we are to Iran".
North Korea on Thursday accused the United States of acting in bad faith, saying Washington's push for full sanctions pressure against Pyongyang would stall progress on the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.
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.
On the same day a United Nations report, submitted after six months of work, accused North Korea of breaking previous economic sanctions.
Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, also said this week that North Korea has not taken the steps necessary to denuclearise.
The announcement by an official at the South's Unification Ministry, which handles inter-Korean issues for Seoul, comes amid attempts by Washington and Pyongyang to follow through on nuclear disarmament vows made at a summit in June between President Donald Trump and Kim.
The country claimed that the U.S.is denying it "basic decorum" and is clinging "to the outdated acting script which the previous administrations have all tried and failed", warning that they "cannot expect any progress in the implementation" of the joint agreement between the two countries reached earlier this year.
Pyongyang's Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho is now on a visit to Iran where President Hassan Rouhani warned the U.S. could not be trusted after Tehran's experience of having the Trump administration tear up an Obama-era deal to ease sanctions.
Donald Trump met North Korean Kim Jong-un for the first time in June.
Ri told Rouhani that Washington's pullout from the 2015 pact and restoration of sanctions was an "action against worldwide rules and regulations", IRNA said.
Pyongyang also returned the remains of some U.S. soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean war in a gesture meant to break down mistrust between the countries, it said. Some experts say that North Korea does not want to denuclearize first or maybe denuclearize at all because it wants a long, drawn-out process that sees external aid shipped in in return for abandoning nuclear weapons.
