North Korea's foreign minister Ri Yong Ho said on Saturday that North Korea is quite firm in its determination to implement the agreement it reached with the United States in June but however is increasingly concerned by US attitudes.
"The DPRK stands firm in its determination and commitment for implementing the DPRK-US Joint Statement in a responsible and good-faith manner," said Ri Yong Ho, referring to his country by its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
"What is alarming, however, is the insistent moves manifested within the US to go back to the old, far from its leader's intention," he added.
