North Korea ripped the USA government on Thursday for insisting that Pyongyang fully denuclearize, claiming that Trump administration officials are "going against" President TrumpDonald John TrumpOhio county finds hundreds of uncounted votes in already too-close-to-call special election Nunes suggested at private fundraiser that GOP majority is needed to protect Trump Ex-Bush spokesman: Trump shouldn't talk in his "loopy ways" to Mueller MORE by criticizing the nation.

A foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement on state-run KCNA that North Korea was still willing to institute the broad agreement reached at the June 12 summit meeting in Singapore between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

"They called for collaboration in forcing sanctions and pressure upon us even at the global meetings".

"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".

Earlier Thursday, North Korea's Rodong Sinmun said in a commentary that ending the Korean War is "the first process for ensuring peace and security not only in the Korean peninsula but also in the region and the world". "It's just North Korea that has not taken the steps we feel are necessary to denuclearize".

North Korea's foreign ministry said on Thursday it had stopped testing missiles and conducting nuclear tests "followed by dismantling the nuclear test ground", and yet the United States still had insisted on "denuclearisation first". It also wasn't clear when another leaders' summit might happen.

It has urged Washington to take reciprocal steps including officially declaring an end to the war and dropping sanctions.

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.

At the June summit with Trump, Kim made a vague commitment to denuclearisation - far from the longstanding U.S. demand for the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantling of Pyongyang's atomic arsenal.
