North Korea claims U.S. 'provocation' threatens peace

Trump has said he hopes to resolve the standoff between Washington and over North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs in what would be the first meeting between a North Korean leader and a sitting us president. And he capped it off with live remarks to reporters, something no other North Korean leader had done before.

Moon will also travel to Washington on May 22 to discuss plans for the highly anticipated US-North Korea summit, playing a key role in trying to facilitate an official end to the Korean war.

The North's official news agency quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman warning the claims were a "dangerous attempt" to disrupt the growing movement for reconciliation in the Korean Peninsula.

Today's comments were among the few the rogue regime has made since President Trump agreed to meeting Kim Jong-Un in March.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-In signed a peace treaty as Kim also crossed the Korean border which was termed as "historic" event by the media organisations. They are not going to play me!' So, I would tell Kim Jong Un the worst thing you can do is have a face-to-face with Trump and back out of the deal, or try to play him. South Korea said US troops need to stay in the area even after a peace treaty is concluded to replace the armistice.

The South Korean-based organisation is a four-member team which is responsible for affairs with North Korea.

He also criticised Washington for its ongoing "pressure and military threats" and its position that such pressure won't be eased until North Korea gives up its nuclear weapons completely.

Meanwhile China, North Korea's ally and neighbour, has sought to avoid being sidelined in negotiations on the Korean peninsula.

Another step may be the release of three Americans held in North Korea, which would be a significant show of goodwill from Kim.

North Korea is not the only country to have used time to assert its national identity.

The meeting comes weeks after an April 27 intern-Korean summit between South Korea's President Moon Jae-in and Kim was deemed a success. As of May 6, 2018, the prisoners have not been released; however, it has been reported they have been moved to the capital.
