North Korea slams continued USA sanctions

DPRK Says Will Not Denuclearize Before More Trust in US

Known for its loyalty and cleverness, the Pungsan breed - a hunting dog with thick, creamy white coat, pointy ears and hazel eyes - is one of the National Treasures of North Korea.

"Without any trust in the USA, there will be no confidence in our national security and under such circumstances, there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves first".

Their first meeting in Singapore in June this year was hailed as a big step toward denuclearisation of North Korea by Trump.

Ri referred to a joint statement issued by Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump at a first ever summit between a serving U.S. president and a North Korean leader in Singapore on June 12, when Kim pledged to work toward "denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula" while Trump promised guarantees of North Korea's security.

The two will live with South Korea's First Dog, Tori, who became the first shelter dog to take up residence at the South Korean presidential compound.

A one-year-old Pungsan breed dog gifted from North Korea.

Ri expressed a "firm determination to turn the Korean Peninsula into a land of peace" but said the US -backed sanctions were a "hostile policy".

Ri was speaking at the United Nations general assembly in NY.

"If the party to this issue of denuclearization were South Korea and not the USA the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula would not have come to such a deadlock", Ri added.

On Saturday, September 29, the US President fuelled his "bromance" with Kim as he claimed that "they fell in love" after receiving "beautiful letters" from the leader of the nuclear-armed state.

The tests, some of which entered Japanese airspace, became so rampant that Donald Trump last August warned Kim that he would face "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if he continued.

Mr Trump said at the Saturday night rally in West Virginia: "He wrote me lovely letters and they're great letters".

'The missiles and rockets are no longer flying in every direction, nuclear testing has stopped, some military facilities are already being dismantled, ' Trump said.

However, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the UN Security Council on Thursday that "enforcement of Security Council sanctions must continue vigorously and without fail until we realise the fully, final, verified denuclearisation".

By contrast, Trump in his remarks to the assembly on Tuesday, thanked Kim "for his courage and for the steps he has taken".

Satellite images released in July revealed that North Korea were putting the finishing touches on a ballistic missile factory at the same time as the US-North Korea summit.

Trump took a much more optimistic view in his rally speech.

Mr Trump also pre-empted media criticism of his praise for Mr Kim.
