  • U.S. President Donald Trump

A State Department spokesperson said the US and South Korea are committed to "close coordination on our unified response to North Korea".

The remark drew criticism from Trump.

"They won't do that without our approval", Mr. Trump said of the comments.

Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon said Thursday removing the sanctions has not been seriously considered and would be hard to do unless North Korea acknowledges responsibility for the 2010 attack.

The Trump administration maintains it's made good progress on getting North Korea to denuclearize despite no verifiable actions towards this taking place.

In an interview granted to the Washington Post on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in NY last month, Kang said: "What we need to proceed with the South-North cooperation project as identified in the Panmunjom Declaration [issued after the April inter-Korean summit] means that sometimes we may need waivers on the sanctions, but getting waivers is very different from seeking a weakening of the sanctions regime".

According to Moon's office, Kim told him last month during their meeting that Pope Francis would be "enthusiastically" welcomed into North Korea, despite the countries negative record with religious persecution. Moon's liberal government has favoured closer ties with the North, but has also vowed to adhere to worldwide sanctions which bar most trade with the regime.

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump told reporters that plans were being made for his second summit with Kim and that he thought "incredible" progress had been made in USA talks with the long-isolated North Asian country. You have no missiles flying.

He cited Kim's invitation to have inspectors visit the already dismantled Punggye-ri test facility, the site of all six of the regime's nuclear blasts. "You have nuclear closings".

"Especially when he meets with Pope Francis, he will convey Chairman Kim's message that he will ardently welcome him if he visits Pyongyang", the news outlet added.

"We haven't removed sanctions".

The Kaesong factory park was a major symbol of cooperation between the Koreas and an important income source for North Korea before the South's previous conservative government shut it down in February 2016 following a North Korean nuclear test and long-range rocket launch. "I'd love to remove them, but we have to get something for doing that". She also described Seoul's unilateral sanctions as a key obstacle to restarting South Korean tourism to the North's Diamond Mountain resort, which was suspended in 2008 following the shooting death of a South Korean woman there. An editorial titled "Kang flubs it" described her comments as "shortsighted" and said the paper was "dumbfounded" by her remarks. USA secretary of state Michael Pompeo came away from meetings Sunday in North Korea without a date for another meeting or news on when key denuclearization milestones might take place. "If the Moon administration believes Pyongyang will more actively denuclearise as long we show sincerity, that's wishful thinking".
