North Korea cancels nuclear talks with US

The mushrooms come from the same region where North Korea has conducted its nuclear tests

The State Department said Wednesday that the meeting between Pompeo and Kim, which had been due to take place in NY on Thursday, would now take place at an unspecified later date when their respective schedules permit. "We're in no rush".

"We are going to make it. another day", he told reporters in Washington.

"The US maintains the position that it would maintain maximum pressure until the North produces visible progress on denuclearisation and so does the global community including the EU", Chung Byoung-gug told the JoongAng Ilbo newspaper.

Trump said he still expected to hold a second summit with Kim. "Sometime early next year", he said.

Pyongyang has complained that Washington has not made concessions in return for the moves it has taken and last Friday warned it could resume development of its nuclear program if the United States did not drop its sanctions campaign.

North Korea asked the US to delay a planned high-level meeting between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his North Korean counterpart Kim Yong-chol in NY, citing a hectic schedule, South Korea's top diplomat confirmed Thursday.

"The sanctions are on".

"The US explained to us that North Korea had asked the US to delay the meeting because their schedules were very hectic", Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said at a parliamentary session on Thursday.

Trump and Kim held a highly choreographed summit in June in Singapore, where they announced aspirational goals for a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula without describing how and when it would occur.

"While it's notable and disappointing that North Korea's envoy failed to show up for talks with the U.S., it's not altogether surprising", Jean Lee, head of the Korea program at the Wilson Center, wrote on Twitter.

Many officials in the US administration want to take time in setting up a summit because they're trying to get something more substantial after widespread criticism that Trump made large concessions to Kim in the first summit without getting much in return, said Park Hyeong-jung, an analyst from the Korea Institute for National Unification in Seoul.

The meeting was postponed at North Korea's request because of the "hectic schedules" of both countries, the Foreign Ministry said.

Trump spoke after his Republican Party lost control of the US House of Representatives on Tuesday after the Democrats rode a wave of dissatisfaction with his presidency in mid-term elections.

Critics say Trump's decision to start off his North Korean diplomacy with a leaders' summit, instead of building upward from lower-level talks, bestowed legitimacy on the North before it took any meaningful steps toward denuclearization.

Democrats have said they are determined to obtain more information about meetings between Trump and Pompeo and Kim, anxious that Trump is so eager to make a "great deal" that he will give Kim too much with little in return.
