SEOUL, July 7 (Yonhap) -- North Korea expressed regret Saturday over the attitude of U.S. negotiators during their working-level talks this week to work out details on how to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula as agreed to by their leaders in their recent summit meeting.

In a statement issued by an unnamed foreign ministry spokesman and carried by the Korean Central News Agency, the North lashed out at the United States for seeking unilateral and forced denuclearization from Pyongyang.

The statement came hours after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrapped up his two-day trip to Pyongyang aimed at hashing out measures to implement the June 12 summit agreement in Singapore, at which their leaders agreed to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
