N. Korean foreign ministry hits out at U.S., continues public criticism

Ministry claims the U.S. is building a pretext for the imposition of further sanctions

North Korea's foreign ministry issued a statement on Thursday criticizing the U.S. for attempting to maintain pressure on the DPRK and engaging in practices it says were tried by previous administrations without success.

The statement, published by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), is very much in the same vein as other public messages issued by the government and its representatives this week.
