North Korean delegation visits China

Abe seeks Trump visit after Kim talks

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un (L) and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in (R) exchange documents during a signing ceremony near the end of their historic summit at the truce village of Panmunjom on April 27, 2018. His remarks came after he visited Pyongyang for a second time last week, and had last-minute negotiations with Kim to set the time and place for the first summit between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

A former top North Korean official believes North Korea will not agree to a U.S. request for a "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization". "We hope that the sound of dynamite blowing up the Punggye-ri tunnels will be a gun salute in a journey toward a Korean Peninsula free of nuclear weapons", Seoul's presidential spokesperson said.

Xi's offer "may have led to Kim's judgement on denuclearization" when he met with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Pyongyang after his China trip, according to the Yomiuri. "He will never give them up", Thae continued. Pompeo also promised not to seek regime change in the North.

Some experts and officials speculate that Washington and Pyongyang have agreed in principle to the North's full denuclearization in return for security guarantees for the Kim regime.

The US and its allies have focused on the subject of denuclearization following North Korea's nuclear and missile tests in 2017, a fact the regime knows all too well and will use to leverage its position accordingly.

A move like denuclearisation would conflict the integral power structure of North Korea, Thae added.

North Korea has scheduled the dismantling of the nuclear site between May 23 and 25. The meeting would be the first time a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader would meet, and comes after Kim held a summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April.

Bolton appeared on Sunday talk shows, during which the June 12 meeting between Trump and the North Korean leader dominated the proceedings.
