'We fell in love:' Trump swoons over letters from North Korea's Kim

On Saturday, North Korea's top diplomat Ri Yong Ho told the United Nations that Pyongyang doesn't see a "corresponding response" from the USA to its proposals to disarm.

Ri noted that North Korea had taken "significant good-will measures such as stopping nuclear and ICBM tests, dismantling the nuclear test site in a transparent manner and affirming not to transfer nuclear weapons and nuclear technology under any circumstances".

North Korea's top diplomat did not mention Trump by name during his speech, nor did he offer him any praise or credit for the summit or warming of relations.

Mr Trump meanwhile has said he expects to have a second summit with Mr Kim in the "not too distant future".

"The DPRK government's commitment to the denuclearization is solid and firm, however, it is only possible if the U.S secures our sufficient trust towards the USA", the foreign minister said.

The leaders shook hands at least nine times during the summit, with Mr Trump describing the North Korean dictator as "very talented". Most of the steps it has said it has taken could easily be replaced or reversed.

"The primary task for effectively implementing the DPRK-U.S. joint statement should be bringing down the barrier of mistrust", he added.

Ri told the United Nations general assembly in NY that North Korea is ready to implement the points that leader Kim Jong-Un and US President Donald Trump agreed to in their June summit.

On the contrary, Ri said, the United States is increasing pressure and sanctions.

He joked about criticism he would get from the news media for making a comment some would consider "unpresidential" and for being so positive about the North Korean leader.

On Saturday, September 29, the US President fuelled his "bromance" with Kim as he claimed that "they fell in love" after receiving "beautiful letters" from the leader of the nuclear-armed state.

The Security Council has unanimously boosted sanctions on North Korea since 2006 in a bid to choke off funding for Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Pyongyang has also made clear that they are looking for a formal declaration to the end of the Korean War.
