North Korea says denuclearization hinges on USA reducing sanctions

President Donald Trump speaks at a rally in Wheeling

Earlier this month, the leaders of the two countries met in Pyongyang for talks that centred on the stalled denuclearisation negotiations.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho on Saturday said in an address to the United Nations General Assembly that Pyongyang would not denuclearize "without any trust" in the United States.

"Without any trust in the United States, there will be no confidence in our national security and under such circumstances, there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves first".

Donald Trump has told a cheering crowd that he and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "fell in love".

The two will live with South Korea's First Dog, Tori, who became the first shelter dog to take up residence at the South Korean presidential compound.

At the UN, North Korea repeated its request to the United States to declare the end of the 1950-1953 Korean war, which ended with a ceasefire but without a peace treaty.

"The US insists on the "denuclearisation-first" and increases the level of pressure by sanctions to achieve their goal in a coercive manner, and even objecting to the 'declaration of the end of war, '" Mr Ri said. "But the problem is that the continued sanctions are deepening our mistrust", Ri said.

Ri made no mention of plans for a second summit between Kim and Trump that the USA leader highlighted at the United Nations earlier in the week.




'I was being really tough and so was he. "He wrote me attractive letters".

Trump predicted that his comment would be described as "unpresidential".

Both Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump want a second summit.

President Donald Trump makes remarks at WesBanco Arena during a Make America Great Again rally in Wheeling, West Virginia, September 29, 2018. He called on the U.S. to follow through on promises made during a summit in Singapore between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump. Trump said in a mock "news anchor" voice.

China and Russian Federation argued that the UN Security Council should reward Pyongyang for steps taken.

It added that the United States is only intent on keeping sanctions in place without holding up its end of the bargain amid a mood of detente on the Korean Peninsula.

Satellite images released in July revealed that North Korea were putting the finishing touches on a ballistic missile factory at the same time as the US-North Korea summit.

North Korea's top diplomat did not mention Trump by name during his speech, nor did he offer him any praise or credit for the summit or warming of relations.
