Pompeo: North Korea needs US security assurances for nuke pact

Dr. Martin Kang Joseph Shin

The analysis was made public before North Korea holds a ceremony for dismantling the Punggye-ri site between May 23 and May 25, depending on weather conditions, in the presence of worldwide media.

Pompeo spoke about what it was like to meet Kim, whom few Americans have interacted with personally.

"We will have to provide security assurances to be sure". "This has been the trade-off that has been pending for 25 years".

President Donald Trump applauds as United States detainee Kim Dong-chul gestures upon his return with Kim Hak-song and Tony Kim after they were freed by North Korea, at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on May 10, 2018.

"Our eyes are wide open with respect to the risks, but it is our fervent hope that Chairman Kim wants to make a strategic change", he said. Most notably he seems to be focused now on eliminating the nuclear threat to the United States rather than North Korea's nuclear weapons in general.

Pompeo called the negotiations with Kim "warm" and later added that Washington and Pyongyang have a "shared" vision of what the Korean Peninsula will look like after the North's denuclearization is complete.

Kim pledged to close the complex after his historic meeting with South Korean president Moon Jae-in, saying North Korea no longer needed the site.

Trump Will Meet North Korea's Kim In Singapore In June
President Trump on Thursday welcomed home three American citizens who had been held hostage in North Korea. Such a move might force the U.S. to halt the meeting, a presidential spokesperson said on Thursday.

Kim expressed concern, telling Xi that the United States has said it will provide economic assistance to North Korea after Pyongyang completes denuclearization, but that he can not trust it will keep that promise.

North Korea for decades has been pushing a concept of "denuclearization" that bears no resemblance to the American definition.

The North also is widely believed to have as many as 60 nuclear weapons and production facilities that were not affected. "It won't be easy to do", he said. The president later said it was a "great honor" to welcome the former detainees home, but said "the true honor is going to be if we have a victory in getting rid of nuclear weapons". In June 2008, global broadcasters were allowed to show the demolishing of a cooling tower at the Nyongbyon reactor site, a year after the North reached an agreement with the US and four other nations to disable its nuclear facilities in return for an aid package worth about $400 million.

"I don't think the president has stars in his eyes", Bolton said.

During Xi and Kim's meeting in Dalian, China, on May 7 and 8, Kim sounded Xi out regarding the possibility that North Korea could receive economic support from China during the denuclearization process, according to the source.

Moon and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met on April 27 in the border village of Panmunjom.
