North Korea may reconsider trust-building steps with U.S., foreign ministry warns
DPRK MFA hints at end to ICBM, nuclear test moratorium in response to UNSC meeting

North Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) on Thursday warned that the country may reconsider recent measures taken to build trust with the United States, criticizing several EU countries for their joint condemnation this week of its most recent missile test.

In a statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), a foreign ministry spokesperson also accused the European countries of conducting a "stern provocation" against the DPRK by only condemning North Korea despite the U.S.'s recent test of a Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
