United States and North Korea to Hold Talks on 2nd Trump-Kim Summit

United States and North Korea to Hold Talks on 2nd Trump-Kim Summit

Kim Yong Chol, Pyongyang's lead negotiator in denuclearisation talks with the USs, is due to meet Mike Pompeo and could also go to the White House today, a person familiar with the plan said.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean official Kim Yong Chol were expected to meet in the US capital on Friday to discuss a second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"The expression of "enemy" not only encompasses North Korean threats, but also other transnational and nonmilitary threats", the ministry said in a news release about the paper that lays out South Korea's defense and security goals for the next two years.

South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said on Wednesday that if North Korea took concrete steps toward abandoning its weapons programs, Washington could offer a formal end to the 1950-53 Korean War, humanitarian aid or a permanent channel for bilateral dialogue.

Pompeo had planned to meet Kim Yong Chol to discuss a second summit last November, but the meeting was postponed at the last moment. It was flown to Pyongyang and delivered by hand, the source said on Monday night. The AP reminds readers that a similar meeting took place just before the two countries announced the first Trump-Kim summit in March of past year.

Mr. Trump had long expressed a desire for a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

During a previous era of detente in the 2000s, South Korea avoided using the reference, but it revived the term in its defense document after the 2010 attacks by the North.

The North Korean leader is scheduled to travel to the communist-run country for an "official state visit" sometime in February, Reuters news agency reports citing unnamed sources.

Under tension-easing agreements reached after Moon's summit with Kim Jong Un in September, the two Koreas demolished some of their front-line guard posts, established buffer zones along their frontier and demilitarized a shared border village.

CNN's Will Ripley reports that Kim Yong Chol will bring a response from Kim Jong-un to a personal note sent by Trump earlier.

Observers say similar incidents could occur frequently as South Korea's liberal government pushes for deeper exchanges with North Korea.

Discussions focused on how the USA would respond to denuclearization steps proposed by the North.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, North Korea's Kim Yong-chol, vice-chairman of the ruling Workers' Party Central Committee, left for the U.S. capital after transferring in Beijing.

South Korea's largest newspaper, Chosun Ilbo, reported Wednesday that the paintings were purchased from Pyongyang's Mansudae art studio, which is on a United Nations sanctions blacklist.

During his visit to Beijing last week, Kim said that Pyongyang will make efforts for the second summit with the United States leader to achieve results that will be welcomed by the worldwide community.

Since Mr Trump withdrew his war threats and launched talks with Mr Kim Jong Un a year ago, the US-backed sanctions against North Korea's economy remain his strongest bargaining chip. The State Department has repeatedly said it has "no meetings to announce".
