Following the US-North Korea summit in June between Mr Trump and Mr Kim, their mutual friend Rodman broke down in tears during an emotional TV interview in which he described the meeting as "amazing" and "a great day".

But since the summit, Trump and his top aides have been preaching patience when it comes to working with Kim.

An analysis co-authored by a prominent nuclear expert and a respected Korea analyst at Stanford found that it could take as long as a decade to implement an agreement in which Pyongyang gives up its nuclear weapons.

"We were also thinking about providing reciprocal measures", an unnamed spokesperson of North Korea's foreign ministry said at the time in a statement published by the official Korean Central News Agency.
