  • John Bolton Says North Korea Hasn't Done Much To Rid Itself Of Nuclear Weapons

USA officials, according to North Korea, "are making baseless allegations against us and making desperate attempts at intensifying the global sanctions", against what they believe to be Trump's intentions to better relations between the two countries.

White House national security adviser John Bolton said Tuesday North Korea has done little to denuclearize, almost two months after the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, met with President Donald Trump.

At Trump and Kim's historic summit, the two signed a document stating that Pyongyang would work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

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.

"We expect the Russians and all countries to abide to the U.N. Security Council resolutions and enforce sanctions on North Korea", he said.

Pyongyang has also stepped up its calls for a formal end to the Korean War, which some analysts believe is meant to be the first step in the North's effort to eventually see all 28,500 US troops leave the Korean Peninsula.

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.

North Korea called out the U.S.' "shameless and impertinent behavior", according to a press release out Thursday via a foreign ministry spokesperson.

Earlier this month, August 3, the United States mission to the UN submitted proposals to the UN Security Council suggesting new sanctions against North Korea. South Korea's unification minister will lead the delegation from Seoul but North Korea, which proposed the Monday meeting first, did not confirm the makeup of its delegation.

It has urged Washington to take reciprocal steps including officially declaring an end to the war and dropping sanctions.

The summit held in Singapore marked the first time Kim Jong-un had met a western leader.
