North Korea 'really angry' at USA as tensions rise

President Donald Trump said Wednesday the U.S.is "in no rush" after talks between his top diplomat and a senior North Korean envoy were postponed, throwing stalled diplomacy over the North's nuclear weapons into further uncertainty.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's meeting with his North Korean counterpart, scheduled for Thursday in NY, has been postponed, the State Department said Wednesday.

The two were also expected to discuss corresponding measures by the United States, which analysts say could include a partial sanctions relief, declaration of an end to the Korean War and setting up a liaison office between the two countries.

USA critics say that North Korea has yet to make any concrete concessions and it has rejected demands for what it described as its "unilateral disarmament".

"But we're very happy with how it's going with North Korea".

Department of State spokesperson Heather Nauert said the talks between Pompeo and the North Korean delegation "will now take place at a later date" without giving a reason.

"I would love to take the sanctions off, but they have to be responsive too".

"We are continuing negotiations with related countries to ensure a declaration officially ending the Korean War within this year as promised and we are very open when it comes to the format", he said.

Despite warm words from President Trump since meeting Kim in Singapore, his administration has insisted on maintaining pressure on Pyongyang until a final agreement is reached.

The allies have already suspended most of their major joint exercises since the first US-North Korea summit in Singapore in June.

Trump has cast his diplomacy with the elusive thirtysomething leader as evidence of his masterful deal-making.

A Thursday meeting between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his North Korean counterpart in NY has been abruptly called off without explanation in another setback for the Trump administration's nuclear negotiations.

"And nobody else could have done what I have done", he said.

Democrats have said they are determined to obtain more information about meetings between Trump and Pompeo and Kim, anxious that Trump is so eager to make a "great deal" that he will give Kim too much with little in return. Instead of following through on that, in recent days North Korea has been criticizing the US over its sanctions, threatening last Friday to bring back its "byongjin" policy - advancing its nuclear arsenal and economic development at the same time.

The official was also open to the possibility of a working-level meeting between Stephen Biegun, the U.S. envoy for North Korea, and his North Korean counterpart Choi Son-hui. Then, North Korea agreed to allow inspectors to visit its missile engine test site and nuclear test site.

Park Byung-kwang of the Institute for National Security Strategy in Seoul, said, "It appears to be an attempt to convey the North's thoughts and to gauge our stance at a time when progress in U.S".

Another expert said that North Korea might have not been ready.
