North Korea Blames U.S. For Failed Summit

North Korea has said an "arbitrary and dishonest" U.S. Position had resulted in the failure to reach a deal during a second North Korea-U.S. Summit, warning the nuclear issue would never be resolved without a new approach.

A spokesman for North Korea's Foreign Ministry accused the United States of trying to shift the blame for the breakdown of the summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump in February by raising a "completely irrelevant issue", but did not elaborate.

The statement was the latest criticism of the United States since the failed summit in Vietnam, where Kim had sought sanctions relief in return for the partial dismantling of North Korea's nuclear programme.
