  • Trump’s ‘love’ for Kim is undercutting his own team’s necessary toughness

Prior to denuclearization, however, Kim wants to secure a joint statement declaring an end to the 1950-1953 Korean War, which was never formally ended with a peace treaty.

Rep. Park Kyung-mee, a spokeswoman of the ruling progressive Democratic Party, said in a statement that this year's National Foundation Day was more meaningful due to better prospects of establishing permanent peace on the Korean Peninsula, adding that 70 years of conflict with the North was "relieved at once".

The two are also likely to talk about the second Kim-Trump summit.

In a press briefing on Tuesday, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said that Pompeo will talk with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, on Sunday, Xinhua news agency reported. He said there's continuing worldwide support for economic sanctions to remain on North Korea in the meantime.

"Pompeo is expected to attempt to set up a second summit between Kim and President Trump, who previously met face-to-face in Singapore this past June", writes Fox.

Pompeo had previously said last month's inter-Korean summit marked a shift in talks between the United States and North Korea "through the process of rapid denuclearisation of North Korea, to be completed by January 2021, as committed by Chairman Kim, and to construct a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula".

Vipin Narang, an associate professor of political science at MIT, said the comments "really puts a little bit of cold water" on the hope that North Korea might provide a list of its nuclear and missile sites in return for an end-of-war declaration.

Citing his exchange of fiery rhetoric with Kim past year, Trump also said the two were being "tough" over the North's testing of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles capable of reaching the U.S.

Ri, speaking at the United Nations, also criticized the US for a lack of trust in North Korea's denuclearization policy.

-North Korea summit that U.S. President Donald Trump said last week would be held "in the not too distant future". -North Korea relations, "especially if it were to go badly".

On Saturday, Trump lavished praise on Kim - considered by human rights groups to be one of the world's most repressive leaders - and said they had fallen "in love" after the exchange of letters.

North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui, who handles nuclear weapons issues and negotiations with the United States, arrived in Beijing on Thursday on a two-country trip that will also take her to Russian Federation. "So I was reiterating this as a time line that they were potentially prepared to agree to", Pompeo said at the State Department. At the time, Trump said there hadn't been enough progress on denuclearization.

"We have a very good relationship".
