  • Trump: Kim Will Get 'Rocket Man' CD Later, Plus Surprise 'Little Gift'

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has sought "a new future" in relations with the United States, saying he believes efforts to improve ties will succeed, according to a letter addressed to U.S. President Donald Trump.

Kim expressed deep appreciation for "the energetic and extraordinary efforts made by Your Excellency Mr. President and for the improvement of relations between the two countries and the faithful implementation of the joint statement".

This latest incident comes shortly after Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang resulted in North Korea accusing Pompeo of making a "unilateral and gangster-like demand for nuclearization".

The statement was carried by North Korean state-run press right after U.S. State Secretary Mike Pompeo finished his two-day visit to the communist country.

"We hope that the ongoing diplomacy related to North Korea paves the way to resolving geopolitical tensions in a peaceful and permanent manner", the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said.

Pompeo also said sanctions would remain in place until "a final fully verified denuclearization" that he said Kim had agreed to occurred. About 100 wooden transport cases were sent to the DMZ in recent weeks to prepare for receiving USA troop remains.

In a statement to Anadolu Agency, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the US was informed "midday" that the North Koreans wanted to move the meeting back to July 15.

North Korean officials denounced the meeting at its conclusion, accusing the USA of having a "gangster-like" attitude in negotiations.

The Trump administration has insisted that progress is being made.

Asked how far he thought the still young England team could progress in the next World Cup, he said: "This far, if not the final". It is what it is, but we'll try and play that game with as much pride as a team as try and finish on a high.

In the report, the USA pointed the finger at China and Russian Federation for continuing to sell refined petroleum products to North Korea. "We will be ready".

During their meeting, Trump even presented a brief video promoting a prosperous, more robust economic future for North Korea, were it to give up its nuclear arsenal.

An estimated 30,000 U.S. soldiers died in the 1950-53 Korean war.

"Midday today they contacted us and offered to meet on Sunday".

North Korean officials have failed to turn up for talks with a U.S. team on the repatriation of the remains of American soldiers killed in the Korean war.

The president's comments on China appeared to reflect concern that US imposition of punitive tariffs on Chinese imports last week could make China less cooperative in pressuring the North over its nuclear and missile programs.

Pompeo, Trump's point person for all things North Korea, conceded Washington and Pyongyang "still have a long ways to go".

According to The Chosun IIbo, a South Korean newspaper, Trump and Kim discussed "Rocket Man" during a lunch between the two in Singapore last month.

But Pyongyang warned that the future of the peace process was being jeopardised by "unilateral and gangster-like" U.S. demands.
