North Korea threatened to end the “hard-won atmosphere of stability on the Korean Peninsula” on Thursday, in response to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s efforts to enforce economic sanctions against the regime.

The North Korean foreign ministry warned there is no guarantee stability will continue in a message carried by state-run KCNA.

The article goes on to state the following:

Pompeo and other U.S. officials don’t want any international sanctions eased until North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un takes substantial steps to roll back his nuclear weapons and ballistic missile program. Kim’s diplomats have taken offense at this position, which the Trump administration believes is necessary to prevent North Korea from backsliding as the regime has in previous talks, and lashed out with a renewal of insulting rhetoric.

“[S]ome high-level officials within the U.S. administration are making baseless allegations against us and making desperate attempts at intensifying the international sanctions and pressure,” the foreign ministry said Thursday. “The international society is struck by this shameless and impertinent behavior of the U.S., and we also closely follow the U.S. behavior with high vigilance against their intentions.”

Pompeo is leading the Trump administration’s negotiations, while urging world powers and North Korean neighbors to continue enforcing economic sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council.

“In light of how many flimsy agreements the United States has made in previous years, this president will ensure that no potential agreement will fail to adequately address the North Korean threat,” Pompeo said, days before Trump’s historic summit with Kim. “Sanctions will remain until North Korea completely and verifiably eliminates its weapons of mass destruction programs. If diplomacy does not move in the right direction — and we are hopeful that it will continue to do so — those measures will increase.”
