U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will meet with his North Korean counterpart in NY this week to continue discussions on the denuclearization of the regime, the State Department said Monday.

"We have a good opportunity to continue discussions around the denuclearization", said Sunday, Mike Pompeo, announcing his next meeting with Kim Yong Chol.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday the U.S.is "in no rush" after talks between his top diplomat and a senior North Korean envoy were postponed, throwing stalled diplomacy over the North's nuclear weapons into further uncertainty.

Yoon Young-chan, a spokesman for South Korean President Moon Jae-in, said his government was aware of the postponement.

The top U.S. military officer said on Monday (Nov 5) that the United States would have to start making changes to its military posture on the Korean peninsula over time if talks with North Korea advance.

"I expect us to make real progress, for example, that the summit between our two leaders can be held", he added. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier that North Korea canceled the meeting while the State Department was preparing visas for the visiting delegation.

The cancellation of the talks comes just a week after North Korea threatened to resume its nuclear weapons programme if the United States failed to lift sanctions against the country. "Sometime early next year", he said.

"You could have a situation that South Korea and North Korea come to some kind of agreement and then suddenly there's an expectation that we would fall into line with that we would be willing to put scarce budget dollars into helping North Korea economically, you know, without having laid the groundwork or gotten enough concessions to make that possible", Kenney said at an Asia Society event that discussed USA policy toward Asia after the midterm elections. Then, North Korea agreed to allow inspectors to visit its missile engine test site and nuclear test site.

South Korean foreign minister Kang Kyung-wha said on Thursday the North had suggested a postponement.

The Democrats regained control of the US House of Representatives, where they will seek to keep Trump's agenda in check, while the Republicans maintained their majority in the Senate in Tuesday's midterm elections.

In August, Trump canceled Pompeo's planned trip to Pyongyang, citing a lack of progress in North Korea's denuclearization.
