WASHINGTON, April 22 (Yonhap) -- U.S. President Donald Trump said Sunday that the North Korean nuclear crisis is far from over, but the regime's willingness to denuclearize is "great" for the world.

"We are a long way from conclusion on North Korea, maybe things will work out, and maybe they won't -- only time will tell," Trump tweeted. "But the work I am doing now should have been done a long time ago!"

   He lashed out at an NBC news anchor for alleging that the U.S. had given away a lot in negotiations with North Korea in return for nothing, saying, "Wow, we haven't given up anything & they have agreed to denuclearization (so great for World), site closure, & no more testing!"

   North Korea said Saturday it would stop all nuclear and ballistic missile testing and close a nuclear test site ahead of a potential summit with Trump in May or June.

Trump agreed to meet with Kim last month after the North Korean leader expressed a commitment to denuclearize.

Kim's latest remark has been with met with skepticism as it does not indicate a willingness to abandon the country's existing nuclear weapons.
