North Korea 'really angry' at USA as tensions rise

Kim Yong Chol of North Korea meets with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last month in New York City

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday abruptly shelved plans to meet a top North Korean official in NY, the latest twist in diplomatic attempts to secure a potentially landmark peace deal.

But in Seoul, Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of the studies of north korea, has seen a bad sign in this report. We think it's going fine.

"The fear from America's perspective would be that the South Koreans might go too fast and agree to things that would involve, for example, our troops, our economic postures that we wouldn't be prepared to give [at this stage], without perhaps getting significant concessions on reductions of weapons testing", retired U.S. Ambassador Kristie Kenney said Wednesday. "The sanctions are on".

The Trump administration has said that sanctions will not be lifted until North Korea gives up its weapons.

The U.S. State Department earlier said that the top U.S. envoy for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, was to join Pompeo and Kim to discuss how to get to what it calls "achieving the final, fully verified denuclearization" of North Korea.

Pompeo was scheduled to attend a top-level U.S.

Pompeo will meet with Kim Yong Chol, vice chairman of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) Central Committee.

Instead of following through on that, in recent days North Korea has been criticizing the US over its sanctions, threatening last Friday to bring back its "byongjin" policy - advancing its nuclear arsenal and economic development at the same time.

But experts say North Korea's moves so far are largely cosmetic and easily reversible.

Pyongyang accused Washington of derailing commitments made by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump at their June summit in Singapore.

Diplomatic sources told CBS News reporter Kylie Atwood as recently as Monday that senior State Department officials were still confident in the plans for Pompeo's now-delayed meeting in NY.

The high-level North-U.S. talks had been set to take place in New York Thursday, a follow-up to Pompeo's fourth visit to Pyongyang last month.

The State Department on Monday announced that Pompeo would travel to NY with Stephen Biegun, the USA special representative for North Korea, to meet Kim Yong-chol.

Some analysts suggest a domestically weakened Trump may impact his foreign policy, even test his North Korean diplomatic gambit.
