The North's statement came just hours after Pompeo wrapped up two-days of talks with senior officials which he described as "productive" and "conducted in good faith".
The display of small talk between North Korean and US officials, a rarity given the infrequent contacts between the longtime adversaries, revealed both the tension at the heart of the nuclear negotiations and the increasing familiarity of the two men who have become diplomatic counterparts during Pompeo's three visits to Pyongyang and Kim's visit to New York City in May.
In practical terms, Pompeo said only that officials from both sides would meet on July 12 as a working group to discuss the repatriation of the remains of some U.S. soldiers killed during the 1950-1953 Korean War.
As the World Economic Forum holds an annual meeting of world leaders in Davos in January, North Korea may be considering timing the denuclearization talks with the Davos forum, Kyodo said.
Despite Pompeo's positive depiction of the events, signs had emerged that things weren't going as well as hoped.
Trump derisively mocked Kim last fall as "Little Rocket Man" on Twitter and in speeches when tensions between the two countries were high.
The North's statement, coming so soon after Pompeo's trip, was sure to fuel growing skepticism in the USA over how serious Kim is about giving up his nuclear arsenal.
Nauert said the July 12 meeting, which Pompeo said would take place at the intra-Korean border, would be at working level and involve U.S. Defense Department officials. He said "there is much work for us to do together and I'm honored to be with you here today".
But talks were expected to continue at a large guest villa in an official compound in Pyongyang, a short distance from the imposing mausoleum where North Korea's former helmsmen, Kim's grandfather and father, Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il lie in state.
Skepticism has grown over how and whether North Korea will dismantle its nuclear weapons program amid US media reports that the country has continued to develop nuclear facilities.
"We confirmed that security assurances will be provided to North Korea as agreed in the summit".
Kim, a regime hard-liner who is careful not to act outside North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's instructions, said he needed to "clarify" aspects of his almost three-hour negotiations Friday with Pompeo, a desire the top us diplomat immediately echoed.
A letter from Kim to Trump was also delivered to Pompeo through Kim Yong-chol, a top North Korean party official.
It would be worse for Trump himself.
However, in another twist of approach towards Kim - who Trump once called "Little Rocket Man" - the U.S. administration renewed its sanctions on North Korea for another year.
"The U.S. attitude and positions at the high-level talks on Friday and Saturday were extremely regrettable", the Ministry said in a statement, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency. Many were surprised when Trump agreed at the summit in Singapore to end joint military exercises with South Korea.
In criticizing the talks with Pompeo, however, it carefully avoided attacking Trump personally, saying "we wholly maintain our trust toward President Trump", but stressed that Washington must not allow "headwinds" against the "wills of the leaders".
Heather Nauert, a spokesperson for the state department, tweeted a number of photos during the talks, including one of a beaming Mr Pompeo pictured after the final meeting.
The U.S.is "fatally mistaken" if it thinks North Korea can be pressured into accepting its demands, the statement continued, adding that a breakdown in the North Korean-U.S. relationship would mean "there is no guarantee that this will not result in yet another tragedy".
