Trump has 'little gift' for North Korea's Kim Jong

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un shakes hands with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

But after months of rhetoric from Trump about US allies not pulling their weight, it'd be far harder to get them on board for such a move.

"Secretary Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang this time has taken the first steps", she said.

Trump tweeted Monday that he had "confidence that Kim Jong Un will honor the contract we signed &, even more importantly, our handshake". This miracle can be yours. North Korea is still operating from the same playbook it has been using for decades.

The comments came after Pompeo had earlier Sunday in Tokyo brushed aside North Korea's accusation that the USA was making "gangster-like" denuclearization demands of the North. "If Americans go to North Korea and start living there, then there's virtually no chance that the United States would attack it or start lobbing bombs there". Pompeo has vowed that sanctions would remain until Pyongyang follows through on Kim's pledge to get rid of his atomic weapons.

"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.

"If those requests are gangster-like, the world is a gangster because there was a unanimous decision at the U.N. Security Council about what needs to be achieved", he said. "If I paid attention to the press, I'd go nuts".

Russian Federation has invited South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping to attend the economic forum as well, Yonhap said. "The road ahead will be hard and challenging and we know that critics will try to minimize the work that we've achieved".

"It appears that North Korean officials have traveled there to make preparations for Kim's possible participation in the Eastern Economic Forum to be held in Vladivostok this September". Trump has used "Rocket Man" as a nickname for Kim beginning a year ago, in a mocking reference to North Korea's frequent missile tests.

Pompeo said he had pushed North Korea on a promise to destroy a missile engine test site.

Pompeo also highlighted that the economic sanctions now imposed on the North "will remain in place until final, fully verified denuclearization as agreed by Chairman Kim occurs".

The North has declared Mr Trump's moves as "gangster-like" since the summit between the two leaders. The promised remains have yet to be delivered.

"Most of the time you don't come back with anything".

Trump, of course, bestowed Kim with the nickname of "little rocket man" when tensions between the United States and North Korea reached a fever pitch past year. But now that the United States is in a full-blown trade war with China, Beijing has little if any reason to do the country favors. "Our expectations and hopes were so naive it could be called foolish".

6 - One issue that was expected to be resolved but was not is the return of the remains of MIA personnel from the Korean War.
