  • U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during their second summit meeting in Hanoi Vietnam on Feb. 28 2019

North Korea said on Friday its deadlocked nuclear talks with Washington "will never be resumed" unless the United States adopts a new approach, again blaming it for the collapse of the Hanoi summit in February.

However, Trump and other United States officials have brushed that aside, calling for Kim to take action on a commitment to denuclearise. UN Security Council resolutions, including Resolution 1695, specifically prohibits North Korea from launching any ballistic missiles, he said, adding: "I know that because I wrote it".

During his visit, Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will "talk about making sure the integrity of the Security Council resolutions are maintained", Bolton said.

If it sticks to its current demands, "the United States would not be able to move us even an inch", the Korean official stressed, barring any future more flexible approaches from U.S. officials, "the prospect for resolving the nuclear issue will be much gloomy".

Following the collapse of the Trump-Kim summit, North Korea also significantly slowed the pace of its engagement with South Korea, which has been eager to improve bilateral relations and help revive discussions between Washington and Pyongyang.

North Korea's formal name is the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Washington's position on the North's denuclearization is consistent and a repeated pattern of failures to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons should be stopped, Bolton said, defending the recent US seizure of a North Korean cargo ship.

"The underlying cause of setback of the DPRK-US summit talks in Hanoi is the arbitrary and dishonest position taken by the United States, insisting on a method which is totally impossible to get through", the statement read, accusing the US of having "deliberately pushed the talks to a rupture by merely claiming the unilateral disarmament".

"They [North Korea] wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety and we couldn't do that.sometimes you have to walk, and this was just one of those times", Trump had said.

Bolton said Stephen Biegun, the USA special representative for North Korea, "can't wait" to meet his North Korean counterpart again, "but they haven't responded", adding that Biegun was ready to get on a plane and go "anywhere, any time".

Pyongyang's foreign ministry also denounced it as an "outright denial" of the spirit of the Singapore summit Trump and Kim held previous year.

"The president is aware of the priority Japan places on it", Bolton said.

An Abe-Kim summit "could be substantive assistance to that", he said.
