Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un Summit in Vladivostok

Trump's remarks come after South Korean President Moon Jae-in visited him last Thursday to discuss the way forward with North Korea after the second North Korea-U.S. summit in February ended without a deal.

Russian Federation is preparing for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's first summit with President Vladimir Putin, setting the stage for consultations between the long-time allies after Mr Kim's nuclear talks with the United States broke down.

Kim Jong-un said the breakdown in talks with the United States has raised the risks of reviving tensions.

Senior defense analyst Shin Jong-woo of the Korea Defense Security Forum in Seoul said North Korea is sending a message to its citizenry.

The U.S. State Department declined to comment on intelligence matters, but a source familiar with U.S. government assessments said that while U.S. experts thought the movements could possibly be related to reprocessing, they were doubtful it was significant nuclear activity.

"Because there wasn't an agreement with North Korea on Yongbyon, it would be interesting timing if they were to have started something so quickly after Hanoi", she said.

"Our teams are working with the North Koreans (DPRK).to chart a path forward so that we can get there".

Earlier that day, Pompeo told reporters in Dallas that he had seen Kim Jong-un's recent statement on a third North-U.S. summit, adding, "I appreciate that".

"I would love nothing more than to lift the sanctions on North Korea - I truly would, because it would mean we were successful", stated the USA secretary of state.

AP could not immediately and independently verify North Korea's claim.

It said their movement could indicate the transfer of radioactive material.

The US president walked away from a partial deal proposed by Kim, which included an offer to dismantle the Yongbyon complex.

He said the outcome in Hanoi led him to question the strategy he embraced past year of worldwide engagement and talks with the United States.

In a speech to the Supreme People's Assembly on Friday, Kim said: "It is essential for the USA to quit its current calculation method and approach us with a new one".

South Korea's Maeil Business Newspaper reported on Tuesday that Mr Putin and Mr Kim's summit will likely take place on April 24 in Vladivostok, before Mr Putin's April 26-27 visit to Beijing to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping. And in a year of talks, Pyongyang has given no public indication of willingness to abandon its weapons program unilaterally as Washington has demanded.
