North Korea’s UN Mission is accusing the Trump administration of deliberately trying to undermine peace efforts by pressuring all countries to implement UN sanctions.

The mission said Wednesday that while the US is talking about dialogue it is "more and more hell-bent" on hostile acts.

It cited a joint letter from the US, Britain, France and Germany on June 29 to UN member states calling for all North Korean workers abroad to be sent home _ the same day President Donald Trump proposed a summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The mission said all countries "will have to keep vigilance against deliberate attempts by the United States to undermine the peaceful atmosphere that has been created on the Korean peninsula in no easy way." (AP)
