North Korean foreign ministry blasts USA pressure claims

North Korean foreign ministry blasts USA pressure claims North Korean foreign ministry blasts USA pressure claims

North Korea said its intention to get rid of nuclear weapons is not the result of the Trump administration's imposing sanctions and warned the United States not to mislead "public opinion", according to a report on Sunday.

The country's KCNA news agency said today the US was "misleading public opinion" by claiming their commitment to denuclearize was caused by American and United Nations actions.

"This act can not be construed otherwise than a risky attempt to ruin the hardly-won atmosphere of dialogue and bring the situation back to square one", a foreign ministry spokesman said, state media reported. Several US senators have even called for the president to win a Nobel Peace prize for his role in the Inter-Korean Summit.

North Korean President Kim Jong-un and his South Korean counterpart pledged to work toward the "complete denuclearization" of the peninsula when they met on April 27 - the first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade.

In mid-April, Trump confirmed that talks between the United States and North Korea are taking place at "very high levels", shortly before news broke that CIA Director Mike Pompeo had personally met Kim Jong-un following Pompeo's nomination as U.S. secretary of state. Earlier, the White House said that it would maintain "maximum pressure" on North Korea to wrap up its nuclear program ahead of Trump's meeting with Kim.

The spokesman also reportedly warned the USA to not "deliberately provoke" North Korea by raising human rights issues in the country.

North Korea has criticized the USA and Japan for using pressure to achieve the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The spokesperson also said it would not be conducive to resolving the issue of denuclearization if Washington continued to pursue its pressure and military threats.

The US now has 28,500 troops stationed in South Korea as a legacy of the Korean War which, technically, never ended.
