South Koreans Visiting Pyongyang For Summit Anniversary

"We make this trip to Pyongyang in the spirit of the October 4 Declaration", Cho told pool reporters before leaving for the North.

Nuclear diplomacy later stalled due to suspicions over how honest North Korea is about its disarmament pledge, but U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is to visit Pyongyang this month to set up a second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Kim pledged at an unprecedented June 12 meeting with Trump to work toward denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, but his actions have fallen short of Washington's demands for a complete inventory of its nuclear weapons and irreversible steps to give up an arsenal that potentially threatens the United States. They talked about 2021 when they were gathered there.

In the September 19 written statement, Pompeo had announced talks with North Korean officials involving him and newly appointed USA envoy Stephen Biegun.

The joint celebration comes after South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim's third meeting last month, in which they agreed to mark the summit anniversary with "meaningful" events.

Speaking before a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in NY recently, Trump announced that himself and Kim will hold a second summit "in the not too distant future". The invitation came on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly meeting in NY. The two men once exchanged hostilities on social media that some liberal commentators thought would bring about a nuclear holocaust, but now just months later, the two strong world leaders are the best of friends. "There's no nuclear testing and there's not testing of rockets".

Trump's diplomatic overtures are building the trust that will make North Korea feel comfortable with making concessions and joining the rest of us in the 21st century.


Nauert also emphasized on the call for a discussion between the two countries saying that it shows forward progress and momentum that the United Nations secretary is making his fourth trip back in less than a year.She added that it shows the U.S. president's commitment to the agreement that he and Chairman Kim made at the Singapore summit. He said there's continuing worldwide support for economic sanctions to remain on North Korea in the meantime.

In order to build trust, North Korea, he said, appears to want "a transformation of the relationship, and the first step of that would have to be comprehensive sanctions relief".

But other cybersecurity experts tell the Associated Press that they also see continued signs that North Korea's authoritarian government, which has a long track record of criminality to raise cash, is conducting malign activity online.

GOP Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado, chairman of a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee for Asia, supports stiffer economic restrictions on North Korea and countries that trade with it.

"We will never beg the United States to lift sanctions", it said.

Trump, who has sounded optimistic about holding a second summit with Kim, has not ruled out declaring an end to the 1950-1953 war, which concluded only with an armistice.

"Opportunities to engage diplomatically, if they're actually going to be successful, can be warranted, but if there's no sense of progress I should urge the president not to do the meeting", Gardner said.
