  • North Korea urges US to relent on peace treaty stance

The government came under criticism that it was taking too long to investigate.

The Security Council first imposed sanctions on North Korea after its first nuclear test in 2006.

For his part, Pompeo said last week North Korea was "closer" to denuclearization, but that "the ultimate timeline for denuclearization will be set by Chairman Kim, at least in part".

The coal originated from the North Korean ports of Wonsan, Chongjin, Daean and Songlim.

The delegation, including 84 young footballers, will travel by bus to Pyongyang for their 10-day visit, marking the first overland trip by South Korean civilians to the North's capital in almost seven years.

But it has emerged that the South Korean government was tipped off by the U.S. Embassy here.

As for the reason the investigation was prolonged, the agency cited key suspects' denial of charges, a massive amount of documents and items seized in the probe and difficulties in identifying the origin of the coal.

As the South Korean delegation travelled north, 64 North Korean workers arrived in Seoul for a football match slated for Saturday.

Importing North Korean coal constitutes a violation of the tax law for illegal imports.

Bolton, who spoke on Tuesday, said Trump, in a letter to Kim, proposed sending Pompeo back to North Korea, and that Trump was ready to meet with Kim any time.

The North Korean statement followed comments this week by top American diplomats stressing the need for Pyongyang to take additional steps toward denuclearization and contentious remarks last week by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean Foreign Minster Ri Yong Ho on the sidelines of a regional summit in Singapore.

The rival Koreas will meet Monday for high-level talks meant to prepare for a summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, South Korea said Thursday, the third such meetings between the leaders in recent months. "However, the USA responded to our expectation by inciting global sanctions and pressure against the DPRK", the statement read, using an acronym for North Korea's official name.

North Korea has condemned the U.S. for placing fresh sanctions on it and called on the country to respond to its efforts to improve bilateral ties.

Two South Korean under-15 teams, FC Gangwon and Yeoncheon Miracle, will compete in the Ari Sports Cup, a youth football tournament that runs from August 13 to 18 and also includes China, Russia, Uzbekistan, and Belarus.
