KIM'S WARNING: North Korea Says US 'Ruining Mood' Ahead of Summit

The North Korean official also alleged that USA claims are misleading that Pyongyang is motivated by fear of United States military strength and concerns about aggressive economic sanctions put in place because of North's nuclear and missile programs.

Kim is scheduled to meet US President Donald Trump next month - reportedly in Singapore, with denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula high on the agenda.

There has been no official announcement so far on when or where the U.S.

However, Trump and a number of top US officials have repeatedly said that Washington's tough policy toward North Korea, along with pressure on China, have played a decisive role in turning around what had been an extremely tense situation.

The Trump and Kim Jong Un meeting has been confirmed and a date set - though which date? - we don't know yet. However, Pyongyang will hold on to its nuclear arsenal to be able to respond to any nuclear threat or provocation, according to the state KCNA news agency.

Since Kim promised Moon at their summit that he would shut down the Punggye-ri nuclear site in May and invite American and South Korean experts and journalists to inspect the demolition, according to Blue House, that may be on the agenda for the phone conversation.

Amidst the claims from President Trump [VIDEO], the North Korean leader wants to make clear that the topic of denuclearization and agreeing to meet with President Trump was his decision.

The USB was presented to Kim after he crossed the heavily guarded DMZ into South Korea by Moon Jae-in last month for the leaders' historic meeting at the border village of Panmunjom.

Rihanna's Met Gala Style Through The Years
On the red carpet of the 2012 Met Gala , Rihanna went with an all-black ensemble that matched her now darker hair. Just like the more recent Met Galas , the theme seemed to be taken as a suggestion.

Such a claim "cannot be construed otherwise than a unsafe attempt to ruin the hardly-won atmosphere of dialogue and bring the situation back to square one", said a foreign ministry representative in Pyongyang, accusing the US of "deliberately provoking the [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] at the time when the situation on the Korean Peninsula is moving toward peace and reconciliation".

There has been much speculation over the location of historic summit. He also threatened the North Korean leader with "fire and fury".

"This act can not be construed otherwise than a unsafe attempt to ruin the hard-won atmosphere of dialogue and bring the situation back to square one", he said. The South Korean president said in January that Trump "deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks". As I said yesterday, stay tuned.

One contentious issue is whether the US would pull troops from South Korea as part of an agreement with North Korea to end its nuclear program. "I think you're going to be seeing very, very good things". Trump hinted that the release of Kim Dong-chul, Kim Hak-song and Tony Kim was in the offing. A dispatch from the North's Korean Central News Agency says that promise was fulfilled Saturday by a decree of the nation's Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly.

Israeli authorities begin putting up road signs for U.S. embassy in Jerusalem
