Even after a historic announcement that U.S. President Donald Trump will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for the first time as a sitting president, Pyongyang continued Saturday to denounce the U.S. for its sanctions and vowed never to bow to the pressure.

In an opinion piece attributed to an individual writer, North Korea's state newspaper Rodong Sinmun said Saturday that the regime won't bow to "military power, sanctions or blockade."

"We won't let Americans determine good and evil according to their own ruler and trample upon justice and truth," it argued.

It denounced the latest sanctions and secondary boycott by the U.S. and said they violated international law and infringed on sovereignty. It also called those disciplinary actions "very dangerous" and said they "might provoke a war."

Neither the paper nor other North Korean media mentioned that South Korean envoys extended an invitation from Kim Jong-un to President Trump Thursday (local time) in Washington to meet to discuss the regime's nuclear weapons programs and that Trump accepted it.

In an editorial, the paper called on the regime's diplomats to play an important role to "protect the authority of the Supreme Leader and the party in any circumstances at a time when the confrontation with enemy forces is in full swing." (Yonhap)
