Pompeo promises North Korea a rosy future as USA 'partner'

15 Mai 2018

Pompeo's surprise visit to North Korea appeared to be fruitful, as he returned with three Americans who had been held in North Korean labor camps.

"I think that we have a shared vision for what we hope".

She added that there must be "airtight" coordination between South Korea and the U.S. ahead of the Trump-Kim summit.

He said the regime's policy was now "to concentrate efforts on economic progress", but insisted that this had nothing to do with global sanctions imposed on the country.

"But we got, up front, our people home". Last week, USA intelligence said the North Koreans had started pulling cables from the tunnels at their nuclear test site - a first step toward closing them.

"The North hasn't set any conditions yet", a government official said. He has not yet revealed what the process would be, but experts say Trump needs a firm commitment from Kim in order to declare the summit a success.

"If that happens, it could give North Korea an opportunity to try to drive a wedge between Seoul and Washington", said Denmark, now a director at the Wilson Center, a think tank in the United States capital. "It is extremely important for North Korea to normalize diplomatic relations with Japan to walk along the right track as part of global society, while accepting its requirements".

The country is now believed to be on the cusp of developing an intercontinental ballistic missile that could deliver a nuclear warhead to the United States mainland. North Korea is expected to demand some form of relief nearly immediately. Journalists asked Pompeo what such a denuclearization would look like and if it meant carrying out inspections in North Korean nuclear plants.

The U.S. -North Korea summit in June could represent another important step in fulfilling the promise enshrined in that agreement.

President Trump thanked Mr Lee for hosting the summit. Recently, North Korea has made a decision to return three American citizens of Korean origin earlier convicted for espionage and hostile actions to the United States.

After their meeting with Trump, the three men will go to Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland for further evaluation and medical treatment, according to White House Press Secretary Lindsay Walters. "The president understands that there is a historic opportunity to achieve what the world has been unable to achieve for decades".

"Nobody thought we could be on this track in terms of the speed", he said. "But the fact is they are going to want to make a new and lasting deal, one that benefits all of Iran and the Iranian people".

"This is the key test", said Gardner.

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

"This administration has been significantly and sufficiently tough on North Korea".

Decades of financial stagnation, global sanctions, mass starvation and industrial scale human rights abuses followed.
