North Korea to Hold International Blockchain Conference in October, Report Claims

North Korea will reportedly host its own cryptocurrency and blockchain conference North Korea Greets The Crypto Industry With An International Conference
| 30 August, 2018, 15:04

The White House, in a statement sent on Twitter by Mr Trump, said the US President believes North Korea is under "tremendous pressure" from China but that Beijing also was supplying Pyongyang with "considerable aid", including fuel, fertiliser and commodities.

"As I have said on several occasions, we believe development in the US-North Korea relationship should promote development in the South-North Korean relationship and development in inter-Korean relations must help lead improvements in the US-North Korea relationship", a presidential spokesman added. "This is not helpful!" he said.

Long Guoqiang, deputy director of the Development Research Center of the State Council, wrote: "The trade war is not just a measure for the U.S. to gain more economic benefits, it is also an important strategy to contain China". "If he does, they will be far bigger than ever before", he said.

For its part, North Korea has returned what are believed to be remains of US servicemen from the Korean War.

"Our military posture has not changed since the conclusion of the Singapore summit, and no decisions have been made about suspending any future exercises", Mattis said.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in is expected to travel to Pyongyang in September for a third summit with his North Korean counterpart.

However, relations with North Korea have recently stalled.

"There are subjects and fields that aren't impacted by sanctions", said Kim Yong Il, North Korea's chief delegate at UNESCO in Paris, according to a previously unreported transcript of his remarks. "North Korea was under threat from the United States until the day it tested the ability to deliver a nuclear weapon to the United States".

"I have asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo not to go to North Korea, at this time, because I feel we are not making sufficient progress with respect to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", Trump tweeted.


Kim Jong Un publicly expressed admiration for South Korea's railways during a summit in April.

If North Korea was listening, it heard a warning shot about those joint US-South Korean military exercises it says are so provocative. A joint Chinese project to build hydro power stations in North Korea's border region, as well as Russia's rail project to transport Russian coal to a North Korean port have both received United Nations sanction exemptions.

Mattis' announcement seemed to indicate the US government is taking a harder line on North Korea, but he clarified that USA officials have not yet decided whether to proceed with next year's Ulchi Freedom Guardian or other training events, such as Foal Eagle.

"There are ongoing exercises all the time on the peninsula", Mattis said.

Reports suggest that North Korea will be hosting a two-day worldwide blockchain conference in its capital Pyongyang later this year.

President Trump suspended large joint U.S.

Suh Hoon, director of South Korea's National Intelligence Service, told a closed-door parliamentary hearing Tuesday that Pompeo's trip was canceled over the competing demands from the two sides. South Korean officials weren't permitted to cross the demilitarised zone on August 24.

In an attempt to showcase their supposed technological prowess, North Korea will be holding a blockchain and cryptocurrency conference later this year.

North Korea consistently complains that large-scale annual joint exercises, which usually take place in the spring and summer, are preparations to invade.
