Pompeo promises North Korea future 'brimming with prosperity' if it denuclearises

Pompeo promises North Korea future 'brimming with prosperity' if it denuclearises

"On behalf of the American people, WELCOME HOME!"

The secretary of state addressed concerns that the US and North Korea have different objectives in mind when considering denuclearization, prompting doubts that the Kim regime will actually be willing to give up the weapons it has already built.

US President Trump announced on May 8 that the US was withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPOA) - the deal that restricted Tehran's nuclear developments in exchange for lifting UN Security Council sanctions and unilateral restrictive measures that had been imposed by the United States and the European Union.

After months of fiery rhetoric and increasingly strong global sanctions, Trump and Kim are set to meet in Singapore on June 12 to discuss denuclearization.

He said he thinks he and Kim had a pretty good understanding between their countries about what the shared objectives of the upcoming US-North Korea summit are. "I really think he wants to do something and bring that country into the real world", he said of Kim.

"We're not talking about sanctions relief at this point", Kang said.

Asked if he might visit Pyongyang himself in the future, Trump said it "could happen".

The good news is that his probation ends tomorrow. "I haven't really thought about what I'm going to do tomorrow", he continued. Blankenship said McConnell has created jobs for "China people" and that his "China family" has given him millions of dollars.

Any deal will also "require a robust verification program", Pompeo said, although it's hard to underscore how difficult that process would be.

Kim Dong Chul was sentenced to 10 years hard labor in 2016 on charges he conducted espionage for South Korea.

The homecoming event was broadcast live on cable news networks, and the men were greeted by a large American flag strung between two fire trucks parked on the tarmac.

"If Chairman Kim chooses the right path, there is a future brimming with peace and prosperity for the North Korean people", he said, adding that the United States had a track record of support for the Korean people that was "second to none".

Interested in North Korea? He even defended Kim when a reporter asked about his rationality, calling the question "undignified" and noting they had "conversations that involve deep, complex problems, challenges the strategic decision that Chairman Kim has before him".

Seoul had previously said it sufficiently confirmed the women's free will in escaping from the North and resettling in the South. North Korea has accused South Korea of abducting the 12 women who were working in China and demanded their return.

After meeting Trump and Pence the former detainees boarded a bus to travel to Walter Reed military hospital in Bethesda, Maryland for evaluation and any treatment. "For now, I can only say there's a need to confirm whether these claims are true".
