North Korea on Thursday hit out at U.S. officials for failing to adhere to the spirit of the agreement reached by the leaders of the two countries at the historic Singapore summit in June.

North Korea's foreign ministry accused the U.S. of not reciprocating its various goodwill gestures, including Pyongyang’s recent move to return American war dead, and instead attempting to intensify international pressure on the Asian state, notes writes the BBC.

The criticism, in a statement released in English, blamed "some high-level officials within the U.S. administration" for defying President Donald Trump’s besides holding previous U.S. administrations guilty for strained ties between the countries, notes CNN.
