North Korea has lashed out again at the US for not lifting sanctions against the country.
The foreign ministry in Pyongyang said it had made various goodwill gestures, and yet the US was still following an “outdated acting script” and jeopardising any moves towards denuclearisation.
North Korea remains under a range of international and US sanctions over its nuclear programme and missile tests, says the BBC.
The US wants full nuclear disarmament before sanctions can be lifted.
On June 12, President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un agreed to work towards denuclearising the Korean peninsula.
But the details of that process remain vague as Pyongyang did not commit to unilaterally giving up its nuclear weapons.
Last week, a leaked UN report said the country had not stopped building weapons, which prompted Washington to call on the international community to keep enforcing sanctions.
