Pyongyang also returned the remains of some USA soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean war in a gesture meant to break down mistrust between the countries, it said.

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.

Earlier this month, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Russia, China and other countries against any violation of global sanctions on North Korea that could reduce pressure on the North to abandon its nuclear weapons.

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.

At Trump and Kim's historic summit, the two signed a document stating that Pyongyang would work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

"However, the US responded to our expectation by inciting global sanctions and pressure against the DPRK", it said in a statement carried by KCNA news agency.

"As long as the U.S. denies even the basic decorum for its dialogue partner and clings to the outdated acting script which the previous administrations have all tried and failed, one can not expect any progress in the implementation of the DPRK-U.S. joint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.

US National Security Advisor John Bolton has also weighed in on the issue, saying Sunday that nobody in Trump's administration is "starry-eyed" about the prospect "of North Korea actually denuclearising".

The North Korean statement followed comments this week by top American diplomats stressing the need for Pyongyang to take additional steps toward denuclearization.

"They have to understand that the global community still expects them to denuclearize and so we're willing to wait if they want to wait, but we're not willing to wait for too long", said Haley, who has pushed through three United Nations sanctions packages since arriving at the world body 18 months ago.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told a regular briefing on Thursday that the United States was in touch with North Korea virtually every day or other day but had no travel plans to announce for the moment.

The United States was "attempting to invent a pretext for increased sanctions against the DPRK". "We have to see denuclearization and we're not going to stop until we get it".
