US can't be trusted, Iran's Rouhani tells North Korea

US can't be trusted, Iran's Rouhani tells North Korea

"As long as the USA denies even the basic decorum for its dialogue partner and clings to the outdated acting script which the previous administrations have all tried and failed, one can not expect any progress in the implementation of the joint statement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

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

National security adviser John Bolton earlier this week said North Korea had not begun the progress, while United States envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, said Washington was "not willing to wait for too long" for the North.

"Dealing with Americans is hard, and as our main goal is total disarmament of the whole Korean Peninsula, it is necessary that the Americans also abide by their commitments but they refuse to do so".

"The U.S. should, even at this belated time, respond to our honest efforts in a corresponding manner", the ministry said.

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

The North Korean government said in a statement through its mission to the United Nations that it has halted nuclear missile tests, dismantled a nuclear test site and begun to return the remains of Americans killed in the Korean War, but lamented continued criticism from US officials. The United States cancelled a joint war exercise with South Korea that was due to take place this month while dismissing calls to ease sanctions until the North delivers on its commitments to fully denuclearize. It also wasn't clear when another leaders' summit might happen.

However, the State Department's latest comments on communication between the U.S. and North Korea come amid rising concerns the denuclearization process has slowed to a snail's pace since the North Korea-U.S. summit in June. The Korean Peninsula is still technically in a state of war because the fighting ended with a cease-fire, not a peace treaty.

Asked about the possibility of additional meetings, Bolton said Trump in a recent letter to Kim proposed sending Pompeo back to North Korea, and that Trump was ready to meet with Kim any time.

Mr. Kim and Mr. Moon met in April at a highly publicized summit that saw the leaders hold hands and walk together across the border, and then again in a more informal summit in May, just weeks before Mr. Kim met Mr. Trump in Singapore.
