US Secretary of State Returns to North Korea for Nuclear Talks

US Secretary of State Returns to North Korea for Nuclear Talks

Pompeo told CNN late last month that he would not set a deadline for the denuclearization of North Korea and would "constantly reassess" whether enough progress is being made to continue negotiations.

But it's still unclear whether Pyongyang would agree to that.

In the weeks following the Trump-Kim meeting, speculation - especially in the USA media - has been mounting over whether North Korea truly intends to denuclearize and what exactly the process of denuclearization would look like.

Kim asked Xi to help ease the sanctions that have crippled North Korea's economy, and urged China to back Pyongyang in its denuclearisation talks with Washington, the report said.

"Ambassador Kim had a meeting just yesterday with members of the North Korean delegation, and Secretary Pompeo will be headed to North Korea later this week", she said.

The Washington Post reported Saturday that us intelligence officials had concluded that North Korea did not intend to fully give up its nuclear arsenal and is considering ways to hide the number of weapons it has. Such missiles are more concerning to USA military planners because they can be kept hidden while fueled, making them easier to deploy and harder to target during any attack. He said North Korea is increasing its production of nuclear materials at both secret and known centers.

People watch a TV news program showing a file image of a missile launch conducted by North Korea, at the Seoul Railway Station in Seoul, South Korea, May 14, 2017. They say any solid deal will require Kim to be completely transparent about his program - at a time when intelligence reports suggest he will try to deceive the United States about the extent of his covert weapons or facilities.


He added: "They know the schedule of satellites going over North Korea". A lot of work is left to be done certainly.

Trump recently declared "there is no longer a nuclear threat" from Pyongyang, due to his "great success" negotiating with North Korea's leader.

The talks focused on taking the next step in carrying out the declaration signed by Trump and Kim during the Singapore summit on June 12.

Pompeo has already visited Pyongyang twice since April to meet with Kim - the first time when he was still director of the Central Intelligence Agency - and there are discussions about a possible third trip to North Korea late next week but such a visit has not yet been confirmed.

The State Department's refusal to specify a timeframe could be meant to lower expectations for the outcome of Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang, experts say. Only global inspectors, allowed inside the facilities by mutual agreement, could do that.

During his annual new year's speech, the North Korean dictator ordered his country's missile and nuclear weapons research sectors to mass produce ballistic missiles.
