North Korea chides United States for pressing sanctions

North Korea accused the United States on Thursday of pushing for worldwide sanctions despite goodwill moves by Pyongyang and said progress on denuclearization promises could not be expected if Washington continues to follow an "outdated acting script".
During landmark talks with US President Donald Trump in June, the North's leader Kim Jong Un signed up to a vague commitment to denuclearisation, far from the longstanding American demand for the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantling of Pyongyang's atomic arsenal.
The statement comes days after the USA stressed the need to keep up pressure on Pyongyang through tough sanctions imposed over its nuclear weapons programme.
"We hoped that these goodwill measures would contribute to breaking down the high barrier of mistrust" between Pyongyang and Washington, the North's Foreign Ministry spokesperson said.
North Korea also 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".
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 US troops leave the Korean Peninsula.
A statement from the North Korean government, broadcast via the Korea Central News Agency, accused USA figures of spouting "falsehoods" about the North Korean nuclear issue.
