U.S. backs disarmament steps along Korean demilitarized zone

U.S. backs disarmament steps along Korean demilitarized zone

About 100 South Koreans, including Hyundai Group chairwoman Hyun Jeong-eun, will cross the heavily fortified border into North Korea on November 18 for the ceremony before returning home the next day, Hyundai Asan spokesman Lee Jae-hee said.

Pompeo emphasized in both television appearances that there have been no missile or nuclear tests since the summit in Singapore, and remains of U.S. troops killed during the Korean War have been returned.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday, November 4, he will meet this week in NY with North Korea's number two, Kim Yong-chol, to resume denuclearization talks.

Kim said if the North Korean leader does visit the South, he should also visit South Korea's national cemetery and "apologize" to the families of the victims of the Cheonan warship sinking.

As you know, joint military exercises and exchange programs between the United States and South Korea have been frozen indefinitely in June of this year at the summit between Donald trump and Kim Jong-UN.

In Washington last week, South Korea's defence minister said the two countries would decide by December on major joint military exercises for 2019.

However, administration critics have been quick to point out that Mr. Kim and the regime in the North have leveraged Mr. Trump's efforts to engage with Pyongyang to earn legitimacy in the global community, while harboring no real intention to follow through on major US initiatives, such as denuclearization on the Korean peninsula. There have been no nuclear tests. "There've been no nuclear tests, We've had the returns of American remains (from the Korean War of the early 1950s)".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in, meanwhile, has forged ahead with efforts to engage with North Korea in recent months, raising US concerns that Seoul could weaken pressure on North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons.

Also on Sunday, Pompeo told CBS's "Face the Nation" that he will meet with Kim Yong Chol.

Pompeo also confirmed that the DPRK will not see any USA economic sanctions lifted until it has demonstrated complete denuclearization. "What remains to be done is the United States corresponding reply", it added.

"We believe we should look for mechanisms that would allow us to continue developing cooperation with our partners, with Iran", Mr. Novak said in an interview with the Financial Times.

The first-ever DPRK-U.S. summit was held in Singapore on June 12.
