  • More demolition seen at North Korea rocket launching station

The North noted that they returned remains of USA soldiers who fought in the Korean War to the US last week.

He continued to note that the USA has no current plans to relax sanctions on North Korea until there is evidence the country is taking steps to denuclearize, saying the Trump administration would continue its campaign of "maximum pressure".

Trump has hailed North Korea's moves since his historic summit with leader Kim Jong Un during a summit in Singapore in June, where the USA agreed to provide unspecified security guarantees in exchange for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Russian Federation and China have suggested the U.N. Security Council could discuss loosening sanctions on Pyongyang after the June 12 Singapore meeting between Trump and Kim.

Yet Washington was still insisting on "denuclearization first" and had "responded to our expectation by inciting global sanctions and pressure" it said.

The country claimed that the U.S.is denying it "basic decorum" and is clinging "to the outdated acting script which the previous administrations have all tried and failed", warning that they "cannot expect any progress in the implementation" of the joint agreement between the two countries reached earlier this year.

The ministry added that expecting "any result" to negotiations in this context was "indeed a foolish act that amounts to waiting to see a boiled egg hatch out".

The North Korean statement followed comments this week by top American diplomats stressing the need for Pyongyang to take additional steps toward denuclearisation.

The United States was "attempting to invent a pretext for increased sanctions against the DPRK".

But the North Korea statement separates Mr. Trump from "high-level officials", thus allowing the the country to rail against the US, while leaving the door open for the president to continue his dialogue with leader Kim Jong Un.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told a regular briefing on Thursday that the United States was in touch with North Korea virtually every day or other day but had no travel plans to announce for the moment.

On Wednesday, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the United States was "not willing to wait for too long" for North Korea to take steps toward denuclearising.

North Korea has removed some of the remaining structures at Sohae Satellite Launching Station, according to a 38 North analysis of satellite photos on Tuesday.

Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, also said this week that North Korea has not taken the steps necessary to denuclearise.
