North Korean state media called on the US on Tuesday to “withdraw its hostile policy” towards Pyongyang.

The statement by state news agency KCNA echoes a similar warning last week. It also reflected the stalemate since a second summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in February.

“The arrogant and unilateral US policy will never work on the DPRK, which values sovereignty,” KCNA said. It added that the a four-point joint statement signed by Trump and Kim on June 12 last year pledging to work towards a new relationship “is in danger of being a blank sheet of paper because the US is turning a blind eye to its implementation.”

“Now is the time for the US to withdraw its hostile policy” concerning North Korea, the statement reads.
