North Korea on Monday warned it could cut off dialogue with the United States and slammed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for urging the global community to maintain sanctions on its regime.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week told nations to "stay committed to applying diplomatic and economic pressure" over the North's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes while calling on it to return to talks.

Missile tests by Pyongyang have come during a long break in disarmament talks with the U.S. and despite Washington offering help against the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement released by the North's official Korean Central News Agency, an unnamed official in charge of negotiations with the USA called Pompeo's remarks "ludicrous".

Negotiations have since been deadlocked over sanctions relief and what the North would be willing to give up in return.

"The world would not know why US-North Korea relations continue to get tangled up, despite the special relationship between the leaders of North Korea and the United States".

"The president's position on North Korea (DPRK) and mine has been in lockstep since the very first day I became secretary of state", he said, responding to the DPRK's complaint that Pompeo was going against the will of Trump, who recently offered assistance with the coronavirus pandemic in a letter to DPRK leader Kim Jong-un, according to Yonhap. "It is puzzling who the real commander in chief is in the United States".

At that meeting, the two men signed a vague statement on denuclearisation.

"President Trump has also been clear, until we get to that point, till we get to the point where we have made sufficient progress along the way, the sanctions - not American sanctions, but United Nations security council resolutions - will continue to be enforced and in place", Pompeo said.

The criticism came after the North said it had successfully tested "super-large multiple rocket launchers" on Sunday.

North Korea has said the U.S. will not drop its hostile policy even though their two leaders have a "special relationship", state media KCNA reported yesterday. With the world focused on the coronavirus pandemic, the regime has carried out four such firings this month.

KCNA said the launch was to examine the strategic and technical features of the launchers.

Pompeo told Yonhap that the US stands by its offer to help the DPRK fight the new coronavirus.
