North Korea will not disarm unilaterally, without trust in U.S.: Ri Yong Ho

Trust building must come before anything else, DPRK foreign minister tells UNGA

North Korea will in no way unilaterally disarm and that the U.S. must first and foremost build trust with North Korea, the country's foreign minister Ri Yong Ho told the UN General Assembly (UNGA) on Saturday.

Ri also said that North Korea was "unwavering" in its commitment to implementing the joint declaration signed in Singapore by U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
