He said he intends to meet with allies in June to discuss next steps to stop what he described as all of Tehran's nuclear and non-nuclear threats.

Pompeo says previous USA administrations had been "fooled before and we can't permit that to happen again".

Pyongyang then accused US National Security Adviser John Bolton of making "reckless statements" for his suggestion that the North could follow a "Libya model" of denuclearisation.

The newspaper noted North Korean officials remember that Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was killed in a Western-backed overthrow in 2011 after he gave up his nuclear program eight years earlier.
