North Korea's bluster is part of a tactic to stake out a position ahead of the summit with Trump.

The North also cancelled high-level talks due Wednesday with Seoul because of US-South Korean military air exercises, denouncing the drills as a "rude and wicked provocation".

"We haven't been notified at all" about the threat, Trump said as he welcomed the president of Uzbekistan to the White House. While Kim has agreed to discuss "denuclearization", he wants a phased approach and an end to Trump's "maximum pressure" campaign of global sanctions and military threats.

Sanders said the comments from North Korea were "not something that is out of the ordinary in these types of operations".

"If the U.S.is trying to drive us into a corner to force our unilateral nuclear abandonment, we will no longer be interested in such dialogue and can not but reconsider our proceeding to the DPRK-U.S. summit", said a translated statement from North Korea. It also underscored South Korea's delicate role as an intermediary between the USA and North Korea and raised questions over Seoul's claim that Kim has a genuine interest in dealing away his nukes.

"We shed light on the quality of Bolton already in the past, and we do not hide our feeling of repugnance towards him", Kim the vice minister said.

"With that being said, my attitude is whatever happens happens", Trump said.

"North Korea is actually talking to us about times and everything else as though nothing happened", Trump told reporters at the start of a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. He's gonna run this the way he sees fit.

"As follows from the US Department of State's reaction, the news the high level talks with the South Koreans have been canceled has had a stunning effect on the Americans, who wish to go ahead with the negotiations".

Cancellation of the much-anticipated summit with Kim Jong Un - the first meeting between a serving U.S. president and a North Korean leader - would be a setback for what is being touted as President Trump's biggest diplomatic achievement.

The US President's comments came after North Korea threatened to pull out of the first ever summit with the US, planned for 12 June in Singapore.

Pyongyang made it clear that Washington's negotiating tactics are unacceptable, and it is not interested in talks that only envisage unilateral denuclearization without guarantees North Korea won't be left totally defenseless in case of aggression.

DPRK is the acronym of the North's formal name in English, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Nishimura says Japan will continue to cooperate with the US and South Korea and they agree on the need to maintain sanctions until the North changes its current policy.

The statement also warned that the U.S.

By referring to itself as a "nuclear weapon state", North Korea was not only distinguishing itself from Libya or Iraq, it was also potentially signaling that the North is seeking an arms control agreement, not disarmament.

Bolton has repeatedly said that the administration plans to pursue "the Libya model", which calls for a strict monitoring and inspection plan to ensure North Korea has denuclearized. South Korea and the United States have held the exercise twice a year starting from 2009.

Analysts said Pyongyang appeared to be trying to redefine the terms of the debate.
