North Korea’s mission to the United Nations said in a statement on Wednesday the U.S. is “obsessed with sanctions” and “more and more hell-bent on hostile acts.”

Pyongyang’s delegation to the U.N. made the comments despite Sunday’s meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at which they agreed to resume stalled nuclear talks and a top U.S negotiator signaling flexibility in negotiations.

The representatives made the comments in response to a U.S. accusation that North Korea breached a cap on refined petroleum imports and a letter dated June 29, sent by the United States, France, the U.K. and Germany to all UN member states calling on them to implement sanctions against Pyongyang, Reuters notes.
