Update at 2000 KST: This article has been amended with the latest developments on Pompeo's visit North Korean and USA officials held a second day of meetings in Pyongyang on Saturday, with both sides saying there several key issues they need to "clarify".
The peace process between the United States and North Korea was in crisis on Saturday after Pyongyang angrily rejected Washington's "gangster-like" demand for rapid nuclear disarmament, despite two days of intense talks.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Japan's Foreign Minister Taro Kono and South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung Wha speak with each other after a news conference in Tokyo, Japan, July 8, 2018.
A key aim of Mr Pompeo's two days of talks was to firm up North Korea's commitment to denuclearisation. Still, Pompeo dismissed North Korea's accusation.
The North Korean statement, carried by the official KCNA news agency, said the U.S. had gone against the spirit of the summit by putting unilateral pressure on the country to abandon its nuclear weapons.
It dismissed Trump's unilateral order to suspend joint USA and South Korean war games as a cosmetic and "highly reversible" concession and criticised USA negotiators who "never mentioned" the subject of bringing the 1953 Korean War to a a formal end with a peace treaty.
Sweden send Switzerland packing, book place in World Cup quarter-finals
Their team had just reached a World Cup quarterfinal for the first time in 24 years, and they were going to enjoy the moment. The Swiss certainly weren't playing like a team ranked sixth the world and with only one loss in their previous 25 games.
Speaking privately, U.S. officials suggested the North Korean statement was a negotiating tactic.
This quest brought him back to Pyongyang on Friday for his third visit and first overnight stay, and he left en route to brief his Japanese and South Korean counterparts in an upbeat frame of mind. Many were surprised when Trump agreed at the summit in Singapore to end joint military exercises with South Korea.
While Pompeo hailed progress at the latest talks, the KCNA commentary and the results he announced on Saturday will only add to unease that North Korea's commitment to denuclearisation is a facade, and it has no intention of giving up its weapons. But many nuclear and policy experts say it would take several years to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, if not decades.
The criticism from North Korea's foreign ministry suggests Washington and Pyongyang are not on the same page when it comes to denuclearization - and raises further questions about what, if any, substance came out of the Singapore summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un June 12.
"President Trump is committed to a brighter future for North Korea", Pompeo was quoted as having said in the pool report.
2018 iPhone lineup could finally bring back some color
It also faces stiff competition from the Google Pixel 3, however that is still expected to have just a single rear-facing camera. Apple could release a new iPhone later this year that comes in several colors, including "grey, white, blue, red, and orange".
Pompeo's visit to North Korea has led to the launch of working groups to deal with details such as verification. But he maintained that progress is being made.
Kim later said that "there are things that I have to clarify" to which Pompeo responded that "there are things that I have to clarify as well".
Also high on the agenda is the issue of the remains of US soldiers missing from the 1950-53 Korean War.
Officials from the two sides would meet next week in Panmunjom, on the border between the two Koreas, to discuss the return of the remains of the some 7,000 USA soldiers still listed as missing in action since the 1950-53 Korean War.
In stark contrast, Pyongyang's take was overwhelmingly negative, with the North warning that the future of the peace process was being jeopardised by overbearing United States demands for its unilateral nuclear disarmament.
He admitted "there's still more work to be done" in other areas.
