The South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, also downplayed the North Koreans' antics, stating it was all part of Pyongyang's "strategy" toward extracting more concessions from the United States.
"He's realized he can humiliate and ignore the U.S.as long as he flatters the president", Mount said.
This latest incident comes shortly after Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang resulted in North Korea accusing Pompeo of making a "unilateral and gangster-like demand for nuclearization".
But Kim apparently changed his mind after both Moon and Trump brought up the abduction issue in their respective talks, opting to see whether Japan would be willing accept its probe findings.
The US military has since announced that 100 wooden coffins have been moved to the inter-Korean border in preparation. Although Pompeo insisted progress continued to be made, North Korea accused the USA of making "gangster-like" demands.
An estimated 30,000 U.S. soldiers died in the 1950-53 Korean war.

Pompeo, speaking Wednesday to reporters as he arrived in Brussels for a NATO summit with President Donald Trump, said that change was up to North Koreans.
Pompeo was in Pyongyang from Friday to Saturday to try to flesh out a bare bones denuclearisation deal made during last month's historic summit between Kim and US President Donald Trump.
But in stark contrast, Pyongyang's take was overwhelmingly negative, with the North warning that the future of the peace process was being jeopardized by "unilateral and gangster-like" USA demands for its nuclear disarmament.
