In sign of detente, North Korea skips annual anti-US rally

North Korea news- Putin EPA Donald Trump has hailed his relationship with North Korea's Kim Jong-un

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CNN he would not put a timeline on negotiations with North Korea, but 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.

"I am not going to put a timeline on it, whether that's two months, six months, we are committed to moving forward in an expeditious moment to see if we can achieve what both leaders set out to do", Pompeo told CNN, referring to a June 12 summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

North Korea's state media were filled with reports, photos, and video of the June 12 meeting between Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim in Singapore.

In a statement, a U.D. official said the timeline will clarify what the implementation of the summit agreement should look like.

The North's agreement to hold only a single week of reunions for 100 families, falls far short of what many expected after Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in promised "comprehensive and groundbreaking advancement of inter-Korean relations" in their joint declaration at the end of the inter-Korean summit in April.

Pompeo told CNN that Trump's decision to suspend U.S. military exercises in the region will continue "only so long as there is a good-faith negotiation progress, productive results being achieved".

Argentina star is desperate and frustrated says Mascherano
Javier Mascherano, one of the squad's senior players, denied on Sunday that there was a rift between Sampaoli and the players. We've seen it in the Champions League though, when things don't go well, he can disappear on the pitch.

Children are indoctrinated to beware of Americans, and while the Kim regime is talking less about the need for nuclear weapons, it's said little about denuclearization - the action the USA wants. He has said Washington hopes to achieve major disarmament by North Korea within the next two and a half years, during Trump's current presidential term. The State Department has since said it has no travel plans to announce.

North Korea made a decision to call off its annual "anti-US imperialism" rally for this year, according to a report from The Associated Press.

His trip there from June 26-28 will be the first by a U.S. defense secretary since 2014, and comes as Sino-U.S. tensions have heightened over trade and China's muscular military posture in the South China Sea.

Marketing experts said the publicity generated from hosting the summit could be worth more than 10 times the cost to the tiny Southeast Asian city-state. "I heard it myself when I visited there as Central Intelligence Agency director, I heard it myself when I visited Pyongyang as Secretary of State and I heard it again where there was a group together with the President and Chairman Kim".

In 2002, North Korea admitted that it kidnapped 13 Japanese in the 1970s and 1980s, and five returned home.
