Koreas prepare for summit as North Korea asks US to ease sanctions

"As long as the U.S. denies even the basic decorum for its dialogue partner and clings to the outdated acting script which the previous administrations have all tried and failed, one can not expect any progress in the implementation of the joint statement including the denuclearisation", North Korea's foreign ministry said on Thursday.

But the North Korea statement separates Mr. Trump from "high-level officials", thus allowing the the country to rail against the USA, while leaving the door open for the president to continue his dialogue with leader Kim Jong Un.

White House national security adviser John Bolton said Tuesday North Korea has done little to denuclearize, almost two months after the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, met with President Donald Trump.

The plans by the Korean leaders to meet come as Washington and Pyongyang try to follow through on nuclear disarmament vows made at a U.S. Among the agreements was holding another inter-Korean summit in the fall in Pyongyang.

North Korea's foreign ministry said on Thursday it had stopped testing missiles, conducted nuclear tests and dismantled "the nuclear test ground", yet the United States still insisted on "denuclearization first".

Bolton, in an interview on Fox News, said U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was prepared to return to North Korea for another meeting with Kim.

"However, the USA responded to our expectation by inciting worldwide sanctions and pressure".

The United States was "attempting to invent a pretext for increased sanctions against the DPRK".

The White House and State Department did not immediately return requests for comment. "However, the USA responded to our expectation by inciting worldwide sanctions and pressure against the DPRK", the statement read, using an acronym for North Korea's official name.

North Korea slammed the USA for lacking "basic decorum" in nuke talks.

"As long as the U.S. denies even the basic decorum for its dialogue partner and clings to the outdated acting script which the previous administrations have all tried and failed, one can not expect any progress in the implementation of the DPRK-U.S. joint statement including the denuclearization", the statement read. North Korea did not provide a reason for calling off the inspection, Yonhap reported.

The North apparently wants it to ensure the security of its regime.

North Korea's nuclear weapons program has caused worldwide tension for decades and the rhetoric and threats from Kim and Trump had been especially hostile before their June meeting.
