“It is universally known that the situation on the Korean peninsula has not easily emerged from the whirlwind of tension aggravated by the hostile policy of the United States towards Pyongyang,” the Asian country’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement published on English.
In the text, the North Korean Foreign Ministry warned that before requesting dialogue, the US should put an end to military threats and withdraw its hostile policy.

On the other hand, according to the statement, the joint military exercises carried out by the United States in the Asian peninsula constitute a threat to national security and affect regional stability.
“The United States would do well to stop its military threat to our country and withdraw its hostile policy first and foremost instead of advertising the so-called diplomatic solution through dialogue,” he added.
Washington has requested an urgent meeting of the Security Council of the United Nations Organization for this Thursday to analyze the recent launch of an intermediate-range missile by North Korea.
The White House has been pushing for tougher sanctions against Pyongyang over recent missile launches.
United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres has condemned North Korea’s recent weapons test as a violation of Security Council resolutions prohibiting it from launching ballistic missiles.
