US To Help North Korea Upon Nuclear Surrender - Pompeo

Melania Trump and Donald on the White House lawn

In a separate news conference at the State Department, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he told Kim in their meeting Wednesday in Pyongyang that if his country got rid of its nuclear weapons in a permanent and verifiable way, the USA would be willing to help boost its economy.

Kim wants security and Trump wants Kim to get rid of his nukes.

The allure of economic help could be enough for Kim to accept terms to denuclearize, as Pompeo said that there's a chance that North Korea and the US could become "partners", according to the Los Angeles Times. One told reporters that being free was "like a dream; we are very, very happy". We have a month and several days.

Coal is a critical export of the North Korean economy; recent sanctions on the purchase of North Korean coal have reportedly significantly crippled that economy.

"Singapore has a relationship with both the United States and North Korea", Mr Shah told journalists on Thursday aboard Air Force One, which was taking Mr Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence to IN for a public rally.

"It was confirmed that Kim Jong-un didn't attend last week's contest", the source pointed out.

Singapore also has a track record for hosting worldwide summits.

A Japanese newspaper yesterday raised the possibility of Chinese President Xi Jinping also travelling to Singapore on June 12.

"If Chairman Kim chooses the right path, there is a future brimming with peace and prosperity for the North Korean people", Pompeo said, adding that America's "track record of support for the Korean people is second to none".

The talks, which are expected to last a day, are set to focus on North Korea's rapidly advancing nuclear and ballistic weapons programs.

And we must remember Otto Wambier, the young American sentenced to 15 years in a North Korean prison for the crime of taking a government political poster as a souvenir. "Those words are important, but we'll see what they mean". On being asked if anything else was to happen between now and the summit, Shah replied, "I'm not setting additional pre-conditions". They will frame Trump's willingness to meet Kim as a welcome first step along the road to denuclearization; and they will return the gesture with some corresponding concession, such as a freeze on testing nuclear weapons or long-range missiles. "If he can end the standoff that has prevailed since the 1950-53 Korean War, he will have won a place in history that may offer redemption in posterity even if his presidency ends in ignominy", CNN commented. We can offer to end our trade sanctions on North Korea.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in's administration is conducting its own efforts to normalize ties on the divided peninsula and secure lasting peace.

As leaders from the Group of Seven industrialised nations are expected to gather in Canada on June 8 and 9, Abe hopes to hold talks with Trump on the fringes of the summit and coordinate efforts toward resolving issues related to Pyongyang, the sources said.
