Tension between the United States and North Korea is growing because both sides are not willing to heed other states’ advice to enter negotiations, says an analyst.

“This is not going to end well,” because on one hand, US politicians think they can respond to Pyongyang’s potential nuclear threat properly and on the other hand, the leadership of North Korea does not want to stop its nuclear program, Einar Tangen told Press TV on Tuesday.

“It is not a situation that is very good” because "the US is not willing to give guarantees of safety and a sign of peace treaty with North Korea and guarantee the sovereignty of the current state [that is why] North Korea is not willing to give up their nuclear ambitions,” the political analyst said.
