N Korea recommits to denuclearising Korean peninsula

U.S. President Donald Trump said Friday he expects to receive a "positive letter" from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un soon. "What we want to offer is the economic livelihood of a North Korea that can interact with the global neighbors", she added, cautioning, "It depends on if North Korea's forthcoming to do what they say they're going to do". Last month, Trump cancelled a planned trip by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Pyongyang.

Also on Thursday, South Korean officials reported that Kim wanted to complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula by the end of Trump's term as president.

The next step in nuclear diplomacy is uncertain.

"That was a very positive statement, what he said about me", Trump said.

In April 2017, as tensions with Trump were escalating, Kim paraded a series of missile canisters through Kim Il Sung Square that foreshadowed his later test of a rocket capable of reaching Washington.

Presidential Blue House spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom told reporters at a regular press briefing Seoul hopes the United States will take corresponding measures to the latest inter-Korea developments, Yonhap reported.

Trump had previously hailed his landmark June 12 summit with Kim as a success and said the North Korean nuclear threat was over, despite little evidence to back that assertion.

North Korea said Friday the request to circulate the document "shows full determination" to keep advancing North-South ties.

And it's a case of "you've got mail" for U.S. President Donald Trump.

Pompeo, who is now visiting India, was a tad less enthusiastic.

Pompeo, Mattis hold talks with Indian counterparts
Pompeo and Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj met separately Thursday before joining top defense officials for talks. Known as COMCASA, this deal will allow the two countries to exchange sensitive military information quickly and securely.

In exchange, he suggested, "North Korea would at that time hand over a listing of its nuclear weapons and missiles".

ICBMs, which can reach the USA mainland - potentially carrying a nuclear warhead - are of huge concern internationally.

The United States has 28,500 troops in South Korea and Trump has said in the past it should consider reducing the number unless Seoul shoulders more of the cost. It is also important inside North Korea as a means of boosting national pride and unity.

For a long time, the United States and North Korea were at an apparent impasse, with the U.S. asking for a comprehensive list of North Korea's nuclear facilities, and Pyongyang demanding a formal end to the Korean War.

More than 100,000 people have participated in past games, and in 2007, Guinness World Records said they took the cake as the largest gymnastics display in the world with 100,090 participants.

"He said he would appreciate that such good faith is accepted with good faith", Chung said. What hardware he rolls out - and how much of it - could signal his level of commitment to talks or intent to tweak USA allies. Chung later spoke to Bolton and gave him a "comprehensive report", the NSC official said.

But major problems remain, not least with regard to Washington-Pyongyang relations.

Russian Federation and North Korea share a small border on Putin's nations Pacific coast - with a frontier of just 11 miles.

"The United States shouldn't delay any further an end-of-war declaration, which the US president promised at the Singapore summit", the North's official Rodong Sinmun newspaper said in an editorial.

"Postponing a visit by Xi to Pyongyang is a prudent decision by the Chinese, given both the current political climate around negotiations on trade and with North Korea and Xi's busy schedule this week", Sun wrote in a recent article, noting that since July, the U.S.
