North Korea, on Monday, accused the United States of urging the international community to continue to apply diplomatic and economic pressure against it.
North Korea, the official KCNA agency, and its "information", quoted a Pyongyang administration official, who was not named, as saying that "his country will continue its path after negotiations with the United States reach a dead end."
He accused the Korean official, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, of encouraging during the meeting of the Group of Seven major industrialized countries (G7), last week, "to continue to apply diplomatic and economic pressure against his country."
He explained that "the attempted dialogue proposed by the United States in order to buy time and create an environment conducive to the interests of its president, was severely affected."
He continued, "The United States will not change its hostile policy toward North Korea, no matter how great and strong the friendship between the leaders of the two countries."
North Korea is subject to a series of economic, commercial and military sanctions, according to a package of resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council since 2006, due to its ballistic and nuclear missile programs. 25 n ended
