"I'm not sure why the USA came out with this different description", Choe said.
Choe said that Kim would make a decision "in a short period of time" about whether the regime will continue its "moratorium" on tests of nuclear weapons.
Between Feb. 16 and March 2, the Washington-based 38 North, a North Korea project of the Henry L. Stimson Center, detected structures on the launch pad at the Tongchang-ri launch site, also known as Sohae, had been rebuilt, although now it appeared activity had ceased.
USA national security adviser John Bolton, who has argued for a tough approach to the North, said last week that Trump was open to more talks but warned of tougher sanctions if Kim did not denuclearise.
At the summit, US President Donald Trump and Kim ended their meeting sooner than scheduled without reaching any agreement.
According to Choe, the decision will be included in an official statement from Kim concerning the direction North Korea plans to take in the wake of the Hanoi summit.
Trump has pointed to North Korea's freeze in nuclear and missile testing since 2017 as a positive outcome from almost a year of diplomatic engagement with North Korea.

"That's Chairman Kim's word", Mr Pompeo said. "I'd like to speak further within the USA government before we respond". "We'll look at ramping those sanctions up in fact", Bolton said. "I think Chairman Kim understands that".
Any launch would send the stuttering talks on denuclearisation into disarray, after the Hanoi summit broke up without agreement.
'What is clear is that the US has thrown away a golden opportunity this time, ' she said.
She accused the USA of taking a "gangster-like" stance, according to the Associated Press, but added that "personal relations between the two supreme leaders are still good and the chemistry is mysteriously wonderful". Not quite. North Korea's tactic might be to hope this will initiate a reaction from the US.
In addition, Moon said, "The role of South Korea in this situation, or the role of President Moon [Jae-in] is not a mediator but facilitator, because a mediator should be an interest-free party, but South Korea is also involved in this problem".
At the State Department on Monday, Pompeo said that the North Korean offer in Hanoi "simply didn't rise to the level that was acceptable given what they were asking for in exchange".
He declined to say when he plans to take action, saying, "The acid test is one that does not carry with it a specific date". Even Democrats who have introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump in the past, such as Rep.
