Trump treats Kim to a Rocket Man CD amid nuclear talks

When Secretary of State Mike Pompeo meets with Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang this weekend, he'll come bearing gifts.

Pompeo arrives in Pyongyang on Friday for a two-day visit.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo began his third trip to Pyongyang on Friday, where he is expected to hold talks on nuclear issues with DPRK leader Kim Jong Un and other senior officials. Lee, who plans to bring two or three North Korean players to the Asian Games, said he was impressed with "No. 9 and No. 7 on Team Peace, " referring to North Korea's Ri Jong Ok and Jang Mi Kyong.

Despite reports that North Korea has actually continued to expand facilities related to the nuclear programs during the weeks since the Singapore summit, Mr. Trump has remained upbeat about the prospects for a breakthrough.

As for reported government leaks about North Korea's intention to denuclearize, Morell said, "I would imagine that there is some concern among officials, particularly on the policy side, that the president will only negotiate on what Kim and the North Koreans have before acknowledged to the International Atomic Energy Agency, right, acknowledged to the international community".

"We can't have madmen out there shooting rockets all over the place", Trump said at the rally in Huntsville, Alabama.

Prosperity and Peace teams formed with a mixture of North and South Korean women players play at a gym in Pyongyang, North Korea.

It was also unclear how much progress Pyongyang has made in its efforts to build the submarine.

Pompeo would try to agree on at least an initial list of nuclear sites and an inventory that could be checked against the available intelligence, US intelligence officials told Reuters.

Pompeo is expected to discuss the return of the remains of US soldiers killed during the 1950-53 Korean War.

When Trump asked Kim if he knew the song, released in 1972, the 35-year-old said he did not.

This does indeed fir with what some other officials have said of Kim's priorities, including North Korean state media.

"If they're serious, then we can get down to the business of defining the terms of final denuclearisation", said one official. "If that's not true we'll go back to the other way".

Trump softened his approach to denuclearization since the summit.

Mr Pompeo is therefore under pressure to produce evidence Pyongyang is taking steps towards ending its programme. "Contrary to our military's suspension of joint Korea-U.S. military exercises, North Korea is conducting military exercises on a scale similar to previous years". The U.S. State Department furtively shifted its insistence on a complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization (CVID) to a finally, fully-verified denuclearization (FFVD) after the North bristled against the former approach.

"Good to have the press along for the trip", he added.

Pompeo's talks, which resume on Saturday, will be closely watched in the region.

North Korea has said it will not comply with Tokyo's demand for a resolution of the issue of Japanese citizens abducted by the North decades ago unless Japan lifts unilateral economic sanctions, sources close to bilateral ties said Thursday.
