North Korea Calls U.S. Attitude to Latest Talks ‘Regrettable’

North Korea Calls U.S. Attitude to Latest Talks ‘Regrettable’

"These are complicated issues, but we made progress on nearly all of the central issues", Mr Pompeo told reporters on the airport tarmac before leaving Pyongyang, following his third visit to North Korea. We did have a good set of conversations yesterday.

"I think we made progress in every element of our discussions", he said, according to a pool report from usa journalists who accompanied him to North Korea.

Pompeo, however, gave a rosier view of two days of recent negotiations with North Korean officials in a statement to reporters following his return to the USA on Saturday. "There are things that I have to clarify".

Kim later said that "there are things that I have to clarify" to which Pompeo responded that "there are things that I have to clarify as well".

The two also agreed to the establishment of working groups led on the U.S. side by U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines, Sung Kim. Amb.

In practical terms, Pompeo mentioned only that officials from both sides would meet on July 12 as a working group to discuss the repatriation of the remains of some United States soldiers killed during the 1950-1953 Korean War.

Unlike his previous visits, which have been one-day affairs, Pompeo spent the night at a government guest house in Pyongyang after a three-hour dinner with Kim Yong Chol, something the North Korean official alluded to in comments as they began their talks.

President Trump may have declared diplomatic victory immediately after his cordial June meeting with Kim Jong-un.

When asked about reports that North Korea is building up sites tied to its nuclear weapons program, Pompeo insisted that Kim Jong Un is "still committed" to complete denuclearization.

The statement says that America betrayed the spirit of last month's summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Earlier rumors during the week stated the State Department's objectives in North Korea had changed and that the Sec. of State may be willing to forgo complete denuclearization.

US intelligence officials told Reuters that Pompeo would try to agree on at least an initial list of nuclear sites and an inventory that could be checked against available intelligence.

Also high on the agenda is the issue of the remains of USA soldiers missing from the 1950-53 Korean War. Trump said after the Singapore summit Kim had agreed to send the remains back to the United States.

Both issues are considered essential tests of whether Kim is serious about talks.

However, the North said the outcome of the talks was "very concerning" as it had led to a risky phase which might rattle the country's "willingness for denuclearisation that had been firm".

That change raised suspicion that the U.S. was softening its demands for the country, an argument that State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert had insisted on Friday wasn't true.

Pompeo headed to Pyonyang on Friday for the third time this year, "seeking to fill in some details on those commitments and continue the momentum toward implementation of what the two leaders promised each other and the world", he said in a statement. The countries also agreed to create working groups that will be overseen by Sung Kim, the U.S. ambassador to the Philippines who has handled some lower-level discussions, to work out what State Department spokeswoman called the "nitty gritty details" of future talks.

The danger now is that if happens if Trump finds that North Korea isn't willing to bend to his most unrealistic demands, the countries could find themselves in an even more unstable position than where they started.
