South Korea hails Kim Jong Un's move to dismantle nuclear test site

South Korea hails Kim Jong Un's move to dismantle nuclear test site

A statement issued during worldwide negotiations with North Korea in 2005 over its nuclear weapons development said the "United States affirmed that it has no nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula and has no intention to attack or invade (North Korea) with nuclear or conventional weapons".

Pompeo spoke about what it was like to meet Kim, whom few Americans have interacted with personally. "This has been the trade-off that has been pending for 25 years", Pompeo said, without specifying any instruments such assurances would be ironclad. Pompeo returned with three freed United States detainees, the latest in the North's diplomatic overtures.

"Our eyes are wide open with respect to the risks, but it is our fervent hope that Chairman Kim wants to make a strategic change", he said.

North Korea's reference to such activity is created to communicate that even without underground testing, the country intends to maintain its nuclear arsenal and be a "responsible" steward of those weapons at the same time, said Andrea Berger, a senior analyst at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.

Pompeo called the negotiations with Kim "warm" and later added that Washington and Pyongyang have a "shared" vision of what the Korean Peninsula will look like after the North's denuclearization is complete.

Trump labeled Kim "Little Rocket Man", and the North Korean leader called the president a "mentally deranged USA dotard". That seems like it can be addressed by restrictions on missile capacity and/or some treaty which eliminates by some definition how much we consider North Korea a "threat".

But in a separate television interview, US National Security Adviser John Bolton cautioned that denuclearization has to be accomplished "before the benefits start to flow".

He said that means the elimination of North Korea uranium enrichment facilities and the dismantling of its nuclear weapons arsenal.

Bolton has previously made hawkish public comments that supported preemptive U.S. attacks on North Korea to counteract the threat of their nuclear arsenal. "It won't be easy to do", Bolton said on ABC's "This Week". "I think there'd a be a lot of support in Congress to give North Korea a better life - provide aid, relieve sanctions - with one condition: that you give up your nuclear weapons program in a verifiable way".

"I don't think the president has stars in his eyes", Bolton said.

He returned again to North Korea last week for a second meeting, after which Kim agreed to the release of the three Americans.

During their meeting at a border truce village, Moon and Kim vaguely promised to work toward the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula, but made no references to verification or timetables.
