Mr Trump had earlier said that sanctions would "remain in effect" until "the nukes are no longer a factor", but it was unclear exactly what that meant.
However this stock phrase, favored by Pyongyang, stopped short of longstanding U.S. demands for North Korea to give up its atomic arsenal in a "verifiable" and "irreversible" way.
Ahn Il-san, the North's chief delegate, said the delay was due to "certain headwinds" without elaborating, adding the two sides should overcome future obstacles based on mutual understanding and the spirit of the inter-Korean summit.
Trump was also accused of being overly flattering is his language toward Kim, who leads one of the most repressive governments in the world, after saying the North Korean leader was a "talented man" who "loves his country very much".
He said that Kim is "very smart" and a "good negotiator". Also, by letting North Korea dictate what the United States military does, Trump sends the USA down a slippery slope.
Bret Baier's first interview with Donald Trump since he became POTUS, was tearing up the TV news turf this evening, after the Fox News political anchor asked POTUS about his just-wrapped summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Following the summit, Trump told reporters during a news conference in Singapore that Kim agreed to "destroying a major missile engine testing site" and that it would be done "very soon", without elaborating further on which testing site or timing.

Greeting the South Korean delegation, An, the North's top delegate, joked that Kim would be recorded as the first person in uniform who has crossed the military demarcation line that divides the two Koreas.
It all started when Jesse Watters kvetched that Trump gets no respect despite the fact it was the Obama administration that "botched pretty much everything they touched".
And he sought reassurance that the US military presence in Japan would not be reduced, after Trump indicated that he would like to withdraw all or some of the more than 28,000 troops in South Korea at some point, as both a cost saving measure, and to reduce a perceived overextended USA military presence overseas.
The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Mr Trump expressed his intention to halt US-South Korean joint military exercises, offer security guarantees to the North and lift sanctions against it as relations improve.
Experts said the decision to postpone the drills was a win for Beijing, who have long sought a way to drive a wedge between the United States and its East Asian allies.
But others said it's a great step forward for peace.
