The Kim Jung Un regime is claims U.S.is making "outrageous arguments" that North Korea has to denuclearize first; Greg Palkot reports.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told North Korea's foreign minister that the United States can not be trusted, Tehran's state media said, as the United States seeks a deal to rein in the North's nuclear and missile programmes.

The latest statement by the North's foreign ministry also accused U.S. officials of "going against the intention of President Trump" by "making baseless allegations against us and making desperate attempts at intensifying the global sanctions and pressure".

"They have to understand that the global community still expects them to denuclearize and so we're willing to wait if they want to wait, but we're not willing to wait for too long", said Haley, who has pushed through three United Nations sanctions packages since arriving at the world body 18 months ago. Last month, Washington warned against loosening sanctions on Pyongyang after Russian Federation and China suggested discussing such a move.

"The Americans utter lovely words when negotiating and promise a very bright future but they deliver on none of their commitments when it comes to action", Larijani said.

"Dealing with Americans is hard, and as our main goal is total disarmament of the whole Korean Peninsula, it is necessary that the Americans also abide by their commitments but they refuse to do so".

The South Korean official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of office rules, said the two Koreas will also discuss ways to push through tension-reducing agreements made during an earlier summit between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

North Korea warned Thursday that there could be no progress in its denuclearization as it accused some senior US officials of trying to strengthen global sanctions on Pyongyang. "It's just North Korea that has not taken the steps we feel are necessary to denuclearize". 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.

Donald Trump has touted the summit with Kim Jong-un in Singapore as a historic breakthrough.
