Pompeo: US will help North Korea achieve prosperity in return for disarming

Melania Trump and Donald

Pompeo's arrival in Pyongyang Wednesday coincided with a trilateral summit in Tokyo between Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and South Korean President Moon Jae-in to discuss the escalating diplomatic rapport between North and South Korea, highlighted by last month's historic summit between Moon and Kim at the Demilitarized Zone separating the two rivals.

"We hope this meeting will advance prospects for peace in the Korean Peninsula", the ministry added.

Meanwhile, US media commented that if Trump is successful in convincing Kim to agree to a verifiable eradication of his nuclear weapons program - a huge if - Trump will have achieved a breakthrough that has eluded previous presidents.

"Singapore has a relationship with both the United States and North Korea".

"We had good conversations, conversations that involve deep complex problems, challenges, strategic decisions that chairman Kim has before him", Pompeo said. CBS News referring to the sources stated that the leaders of the USA and North Korea are choosing the place of a bilateral meeting - it will be either Mongolia or Singapore.

North Korea's development of nuclear weapons and missiles capable of reaching the United States brought exchanges of bellicose rhetoric between Mr Trump and Mr Kim past year that raised fears of a new war on the Korean peninsula.

He said its policy was now "to concentrate all efforts into economic progress", but stressed that this had nothing to do with global sanctions imposed on the country.

"We are very clear that sanctions remain in place until and unless we see visible, meaningful action taken by North Korea on the denuclearization track", she said at the same news conference.

Pompeo said U.S. 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".

Pompeo said the complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula would require a "robust verification" program by the United States and other countries. "We talked about the fact that America has often in history had adversaries who we are now close partners with and our hope that we can achieve the same with respect to North Korea".

Pompeo spoke after coming out of talks with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha.

Abe is expected to ask Trump to push North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to address the long-standing issue of Japanese nationals abducted by North Korean agents in the 1970s and 1980s, the sources said.

Pence said Thursday on NBC News, "In this moment the regime in North Korea has been dealing, as far as we can see, in good faith".

It has one foot in the East and one in the West, is ultra-modern, secure and sometimes mocked as being a little tiresome - Singapore was the safe pick for a historic first meeting between the unpredictable leaders of the U.S. and North Korea. "They can ensure both the President's and Kim Jong-un's security, as well as provide neutrality", he added.
