This combination of two file photos shows U.S. President Donald Trump, left, speaking in the State Dining Room of the White House, in Washington on February 26, 2018, and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un attending a party congress in Pyongyang, North Korea, on May 9, 2016.

The official was referring to US claims that Trump's policy of maximum political pressure and sanctions are what drove the North to the negotiating table.

Amidst preparations for a planned summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Pyongyang has criticized, what it called "misleading" claims that Trump's policy of exerting maximum political pressure and sanctions have brought North to the negotiating table and called it a "provocation".

Trump had previously suggested that the demilitarised zone between the two Koreas - the site of a recent summit between Kim and Moon - could also be an appropriate venue for his meeting with the North's leader.

The date and location of the summit between Kim and the US president have yet to be announced.

The South's Yonhap news agency carried a similar report.

The potential economic benefits of cooperation also bolster hopes of peace between North Korea and the US.

The USB was presented to Kim after he crossed the heavily guarded DMZ into South Korea by Moon Jae-in last month for the leaders' historic meeting at the border village of Panmunjom.

"As for the summit location, the possibility of Panmunjom, originally considered to be the leading contender, has fallen", a source knowledgeable of planning for the event said.

Singapore has become the most likely choice for the White House due to practical reasons, including that both the US and North Korea have embassies there, which would make preparations easier. He also threatened the North Korean leader with "fire and fury".

North Korea has also described movement of United States military assets in to the region as "a unsafe attempt to ruin the hard earned atmosphere of dialogue and bring the situation back to square one".

South Korea's presidential Blue House said on April 29 that Kim was ready to hold talks with Japan at "any time". As I said yesterday, stay tuned. "Good things are happening, but only time will tell!".

The White House has said its pressure campaign on North Korea will continue until the North dismantles its nuclear program. "I had one of the fake news groups this morning, they were saying, 'What do you think President Trump had to do with it?' I'll tell you what, like how about everything". Mr Trump hinted the release of Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim was in the offing. Vice President Mike Pence is at right.

Japan "will never be able to set foot on (North Korea's) sacred land, even in 100 million years", the paper said in an online commentary.
