North Korea's vice foreign minister said on Tuesday that the United States will face undesired consequences if it fails to present a new position in denuclearization talks by the end of the year, state media reported.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has set a year-end deadline for the United States to show more flexibility after his second summit with U.S. President Donald Trump failed to produce a deal to end Pyongyang's nuclear program in return for sanctions relief.
But Trump and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have brushed aside the deadline, calling for Kim to take action on his pledge to denuclearize after years of pursuing nuclear and rocket programs in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions.
North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui singled out Pompeo's interview last week with CBS in which he said the United States may have to "change paths" if the negotiations break down.
"Changing paths is not a privilege that only the United States has, but it could be our own choice if we make up our mind," Choe said, according to the official KCNA news agency.
"If the United States fails to reestablish its position within the timeline we gave, it will see truly undesired consequences."
She also said North Korea's determination to denuclearize remained unchanged. It would happen "when the come comes", but only if the United States changed its current calculations.
"We know the path we will take, but we're just hesitating to choose as we have set the deadline for the United States," Choe said.
The North had been seeking a deal to ease sanctions in exchange for dismantling some of its nuclear facilities, but Trump called for a "big deal" in which sanctions would be lifted if Pyongyang handed over all its nuclear weapons to the United States.
Choe's remarks continue the North's attack on Trump's point person on the nuclear negotiations, after another foreign ministry official rejected Pompeo as a counterpart, demanding a switch to someone "more careful and mature".
