North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said peace and security on the Korean peninsula depend entirely on the future U.S. attitude, North Korean state media KCNA said on Friday. Kim made the remarks during his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"The situation on the Korean peninsula and the region is now at a standstill and has reached a critical point where it may return to its original state as the U.S. took a unilateral attitude in bad faith at the recent second North Korea-U.S. summit talks," KCNA reported Kim saying. Kim's remarks were seen as keeping pressure on the United States to be more flexible in accepting Pyongyang's demands to ease sanctions, compared to the U.S. stance during his unsuccessful second summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in Hanoi in February.
