North Korea has warned the United States not to mislead the public opinion over its denuclearization decision.
A spokesman for the North Korean foreign ministry said his country’s intention to denuclearize was not the result of U-S pressures and sanctions. He also accused Washington of deliberately provoking Pyongyang in a bid to undermine the atmosphere of dialog. The North Korean official said describing the North’s change in policy as a sign of weakness would not be conducive to talks and may bring the situation back to square one. The reaction by Pyongyang came after U-S President Donald Trump credited U-S sanctions and maximum pressure for a breakthrough with North Korea. Trump is expected to hold talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in the next few weeks in a historic meeting.
