Despite the warmer tone to the relationship, North Korea has not complied with USA demands to provide a complete inventory of its weapons programs and take irreversible steps to give up its arsenal.
The North Korean foreign minister contrasted Pyongyang's relations with Washington with the rapid progress made in inter-Korean relations through three summits this year, most recently September 18-20.
Trump began by talking of the massive threat that North Korea posed before he took office in January 2017.
Kim has also promised to accept global inspectors to monitor the closing of a key missile test site and launch pad.
At the UN, North Korea repeated its request to the USA to declare the end of the 1950-1953 Korean war, which ended with a ceasefire but without a peace treaty.
"The perception that sanctions can bring us on our knees is a pipe dream of the people who are ignorant about us", he added.
He said the continued sanctions are "deepening our mistrust" and deadlocking the current diplomacy.
"However, we do not see any corresponding response from the USA", he said.
Sabarimala temple: India's top court revokes ban on women
Similar to the president of the Travancore Devasom Board president, he said that the temple may have to implement the verdict. The battle in court reflected a wider split among India's women, pitting rival women's campaigns against against one another.
There was no immediate response from Washington.
Mr Trump and Mr Kim have said that they want to work towards denuclearising the Korean peninsula, holding an unprecedented meeting earlier this year in Singapore to discuss the idea.
After meeting with Kim in North Korea this month, President Moon Jae-in of South Korea urged the United States to declare an end to the war as an incentive for the North to denuclearize.
The subject of North Korea-U.S. relations have been raised several times during the course of the week at the United Nations by a number of member states.
This comment comes just days after the US President flaunted his relationship with Kim after receiving another "extraordinary letter" from Pyongyang.
North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told the United Nations on Saturday that continued sanctions on Pyongyang were deepening its mistrust in the United States.
The Trump administration is preparing for a second summit with Mr Kim to talk about denuclearisation.
Mr Trump was likely referring to the letters he received from Mr Kim that his White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders described at the time as "a very warm, very positive letter."
