North Korea seeks end of Korean War

North Korea seeks end of Korean War

A day after his Singapore summit last month with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un calling for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, Trump said in a tweet, "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

After talks between the USA and North Korea hit a speed bump earlier this month, the North Korean foreign ministry signaled that it may halt negotiations pertaining to its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile development programs. Kim unilaterally announced a moratorium on long-range missile launches, pleasing Trump, but has pointedly said nothing about the mid-range missiles that concern Japan the most. But the Fake News is saying, without ever asking me (always anonymous sources), that I am angry because it is not going fast enough.

In a joint declaration after his historic summit with Trump on June 12 in Singapore, the North Korean leader "reaffirmed his commitment" to work towards the "denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Regarding her recent trip to the United States, Kang also stressed the importance of communication between Seoul and Washington to ensure that the inter-Korean talks run parallel to the North Korea-U.S. dialogue.

The US is also concerned over North's working on hiding key parts of its nuclear programme while maintaining a missile facility which Trump said would be dismantled, the report added.

His rosy assertions were mocked by Democrats, who argued that little had changed and suggested the president was naive for thinking a regime with a history of delay and obfuscation would change its practices.

"Leaving another US official standing at the altar, waiting forlornly for the North Korean representative to show up adds insult to injury", said Bruce Klingner, a North Korea scholar at the conservative Heritage Foundation.

"We're letting up on sanctions.so, of course, the North Koreans think that they can get away with murder".

A report in The Washington Post at the weekend said that in spite of positive assessments Trump has given on progress with North Korea, he has vented anger at aides over a lack of immediate progress. "We have to see some sort of action", said Haley.

On reasons for suing, the family members said Kim has decried their search to find the truth as "pro-North Korean" several times on conservative cable channels and Internet news media while refusing to meet them.

"Simply a photograph, of Kim with Trump, by the flag of the United States, is a major propaganda boost for the Kim regime", King said.

Observers say the North apparently wants to gain the South's support in the negotiations with the USA, as the 65th anniversary of the armistice agreement on Friday approaches.
