North Korea threatens US over ‘hostile’ sanctions after failed denuclearisation talks

NORTH KOREA has hit back at the recent extensions to US sanctions calling them a ‘hostile act’.

The increase has been deemed an outright challenge to the summit between the two countries, according to Pyongyang’s foreign ministry. The White House last week extended six executive orders containing sanctions imposed over North Korea’s nuclear and missile programmes by one year. A foreign ministry spokesman denounced US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s remarks on Sunday that more than 80 percent of the North Korean economy has been affected by sanctions.
