No further meetings between the two leaders have been scheduled since their historic talks in Singapore last month, but rumours are swirling that the United States could hold out the possibility of another meeting as a "carrot" to encourage the North Koreans to meet their commitment to denuclearize.

Citing a diplomatic source in Washington, the newspaper said Kim mentioned the derogative nickname to Trump during their meeting in Singapore last month.

But during behind-the-scenes negotiations following the historic inter-Korean summit in April this year, North Korea told Japan at the working-level that the Stockholm deal has "not been scrapped", the sources said.

Trump and Kim made the vague commitment at the June 12 summit, each signing an agreement that said North Korea would abandon its nuclear program.

Pompeo landed in Pyongyang for his third visit as Washington's top diplomat, according to Agence France-Presse. "There is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea".

The regime vowed to obtain a submarine capable of launching a long-range ballistic missile before the Trump-Kim summit.
