South Korea to pay more toward US troop presence

US Activity seen at missile plant near Pyongyang

It quoted Mr Suh as saying North Korea continued to run its uranium enrichment facility at the main Yongbyon nuclear complex after the first summit between Mr Trump and its leader, Kim Jong-un, in June in Singapore.

"The public at home and overseas that had hoped for success and good results from the second DPRK-U.S. summit in Hanoi are feeling regretful, blaming the U.S. for the summit that ended without an agreement", Korea Central News Agency reported, citing a commentary in the Rodong Sinmun newspaper.

Trump and Kim met last week in Vietnam in a summit meant to reach an agreement on North Korean denuclearization.

A senior State Department official told reporters on Thursday that Washington was keen to resume talks as soon as possible, but North Korea's negotiators needed to be given more latitude than they were ahead of the summit. The official was not authorized to speak publicly to the state of negotiations with the North Koreans and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The Sohae launch facility at the Tongchang-ri site has been used for satellite launches and engine testing but never for ballistic missile launches.

"It is hard to gauge why North Korea is performing this activity now".

South Korea and the United States signed a deal on Friday that would increase Seoul's financial contribution for the deployment of USA troops in the Asian country.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who has said it was Seoul's "outmost priority" to prevent nuclear negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang from derailing, nominated a dovish scholar as his new point-man on North Korea on Friday in an apparent effort to push further his engagement policy with the North.

It remains at four points, but the race for the Champions League places, which also involves Manchester United and Chelsea , hots up.

North Korea may be preparing for a missile or space launch, United States news outlet NPR has reported, based on satellite image analysis of a key facility near Pyongyang.

North Korea's state media on Thursday called the new, smaller US-South Korea exercise "a wanton violation" of previous agreements to ease tensions and remove hostility among them. "But I would be very disappointed if I saw testing".

Before the summit, it was thought North Korea might decommission that site in exchange for the US agreeing to a formal statement ending the Korean War and perhaps relief from some sanctions.

North Korea on Thursday attacked ongoing joint military exercises between Seoul and Washington as an "open challenge" to moves toward peace on the Korean peninsula.

Satellite images taken weeks after the first Trump-Kim summit had shown the North was taking steps to dismantle the rocket engine test stand and the rail-mounted transfer structure at the launch pad.

The Sohae Launch Facility, which the country uses to launch satellites into orbit and other technologies to aid its intercontinental ballistic missile (ICMB) program, had previously been partly dismantled after the two leader's first meeting last summer.

He said it was impossible to know if North Korea was preparing a military missile or a space rocket.

With no deal between the two nations looking likely, the U.S. delegation left early - later insisting further talks could be thrashed out.
