A meeting between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and officials from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea set for Thursday in NY has been postponed and will be rescheduled "when our respective schedules permit", the US State Department said on Wednesday.

Pompeo described the planned second meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and DPRK top leader Kim Jong Un as a chance of making a "substantial breakthrough" in the denuclearization on the Korean peninsula.

There's been little diplomatic progress in the five months since the June summit in Singapore where the US and North Korean leaders committed to "denuclearization" of the divided Korean Peninsula.

In December past year, UN Security Council adopted a resolution that imposed tougher sanctions on North Korea after Pyongyang's missile test. It offered no reason, and the North's propaganda services has not mentioned the meeting.

During a press conference on Wednesday mostly focused on midterm US elections, Trump contended that he had made more progress with North Korea than past administrations, and said that with sanctions still in place, he was not in a hurry to reach a deal with Pyongyang, which has halted nuclear and missile tests for the past year.

Russian Federation and China repeatedly supported the gradual easing of United Nations sanctions against North Korea.

As CBS News correspondent Ben Tracy has noted from Beijing, the Trump administration thus far has stuck by its stance that sanctions against North Korea will only be dropped once denuclearization is achieved, or at least demonstrably underway.

The development comes amid strained ties between South Korea and the United States over how to negotiate denuclearisation with North Korea.

Trump and Kim held their first summit in Singapore in June- the first summit of an incumbent US president and a North Korean leader.

He visited the White House in the diplomatic run-up to the Singapore summit, and has been Pompeo's chief interlocutor in the months since.

A think tank affiliated with the foreign ministry in Pyongyang warned Friday that the regime could resume nuclear work if the US side didn't relax its economic blockade. "We're in no rush", he said at a press conference.

"There have been cases in the past when US-North Korea talks were delayed, so there is no need to shift between hope and fear", a senior ministry official told reporters. -North Korea negotiations have completely broken down or "lost their momentum" because of the postponement.

South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-Wha confirmed during a parliamentary questioning Thursday that it was Pyongyang's decision to pull out of the meeting.
