S.Korean minister proposes US-N.Korea tradeoff

On U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's upcoming visit to Pyongyang, Park said the party hoped both sides "open their hearts" and talk candidly.

Pompeo will also travel to Japan, South Korea and China from October 6-8, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters.

The US State Department has said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to North Korea for further talks concerning the country's denuclearization.

CrowdStrike says it has detected continuing North Korean cyber intrusions in the past two months, including the use of a known malware against a potentially broad set of targets in South Korea, and a new variant of malware against users of mobile devices that use a Linux-based operating system.

They held the first-ever summit between a United States and a North Korean leader in June.

Pompeo said Wednesday he's optimistic he'll come away with a plan for a second summit between Trump and Kim and progress on a "pathway for denuclearization".

Critics have pointed out that the Singapore declaration contained no firm commitments from North Korea to dismantle its nuclear and missile programs and USA officials have expressed frustration at North Korea's evasion of sanctions.

Ri said North Korea had taken "significant goodwill measures", such as stopping nuclear and missiles tests and dismantling a nuclear test site, but there had been no corresponding response from Washington.

Pompeo has refused to comment on the declaration option.

Pompeo was invited to visit Pyongyang this month during a September 26 meeting with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho.

In a commentary, KCNA yesterday said declaring the war's end should have "been resolved half a century ago", and called it "the most basic and primary process for the establishment of new DPRK-US relations and peace" on the Korean peninsula "to which the US was also committed", referring to North Korea by its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

"We will never beg the United States to lift sanctions", it said.

It is part of a wider pattern of malicious state-backed cyber activity that has led the Trump administration to identify North Korea - along with Russia, Iran and China - as one of the main online threats facing the United States.

"Without any trust in the USA, there will be no confidence in our national security, and under such circumstances there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves first".

Earlier that day, North Korea's Ri struck a different tone, telling the United Nations that continued USA sanctions were deepening Pyongyang's mistrust in the United States and there was no way the country would disarm unilaterally under such circumstances. "There's no nuclear testing and there's not testing of rockets".

"I'm telling President Trump: 'Enough with I love you, '" Graham said during an interview at the Atlantic Festival in Washington, D.C.
