KCNA: "The U.S. proposal for consulting the 'human rights issue' of the DPRK was refused by several member states of the UNSC. Many media in Asian, African and Western countries broadly report that the U.S.was put to shame under the eyes of the world."
KCNA: "The U.S. has discussed the DPRK's 'human rights issue' at the UN Security Council early in December every year since 2014 by abusing its position, but its attempt went amiss this year."
KCNA: "Looking back with deep emotion upon the sacred life of Kim Jong Il who performed very precious revolutionary feats for the country and the people, the Supreme Leader said that our Party has adhered to the idea and line of Kim Jong Il."
KCNA: "The Supreme Leader paid homage to the statues. Then he entered the hall where Chairman Kim Jong Il lies in state. He paid highest tribute to Kim Jong Il who devoted his all tothe happiness of the people until the last moments of his revolutionary career."
KCNA: "Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the [DPRK] and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, visited the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun on the occasion of the greatest national memorial day."
KCNA: "The U.S. should realize before it is too late that 'maximum pressure' would not work against us and take a sincere approach to implementing the Singapore DPRK-U.S. Joint Statement."
KCNA: "Since we know too well that the deep-rooted hostility between the DPRK and the U.S. cannot be redressed overnight, we have been proposingrelations be improved on a step-by-step approach of resolving what is feasible one by one, by giving priority to confidence building."
KCNA: "I cannot help but throw doubt on the ulterior motive of the State Department."
KCNA: "President Trump avails himself of every possible occasion to state his willingness to improve DPRK-U.S. relationsthe State Department is instead bent on bringing the DPRK-U.S. relations back to the status of last year which was marked by exchanges of fire."
KCNA: "U.S. is resorting to anti-DPRK human rights plot in such a way that it carries decapture provocation by adding high-ranking government officials ofDPRK, a sovereign state, to its unilateral sanctions list, while taking issue with the non-existent 'human rights issue'."
KCNA: "The U.S. high-ranking politicians including the secretary of state have almost every day slandered the DPRK out of sheer malice, and the State Department and the Treasury Department have taken anti-DPRK sanctions measuresby fabricating pretexts of all hues."
North Korea condemned US administration for stepping up sanctions and, warning of a return to "exchanges of fire" and that disarming Pyongyang could be blocked forever

KCNA: "Of late, Australia decided to dispatch a sea-patrol plane tothe Korean Peninsula under the pretext of keeping a close on the DPRK's violation of 'sanctions resolution.' The minister of Defensesaid that Australia would maintain the pressure upon north Korea."
