North Korea assails US, South Korea and UN nuclear agency

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — North Korea is accusing the United States of "political and military provocations" and South Korea of "double-dealing behavior."

North Korea's U.N. Ambassador Kim Song made the accusations in a speech Monday to a General Assembly meeting on the International Atomic Energy Agency, which Kim also criticized.

Kim said relations between the U.S. and North Korea "have made little progress" since the June 2018 summit between their leaders, "and the situation of the Korean peninsula has not extricated itself from the vicious cycle of aggravated tension."

Nuclear diplomacy remains largely in deadlock since a U.S.-North Korea summit failed in February.
