Kim Jong-un Blew Off Mike Pompeo to Visit a Potato Farm

S. Korea approves rare screening of N. Korea films

But Trump tweeted Monday that he has "confidence" that Kim would honour the denuclearisation "contract" they signed at the summit and accused China - the isolated North's powerful neighbour and ally - of seeking to undermine the deal.

Add North Korea as an interest to stay up to date on the latest North Korea news, video, and analysis from ABC News. "They didn't give it", Trump told reporters when asked about the CD.

But given the harsh statements from Pyongyang following Pompeo's trip last week - the North Korean Foreign Ministry blasted Washington's stance on denuclearization as "gangster-like" - it's possible that it's gonna be a long, long time. China's attitude on this issue is consistent and clear-cut. "We will steadfastly play a positive role and make constructive contributions towards pushing for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and peace and stability in the region", Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told press briefings repeatedly.

After Trump met with the North's leader Kim Jong Un on June 12, the president announced he would halt all joint "war games" with South Korea so long as North Korea was negotiating in good faith.

Pompeo said after his trip that there had been progress in the talks.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in a potato field.

Pompeo traveled to Pyongyang last weekend to flesh out the details of an agreement reached by Trump and Kim at their historic Singapore summit last month. CVID is an acronym for "complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization", a term used for the goal of the process of ending Libya's nuclear weapons program. "We had anticipated the USA side would come with a constructive idea, thinking we would take something in return", a foreign ministry official said in a statement. "But, it seems that the US misunderstood our goodwill and patience".

Instead, North Korea appears as though it's conducting business as usual.

Kim Jong Un put potatoes ahead of Mike Pompeo during a U.S. visit to agree denuclearisation details, state media has suggested.

South Korea said on Tuesday it has chose to scrap an annual government mobilization drill this year as part of a suspended joint exercise with the United States but will carry out its own drills to maintain readiness.The ministers of safety and defense made the announcement at a media briefing on Tuesday.
