US, North Korea to hold talks on second Trump-Kim summit

April FrancisJan 19, 2019

Senior officials from the USA and North Korea are meeting in Washington sometime later this week, South Korean media reported on Tuesday.

The Washington Post reports. if the high-level talks go well between Kim Yong-chol and Mike Pompeo, U.S. officials are expecting Choe Son-hui and U.S. nuclear envoy Stephen Biegun to meet for the first time in Sweden. But on a visit to Beijing last week, he said North Korea would pursue a second summit "to achieve results that will be welcomed by the global community", according to China's official Xinhua News Agency.

In the recent bilateral working-level talks in Singapore, the South Korean side said the country can engage in a flight at a threateningly low altitude if Japan does so, according to the South Korean newspaper.

Pompeo had planned to meet his North Korean counterpart to discuss a second summit last November, but the meeting was postponed at the last moment.

He reportedly has another letter from leader Kim Jong-un to Mr Trump.

Speculation is mounting that a second meeting between Mr Kim and Mr Trump could be held in Vietnam.

And South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said on Wednesday that the country was discussing "corresponding measures" with the U.S. to reward North Korea's steps towards denuclearisation.

Hours before Kim Yong Chol's arrival, Trump - who declared the day after the 12 June Singapore summit that the nuclear threat posed by North Korea was over - unveiled a revamped United States missile defence strategy that singled out the country as an ongoing and "extraordinary threat". Chol last visited the White House on June 1.

However, some argue that Thursday's Pentagon assessment indicates the United States will need to do more than shore up its missile defense in addressing the threat posed by North Korea.

Kim is a former North Korean spymaster, who is now one of the country's top negotiators.

South Korean officials said Wednesday they have stopped businessmen from bringing North Korean paintings into the country that a report said were purchased at an art studio under United Nations sanctions.

But Kim Jong Un also warned the communist state may be forced to seek "a new way" if Washington continues to press with economic sanctions aimed at punishing the regime for its nuclear weapons development.

The U.S. embassy in Seoul referred questions to the White House.

Interested in North Korea?

"Suh frequently travels to the USA", the source said. Diplomatic sources speculate that the US and North Korea may even have reached some sort of agreement through intelligence channels. -North Korea talks as saying that Kim Yong Chol would be carrying a new letter from Kim Jong Un to Trump.

Experts said the meeting suggested a diplomatic shift by Seoul to include China from the beginning of the peace process, after it appeared previous year Beijing would be sidelined entirely from the negotiations.

On Wednesday, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence acknowledged that efforts to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear arsenal had not made headway.
