Statement from North Korea accused Washington of twisting agreement and driving post-summit talks into an impasse
North Korea has said it will never unilaterally give up its nuclear weapons unless the US first removes what Pyongyang called a nuclear threat. The surprisingly blunt statement jars with Seoul’s rosier presentation of the North Korean position and could rattle the fragile trilateral diplomacy to defuse a nuclear crisis that last year had many fearing war.
The latest from North Korea comes as the US and North Korea struggle over the sequencing of the denuclearization that Washington wants and the removal of international sanctions desired by Pyongyang.
