Trump plans to give Kim a 'Rocket Man' CD

President Trump shared a letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Thursday, praising the work being done with that country.

The release of the letter comes amid growing skepticism around Pyongyang's willingness to denuclearize.

Pompeo said just before leaving Pyongyang last Saturday that the meeting was set for July 12, but "could move by one day or two".

At the Singapore summit on 12 June, Mr Trump and Mr Kim signed a document that included a pledge from North Korea to rid the Korean peninsula of nuclear weapons.

President Trump met with North Korean Dictator 26 days ago.

But Pyongyang warned that the future of the peace process was being jeopardised by "unilateral and gangster-like" United States demands.

The North Korean leader also voices hope that "the invariable trust and confidence in Your Excellency Mr. President will be further strengthened in the future process of taking practical actions".

Separately, the U.S. has accused North Korea of violating a United Nations sanctions cap on refined oil products.

North Korea failed to show up Thursday for talks with USA officials on returning the remains of American war dead from the Korean War in the early 1950s, a new sign of tension between the two countries.

The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee has asked the head of US intelligence to assess whether North Korea's posture and actions regarding denuclearization match up with the Trump administration's claims.

In a statement to Anadolu Agency, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the USA was informed "midday" that the North Koreans wanted to move the meeting back to July 15. But the agreement was terribly vague, and Trump ended up jettisoning a huge bargaining chip by voluntarily announcing an end to joint military exercises with South Korea, which always terrify North Korea.

"Both the U.S. and the North are still in discussion over when to meet", the official added.

In Thursday's report submitted to the U.N. committee responsible for monitoring North Korean sanctions, the United States said North Korean tankers filled up with oil using ship-to-ship transfers at least 89 times in the first five months of 2018. "I have it for him", Trump said.

At the end of previous year, South Korea impounded a Hong Kong-registered oil tanker suspected of having secretly transferred refined oil to a North Korean vessel, thus violating United Nations sanctions. The talks Sunday are expected to involve officials from the Pentagon and the U.N. Command, which commanded US -led allied forces during the war and is involved in maintaining the armistice that ended the fighting in 1953.
