Next summit with Kim 'probably' not in Singapore

Russia seek review of sanctions

I'll roll out the red carpet for Pope in Pyongyang, says Kim Jong‑un

The Pyongyang summit was in part created to help revive nuclear talks between the North and the United States, which were on shaky ground after Trump cancelled Pompeo's visit to the North in late August, citing a lack of progress.

Trump emphasized the rapport he says he's developed with the North Korean leader as they negotiate over USA demands that Kim abandon his country's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

The North Korean leader also said that he will not submit a report of nuclear weapons to the US, in exchange for announcing the end of the Korean War, the source said.

Pompeo echoed Trump's comments when he spoke briefly to reporters during a Tuesday afternoon visit to the White House.

"And while there's still a long way to go and much work to do, we can now see a path to where we'll achieve the ultimate goal, which is the full and final verified denuclearization of North Korea", Pompeo said. His actions have fallen short, however, of Washington's demands for a complete inventory of its weapons and facilities and irreversible steps to give up its nuclear arsenal, which could threaten the United States. "I wouldn't say he made strong expressions".

"The US could prefer a reciprocal approach where each side makes a concession step by step, rather than a comprehensive bargain as we did". "We have a very good relationship with Chairman Kim".

North Korea so far has suspended nuclear and missile tests, freed three American prisoners and dismantled parts of a missile engine facility and tunnel entrances at a nuclear test site.

However, during another rally in West Virginia last week the president said he received "beautiful letters" from the North Korean leader and that they "fell in love".

A large number of South Korean CEOs accompanied Moon last month to Pyongyang, where he and Kim Jong Un agreed to normalize operations at the Kaesong factory park and resume joint tours to the North when possible, voicing optimism the global sanctions could end and allow such projects.

Kang replied "Yes" on Wednesday when a lawmaker asked her whether a Japanese media report was correct that Pompeo had complained strongly about the agreement, which was announced during a summit between the Koreas in Pyongyang last month.

"I'd love to remove them, but we have to get something for doing it", Trump said. More than 10 million North Koreans, almost 40 percent of the population, are undernourished and need humanitarian aid, it said. Seoul's Unification Ministry said Tuesday the water being supplied to the office has been provided to the town's residents as well. "And I think he knows it and I think that's one of the reasons that we're having very successful conversations".
