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

"They called for collaboration in forcing sanctions and pressure upon us even at the global meetings".

US National Security Advisor John Bolton has also weighed in on the issue, saying Sunday that nobody in Trump's administration is "starry-eyed" about the prospect "of North Korea actually denuclearising".

North Korea said in a statement on Thursday that "some high-level officials within the US administration" were making "desperate attempts at intensifying the worldwide sanctions and pressure".

The rival Koreas plan to hold high-level talks on Monday to prepare for a third summit between their leaders, as Pyongyang called on the United States to reciprocate its "goodwill measures" by easing sanctions and stopping demands that the North denuclearize first.

With such moves, "one can not expect any progress in the implementation of North Korea-US joint statement including the denuclearization, and furthermore, there is no guarantee that the hard-won atmosphere of stability on the Korean Peninsula will continue", said the spokesperson.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told North Korea's foreign minister that the United States can not be trusted, Tehran's state media said, as the United States seeks a deal to rein in the North's nuclear and missile programmes.

North Korea also accused unidentified high-level U.S. officials of "going against the intention of President Trump" by "making baseless allegations against us and making desperate attempts at intensifying the worldwide sanctions and pressure".

Meeting in Trump Tower Was to Get Information on Clinton
This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere . At that point, he said, Trump's attorneys would raise what Trump has alleged are Mueller's "conflicts of interest".

North Korea's top diplomat, Ri Yong Ho, visited Iran as the United States reintroduced sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

South Korea's presidential spokesman said last month that Seoul wants a declaration of the end of the 1950-53 war sooner than later.

Earlier on Thursday, North Korea's Rodong Sinmun said in a commentary that ending the Korean War is "the first process for ensuring peace and security not only in the Korean peninsula but also in the region and the world".

The newspaper added that it is "abnormal" to see distrust and animosity going on between the North and the United States even now, saying that it is time to take action toward declaring an end to the war.

Despite the agreement to denuclearise the Korean peninsula struck during a landmark summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump, "we preserve our nuclear science as we know that the Americans will not abandon their hostility toward us", Ri said, according to the conservative Mehr news agency.

Satellite images from last Friday indicate North Korea has carried out additional activities to dismantle a key missile launch facility, the Washington-based 38 North think-tank said on Tuesday.
