North Korea has accused the United States of being “hell-bent on hostile acts”, in spite of a recent agreement between Pyongyang and Washington to resume nuclear talks.

It was learned that the Asian country’s delegation to the US said on Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s country was “obsessed with sanctions”.

Many probably did not see this coming following a recent meeting between Trump and Kim Jong-un in the heavily fortified demilitarised zone which divides the two Koreas.

Donald Trump, as it was reported on Sunday, became the first sitting US president to set foot in the North.

Trump and Kim, it was learned, agreed to set up teams to resume stalled negotiations on denuclearisation.

However, North Korea has accused the US of attempting to “undermine the peaceful atmosphere” on the Korean peninsula.

This news medium understands that North Korean delegation said it was responding to a US allegation that it had breached a cap on refined petroleum imports that was set in 2017.

It also said it was responding to a joint letter sent by the US, France, Germany and the UK to all UN member states that called for further sanctions on North Korea.

“What can’t be overlooked is the fact that this joint letter game was carried out… on the very same day when President Trump proposed [a] summit meeting,” the statement read.

“[It] speaks to the reality that the United States is practically more and more hell-bent [on] hostile acts against the DPRK [North Korea].”

“All UN member states will have to keep vigilance against deliberate attempts by the United States to undermine the peaceful atmosphere that has been created on the Korean Peninsula,” it said.
