USA ready 'to engage immediately' with North Korea

Patty Aguilar | 20 September, 2018, 20:08

Representatives for the White House and the U.S. State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"Chairman Kim expressed his wish that he wanted to complete denuclearization quickly and focus on economic development", Moon told a news conference in Seoul, describing his three-day summit with Kim in the North's capital of Pyongyang.

"Kim Jong Un has agreed to allow Nuclear inspections, subject to final negotiations, and to permanently dismantle a test site and launch pad in the presence of worldwide experts", Trump wrote.

"The Chinese envy us because they can't go down to the lake from their side but we can", Kim said.

Diplomacy between the USA and North Korea that had gotten nowhere since the summit clicked into gear again.

"I also asked for North Korea to release its restrictions on Kumgangsan facilities in December".

And the two Koreas, he said, 'will file a joint bid to host the 2032 Olympics.

Kim also pledged establishing closer ties with the South.

Mr Pompeo cited North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's decision to "complete the previously announced dismantlement of the Tongchang-ri site in the presence of USA and global inspectors as a step toward the final fully verified denuclearisation of North Korea".

The day after the June 12 Trump-Kim summit, Pompeo said he hoped to achieve "major disarmament" by North Korea by the end of Trump's first term in January 2021.

"While North Korea has stopped testing missiles and nuclear devices, they have NOT moved toward denuclearization", he tweeted.

The declaration, published by South Korea's presidential office, states that Seoul and Pyongyang share the view that the Korean Peninsula "must be turned into a land of peace free from nuclear weapons and nuclear threats, and that substantial progress toward this end must be made in a prompt manner".

In addition to inviting North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho to meet when both are in NY next week for the annual UN General Assembly gathering of world leaders, Pompeo said Washington invited Pyongyang's representatives to meet the USA special representative for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, in Vienna at the "earliest opportunity".

However, their premier accord on the issue that most worries the world - the North's pursuit of nuclear-tipped missiles that can accurately strike the USA mainland - contained a big condition: Kim Jong Un stated that he would permanently dismantle North Korea's main nuclear facility only if the United States takes unspecified corresponding measures. North Korean representatives were also invited to meet with the US envoy for North Korean policy, Stephen Biegun, in Vienna "at the earliest opportunity". "Today the North and South chose to remove all threats that can cause war from the entire Korean peninsula".

It would be the first such trip by a North Korean leader since the Korean War ended in an armistice, leaving the peninsula divided by the Demilitarised Zone and technically still in a state of war, and Moon said the historic journey could happen later this year. Kim vowed to move toward denuclearization if the United States takes steps of its own.

But it left open a burning question: Will the concessions North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is offering be enough to persuade the U.S.to meet any of his demands? "I, here, propose that we completely settle 70 years of hostility and take a big peaceful step to become one again".
