But since Trump's June summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, North Korea's top state-run newspaper has praised the USA president's "will and decision" to have the "historic" meeting.

China has called Donald Trump "irresponsible" after the USA president cancelled his top diplomat's latest trip to North Korea, suggested Beijing was stalling efforts to disarm Pyongyang.

'While we consider the delay of the visit to North Korea as unfortunate, we believe it's most important for the North Korea-U.S. dialogue, including Secretary Pompeo's visits to North Korea, to contribute to substantial progress in complete denuclearization and the establishment of a permanent peace regime in the Korean Peninsula, ' South Korea's Foreign Ministry said.

At the same time, lawmakers from both parties, including GOP hawks who generally support Trump, have expressed concerns about such a move, as it could be used by the North to demand the removal of USA troops from South Korea and potentially Japan without anything in return.

Japan has been sceptical of North Korea's diplomatic charm offensive, which has led to summits with Trump, as well as leaders of South Korea and China.

The ministry says South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-hwa spoke with Pompeo over the phone and they pledged joint efforts to keep the momentum of dialogue alive.

Trump said on Friday that Pompeo would still head to North Korea "in the near future", saying this was likely to occur when the US-China trading relationship is "resolved".

One of the most recent warnings came from unnamed United States officials, who told the Washington Post that North Korea appeared to be building new intercontinental ballistic missiles.

In tweets, Trump argued that because of his "tougher trading stance, " the Chinese were not "helping with the process of denuclearization as they once were".

After a visit by Mr Pompeo in July, North Korea condemned his "gangster-like demands", only for another trip to be announced, albeit now cancelled.

I applaud the efforts made by President Trump as he tries to stabilize the region and halt North Korea's efforts to be a nuclear power.

"I wore the military uniform for 40 years, long enough to know that we should not look to reduce by an equal number of guard posts", Song, a retired admiral, said during a session of the National Assembly's defense committee.

South Korea's presidential Blue House spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said on Monday that the canceled visit "cannot be said to have zero effect" on the plan for the liaison office.

"I have confidence that Kim Jong Un will honor the contract we signed &, even more importantly, our handshake".

The U.S. has been calling on China to strictly enforce wide-ranging United Nations sanctions targeting North Korea's economy.

However, some analysts suggested Trump's move may also be a negotiating ploy.
