Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have been engaged in an increasingly bellicose exchange of rhetoric, with Trump suggesting the military option was the only way to halt the North's missile and nuclear programs.

"... Hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, making fools of U.S. negotiators".

On Saturday, Trump said USA "negotiators" were made to look like fools and "only one thing will work". First on Thursday, he cryptically told reporters they were witnessing "the calm before the storm".

Pyongyang's nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches also has resulted in global condemnation and a tightening of economic sanctions issued by the United Nations.

In May of this year, South Korea's Defense Ministry said the North was believed to be behind the military's online network, but did not say what had been leaked.

Trump told top USA military leaders earlier this week that it was the "calm before the storm". According to Park, Trump told Carter that North Korea issue should be handled by the current administration, not by a former president.

Tensions are mounting amid speculations that North Korea will engage in another major provocation around October 10th or 18th.

During Saturday's meeting, Kim Jong-un acknowledged the country faced with "ordeals" under a "stern" situation, but said that its economy had grown this year despite ever-tighter sanctions.

Park said Carter offered to help to current U.S. President Donald Trump several times, but did not get a positive response.

That triggered speculation of a possible military strike on North Korea, among other actions the president may have been foreshadowing.

Allowing Pyongyang to develop atomic weapons, USA policy towards North Korea has been a failure for a quarter of a century believes President Donald Trump.

Kim stressed that North Korea will simultaneously promote nuclear development and economic construction, adding that the country is determined to accomplish its historic mission of establishing national nuclear force.

"Our nuclear weapons are a priceless fruit of the Korean people's painstaking efforts to protect their destiny and sovereignty from the long-standing nuclear threats of the USA imperialists", KCNA quoted Kim as saying.

Trump's statements came just a week after he said that US State Secretary Rex Tillerson was "wasting his time trying to negotiate with 'Little Rocket Man, '" referring to Kim Jong-un.
