"However, the US responded to our expectation by inciting global sanctions and pressure".
USA officials, according to North Korea, "are making baseless allegations against us and making desperate attempts at intensifying the worldwide sanctions", against what they believe to be Trump's intentions to better relations between the two countries.
The rival Koreas plan to hold high-level talks on Monday to prepare for a third summit between their leaders, as Pyongyang called on the United States to reciprocate its "goodwill measures" by easing sanctions and stopping demands that the North denuclearize first.
Earlier this month, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Russia, China and other countries against any violation of global sanctions on North Korea that could reduce pressure on the North to abandon its nuclear weapons.
But the North Korea statement separates Mr. Trump from "high-level officials", thus allowing the the country to rail against the US, while leaving the door open for the president to continue his dialogue with leader Kim Jong Un.

Reporting on preliminary results from a 10-month investigation, the Korea Customs Service said Friday it is seeking prosecutions of three local companies and their executives for smuggling or forging documents to say North Korean mineral resources came from Russian Federation. American officials have been putting pressure on North Korea to follow its claimed suspension of nuclear tests and destruction of its nuclear test site with a handover of weapons.
Waving mini white and blue "unification" flags - a pale blue silhouette of the Korean peninsula - the head of the North Korean group, Ju Yong-gil, said the football game will "create momentum for reunification throughout all classes".
But the details of that process remain vague - North Korea did not commit to unilaterally give up its nuclear weapons and the United Nations says its nuclear programme is continuing.
The report said: "North Korea has not stopped its nuclear and missile programs and continued to defy Security Council resolutions". "It's just North Korea that has not taken the steps we feel are necessary to denuclearize".
Officials said they were also looking into whether any of the 14 vessels that transported North Korean coal violated sanctions banning such shipments.
