North Korea Says US "Throwing Water" Over Confidence-Building Efforts

But it accused unidentified high-level 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".

North Korea's nuclear weapons program has caused global tension for decades and the rhetoric and threats from Kim and Trump had been especially hostile before their June meeting.

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 overture came from Pyongyang, the ministry said, which suggested Thursday the two sides hold talks to "review progress" since the April summit that paved the way for a landmark meeting between Kim and US President Donald Trump in Singapore in June.

"As long as the US denies even the basic decorum for its dialogue partner. one cannot expect any progress in the implementation of the DPRK-US joint statement including the denuclearization", said Pyongyang's foreign ministry, using the initials of the country's official name, warning regional security could suffer.

The White House and State Department did not immediately return requests for comment.

"It's just North Korea that has not taken the steps we feel are necessary to denuclearize", Bolton said.

On Wednesday, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the United States was "not willing to wait for too long" for North Korea to take steps toward denuclearising.

"This is all in North Korea's court", Haley told reporters travelling with her during a visit to Colombia.

The United States was "attempting to invent a pretext for increased sanctions against the DPRK".

The foreign ministry said that despite their efforts to work with the US - by stopping their missile launches and nuclear tests - America continues to insist on "denuclearization first", and continues to encourage global sanctions against the North.

Asked about the possibility of additional meetings, Bolton said Trump in a recent letter to Kim proposed sending Pompeo back to North Korea, and that Trump was ready to meet with Kim any time. "What we need is performance from North Korea on denuclearization".

In a statement, the North Korean foreign ministry accused the United States of "insulting the dialogue partner and throwing cold water over our honest efforts for building confidence which can be seen as a precondition for implementing" the agreement between Trump and Kim.
