North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui, center, speaks at a gathering for diplomats in Pyongyang, North Korea on Friday, March 15, 2018.

He said: "We have no intention to yield to United States demands (at the Hanoi summit) in any form, nor are we willing to engage in negotiations of this kind".

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will soon make a decision on whether to continue diplomatic talks and maintain the country's moratorium on missile launches and nuclear tests, the senior North Korean official said, noting the US threw away a golden opportunity at the recent summit between their leaders.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will soon decide whether to continue diplomatic talks and maintain his moratorium on missile launches and nuclear tests, a senior North Korean official said Friday, adding that the US threw away a golden opportunity at the recent summit between their leaders.

U.S. national security adviser John Bolton, who has argued for a tough approach to the North, said last week that Trump was open to more talks but warned of tougher sanctions if Kim did not denuclearise.

'I want to make it clear that the gangster-like stand of the USA will eventually put the situation in danger.

She said it was entirely up to Kim whether to continue the launch and test moratorium, and said she expects he will "clarify his position" within a short period of time.

Even so, she said personal relations between the two leaders are still good "and the chemistry is mysteriously wonderful".

Choe said it was the USA that was being too demanding and inflexible. We are watching the situation closely.

In response, Seoul's presidential office said that the South Korean government will continue the efforts to faciliate dialogue between United States and North Korea under any circumstances.

The bench made it clear that Sreesanth will get the opportunity of being heard by the committee on the quantum of the punishment. The Supreme Court further said that its order should have no effect on criminal proceedings pending against S Sreesanth.

Choe's comments echoed the North's usual rhetoric at tense points in its dealings with Washington.

She also said the US had "lost a golden opportunity" at the US-North Korea summit in Hanoi on February 27 and 28.

The second Trump-Kim summit broke down over differences about USA demands for Pyongyang to denuclearise and the North's request for sanctions relief.

Choe criticized Trump for claiming at a news conference after the talks fell through that Pyongyang wanted all sanctions to be lifted - a claim that the US State Department later admitted was not accurate.

"What is clear is that the US has thrown away a golden opportunity this time", she said.

"As a result, the summit ended with no significant result", the North Korean diplomat said.

Bolton, who has argued for a tough approach to North Korea, said last week that Trump was open to more talks but also warned of tougher sanctions if the North did not denuclearise.

China - North Korea's neighbour and only ally - urged patience and for further dialogue opportunities between Pyongyang and Washington.

The spokeswoman said the ministry had not confirmed why the North Korean officials decided not to attend.

South Korean and Japanese defence-related shares surged following the reports.
