To that end, the USA and South Korea announced last week the creation of a new working group to "strengthen our close coordination", including on "sanctions implementation and inter-Korean cooperation that comply with the United Nations sanctions", according to State Department deputy spokesperson Robert Palladino.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference following Tuesday's midterm U.S. congressional elections at the White House in Washington, U.S., November 7, 2018. "We will reconvene when our respective schedules permit", she said in a statement. But the Blue House would not reveal the reason for the postponement and referred questions to the State Department.

"Gen. Dunford was simply highlighting that the Defense Department is in support of the State Department when it comes to the ongoing diplomatic negotiations with North Korea", JCS spokesperson Col. Patrick S. Ryder told Voice of America.

U.S. critics say that North Korea has yet to make any concrete concessions and it has rejected demands for what it described as its "unilateral disarmament".

A meeting between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean officials set for Thursday (Nov 8) in NY has been postponed and will be rescheduled "when our respective schedules permit", the US State Department said on Wednesday.

"The United States remains focused on fulfilling the commitments agreed to by President Trump and Chairman Kim at the Singapore summit in June", it said. But we're not in any rush at all.

Speaking at a National Assembly hearing, Chung added, "North Korea is aware that reporting a list of its nuclear weapons is a very important step toward denuclearization, but he feels the process must come after concrete measures are taken to build up trust by both sides".

North Korea has long sought USA recognition as a nuclear state and guarantees for the survival of the generational Kim regime, which human rights groups consider one of the most repressive in the world. "Some time next year, I would say".

Remarks about the Korean Peninsula by a top U.S. military officer have sparked debate over the future of the 28,500 American troops stationed in South Korea.

After the cancellation, South Korea tried to quell concerns Wednesday, with presidential spokesperson Kim Eui-kyeom telling reporters, "We don't believe that the delay means the North Korea-U.S. summit won't happen or momentum for the summit has been lost", according to Reuters.

Over the last few months, the situation on the Korean Peninsula has significantly improved with the North Korean leader pledging to give up his nuclear aspirations after several rounds of talks with his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in and a historic summit with Trump this summer.
