North Korea's state media have slammed the "deceptive" US approach toward the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Referring to the new round of sanctions against Iran, North Korea’s state media on Sunday criticised US pressure on Iran while presenting a negotiation proposal.

Washington boycotted several large companies active in the Iranian petrochemical industry last week just days after offering an unconditional negotiation proposal at the time of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s trip to Tehran.

The North Korean news agency described this approach as “deceptive”, saying that Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman also described Washington’s proposal for talks “unrealistic”.

South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency also pointed to the North Korean news agency’s stance against US anti-Iran sanctions, saying that it shows Pyongyang’s displeasure over the deadlock in negotiations with Washington.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has twice met with US President Donald Trump, but Washington has so far refused to lift sanctions against North Korea, tying it to the full dismantling of Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons. For the same reason, negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington have failed so far.
