The United States reiterated today that it is too early to speak of an official declaration about the end of the Korean War (1950-53), despite the rapprochement between Washington, Seoul and Pyongyang.
According to the US ambassador to South Korea, Harry Harris, Seoul and the United States share the common goal of verified denuclearization and to achieve it depends on the hard work of diplomacy.
This position of the US diplomat supports Washington's position that insists on demanding concrete steps by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) towards denuclearization, before serious talks take place on the signing of a permanent peace treaty.
Recently, the DPRK criticized Washington's constant call to exert international pressure on Pyongyang and emphasized that the country has taken steps to enforce the agreements signed between US President Donald Trump and leader Kim Jong-un on June 12.
The North Korean foreign ministry mentioned the suspension of nuclear tests and launches of ballistic missiles, as well as the elimination of the nuclear test center, as effective measures that seek to create mutual trust.
As long as the United States follows that expired script, it will not be possible to see progress on the agreed issues, emphasized the Foreign Affairs Ministry of the DPRK.
