UNITED NATIONS -- The North Korean mission to the United Nations on Wednesday accused the U.S. of being "more and more hell-bent on hostile acts" against Pyongyang despite Washington showing a willingness to continue the dialogue between the two nations.

In a statement, the mission cited a joint letter the U.S., the U.K., France and Germany sent to all members of the U.N. on June 29, which called for the return home of all North Korean workers abroad and urged member states to impose sanctions against North Korea -- a day before U.S. President Donald Trump became the first American president to set foot in North Korea.
