N Korea state media says people blame US for summit breakdown

However, following the first meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore past year, Trump raised eyebrows at a press conference when he said Washington would suspend the "very provocative" US joint military exercises with South Korea.

In a rare revelation, North Korea's Rodong Sinmun, the country's main newspaper, reported the breakdown of the Trump-Kim summit for the first time on Friday.

"The public at home and overseas that had hoped for success and good results from the second. summit in Hanoi are feeling regretful, blaming the United States for the summit that ended without an agreement", its Rodong Sinmun newspaper said.

Trump said he's a "little disappointed" by the reports of the new North Korean activity and that time will tell if US diplomacy with the reclusive country will be successful.

The failed talks with Trump raised new questions about Kim's strategy for coping with the global sanctions squeezing his country.

Talks between President Trump and Kim Jung Un collapsed in late February as the two leaders failed to reach an agreement at their second summit held in Hanoi.

North Korean documentaries are typically propaganda venerating Kim, the subject of a strong personality cult among the North's 25 million people.

Many experts think the lack of comprehensive joint exercises will eventually likely weaken the allies' military readiness if diplomacy fails and tensions with North Korea return.

Kim released his first public message since the Hanoi summit earlier this week, instructing propaganda officials to conduct "positive information" activities to spur scientific and technological development, according to the state media outlet KCNA.

He said no one in the USA administration advocated the incremental approach that North Korea has been seeking and the condition for its integration into the global economy, a transformed relationship with the United States and a permanent peace regime, was complete denuclearization.

What we learned from this was that the North Korean nuclear issue is thorny, with no straightforward solutions.

What's more, the breakdown in Hanoi has cast a shadow on each of Japan, the USA and South Korea.

"What they don't want is to send their guy here and POTUS says 'nope I'm out of here, see you on the 9th hole, '" the authority said.

North Korea-focused website 38 North said Thursday that commercial satellite images from March 6 indicate that the launch site appears to have returned to "normal operational status" following rapid construction to rebuild a launch pad and a rocket engine test stand.

The appointment of Kim Yeon-chul, a staunch backer of Korean reconciliation, may further improve ties with the North, officials said. It also became clear that Kim's hopes of faking denuclearization to get the global community to ease sanctions have failed.

The Sohae Launch Facility, which the country uses to launch satellites into orbit and other technologies to aid its intercontinental ballistic missile (ICMB) program, had previously been partly dismantled after the two leader's first meeting last summer.
