I have asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo not to go to North Korea, at this time, because I feel we are not making sufficient progress with respect to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
'Chairman Kim also emphasized he has never spoken ill of Trump to his aides or anyone really.
All eyes are on whether Kim will make a public speech, and if so, what kind of message he will send as denuclearisation talks have reached an impasse since Singapore.
The inter-Korean summit would come just before a gathering of world leaders at the United Nations in NY at the end of September, but Seoul said Thursday that it was unlikely Kim would attend.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signalled a willingness to revive stalled nuclear talks, with South Korean officials saying he wanted to "achieve denuclearization" during U.S. President Donald Trump's first term.
Kim also continues using the term "complete denuclearization" to suggest he expects American nuclear forces to be withdrawn from striking range of North Korea-a tall order given the very long range of USA nuclear forces.
The report said it was the leader's "will to completely remove the danger of armed conflict and horror of war from the Korean peninsula and turn it into the cradle of peace without nuclear weapons and free from nuclear threat".
The joint letter follows the recent resumption of temporary reunions of relatives from the two Koreas separated by the 1950-53 Korean War and comes days after top South Korean security officials returned from a meeting with Kim in Pyongyang.

The two Koreas have set a date for a new summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, even as US diplomacy with North Korea has stalled.
South Korean officials told reporters earlier today that Kim wants to continue the negotiations he and the USA have engaged in since the summit in Singapore.
And, speaking earlier Thursday in India, Pompeo said an "enormous amount of work" remains.
Moon and Kim agreed to formally end the war before the year's end when they first met in Panmunjom, but many here and in the United States have voiced their opposition to the move, claiming a formal end of the war may greatly weaken the need for the U.S.to maintain tens of thousands of American service members on the Korean Peninsula.
