The UN chief "should do what is beneficial to the current situation on Korean peninsula for peace and stability, not just by singing (the) chorus for sanctions to please (a) certain country," said a statement from the North Korean mission to the United Nations.

The mission described as "reckless" a remark from Guterres who said that North Korea "can be a normal member of the international community in this region through total denuclearization that is verifiable, irreversible."

The statement said North Korea was "astonished" to hear Guterres' remarks "at a time when the world supports and welcomes the historic DPRK-US summit and the joint statement in Singapore."

U.S. Isn't 'Starry-Eyed' on End to North Korean Nukes, Bolton Says

  U.S. Isn't 'Starry-Eyed' on End to North Korean Nukes, Bolton Says The U.S. isn’t being naïve in taking North Korea at its word on denuclearization, said White House National Security Adviser John Bolton, defending President Donald Trump’s approach to Pyongyang. “There’s no one in this administration starry-eyed about” the idea North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s regime will completely rid itself of nuclear weapons capability, Bolton said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” Still, the point may well come when Trump concludes Kim isn’t acting in good faith, he said.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo went to Pyongyang to get Kim Jong Un to give up his nuclear weapons. While President Donald Trump’s point man for nuclear talks summed up his 27 hours in the North Korean capital as “productive,” the regime called the visit “regretful.”

The statement however was short on details and a UN panel of experts reported last week that North Korea is pressing ahead with its nuclear and missile programs.

The United States, backed by Japan, is urging UN member-states to maintain pressure on North Korea to give up its military programs by fully adhering to a raft of sanctions.

Trump's administration has argued that sanctions must remain fully in place until North Korea has scrapped its nuclear and missile programs and that the dismantling is verified.

The Security Council last year adopted three rounds of tough economic sanctions on North Korea, banning most of its exports of raw commodities and severely restricting oil supplies.

The US says it's talking to North Korea 'virtually every day,' but it doesn't seem to be working .
The US and North Korea are apparently in regular communication, engaging one another by phone, email, or message on an almost-daily basis even as each side expresses frustration with the other."I can tell you we continue to have conversations virtually every day, every other day or so with the North Koreans," US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert explained to reporters Thursday, "When I say 'conversations,' that can be by phone, that can be my message, that can be by email. We continue to have conversations with the government," Nauert said.
