Trump Says Kim 'Sees Different Future' for North Korea

  • Korean War

Moon, the son of North Korean war refugees, has vowed to build on the legacies of former Presidents Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun. A prominent advocate for U.S.

The CD is a reference to the nickname - "little rocket man" - that Trump gave Kim past year as the USA and North Korea edged toward nuclear catastrophe.

He downplayed concerns that improved relations will be accompanied by the easing of sanctions and pressure on North Korea, saying that the progress in inter-Korean projects will depend on whether appropriate conditions are created. That would in turn cause major problems for Moon Jae-in whose sky-high approval ratings can in part be attributed to his savvy handling of both Trump and Kim Jong Un.

Pompeo is set to reach Pyongyang on Friday for further talks on denuclearization of the country. The document was the first to be signed by Communist-backed North Korea and Western-backed South Korea since they were split by the Soviet Union and the us after World War II and went to war in the early 1950s.

USA intelligence estimates at that time gave the sub a submerged displacement of 2,000 tons and a beam of 36 feet, making it the largest ship built for the North Korean navy.

But Nauert and other officials said they did not know anything about such a gift, and Pompeo himself laughed off the reports when asked by reporters.

Regarding fears that the USA may have softened its expectations in the denuclearization process, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert - who is accompanying Pompeo to Pyongyang - said their policy had not changed and that they are "committed to a denuclearized North Korea". This is his third trip to North Korea. "The Blue House is not quite sure which side represents President Trump's mind".




Several times past year, Trump referred to Kim "little rocket man", while Kim angrily retorted by labelling the president a "mentally deranged dotard".

Trump, however, has continued to boast of the results of the summit, even in the face of skepticism from some USA lawmakers.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said last month that the United Nations command in South Korea would initially take charge of the transfer of remains - when they occur - and would then turn them over to the custody of the US military. The issues are deeply interlinked. "There is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea".

According to the South Korean newspaper, Mr Trump remembered the conversation and told Mr Pompeo to take a CD with the song for Mr Kim.

Pompeo said he plans to discuss denuclearization as a follow-up to an agreement signed by Trump and Kim during their meeting last month. And just for kicks, Trump agreed to cease military exercises on the Korean peninsula.

North Koreans cheer as they watch a friendly basketball game between South and North players. One poll conducted in early May found that nine out of 10 South Koreans approved of the inter-Korean summit, while the president had an approval rating of 86 percent.

It says pressure will remain until North Korea denuclearises, but in statements this week, it redefined the USA goal as "the final, fully verified denuclearisation" of the country.
