Mike Pompeo offers aid to North Korea in exchange for forfeiting nukes

12 May 2018

A Japanese newspaper on Friday raised the possibility of Chinese President Xi Jinping also travelling to Singapore on June 12. In 2015, the leaders of China and Taiwan held historic talks in the South East Asian city-state - their first in more than 60 years.

But before any technical talk about reprocessed fuel rods, separated plutonium or spent fuel removal, Trump will want to answer one basic question - whether North Korea wants to change.

South Korea's presidential Blue House said the prisoners' release would have a "positive effect" on upcoming negotiations.

Mr Will Saetren, research associate at the Institute for China-America Studies, said: "The DMZ already had a historic summit".

The effect of new sanctions against Iran by the United States government however could well impact European Union companies. The deals are now in limbo after US President Donald Trump announced he was pulling his country out of the 2015 agreement.

But White House officials opposed the idea as it could put undue emphasis on South Korea. The North says eight others died, but Japanese officials and their families say that can not be trusted. And there are a number of things - provocative actions, for example, from North Korea would not be received well. "Certainly the best outcome would be an agreement for complete and total denuclearization".

In a statement released by the State Department as the plane carrying them stopped over in Alaska, the three former detainees expressed "deep appreciation to the United States government, President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, and the people of the United States for bringing us home. We are very, very happy". "He, likewise, has been incredibly helpful". "I want victory for the world". As Trump acknowledged in another tweet, the Korea opening was in part facilitated by neighboring China, which joined other members of the UN Security Council in tightening economic sanctions against the Kim regime in spite of Beijing's long trading and political relationship with Pyongyang.

"We have a month and several days".

A North Korean official informed Pompeo that Kim had granted the three "amnesty", according to a senior USA official present for the exchange.

The official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Thursday reported that North Korean leader Kim "warmly greeted" Pompeo on Wednesday and "sincerely congratulated him on his recent official assumption as secretary of state".

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong replied: "The meeting between US President @realDonaldTrump & North Korea leader Kim Jong Un is a significant step on the path to peace".

The American said he had "good" and "substantive" conversations with Mr Kim during his visit. "We ask that you continue to pray for the people of North Korea and for the release of all who are still being held". The two men will shake hands on neutral ground as Trump tries to convince Kim to give up his nuclear weapons, but human rights advocates say the president needs to push for even more. He received a 10-year prison term with hard labor in April 2016 for "perpetrating state subversive plots and espionage against" North Korea.

While Kang sought to assure reporters that the USA and South Korea are unified on the matter, she was slightly more moderate on the possibility of relief, saying sanctions must remain in place "until we see visible, meaningful action taken by North Korea on the denuclearization track". The two leaders are expected to meet sometime in June.
