North Korea's foreign ministry has lashed out at the U.S. for continuing what it calls "hostile policies" despite Kim and Trump's promise to improve relations.
In a statement on Wednesday, Pyeongyang was referring to the recent U.S. decision to extend, by another year, its sanctions on North Korea.
The North also brought up U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's recent remark that over 80 percent of North Korea's economy is subject to sanctions.
The North stressed that it won't succumb to sanctions and will go ahead with a show of force if Washington tries to trample on its sovereignty.
But once again, Pyeongyang targeted its criticisms to Pompeo only not Trump.
It said improving relations and denuclearization will be difficult if the U.S. keeps hostile policymakers like Pompeo.
