US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said North Korea has now offered to meet the delegation on Sunday.

US President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he has a "little gift" for North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, but wouldn't reveal what it is. "Great progress being made!".

The President's release of the letter comes shortly after North Korean officials failed to show up to a meeting with US leadership. Representatives of the two countries had been poised to meet in Panmunjom, which is regarded as the truce village on the inter-Korean border.

President Trump promised that if Kim did axe its nukes, the U.S. would help the impoverished nation build up its economy and open itself up to the world. The discussions about returning Americans soldiers killed nearly 70 years ago was perhaps the most tangible outcome from Pompeo's trip, which analysts expected would at least secure the release of some remains.

Adam Mount, an analyst at the Federation of American Scientists who focuses on US nuclear strategy and North Korea, said in a tweet that Kim "blows off Pompeo in Pyongyang, has his team stand up USA negotiators in the DMZ, but still delights Trump with a vague note".

"We agreed to the denuclearization of North Korea".

Last week, North Korea accused the USA of using a "gangster-like" tactics to push it towards nuclear disarmament after a fresh round of high-level talks.

According to documents seen by AFP, the USA sent a report to the United Nations sanctions committee that estimated at least 759,793 barrels of oil products had been delivered to North Korea between January 1 and May 30, well above the annual quota set at 500,000 barrels under a sanctions resolution adopted in December.

But Thursday's no-show comes after Kim scuttled a rendezvous with Pompeo during his trip to Pyongyang.

South Korea said on Tuesday it has chose to scrap an annual government mobilization drill this year as part of a suspended joint exercise with the United States but will carry out its own drills to maintain readiness.The ministers of safety and defense made the announcement at a media briefing on Tuesday.

Pompeo dismissed the criticism, stating the North Koreans "did not push back" at discussions over the circumstances under which Pyongyang might surrender and dismantle its nuclear weapons program. "We will be ready", she said in a statement.
