And here's the full English-language text of North Korea's latest statement about stalled negotiations with Washington, just after the U.S.'s lead negotiator arrived in South Korea.
KCNA: "If the U.S. gives up the ambition for denuclearization by dint of high-handed practices and pressure and unilateral 'denuclearization of north Korea', the way-out will be shown."
KCNA: "Voices of concern are heard from the U.S. to the effect that finding a way for the denuclearization, given the present stalemate of the DPRK-U.S. negotiations, would be like a groping for a way in the middle of desert. But there is a way."
KCNA: "Or it is trying to find a way of derailing the improvement of relations and the denuclearization process by inventing absurd 'evidence' called 'strange signs' in nuclear and missile bases of the DPRK."
KCNA: "It is persisting in the maintenance of sanctions on the DPRK and pressure over the issue of 'human rights'. It seems it is thinking of rattling the DPRK, a country of high sense of dignity, and disrupting the negotiations."
KCNA: "What we asked the U.S. to take as a corresponding measure was not a thing that ishard to put into practice for the U.S. The end of the hostile policy toward the DPRK and the lift of unwarranted sanctions measuresthe U.S. can do without a knuckle of finger."
KCNA: "We have shown the U.S. which has thousands of nuclear weapons enough to destroy the earth several times, the country which has not changed even a single point-mark in its nuclear attack map targeting the DPRK, our will to denuclearization."
KCNA: "In the light of this fact, it would be proper to say that the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula means 'completely removing the nuclear threats of the U.S. to the DPRK', before it means the elimination of its nuclear deterrence."

KCNA: "It was the U.S. which forced the DPRK to possess the nuclear weapons as a war deterrent as the former posed steady threats to the latter with nuclear weapons through the deployment of nuclear strategic assets and nuclear war exercises."
KCNA: "Therefore, it is a self-evident truth that the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula is a joint work which can never come true unless the DPRK and the U.S. make joint efforts."
KCNA: "When we refer to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, it, therefore, means removing all elements of nuclear threats from the areas of both the north and the south of Korea and also from surrounding areas from where the Korean peninsula is targeted."
KCNA: "When we refer to the Korean peninsula, they include both the area of the DPRK and the area of south Korea where aggression troops including the nuclear weapons of the U.S. are deployed."
KCNA: "The U.S. must have a clear understanding of the phrase, denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, and study geology, in particular, before it is too late."
KCNA: "By replacing the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula with 'the denuclearization of north Korea', the U.S. tries to cause the optical illusion of the people in their view of the DPRK-U.S. relations, and stop them from making a correct judgment."
KCNA: "The U.S. regards the big concept of the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula as the same as the partial concept of the 'denuclearization of north Korea'. The June 12 DPRK-U.S. joint statementdoes not contain any phrase called 'denuclearization of north Korea'."
KCNA: "In the course of analyzing in detail the hardly understandable words and acts the U.S. madeand its improper behaviorsduring negotiations, we could see what the knotty problem is. It was the U.S. misguided understanding of the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula."
KCNA: "A commentary 'It would be better to search for a new way rather than facing a barrier in the old way' was made public by Jong Hyon on Thursday."
