The DPRK warned Washington not to erroneously interpret its recent "peace gestures" - like the promise of Kim Jong-UN to stop nuclear test as a "sign of weakness".
The bilateral relations between the two Korean countries are gearing up after the inter-Korean summit was conducted successfully in April after a gap of three decades. Kim also pledged to close its nuclear test site this month and invited USA experts and journalists to verify the move.
One ominous sign was commentary from North Korean state-run media following the Korean leaders' meeting calling on the U.S.to drop its "anachronistic hostile policy" and "bad manners".

"It is the arrogance of outsiders to suggest that the North Koreans are debating or talking to us because of either Trump-ian pressure on the right or [South Korean President] Moon's liberal engagement on the left".
Experts say other possible venues could be Singapore or Ulaanbaatar.
If the Kim-Trump summit is held in Panmunjom, Trump might even become the first sitting USA president to set foot in North Korean territory by simply crossing over the inter-Korean border in a conciliatory gesture similar to Moon's.
