Trump tweets confidence that Kim Jong Un will denuclearize, honor 'our handshake'

Trump tweets confidence that Kim Jong Un will denuclearize, honor 'our handshake'

There was speculation that during his trip to Pyongyang, Pompeo would bring back the remains of some American soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War.

"It's a broad definition", Pompeo said. "The miracle could be yours; it can be your miracle in North Korea as well".

That's why the vague 1-1/2 page agreement Kim signed with Trump on June 12 called for establishing a new relationship and a "lasting and stable peace regime". Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. 4.

Pompeo, who didn't even meet with Kim Jong-un, was firmly rebuked for the administration's demands that North Korea unilaterally denuclearize.

It downplayed the significance of the United States suspending its military exercises with South Korea, something trumpeted by Trump after the summit as a success, by saying it made a larger concession by blowing up the tunnels at a nuclear test site.

The statement included a personal appeal to the USA president: "We still cherish our good faith in President Trump", it said.

Robert Gallucci, formerly a USA ambassador-at-large and chief USA negotiator with North Korea in 1994, agreed that expectations for peace after the Singapore summit were overblown.

At a press briefing on Friday in Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying dismissed criticism from Washington about China's possible influence over Pyongyang in the nuclear talks.

The United States depends on China to enforce crippling sanctions against North Korea.

"We know it is a real possibility because we see how Vietnam has travelled this remarkable path", Mr Pompeo said. He said Trump should not have asserted that North Korea was no longer a nuclear threat, a claim that is "really flat-out misleading". We sell them $100 billion, they sell is $500 billion, we can hurt them more than they will hurt us.

The Trump administration worked for months to win support from China for its "maximum pressure" campaign of sanctions to isolate North Korea, which does most of its worldwide trade with the Chinese.

The lawmaker's comments come one-day after North Korea criticized the USA for their push for denuclearization.

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.

Speaking to reporters in Tokyo, Pompeo insisted that Pyongyang did not have an issue with the idea of complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization despite the North Korean Foreign Ministry singling out the phrase in its statement.

"We talked about what the North Koreans are continuing to do and how it's the case that we can get our arms around achieving what Chairman Kim and President Trump both agreed to", he said.

"There will be things that take place along the way that help achieve the security assurances that the North Koreans need". "We're in a fight with China".
