A statement from the North Korean government, broadcast via the Korea Central News Agency, accused United States figures of spouting "falsehoods" about the North Korean nuclear issue.

The statement cited USA officials who are "going against President Trump" and his intent to advance relations between the two nations, saying that the president has expressed "gratitude to our goodwill measures" implemented as part of the agreement.

The United States was "attempting to invent a pretext for increased sanctions against the DPRK by mobilising all their servile mouthpieces and intelligence institutions to fabricate all kinds of falsehoods".

North Korea accused the United States on Thursday of pushing for worldwide sanctions despite goodwill moves by Pyongyang and said progress on denuclearization promises could not be expected if Washington continues to follow an "outdated acting script".

North Korea's foreign ministry said Pyongyang had stopped nuclear and missile tests, dismantled a nuclear test ground and returned the remains of some USA soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War.

"We hoped that these goodwill measures would contribute to breaking down the high barrier of mistrust" between Pyongyang and Washington, the North's Foreign Ministry spokesperson said.

At a landmark summit in June, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump pledged to work to end Pyongyang's nuclear weapons programs, but the two countries have been struggling to reach a detailed accord to meet that goal.

"As long as the US denies even the basic decorum for its dialogue partner. one cannot expect any progress in the implementation of the DPRK-US joint statement including the denuclearization", said Pyongyang's foreign ministry, using the initials of the country's official name, warning regional security could suffer.

But the North Korea statement separates Mr. Trump from "high-level officials", thus allowing the the country to rail against the US, while leaving the door open for the president to continue his dialogue with leader Kim Jong Un.

In the most recent sign of growing frustration between Washington and Pyongyang, North Korea criticised senior American officials for insisting that North Korea give up its nuclear weapons first before easing sanctions.

On Wednesday, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said that the United States was "not willing to wait for too long" for North Korea to take steps towards denuclearising.

"The U.S. should, even at this belated time, respond to our honest efforts in a corresponding manner", North Korea added in its statement.

The UN Security Council first imposed sanctions on North Korea after its first nuclear test in 2006.
