China slams Trump's 'irresponsible and absurd logic' on North Korea

China slams Trump's 'irresponsible and absurd logic' on North Korea

US Secretary of Defense James Mattis recently hinted at the possibility of restarting the US-South Korea joint military drills, which were halted after the Singapore summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in June.

North Korean state media has also been critical of the United States, complaining that Washington was failing to live up to promises to revamp the two countries' relations.

U.S. President Donald Trump earlier called off a scheduled North Korea visit by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, citing what he called a lack of progress in the denuclearization process.

The report said that US officials are concerned that North Korea may attempt to strike a separate deal with South Korea, in a bid to drive a wedge between the South and the U.S.

The US president said he was not considering resuming joint military exercises on the Korean Peninsula that Pyongyang considers "provocative".

North Korea's media accused the U.S. of plotting "hostile military acts" against the country Friday, while criticizing Washington's insistence that Pyongyang take "denuclearization steps first" without making minimal efforts to build good faith between the two nations.

He has also accused China of "providing North Korea with considerable aid, including money, fuel, fertiliser and various other commodities".

A particular sticking point has been Pyongyang's desire for a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War, but the sticking to its view that the North must first denuclearize.

He said he needed to take a tough stance with Beijing on trade "because it was really not fair to our country", criticising his predecessors who "closed their eyes" to the issue.

USA news site Vox meanwhile reported that Trump at June s summit pledged to sign a declaration ending the Korean War, and now the two countries remain deadlocked over who will follow through on their commitment first.

They met a second time in the truce village as they scrambled to salvage a summit between Kim and USA president Donald Trump in Singapore which eventually went ahead.
