North Korean media continues to criticize the US for imposing sanctions on the country, but it has toned down its anti-U.S. rhetoric.

This AP file photo shows White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. "We've not heard anything directly back from North Korea, although we expect to hear something directly from them", the New York Daily News reported, citing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as telling reporters on Monday in Nigeria's Abuja, when asked about plans for the meeting, likely to take place in May.

Mnuchin said that Trump has been very clear that the objective is to get rid of nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula.

Trump administration officials say there will be no additional conditions imposed on North Korea before a first-ever meeting of the two nation's leaders.

President Trump also said he hopes there will be no further North Korean missile tests during contacts with U.S. officials.

The report comes after Trump floored his own advisors when he agreed to accept an offer to meet nuclear-armed dictator Kim before the end of May. "South Korea planned military exercises", he added.

"He's marshalled unprecedented economic and diplomatic pressure on the regime in North Korea and this breakthrough - and we hope it is a breakthrough - is a result of the strong leadership the president has provided on the world stage", Pence said.

North Korean media have also remained silent on a proposed summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in due to take place at the Panmunjuom border village in the demilitarized zone dividing the two Koreas by the end of April. Trump believes that the upcoming groundbreaking talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will be a "tremendous success" and also expressed confidence in Pyongyang's "promise" to suspend missile tests.

"The North has yet to take the necessary actions to facilitate such a trip", Yonhap reported on March 12. The paper is not part of North Korea's official media, but it serves as a mouthpiece for Pyongyang. It has continued to warn the United States and Japan against war-mongering, but its rhetoric has been tame compared with threats exchanged at the height of tensions a year ago.
