North Korea threatens to stall denuclearization in warning to US

Her remarks come as U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton said earlier this week that President Trump recently sent a personal letter to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, . offering to send Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Pyongyang again to keep the denuclearization talks going. Notably, the statement didn't directly criticize Trump.

"The U.S. should, even at this belated time, respond to our honest efforts in a corresponding manner", the ministry said.

"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. It also claims that "high-level officials within the USA administration are making baseline allegations against [North Korea] and making desperate attempts at intensifying the worldwide sanctions and pressure".

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.

"They made public the North Korea Sanctions and Enforcement Actions Advisory; and additional sanctions".

Pyongyang has also stepped up its calls for a formal end to the Korean War, which some analysts believe is meant to be the first step in the North's effort to eventually see all 28,500 USA troops leave the Korean Peninsula. Among the agreements was holding another inter-Korean summit in the fall in Pyongyang.

Pyongyang insisted that the USA 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.

North Korean officials have toured China to discuss economic development and speculators are snapping up property along their common border. South Korea's unification minister will lead the delegation from Seoul but North Korea, which proposed the Monday meeting first, did not confirm the makeup of its delegation. It also wasn't clear when another leaders' summit might happen.

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

North Korea went ahead with the return of the remains of some USA soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean war in a goodwill measure aimed at breaking down mistrust between the countries, it said.
