North Korea's Kim wants another Trump summit to speed denuclearisation

South North Korea to bid for Olympic Games 2032 North Korea pledges to close down key missile test site

That was the message from South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Thursday during a news conference in Seoul to cap a historic trip to Pyongyang.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he had invited his North Korean counterpart Ri Yong-ho to a meeting in NY, since he would be in the city for the United Nations General Assembly meeting.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said he was told by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that he wants the us secretary of state to come to Pyongyang for nuclear talks. That's great if the resolution is a denuclearized Korean Peninsula, but not so much if the result is a pretend denuclearization from Kim.

The Blue House said Wednesday that Moon was offered several times in the past to climb Mount Paektu from the Chinese side, but declined because he wanted to climb it from the North.

South Korean Defence Minister Song Young-moo and North Korea's Minister of the People's Armed Forces No Kwang Chol signed an agreement that Seoul says is about reducing military tensions along the border.

Kim Jong-un's promise that North Korea will destroy its primary nuclear testing site in exchange for concessions from the US has brought Washington back to the negotiating table.

Both Mr Trump, who has repeatedly spoken of his good relationship with Kim, and the North Korean leader have expressed a desire to meet again, but there are worries among observers about whether Mr Kim is as committed to denuclearisation as he claims.

But Harry Kazianis, director of defence studies at the Washington-based Centre for the National Interest, said the USA could eventually accept North Korea's step-by-step approach to ending its nuclear programme.

Nauert said Washington looked forward to a formal readout of the North-South talks in meetings with the South Koreans next week, which will include one between Trump and Moon on Monday on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly. According to pool reports, almost 1,000 North Korean citizens holding flowers cheered as some 100 members of a military band played.

"The peace treaty will be fulfilled as the final step of complete denuclearization". He didn't indicate in his brief remarks whether the US would be willing to take further steps to encourage North Korean action on denuclearization.

Agreeing to a declaration on ending the Korean War before North Korea has reduced its offensive threat - including the thousands of artillery guns it has trained on USA ally South Korea - is opposed by many who fear that the North is maneuvering to win a withdrawal of the almost 30,000 US forces in the South. -South Korea joint live-fire military exercise, at a training field near the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas in Pocheon, South Korea, April 21, 2017.

The January 2021 completion date was the most specific deadline set in what is expected to be a long process of trying to get the North to end its nuclear program, which may threaten USA allies South Korea and Japan as well as the U.S. homeland.

Is North Korea's timeline denuclearise for real?

In August, Trump said he believed North Korea had taken specific steps towards denuclearisation, indicating his willingness to hold another meeting with Kim.

North Korea now faces worldwide sanctions that limit nearly all of its exports and strongly limit imports from its few trading partners. "Today the North and South chose to remove all threats that can cause war from the entire Korean peninsula".

At the summit, the two Koreas agreed on plans to resume economic cooperation, including working to reconnect rail and road links.

On Wednesday, North Korea said it is "prepared" to "permanently" close down one of its main ballistic missile facilities in the presence of foreign experts.

None of this is to say North Korean denuclearization is an impossibility, or that we may not see advances more dramatic than the liaison office soon. "If there is a grand bargain on the Korean peninsula, it's going to be in the next few weeks".
