USA special envoy to North Korea Stephen Biegun said on August 21 that he had declined the post of ambassador to Russian Federation to focus on the denuclearization efforts regarding North Korea, Reuters reported.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expressed displeasure Tuesday about North Korea's series of missile tests, but said he wants to resume negotiations on denuclearization with Pyongyang.

"This is an important framework for the United States, Japan and South Korea and ... should be maintained", Kono said, adding that he had discussed the intelligence pact with Kang, but declining to give details. Other food items are tested for radiation upon arrival in South Korea.

It called South Korean President Moon Jae-in last week an "impudent guy rare to be found" for hoping to resume inter-Korean talks while continuing military drills with the US.

North Korea's state KCNA news agency said the most recent launch, on Friday last week, was in protest at joint US-South Korea defence drills that the regime claims are a rehearsal for an invasion.

"We haven't gotten back to the table as quickly as we would have hoped", Pompeo said.

"I will not be taking up a diplomatic posting in the Russian Federation and I will remain focused on making progress on North Korea", Biegun told reporters.

Beigun also denied media speculation that he may be appointed as the new US ambassador in Russian Federation.

Beigun was in Seoul for talks with South Korea.

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono on Wednesday said he wanted to see progress toward resolving a feud with South Korea over compensating Korean wartime workers that has put a deep chill on ties between Washington's two Asian allies.

In reporting on the drills, North Korean media stated that the launches were warnings to Seoul, while the North Korean Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying the South would not be involved in any future dialogue. During their third meeting at the Korean border village of Panmunjom on June 30, the two leaders agreed to restart the talks but there has been no public meeting between the countries.
