U.S. Wants N.Korea Freeze as Beginning, Not End, of Denuclearization

Xi urged Trump to ease N. Korea sanctions – Beijing

Though it lacked substance, the impromptu meeting was the first between Trump and Kim since their second summit in Vietnam in February collapsed without any agreement due to squabbling over USA -led sanctions on the North, and the two leaders agreed to resume working-level nuclear talks.

The sanctions would snap back into place if North Korea failed to meet its side of the bargain, Yonhap added.

Trump walked away from his previous round of talks with Kim after the North Korea leader sought the removal of all United Nations sanctions passed in 2016 and 2017 in exchange for dismantling Yongbyon.

"The White House, when working-level talks begin, wants to set the conditions whereby they can begin the process of North Korea's denuclearization", the Trump administration source told Yonhap.

The paper said that establishing new relations between the North and the USA and building lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula is anything but a "gift" to Pyongyang, adding Washington should do its own part, such as by making efforts to remove its nuclear threats against the North.

North Korea's Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile is capable of hitting anywhere inside the continental United States in the event of war, US Forces Korea has confirmed in its 2019 Strategic Digest command publication.

The paper blamed USA working-level negotiators for the summit breakdown and emphasized that they should come forward with the right method with the right attitude in light of the changed mood demonstrated by their leader's recent handshake, to which the North will take corresponding goodwill steps.

"You have a man that was so happy to see me". Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said on Tuesday "the contacts and the discussions are ongoing" with North Korea but offered no details.

The two leaders promised to seek denuclearization in exchange for security and sanctions relief and made some good faith measures, but both sides expressed frustration with the slow pace of progress in the following months.

"President Xi elaborated on China's principled position on the Peninsula issue during his meeting with President Trump in Osaka", Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said at a regular press briefing in the Chinese capital. That's a good thing, not a bad thing.

North Korea has been seeking concessions such as sanctions relief in exchange for steps it takes toward dismantling its nuclear capabilities, while the United States has continued to hold onto a "maximum pressure" strategy that calls for complete denuclearization first.

"There is no mix of economic, diplomatic or military pressure that can verifiably eliminate North Korea's arsenal on acceptable terms in the next few years", read the report, which was produced by a study group on North Korean policy at the Washington, D.C. -based think tank.
