Kim Jong Un Wants to Sign Peace Treaty With Trump, Report Says

Mao-Nixon

The South Korean officials who carried Kim's invitation to Washington will visit the leaders of China and Japan this week to update them on the talks.

The North Korean leader's final goal is to sign a peace agreement with the United States and establish diplomatic ties, possibly including the opening of a USA embassy in Pyongyang, according to the newspaper.

People watched a TV screen showing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump at the Seoul Railway Station in Seoul, South Korea.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said the US would also continue its military exercises on the Korean Peninsula and he expects Pyongyang to halt its nuclear and missile testing.

North Korea apparently wants to ease the negative impact of the death of American student Otto Warmbier, who was returned to the U.S.in a coma in June a year ago after 17 months in detention and died six days later. However, Pompeo says that the USA government's eyes are "wide open" with regards to the dangers and risks of the North Korea meeting. The possible summit would also take place as the North snaps off regular weapons tests in a dogged march toward its goal of a viable nuclear arsenal that can threaten the USA mainland.

Attempts to negotiate aid-for-disarmament deals have failed repeatedly since 2003, when the North pulled out of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Republican Senator Cory Gardner told CBS he wanted "concrete, verifiable steps toward denuclearisation" before the talks take place.

Pompeo and Mnuchin said the United States will make no concessions and will continue to push economic sanctions against Pyongyang before the meeting.

The whiplash development could put two leaders who've repeatedly insulted, threatened and dismissed each other in the same room, possibly in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang.

Pompeo, who has secured a bond with Trump in part by reliably praising him in public, implied that Trump's often personal attacks on Kim were among those pressure points, saying on CBS News' Face the Nation that USA intelligence officials had briefed Trump on how Kim "might react and how North Korea might respond".

Three Americans remain detained in North Korea.
Many Democrats as well as Trump's fellow Republicans said the USA should have demanded concessions before granting North Korea a meeting.

"We don't have an announcement right now, but we have accepted this offer and we hope that it can be the part of an important breakthrough", Shah said.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have urged the administration to remain skeptical of Kim's motivation to talk, although congressional Republicans credited Trump for a pressure campaign against Pyongyang that brought the regime to the discussions. "So the president is going to sit down and see if he can cut a deal", he said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

"So it's the first". I think they want to make peace. In two months or sooner it's going to happen.
