US can't be trusted, Iran's Rouhani tells North Korea

US can't be trusted, Iran's Rouhani tells North Korea US can't be trusted, Iran's Rouhani tells North Korea

North Korea on Thursday accused the United States of acting in bad faith, saying Washington's push for full sanctions pressure against Pyongyang would stall progress on the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

-North Korea summit in June between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Seoul has been examining nine cases of potential imports of North Korean coal, which would breach a resolution passed last August by the U.N. Security Council to choke off funding for Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

But there was no financial transaction made, which would constitute another violation of the United Nations sanctions, as the companies took coal in return for mediating trade between North Korea and Russia, Roh said.

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. It also claims that "high-level officials within the USA administration are making baseline allegations against [North Korea] and making desperate attempts at intensifying the worldwide sanctions and pressure".

"Dealing with Americans is hard, and as our main goal is total disarmament of the whole Korean Peninsula, it is necessary that the Americans also abide by their commitments but they refuse to do so".

"They made public the North Korea Sanctions and Enforcement Actions Advisory; and additional sanctions". Among the agreements was holding another inter-Korean summit in the fall in Pyongyang.

North Korea will preserve its nuclear know-how despite its promise of denuclearisation to the United States, Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said during a visit to Tehran, Iranian media reported on Thursday (Aug 9).

The inter-Korean meeting on Monday will be held at Tongilgak, a North Korean-controlled building in the border village of Panmunjom.

North Korea went ahead with the return of the remains of some US soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean war in a goodwill measure aimed at breaking down mistrust between the countries, it said. It also wasn't clear when another leaders' summit might happen. South Korea's unification minister will lead the delegation from Seoul but North Korea, which proposed the Monday meeting first, did not confirm the makeup of its delegation.

In the meantime, both Koreas are seeking an end of the Korean War.

Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, also said this week that North Korea has not taken the steps necessary to denuclearise.
