Abe, Trump agree Korean summit positive for denuclearization

'This is beyond the US': Trump paints a stark picture of what happens if he can't solve the North Korea crisis

Kim Jong Un also was quoted as saying that American and South Korean journalists and experts would be invited to monitor the shuttering of the nuclear test site, raising the possibility of a dramatic backdrop for the first-ever U.S. -North Korean summit, which is also expected in coming weeks.

NORTH KOREA will shut its nuclear take a look at web site in Could after Kim Jong-un and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in agreed to rid the peninsula of missiles.

The summit, held on the south side of the DMZ, was filled with such moments, but also allowed enough room for others that perhaps were unscripted, including Kim taking Moon's hand and stepping together with him over the dividing line and, briefly, back into the North. Both leaders announced that Kim will fete Moon in Pyongyang in the fall.

But North Korea for decades has been pushing a concept of "denuclearisation" that bears no resemblance to the US definition, vowing to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes its troops from the Korean Peninsula and the nuclear umbrella defending South Korea and Japan.

Moon and Kim have pledged to seek a formal end to the Korean War, fought from 1950 to 1953, by year's end and to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons.

Japan and the United States consider the inter-Korean summit to be a step toward achieving peace and stability in the North-East Asian region, but will continue to monitor Pyongyang's actions, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Sunday.

Trump touted his ability to achieve a nuclear deal with the regime at a campaign-style rally in Michigan to cheers and chants of "Nobel!"

The rhetoric is impressive and laudable, but denuclearization itself could take a long time.

While it is understandable to be concerned that the negotiations are a bid from North Korea to buy time to develop their nuclear weapons, there is a mountain of evidence that leads me to believe North Korea now has real motivation to end the Korean War rapidly.

South Korea's progressive president wants to use his summit with Kim as a springboard to improve Pyongyang's relations with Tokyo and particularly with Washington.

The danger is that Mr. Moon is following the precedent of the last two inter-Korean summits in 2000 and 2007.

"We're going to negotiate in a different way than has been done before", Pompeo said. The quickest route would be for North Korea to sign an existing treaty that bans all nuclear tests.

"Things are going very well, time and location of meeting with North Korea is being set", Trump tweeted. Kim said, "I came here determined to send a starting signal at the threshold of a new history", he said, promising a "frank, serious and honest mindset".

Mr Kim made the comment during Friday's summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, the spokesman added. Moon told Abe he conveyed Japan's desire to normalize ties with North Korea after they resolve past issues between them.

According to Pompeo, the U.S.' objective remains the "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization" of North Korea. The two countries say they will work towards a permanent peace agreement to be signed sometime later this year.

North Korean hackers have just been linked to a massive worldwide cyberattack meant to steal data about Western critical infrastructure and key industries. In 2010 the North attacked another ship and shelled an island, killing 50 South Koreans.

Researchers at the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, Anhui province, examined the Punggye-ri site and said they "were confident" underground detonations were occurring underneath the mountain, South China Morning Post reported.

The report said the dinner between Kim and Moon proceeded "in an amicable atmosphere overflowing with feelings of blood relatives".
