As a result, the US last week shelved a planned trip to Pyongyang by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, citing lack of progress on getting the authoritarian regime to abandon its nuclear weapons, as agreed upon at the Trump-Kim summit in Singapore.

Mattis emphasized a decision about joint exercises with the South Koreans had not been made and the Pentagon would make a decision in consultation with the State Department, depending on how the negotiations develop with North Korea to end its nuclear program.

"This is not helpful!" the statement said.

A research unit of South Korea's state-run Korea Development Bank (KDB) has compiled a report suggesting that North Korea has been mining cryptocurrencies, Yonhap News Agency detailed Monday.

A South Korea presidential spokesperson acknowledged that talks between Washington and Pyongyang were at a stalemate.

But it's far from clear how infrastructure would be defined under the United Nations sanctions, and the French rail operators told Reuters they had no plans to team up with North Korea.

But in the next sentence, Trump contradicted his Defence Secretary James Mattis, who had threatened to resume joint military drills between the US and South Korea as talks with North Korea stalled.

Then, on August 24, the president tweeted that he had cancelled Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's planned trip to North Korea because, "I feel we are not making sufficient progress with respect to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula". U.S. intelligence and defense officials have repeatedly expressed deep doubts about North Korea's willingness to give up its nuclear weapons and had not expected Pompeo's trip to yield positive results.

At the June summit, the first meeting between a serving USA president and a North Korean leader, Kim agreed in broad terms to work toward denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. "North Korea was under threat from the United States until the day it tested the ability to deliver a nuclear weapon to the United States". According to the Straits Times, a Singapore-based news outlet, North Korea plans to host a Pyongyang-based (NK Capital) conference regarding cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology in October of this year. -South Korea military exercises are scheduled for next April.

"Trump feels strongly that North Korea is under tremendous pressure from China because of our major trade disputes with the Chinese Government", the statement said.

The war games may be back on.

The information was provided by radio broadcast service Radio Free Asia (RFA) from the U.S., suggests that relevant names from the blockchain industry will be speaking at the event with North Korean business officials, to showcase the country's developments in tech and finance.

In his first press conference at the Pentagon since April, Mattis also took questions on US military policy toward Yemen, Turkey and Iran.

But Washington says North Korea must give up its nuclear weapons first. "I think their view is very straightforward", he said.

Mattis stressed Tuesday that while "several of the largest exercises" on the peninsula had been suspended to allow room for negotiations with Pyongyang, all other exercises were continued in order to maintain military readiness.
