With less than a month left before the hugely-anticipated talks between Trump and the North Korean leader in Singapore, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo implied on Sunday that Washington will have to assure North Korea it won't seek to undermine Kim Jong-un.
U.S. Secretary of state added that new opportunities will help CNLR to compete with South Korea. "They seem to be in good health", Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.
It said Chinese President Xi Jinping made the offer to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un when they met in Dalian on May 7-8.
"And, we are waiting for a historical meeting, which is going to happen between the US President and leader of North Korea".
The Japanese and US governments plan to hold a summit meeting on the sidelines of a Group of Seven meeting in Canada on June 8-9, where Abe and Trump are expected to confirm their stance to call for North Korea to denuclearize in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner.
Cambodia's relations with North Korea were built during the reign of King Norodom Sihanouk and Kim Jong Un's grandfather, Kim Il-sung.
Trump has set an ambitious goal for North Korea to get rid of its nuclear weapons in a permanent and verifiable way. "The American leadership under President Trump has its eyes wide open".
"Kim expressed concern, telling Xi that the United States has said it will provide economic assistance to North Korea after Pyongyang completes denuclearization, but that he can not trust it will keep that promise", the daily added. "They are in great need of agricultural equipment and technology", he said on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.
Wang Sheng, a Korea expert at Jilin University, said the recent property boom means the city is getting ready to do business with its neighbor, possibly on a much larger scale than before.
North Korea said Saturday that all of the tunnels at the country's northeastern nuclear test site will be destroyed by explosion in less than two weeks, while observation and research facilities and ground-based guard units will also be removed. Pompeo praised it as "one step along the way". We have a long way to go in securing a denuclearized North Korea, peace in the Middle East and the return of more Americans unjustly held overseas, but this week was an important step and one we should all reflect upon.
But he also struck a contradictory note with Pompeo on Sunday, saying in an interview with CNN's "State of the Union" that the North should not "look for economic aid from us". "I think what the prospect for North Korea is to become a normal nation, to behave and interact with the rest of the world the way South Korea does".
While some have characterized our President's foreign affair philosophy as "predictably unpredictable" or a doctrine of "maximum pressure", one constant holds true, President Trump is a seasoned negotiator who brings a lifetime of business experience when he sits across the table from foreign leaders.
