North Korea Upgrading Nuclear Research Facility

  • Kim Jong Un Asked China's Xi Jinping To Help Lift Sanctions Report

A US delegation led by Sung Kim, US ambassador to the Philippines, met with North Korean counterparts at the border village of Panmunjeom on Sunday to discuss next steps on the implementation of the summit declaration, the State Department said.

Heather Nauert made the comment on Tuesday ahead of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang later in the week.

Sanders pointed to a meeting over the weekend between Sung Kim, the USA ambassador to the Philippines, and North Korean officials in the demilitarized zone.

Immediately following the summit, Trump also announced the US was canceling a major joint military exercise with South Korea scheduled for August, Ulchi Freedom Guardian - even calling it a "war game", and "provocative" - the same language used by North Korea and China.

A number of media reports over the weekend citing intelligence officials said North Korea has no intention of abandoning its nuclear stockpiles, and information gathered since the Singapore summit points to the existence of undisclosed facilities to make material for nuclear bombs.

US President Donald Trump says talks with North Korea are "going well", claiming that without him, the United States "would now be at war with North Korea".

If Kim's goal is to string along the United States as he continues covertly to develop his nuclear and missile inventory, he has many cards to play with Trump.

During the Singapore summit, Kim repeated his vague pledge to work toward the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

The UN special rapporteur on human rights in North Korea visited South Korea on Monday and urged Seoul to press Pyongyang on human rights issues. We should give it a try and see where it goes.

Production of nuclear fuel has also ramped up while North Korea expands and improves a ballistic missile site.

Trump and Kim ended the summit by signing an agreement which stated the North Korea would pursue the denuclearization process.

The top U.S. diplomat's visit comes amid growing doubts about Pyongyang's willingness to abandon its nuclear arsenal. Seoul has been criticized by US lawmakers for failing to address North Korea's egregious human rights violations in cross-border talks.

Pompeo told CNN last week that he would not put a timeline on negotiations with North Korea, but he said the Trump administration will regularly assess the regime's seriousness about abandoning its nuclear program as the U.S. moves toward normalizing relations with Pyongyang.

As Kim marches closer to his dynasty's long-standing dream of having an arsenal of nuclear weapons that can reliably hit US cities within an hour, Trump looks like a gullible fool.

Pompeo and Kim are expected to discuss concrete and credible measures to rid Pyongyang of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. He also said he trusted Kim to follow through on denuclearization.

Still, there are gestures both sides could make to build trust along the lines of the United States president's unilateral decision to suspend joint military exercises with South Korea planned for August.
