"North Korean officials have shown no indication that they are interested in or are ready for talks regarding denuclearization", she added.

Today (Tuesday), US Defense Secretary James Mattis came to the defense of State Secretary Rex Tillerson, following his attempts to find a diplomatic solution to the North Korean crisis.

United States officials and Western diplomat said that the Egyptian businessmen kept the transactions in the deal secret, noting that this incident prompted the latest in a series of intense USA complaints over Egyptian efforts to obtain banned military hardware from Pyongyang.

Kim responded to Trump's taunts in North Korea's state media by calling the USA leader a "dotard" and promising the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history".

"I think the whole situation's a bit overheated right now", Tillerson said.

"The recent missile tests by North Korea passed at high altitude and there was no fear of them falling in our territory or territorial waters so we did not shoot them down".

The fate of Americans held in North Korea is also a bone of contention.

And later in the month, North Korea suggested it might test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific.

"... I believe that Secretary Tillerson is accurately stating that we are probing for opportunities to talk with the North".

It is not clear whether North Korea was ever paid the $23 million for the weapons. This particular transaction between Egypt and Kim's regime secretly went about until USA intelligence discovered it.

Meanwhile, Pyongyang's weapons program has appeared to proceed apace. Gary Peters whether Trump's Sunday tweets saying that Tillerson was "wasting his time trying to negotiate" with North Korea "pulled the rug out" from his chief diplomat, Mattis said that while Trump did not back direct talks with Pyongyang he did support diplomatic engagement with China and others to help tackle the issue of North Korea's weapons program.
