A senior North Korean official says the United States threw away a golden opportunity at the Hanoi summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and suggested the North Korean leader will decide soon whether to keep talking with the US and maintaining his moratorium on missile launches and nuclear tests.

Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui told a meeting of diplomats and foreign media in Pyongyang on Friday the North has no intention of compromising or continuing talks unless the US takes measures that are commensurate to the changes it has taken - such as the 15-month moratorium on launches and tests - and changes its "political calculation." Choe said Kim would make a decision soon on whether to continue the launch and test moratorium.
