South and North Korea to Hold Meeting for Peace on May 16

National Security Advisor John Bolton said on May 13 that the US government's permanent, verifiable and irreversible dismantling (PVID) means every nuclear weapon should be dismantled and transferred to Oak Ridge and uranium enrichment and plutonium reprocessing capabilities should be removed.

"The United States will also have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit in light of this provocative military ruckus jointly conducted with the South Korean authorities".

Kim, who picked Beijing to make his maiden official trip overseas in March, has also invited Xi to visit North Korea.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, a ministry official said that through the Wednesday meeting, the two sides are anticipated to agree on specialized talks or communication channels aimed at the continued development of cross-border relations.

The threats to call off the June 12 meeting between Kim Jong Un and President Trump in Singapore throw into question recent indications of progress between the two nations.

Besides, Mr Trump will go into the talks with the disadvantage of having pulled the USA out of the Iran nuclear deal - a move that is certain to have contributed to some amount of misgiving and suspicion in Pyongyang on Washington's reliability as a trustworthy negotiator.

North Korea claims the women were abducted by South Korea's National Intelligence Service, and the restaurant manager has suggested on TV that they did indeed have help from intelligence agents.

The move to suspend talks is also putting North Korea-US talks in jeopardy as North Korea is threatening to suspend the US summit as well.

The meeting will discuss specific plans needed to carry out the April 27 inter-Korea summit declaration, which includes pledges to finally end a seven-decade war this year, and pursue "complete denuclearisation".

Foreign policy experts have been skeptical of North Korea's sudden willingness to engage in discussions about abandoning its nuclear program, noting that the country has reneged on past promises.
