Meanwhile, the ruling Democratic Party (DP) remained cautious about the North's strong rhetoric, which came in the midst of rapprochement created by a historic summit between President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

But he also warned him, giving two options - reach an agreement to denuclearize and remain in power or suffer the fate of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who was overthrown and murdered by rebels who were supported by a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation bombing campaign in 2011. "His country would be very rich", he said.

On Tuesday, the KCNA informed that North Korea's authorities revoked negotiations with Seoul that were scheduled for May 16, because of the Max Thunder joint military exercises between the US and South Korea that had started on May 11.

Cancellation of the summit, the first meeting between a serving United States president and a North Korean leader, would deal a major blow to what would be the biggest diplomatic achievement of Mr Trump's presidency.

Asked whether his comments meant that he disagreed with his national security adviser, the third-ranked of his administration, the President said, "I think when John Bolton made that statement, he was talking about if we are going to be having a problem, because we can not let that country have nukes".

North Korea took "a resolute step" to postpone the north-south high-level talks indefinitely until the South Korean authorities "take a responsible measure, and notified it to them and made this public through a KCNA report", he said.

A model involving national devastation for the country "would take place if we don't make a deal, most likely", Trump said.

So far, 2018 has been nearly clear of nuclear brinkmanship between Trump and Kim, but Thursday should remind us that as long as North Korea has nuclear weapons, the U.S. stands a hair's breadth from war.

Mr Trump has raised expectations for success even as many analysts have been sceptical about the chances of bridging the gap because of questions about North Korea's willingness to give up a nuclear arsenal that it says can hit the US. "We just can't do it", he said.

Pyongyang's official criticized Seoul for participation in joint military exercises with the USA, noting that the South supports Washington's position that comes down to the need to continue to exert maximum pressure over the North until its total denuclearization.

The inflammatory comments came at a time when the June summit is in doubt. "The North is pressing the South into standing on its side when it holds talks with the U.S.", Rep. Choung Tae-ok, a party spokesman, said.

Kim Kye Gwan said North Korea would never give up its nuclear program in exchange for trade with the United States.
