North Korea chides USA sanctions pressure on denuclearization process

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

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 worldwide sanctions and pressure".

Following the landmark inter-Korean summit in April, the two held a lower-key meeting in May in Panmunjom after the United States abruptly canceled its planned summit with the North - which it later pulled a U-turn on.

Earlier this month, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Russia, China and other countries against any violation of global sanctions on North Korea that could reduce pressure on the North to abandon its nuclear weapons.

In its statement, North Korea outlined "goodwill measures" it has taken since the historic meeting in June between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, including its discontinuation of nuclear testing and returning the remains of fallen Korean War soldiers to families in the U.S.

The foreign ministry said actions taken by the US equate to "throwing cold water" over their efforts, calling it an "indeed foolish act that amounts to waiting to see a boiled egg hatch out". "Any violation that detracts from the world's goal of finally, fully denuclearizing North Korea would be something that America would take very seriously".

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

Druze army vets campaign against Israel's Jewish state law
Israel's declaration of independence in 1948 established it as a Jewish state but also stipulated equal rights for its minorities. On Tuesday, Arab-Israeli leaders filed a petition with the country's Supreme Court against the nation-state law.

The country claimed that the U.S.is denying it "basic decorum" and is clinging "to the outdated acting script which the previous administrations have all tried and failed", warning that they "cannot expect any progress in the implementation" of the joint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.

The White House and US State Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

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.

But, following the meeting, US intelligence officials said they believed North Korea was "deceiving" the USA, saying the regime was bolstering production for nuclear weapons at "multiple secret sites" in recent months.

USA officials familiar with the talks, however, told Reuters that North Korea had yet to agree to a timeline for eliminating its nuclear arsenal or to disclose its size, which US estimates have put at between 30 and 60 warheads.

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