North Korea has called on the United States to reciprocate its ‘goodwill measures’ by easing sanctions and stopping demands that the North denuclearise first, which they branded insulting.

Pyongyang said in a statement that ‘expecting any result, while insulting the dialogue partner amounts to waiting to see a boiled egg hatch out.’

The statement accused U.S. diplomats of ‘going against the intention of President Trump’ by refusing to lift actions until there is proof of denuclearisation in the hermit state.

In the most recent sign of growing frustration between Washington and Pyongyang, North Korea criticised senior American officials for insisting that North Korea give up its nuclear weapons first before easing sanctions.

North Korea’s foreign ministry said Pyongyang had stopped nuclear and missile tests, dismantled a nuclear test ground and returned the remains of some U.S. soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War.

Yet, it said, Washington was still insisting on ‘denuclearization first’ and had ‘responded to our expectation by inciting international sanctions and pressure’ it said.

‘As long as the U.S. denies even the basic decorum for its dialogue partner and clings to the outdated acting script which the previous administrations have all tried and failed, one cannot expect any progress in the implementation of the DPRK-U.S. joint statement including the denuclearization,’ the ministry said.

The statement on the KCNA state news agency said North Korea, which calls itself the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, was still willing to implement a broad agreement made at a landmark June 12 summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
