Pompeo: US Willing to Aid North Korea's Economy for Denuclearization

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo brought the prisoners home after his second meeting with Kim.

"There's a danger here of the peace track moving more quickly than the denuclearisation track", warned Abraham Denmark, an Asia expert and former senior United States defence official.

President Donald Trump has arrived at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington to greet three Korean-Americans as they return to the mainland USA after more than a year imprisoned in North Korea.

"For decades, we have been adversaries".

However, tensions began to ease beginning with North Korea's participation in the Winter Olympics in South Korea in February.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has repeatedly pushed for Trump to raise the issue of repeated abductions of Japanese citizens by North Korea in his upcoming meeting with Kim Jong Un. Did he talk today about that relationship? "They can ensure both the President's and Kim Jong-un's security, as well as provide neutrality", he added. And he used words like warm and substantive, which was a bit surprising coming from this, you know, tough-talking former congressman and Central Intelligence Agency director.

Both Kang and Pompeo stressed that their goal is to achieve a "complete" and "verifiable" denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

From Trump's standpoint, business-oriented Singapore is among Washington's closest trade and security partners in Asia.

"I think there is complete agreement about what the ultimate objectives are", Pompeo said, though he declined to offer more detail. Kim's acceptance of holding a summit in Singapore is a type of decision never made by his father, Kim Jong Il, who held the title of the party's general secretary.

"This summit worries China's leaders", said Clayton Dube, director of the USC U.S. "So let's take a look at where these bad actions are coming from".

"The next few weeks will be critical, requiring air-tight coordination between our two countries", Kang said.

In regards to sanctions on North Korea, Kang said that they would "remain in place until, and unless, we see visible, meaningful action taken by North Korea on the denuclearization track". Now, she was here, by the way, also to plan for her president's trip to Washington later this month.

In a Twitter reply to Mr Trump, he added: "May it lead to a successful outcome".

Analysts said Seoul shares will be affected by key economic data in the US and China next week. What is each side looking for in the run-up to those talks?

To accomplish that goal, he said it would involve a "robust verification program" that the USA will undertake with partners around the world. He calls it a big undertaking.

He said he had had good conversations with Kim, who he found to be a focused and rational interlocutor.

It was the early leading choice among top administration officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and White House chief of staff John Kelly, who recognised that the summit location would play an important role in how the talks are viewed around the world, reported CNN.
