Pompeo to head to Seoul after N.Korea visit

Nadia Murad From ISIS Slave To Nobel Laureate

Pompeo tweeted he had "a good trip to Pyongyang" and "continue to make progress on agreements made" at the historic Singapore summit in June. "If Donald Trump gets the Nobel Peace Prize, liberals all over the world would jump out of buildings", Graham laughed.

Lewis dismissed the significance of Kim's offer, saying it is a "nice" gesture but does not represent any progress towards the denuclearisation of North Korea.

Pompeo has denied there's any daylight between him and Trump.

Speaking to Pompeo via an interpreter following the morning's talks, Kim praised their "nice meeting".

Trump has appeared eager to meet Kim again, even though the two sides are seen far from narrowing their differences.

South Korea's President Moon Jae-in met Mr. Pompeo after the top USA diplomat's trip to Pyongyang earlier in the day, which included a meeting with Mr. Kim.

What path forward discussions take is the critical question that many analysts expect to be answered this time.

"We can't rule out the possibility that Washington. may move in the direction of partial easing of sanctions based on progress in denuclearisation", he said.

Since Trump and Kim agreed at the Singapore summit to work toward "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula and to establish a "new relationship", Pyongyang and Washington have wrangled over what these terms mean and how to achieve them. Ri, who in the past has been described by South Korean counterparts as hot tempered, expressed irritation when Cho arrived a few minutes late for the meeting.

America's top diplomat left Tokyo for Pyongyang on Sunday after pledging that the US will coordinate with allies Japan and South Korea on efforts to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons.




"I will certainly tell you in private about our conversation, but we had a good, productive conversation", Pompeo said. On Wednesday, he said there was unanimous support for this at last week's U.N. General Assembly, even if Russian Federation and China "had some ideas about how we might begin to think about a time when it would be appropriate to reduce them".

"The two sides will form working-level negotiation teams to discuss North Korea's denuclearization process and Trump-Kim summit schedule", Yoon said. "South Korean political and defense alliance".

The IAEA said in August it did not find any indication that North Korea had stopped its nuclear activities, adding to doubts about the country's willingness to abandon its arsenal.

"I don't have much to add", Pompeo replied.

But the old dream that had guided so many US negotiators intent on getting the North to abandon all its nukes? "North Korea policy differences", said Bruce Klinger, former CIA Korea deputy mission chief and now a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation.

In contrast with South Korea, whose President Moon Jae-in has been at the forefront of encouraging Trump's rapprochement with the North, Japan has been decidedly cautious, insisting that its interests and concerns be addressed.

The regime's largest trading partners, China and Russian Federation, have been working together to argue for the removal of certain United Nations sanctions because North Korea has not tested a ballistic missile or nuclear device since a year ago.

Japan's foreign minister, Taro Kano, said the accounting continues to be a priority for his country.

"You all have been an incredibly important part of the success that we have all had to date, but what we all hope will be the denuclearization and the change in the relationship here on the peninsula", Pompeo said.

Pompeo later planned stops in South Korea and China to review the negotiations. They have not returned to North Korea since they were expelled in 2009.
