Trump says ‘very happy’ with progress in NKorea talk

North Korea economy US-Led Sanctions Still Crippling North Korea’s Economy Author The Australian Tribune with RAW 23/07/201

Both Seoul and Pyongyang have been pursuing the formal end to the conflict, which ended only with a truce, within this year, while Washington reportedly wants that to occur following the North's tangible steps toward denuclearization.

Without directly referring to Moon, the North also criticized his recent remark that the leaders of North Korea and the U.S. It's hard to put exact numbers on those but it (export bans) crashed industrial production,' Shin said.

Then images from two days later show the continued presence of the crane and vehicles.

In one set of images, it appears that a rail-mounted processing building is being dismantled.

And as Trump has long promised, these crippling sanctions won't be lifted until North Korea verifiably abandons its nuclear weapons programs.

North Korea's coal-intensive industries and manufacturing sectors have suffered as the UN Security Council ratcheted up the sanctions in response to years of nuclear tests by Pyongyang.

After that summit, Trump said Kim had pledged to dismantle a missile site; USA officials later confirmed that the site that the us president was referring to was Sohae.

For his part however, Trump has privately expressed frustration over the perceived lack of progress in the talks, according to a United States official, though he regarded the testing freeze as a positive sign.

If the analysis of the satellite imagery is accurate, North Korea may be taking a small but significant step toward the disarmament that was agreed upon by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Trump during a landmark meeting in Singapore on June 12.

President Trump denied reports that he's frustrated with North Korea on Monday, saying that he and "all of Asia" are happy with the progress.

And while the regime has yet to show any signs of wanting to discuss its rights record, Scholte said her group's work in getting information into North Korea has been showing signs of success.

During his summit with President Donald Trump in June, he reportedly promised the U.S. leader that he would also take apart another site, but it is not clear whether that has occurred. The North Koreans understand what that means.

Critics of the Singapore deal claim the document lacks specifics and does not tie North Korea to a firm timetable on denuclearization or giving up its current nuclear weapons.

China, which is North Korea's closest ally and responsible for more than 90 per cent of the isolated country's trade, backs North Korea's call for a "phased and synchronous" approach to denuclearization.

United Nations special rapporteur on human rights North Korea, Toms Ojea Quintana, said earlier this month that if the women had been taken to South Korea unwillingly "that is considered the crime". "We and the Security Council and the global community have to support those talks, and the best way to support those talks is to not loosen the sanctions".
