The spokesman also warned that the claims are a "dangerous attempt" to ruin a budding détente on the Korean Peninsula after Kim's summit last month with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

North Korea on Sunday criticized what it called "misleading" claims that President Trump's policy of maximum political pressure and sanctions are what drove Pyongyang to the negotiating table.

North Korean President Kim Jong-un and his South Korean counterpart pledged to work toward the "complete denuclearization" of the peninsula when they met on April 27 - the first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade. The U.S. leader attempted to visit the Demilitarized Zone by helicopter last November during his visit to the South, but the trip was halted by poor visibility.

But Graham, a former British diplomat who served in Pyongyang, noted that "Trump is clearly curious to see North Korea up-close".

Trump told reporters on Friday that arrangements for the meeting had been set but didn't elaborate any further.

"The US is deliberately provoking [North Korea] at the time when the situation on the Korean peninsula is moving toward peace and reconciliation thanks to the historic north-south summit and the Panmunjom Declaration", the statement said, according to the BBC.

The potential economic benefits of cooperation also bolster hopes of peace between North Korea and the US.

Specific details and measures regarding denuclearization is expected to be negotiated between the US and North Korean leaders in their highly anticipated summit.
