DPRK foreign ministry says U.S. should make positive move “before it is too late”

Statement laments lack of progress almost a year since Singapore, says ball is in U.S. court

The North Korean foreign ministry released a statement late Tuesday calling for the U.S. to take action in stalled denuclearization talks, saying Washington should consider the “correct strategic choice before it is too late.”

The statement carried by state outlet Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said “the fate of the June 12 DPRK-U.S. Joint Statement will not be promising if the U.S. fails to carry out its obligation and keeps resorting to anti-DPRK hostile policy.”
