  • John Bolton Says North Korea Hasn't Done Much To Rid Itself Of Nuclear Weapons

North Korea on Thursday denounced USA calls for enforcing worldwide sanctions despite its goodwill moves and said progress on denuclearization promises could not be expected if Washington followed an "outdated acting script".

North Korea's foreign ministry said on Thursday it had stopped missile and nuclear tests and dismantled "the nuclear test ground", yet the United States still insisted on "denuclearisation first".

"We hoped that these goodwill measures would contribute to breaking down the high barrier of mistrust existing between the DPRK and the USA and to establishing mutual trust".

The US has made repeated proposals to North Korea on denuclearization, all of which have been rejected, according to senior diplomatic sources.

The latest statement by the North's foreign ministry also accused USA officials of "going against the intention of President Trump" by "making baseless allegations against us and making desperate attempts at intensifying the global sanctions and pressure".

At the first-ever meeting between sitting leaders of the United States and North Korea in June, President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un pledged in a joint statement to work toward the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

"However, the USA responded to our expectation by inciting worldwide sanctions and pressure against North Korea", said a statement.

But the North Korea statement separates Mr. Trump from "high-level officials", thus allowing the the country to rail against the US, while leaving the door open for the president to continue his dialogue with leader Kim Jong Un.

An official end to the Korean War was a key part of the Panmunjom Declaration signed by Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in in their historic summit in April, ahead of Trump and Kim's meeting.

They said it had also not agreed to definitions of the key terms of any agreement, or to any inspection of its nuclear test site, which it claims to have decommissioned, but which USA intelligence officials have said may still be operable.

Seoul has been examining nine cases of potential imports of North Korean coal, which would breach a resolution passed last August by the U.N. Security Council to choke off funding for Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

According to Iranian media, Mr Ri said his country would seek to retain its nuclear skills for when the U.S. would revert to a more aggressive position against Pyongyang.

One of the goals of North Korea's missile and nuclear program - which a confidential United Nations report recently said was still operational - is to defend itself from USA aggression and attempted regime change. Speaking to CNN on Monday, he said "we're waiting for the North Koreans to begin the process of denuclearization, which they committed to in Singapore and which they've not yet done".
