North Korea disappointed in the US and questioned nuclear disarmament
The DPRK criticized the talks on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
The statement said that Washington is exerting pressure on Pyongyang, imposing unilateral "predatory" demands on it, and thus "betrays the spirit of the Singapore summit" between North Korean leader and US president Donald Trump.
It is noted that the results of the talks turned out to be "extremely disturbing".
"We expected the representative of Washington to propose a constructive idea, we thought that we would also receive something in return. However, as a result of the high-level talks, confidence between the DPRK and the US was jeopardized, and our determination to denuclearize, which was firm and persistent before, can shake, "the statement said. Pyongyang insists on a step-by-step approach and simultaneous steps of the parties.
At the same time, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described the negotiations as successful. He said that he made progress "on almost all the main points" of the talks, including the terms and stages of denuclearization, and also agreed on new negotiations on the transfer of the remains of American citizens killed in the Korean War in 1950-1953.
North Korea is waiting for Washington's "courageous step", which should declare its readiness to agree to a peace treaty with Pyongyang.
The DPRK believes that if the United States does not want to replace the armistice agreement that ended the Korean War in a permanent peace that ensures the survival of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's regime, Pyongyang will most likely not continue denuclearization negotiations.
In addition, the DPRK is exerting pressure on the administration of US President Donald Trump, believing that Kim Jong-no has already done enough in the framework of the "denuclearization program." At the same time, Trump believes that too little has been done, and privately expressed disappointment at the tangible lack of progress in the negotiations.
Meanwhile, a number of observers in the United States are skeptical about the results of the historic summit in Singapore. Experts draw attention to the fact that neither the terms of denuclearization nor the ways to control its progress by the United States and the international community have been determined so far. Without these details, Kim Jong-un's decision to abandon nuclear weapons looks like an empty promise.
Russia together with other countries will try to convince the American colleagues of the need to relax the restrictions.
"In our opinion, our Korean friends should be encouraged by the easing of sanctions, their mitigation and cancellation," said the Russian ambassador in Pyongyang, Alexander Matsegor.
He added that, according to Washington, the easing of sanctions will "cool down" the DPRK's desire for denuclearization. But Russia is convinced that easing the restrictions will help the settlement of the situation on the Korean peninsula.
Matsegor believes that sanctions against the DPRK seriously affect the economy of the republic.
