North Korea: US Attitude Is ‘Regrettable’ And ‘Gangster-like’

North Korea has branded the US attitude at the latest talks over its nuclear programme “regrettable” and “extremely troubling”.The statement, by an unnamed foreign ministry official, contradicted the version of events given by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just hours before. He had said progress was made during his two-day visit to Pyongyang. It was the first time he had visited North Korea since the Donald Trump-Kim Jong-un summit in Singapore. The North Korean statement, carried by the official KCNA news agency, said the US had gone against the spirit of the summit by putting unilateral pressure on the country to abandon its nuclear weapons.“We had anticipated the US side would come with a constructive idea, thinking we would take something in return,” the North Korean statement said. “But through the high-level talks, the trust between the DPRK and the United States is facing a dangerous situation where our resolve for denuclearisation, which has been firm and steadfast, may falter.” Kim Jong-un has promised to work towards denuclearisation, but details on how this will be achieved remain thin.After the Singapore summit, which also saw the US offer “security guarantees” to North Korea and promise to end its military drills with South Korea, Mr Trump claimed that the North no longer posed a nuclear threat. However, the president has since renewed sanctions on North Korea, while US intelligence officials have said there is evidence North Korea continues to upgrade the infrastructure for its nuclear and missile programmes.Photo Credit: Getty
