North Korea suggested that Trump made this decision based on Pyongyang's unwillingness to unilaterally denuclearize, as the DPRK has continuously stressed that it was not interested in unilateral demands from the USA on denuclearization and would negotiate with Trump only if he is seeking to improve bilateral relations.

On May 26, Kim had an unannounced meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who is acting as a go-between for the high-stakes summit between the North and the US since the recent breakthrough in détente between Seoul and Pyongyang, to get the summit with Trump back on track. Asked if a deal was taking shape, Trump said: "I think it will be very positive".

His visit comes amid a flurry of diplomatic activity to organise next month's summit, with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also meeting Kim's right-hand man Kim Yong Chol in NY late Wednesday.

"In bilateral talks, North Korea will yield to the U.S.in many areas".




Trump had been scheduled to meet Kim in Singapore on June 12, but the meeting was thrown into doubt after the United States leader said he was cancelling it.

But Kim, in a meeting with Russia's foreign minister on Thursday, complained about "U.S. hegemonism", a comment that may complicate the discussions in NY.

Ship-to-ship transfers between North Korean ships and those of other United Nations member states are prohibited by a Security Council resolution adopted last September in response to North Korea's nuclear weapon and ballistic missile testing. South Korean media speculated that Pompeo could make a third trip to Pyongyang and that Kim Yong Chol was carrying a personal letter from Kim Jong Un and might push to travel to Washington to meet with Trump.

Concerned about the impact that the continued uncertainty over the summit coupled with the North's destruction of its main nuclear test facility might have on the public, the Central Committee of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea has issued directives regarding the North-South meeting, the North-U.S. summit, and Punggye-ri, said a source from North Hamgyong province who declined to be named. Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump will host Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan on June 7 to coordinate their thinking ahead of the summit.
