Ri Thae Song, North Korea's vice-minister of foreign affairs in charge of relations with the United States, said that Washington's call for more talks is "nothing but a foolish trick hatched to keep the DPRK bound to dialogue and use it in favour of the political situation and election in the U.S.", state news agency KCNA reported, using the initials of North Korea's official name. DPRK refers to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the official name of North Korea.

"The US is keen on earning time needed for it, talking about the 'sustained and substantial dialogue, ' far from acting in response to the measures taken by the DPRK first", Ri said in the statement published via the Korean Central News Agency. The U.S. State Department has said North Korea punishes those who practice religion through torture, imprisonment and even execution, according to its Report on International Religious Freedom.

Ri added: "What is left to be done now is the US option and it is entirely up to the USA what Christmas gift it will select to get". And on Monday, a Japanese newspaper cited sources as saying that North Korea could test an intermediate or long-range missile in the coming weeks.

The threat appeared to be in response to a USA state department statement calling for "sustained and substantial dialogue" after North Korea's test of new multiple rocket launchers last Thursday.

Kim has set an end-year deadline for Washington to show flexibility in its position, but USA officials have described the deadline as artificial.

In a November 18 statement, Foreign Ministry adviser Kim Kye Gwan suggested North Korea had no interest in meeting with Trump at another summit unless the USA offered substantial concessions before the deadline.

Talks between President Trump and Kim previously broke down at a summit in February, with Trump saying that "they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, but we couldn't do that".

Lifting some of US sanctions imposed on the DPRK was a key demand at the Hanoi summit. "As we have got nothing in return, we will no longer gift the USA president with something he can boast of, but get compensation for the successes that President Trump is proud of as his administrative achievements".
