Trump suggests China might be interfering in U.S.-North Korea talks

Mike Pompeo meets with Kim Yong Chol for a second day of talks at the Park Hwa Guest House in Pyongyang North Korea

"Across the range of weapons and missiles, it's a broad definition of denuclearisation, and the North Koreans understand that and have not challenged that", he said.

"Very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea".

"We expected that the U.S. side would bring itself with a constructive proposal which would help build up trust true to the spirit of the DPRK-U.S. summit meeting and talks", the statement read.

In Tokyo on Sunday, Pompeo rejected the suggestion the two sides were far apart, describing North Korean officials as more receptive to U.S. demands behind closed doors.

It added the talks with Pompeo were "regrettable".

The top USA diplomat continued to describe his conversations with senior North Korean officials as "productive", even as North Korea attacked the US negotiating stance.

Those include the formation of a working group to determine exactly how North Korea's denuclearisation will be verified and a Thursday meeting with Pentagon officials to discuss the return of remains of American soldiers killed during the Korean War.

Pompeo claimed there was "progress on nearly all of the central issues" in nine hours of "productive conversations" with Kim's right-hand man Kim Yong-chol and others but came away without any concrete agreement on denuclearization.

Countries concerned, including South Korea and Japan, should realize the long and hard path to North Korea's denuclearization.

The winning candidate said he will make that proposal in a meeting Tuesday with current President Enrique Pena Nieto. However, she said that the move was made with "regret" and "very much in sorrow, not in anger" against a close ally.

Trump responded to that setback with a tweet: "I have confidence that Kim Jong Un will honor the contract we signed &, even more importantly, our handshake. It can be your miracle in North Korea as well", Mr Pompeo said.

"If the United States is being accused of gangster-like behavior, then the world is a gangster", Pompeo told the press in North Korea. "But this expectation and hope of ours was so naive as to be gullible", the statement said. Instead, on Friday and Saturday he held talks with Kim Jong-chol, seen as the North Korean leader's right-hand man, on how to proceed with denuclearisation. "Some places a great deal of progress, other places there's still more work to be done", said Pompeo, according to a pool report from US reporters who accompanied him to Pyongyang.

"The North is trying to get an upper hand in further negotiations", Yang said.

Despite Mr Trump's confidence that Mr Kim is committed to giving up nuclear weapons, the reconciliation process between the United States and North Korea was thrown into crisis on Sunday when Pyongyang angrily rejected Washington's "unilateral and gangster-like" demand for rapid nuclear disarmament.

Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, said on Twitter there was a danger of military action because Trump might now say he had tried diplomacy but was betrayed by Kim.

Speaking in Tokyo, Pompeo said his efforts to push the North on disarmament had the backing of the entire worldwide community.

US President Donald Trump said on Monday that China may be "exerting negative pressure" on North Korea, which this weekend criticised Washington's demands for denuclearisation, because of the trade war he launched against China last week.

"Proving once again that only fools rush in, Trump forced a summit for cheap headlines", Scarborough wrote, continuing the ongoing feud between himself and president Trump.
