U.S. vows to make North Korea rich if it gives up nukes

U.S. vows to make North Korea rich if it gives up nukes

"Normalizing diplomatic relations with Japan is an extremely important step for North Korea to tread a right path in the global community", Abe said on a TV program, stressing he hopes Kim will not be satisfied only with holding talks with the us and South Korean presidents.

So far, the North Korean regime has made vague pledges to "denuclearize" but has not spelled out what that means, when it would happen or how it would be implemented.

In spite of an easing of tensions and a return to dialogue in recent months, North Korea has given no indication that it is willing to go beyond statements of broad support the for concept of denuclearisation and unilaterally abandon a nuclear weapons program its ruling family has seen as crucial to its survival.

Japan's prime minister on Friday warned North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that Japan will not provide major economic assistance unless the North resolves the issue of Japanese citizens it abducted decades ago.

President Donald Trump speaks as he stands with Tony Kim, second left, Kim Dong Chul, center right, and Kim Hak Song, right, three Americans detained in North Korea for more than a year, after they arrived at Andrews Air Force Base in Md., May 10, 2018.

North Korea's former spy chief Kim Yong Chul, director of the country's United Front Department, boasted in a toast to Pompeo over lunch in Pyongyang on Wednesday that North Korea had "perfected" it nuclear capability.

"This policy is extremely counterproductive and can undermine the progress achieved on this track recently", the statement said.

The attack came shortly ahead of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, which begins around May 16. The suspects then attacked three people before setting some of the mosque's rooms alight.

Kang says there must be "airtight" coordination between South Korea and the USA ahead of President Donald Trump's upcoming meeting with Kim.

Pompeo said US aim was clear - "to ensure that North Korean doesn't possess the capacity to threaten, not only the United States but the world, with nuclear weapons". "I hope Mr. Trump will make a breakthrough to achieve our goals".

"We had good conversations about the histories of our two nations, the challenges that we have had between us", Mr Pompeo told reporters at a news conference with South Korea's visiting foreign minister Kang Kyung-wha.

Therefore, she added, any change in the size of the United States forces in the South Korea should not be on the table at the summit.

Pompeo, who held talks Pyongyang's young leader over the weekend, even said "we have a pretty good understanding between our two countries about what the shared objectives are".

USA officials had called for North Korea to take bold actions and concrete steps toward denuclearization.
