That’s after the U.S. State Department agreed to another round of talks in Sweden, in two weeks, for more dialogue with Pyongyang.

The website of North Korea’s state news agency cited a foreign ministry spokesperson as saying, quote: "...We have no intention of holding such sickening negotiations like those that occurred this time (in Sweden) before the U.S. takes a substantial step in undertaking a complete and irreversible withdrawal of the hostile policy toward the DPRK..." North Korea reiterated the year-end deadline that leader Kim Jong Un set for the United States to show more flexibility in the talks, which fell apart in February during his summit with President Donald Trump.

Then in June, Trump and Kim met at the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas and agreed to restart working-level talks.

Even though the U.S. said it brought creative ideas to the table… the North Korean foreign ministry said Washington had made no preparations for the talks in Sweden, and sought only to serve its own political aims.
