North Korea Slams "Preposterous" US Report On Pervasive Sexual Violence

North Korea Slams'Preposterous US Report On Pervasive Sexual Violence

The comments come ahead of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's meeting with his North Korean counterpart, Kim Yong Chol, in NY this week.

Announcing the meeting on Fox News Sunday, Pompeo said it would be "a good opportunity to continue the denuclearization discussions" underway since US President Donald Trump's historic summit in June with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Last month, the North's state media carried a near 1,700 words long commentary accusing the U.S. of playing a "double game", implicitly criticising Trump for his comments aimed at barring Seoul from lifting sanctions against Pyongyang.

In Washington last week, South Korea's defense minister said Washington and Seoul would make a decision by December on major joint military exercises for 2019.

That said, Mr. Pompeo on Sunday provided a laundry list of US achievements in relations with North Korea since the Singapore summit, saying such achievements were part of Washington's inevitable march toward denuclearization.

North Korea has warned it could revive a state policy aimed at strengthening its nuclear arsenal if the United States does not lift economic sanctions against the country. "But North Korea seems to be weighing the time and place while looking into the agenda and possible agreement with Russia", Woo said.

Netanyahu calls start of new Iran sanctions a ‘historic day’
However, the USA has granted eight temporary waivers to countries that will let them wind down their imports over time. The goal: "to force the iranian regime to change its behavior".

The ministry described the lifting of US-led sanctions as corresponding action to the North's "proactive and goodwill measures", apparently referring to its unilateral suspension of nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile tests and closure of a nuclear testing ground.

The North Korean Foreign Ministry statement, released under the name of the director of the ministry's Institute for American Studies, said the "improvement of relations and sanctions is incompatible". "The US thinks that its oft-repeated "sanctions and pressure" lead to 'denuclearisation.' We can not help laughing at such a foolish idea".

The U.S. top diplomat said that the meeting between President Trump and Chairman Kim in June this year has set them on the path that they're on today. There have been no nuclear test.

"We're continuing to negotiate with the North Koreans to achieve ... the full denuclearization verified by the United States of the Korean peninsula", he added.

Mr. Pompeo on Sunday issued a thinly veiled warning to Russian Federation and China that they will suffer the consequences if they continue to purchase Iranian oil after US economic sanctions on such exports snapback this week. -South Korea exercises in the past. The exact date and place of the meeting of the leaders of the United Kingdom and Russian President Vladimir Putin is not reported.
