But both countries have been on charm offensives ahead of the summit June 12 in Singapore between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, the first ever between a sitting United States president and a North Korean leader.
The United States and South Korea have welcomed the announcement as the beginning of North Korea's nuclear disarmament.
North Korean state media reported over the weekend that the country has scheduled the dismantlement of its nuclear bomb site for later in May.
We will remind, the decision on the closure of the landfill was made during the inter-Korean summit North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN and the leader of South Korea, moon Jae-In.
When asked if human rights would be on the agenda at the summit, for example, Pompeo said: "America's interest here is preventing the risk that North Korea will launch a nuclear weapon into LA or Denver".
Earlier on May 12, 2018, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of North Korea announced in a public ceremony about the of closing the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site.

However, Trump also withdrew the United States from a nuclear pact with Iran, raising questions over whether Pyongyang would trust Washington's promises. However, there are lingering doubts about whether Kim would ever agree to fully relinquish the weapons he probably views as his only guarantee of survival.

They also stated their intention to achieve the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. "I don't understand why North Korea is so rushed for it". Pompeo said that the US was willing to help the impoverished North boost its economy to levels like those in prosperous South Korea.
Annual military drills between Washington and Seoul have always been a major source of contention between the Koreas, and analysts have wondered whether their continuation would hurt the detente that, since an outreach by Kim in January, has replaced the insults and threats of war.
All of North Korea's six known nuclear bomb tests have taken place at Punggye-ri, in the northeastern of North Korea where a system of tunnels have been dug under Mount Mantap.
North Korea announced at a ruling party meeting last month that it was suspending all tests of nuclear devices and ICBMs, as well as the plan to close the nuclear testing ground.
Moreover, none of the tunnel entrances appear to have been permanently closed, according to 38 North.
Through the nuclear tests since 2006, the test site is considered to have huge amounts of nuclear material - such as plutonium and enriched uranium - which might well remain in the underground tunnel following the tests.
North Korea will join global efforts to ban nuclear tests, its ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, Han Tae Song, told the Conference on Disarmament on Tuesday. One official affirmed an assertion from the State Department that it has received no information from Pyongyang about the status of the talks.
And in the event Trump can secure the "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization of North Korea", Pompeo said US investment could be possible, with "private sector Americans coming in" to the North to improve its energy, infrastructure, and agriculture sectors. "It will make it more hard for Kim Jong Un to deny inspections now that he has placed them on the table".
