Japan, S Korea to maintain pressure on North, China urges patience

Foreign Minister to Meet US Counterpart Friday Japan, S Korea to maintain pressure on North, China urges patience

A GREAT deal of hope is riding on the meeting between United States President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un at the end of May. "Most recently in January, the North suddenly canceled the visit of an arts troupe to South Korea", Lee Taek-su, head of Realmeter said.

Both sides can claim credit for the rapid thawing of relations and Trump may suggest that his hard line policy on Pyongyang, including the imposition of severe economic sanctions and his threat to wage a preemptive nuclear attack on North Korea, have vindicated his policies and bore fruit.

As North Korea perfects its intercontinental ballistic missile program - the very effort that has precipitated the current crisis, as it threatens the entire continental USA homeland - critics of the Iran deal say that it allows for Tehran to flawless that same technology, guaranteeing a similar crisis down the line.

There is no rational military "solution" to North Korea's nuclear arsenal. Trump now has the opportunity to achieve what no president has been able to achieve in seven decades of U.S. Tonight's announcement is an encouraging sign, but the president has left the State Department without the full complement of diplomatic personnel necessary for these talks to be successful.

It led to an agreement for Kim to have a summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in next month. -South Korean military exercises.

South Korea National Security Office chief Chung Eui Yong, meanwhile, met Chinese President Xi Jinping yesterday. The Trump-Kim summit is supposed to take place by May. "And then having no intention of doing so even though they were rewarded with hundreds of millions, if not billions, of American tax dollars as incentive to stop their nuclear program", Davis added.

The South Korean officials who carried Kim's invitation to Washington are visiting China and Japan this week to update their neighbours on the talks.

Xi said China looked forward to smooth talks between the two Koreas and between the United States and North Korea and substantive progress in the denuclearization process and normalization of ties. Last year Washington and Pyongyang traded unusually strong threats - North Korea threatened to strike the United States territory of Guam while Trump promised to respond with "fire and fury".

Meanwhile, in New York, US' National Security Advisor HR McMaster and US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, briefed members of the UN Security Council on developments related to North Korea.

"Nothing's been agreed and I don't want to start floating ideas out through the media", Tillerson said in Abuja alongside Foreign Minister Geoffrey Onyeama.

Many people were shocked last week by news of the planned talks between the leaders of the United States and North Korea.

".but, again they - they cannot engage in missile testing, they cannot engage in nuclear testing and they can't publicly object to the U".
