In that meeting, Kim also agreed to talk about denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula but neither his conditions for doing so nor details about how this would be accomplished were discussed and have not been reported to date.

Kim expressed "his resolution to unify the two times.as the first practical step for national reconciliation and unity", it said, and the North's parliament on Monday adopted a decree to put the move into effect from Saturday.

"We'll be announcing it soon", Trump told reporters.

Kim and Mr. Trump are expected to meet later this month or in early June.

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.

A Foreign Ministry official said the USA was deliberately provoking the North by suggesting sanctions will not be lifted until it gives up nuclear weapons.

The White House explained that Trump's national security advisor, John Bolton, met his Soviet counterpart, Chung Eui-yong, on Friday and both said there were not any programs to change the USA - evenSouth Korea uncanny defense position.

Impoverished North Korea has been struck by a collection of United Nations and US sanctions in recent years in an effort to rein in its nuclear and missile applications. "[It says] we're serious about working with you for what we think is your real ambition - to be a wealthy East Asian country".

The New York Times reported that Trump has asked the Pentagon to prepare plans for scaling back the USA military presence in the allied Asian nation.

However, concerns that Moon and Kim's agreement to pursue a peace treaty could lead to the pull out of scaling back of US forces in the South, led to a drop in the approval rate, Money Today reported.

Moon met with Kim Jong-un last week at a Korean border village during last week's inter-Korea summit. However, Trump had, on several occasions, said he wanted a complete or partial withdrawal of the troops.

One ominous sign was commentary from North Korean state-run media following the Korean leaders' meeting calling on the U.S.to drop its "anachronistic hostile policy" and "bad manners".

During his presidential campaign, Trump complained that South Korea does not do enough to financially support the American military commitment.

There is no certainty that Seoul and Washington would see eye-to-eye on this issue much less between Washington and Pyongyang. Under the current agreement that expires at the end of 2018, the South provides about $830 million per year.

Trump and senior United States officials have suggested repeatedly that Washington's tough policy toward North Korea, along with pressure on its main trading partner China, have played a decisive role in turning around what had been an extremely tense situation.

But America will probably still insist Mr Trump's tough stance has been decisive considering just a year ago Mr Kim was launching long-range missiles at a record pace.

The expansion of the organisation comes in line as Seoul is trying to develop the geo-political exchanges with North Korea. "I would not mess with Trump if I were Kim Jong-un", Graham said to host John Catsimatidis.
