Trump thanks North Korea's Kim, says 'we will get it done together'

President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong UN right to advertise upcoming Seoul Defense Dialogue in Seoul South Korea Wednesday Sept. 5 2018. A South Korean presidential delegation met with North

Speaking Thursday in India, Pompeo said the us will continue to work with North Korea to "deliver for the world" in upholding U.N. Security Council resolutions against its nuclear and missile programs, and the commitment Kim made at his June summit with Trump on denuclearization.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un still has faith in US President Donald Trump's commitment to ending their nations' hostile relations, but he's frustrated by questions about his willingness to denuclearise and wants his "goodwill measures" to be met in kind, South Korean officials said Thursday. His reported commitment to a nuclear-free Korea, for instance, wasn't new information Mr. Kim has repeatedly declared similar intentions before but it allows hopes to rise that negotiators can get back on track after the recriminations that followed Mr. Kim's meeting in June with Mr. Trump in Singapore.

The North Korean leader said it was his country's "fixed stand and his will to completely remove the danger of armed conflict and horror of war from the Korean peninsula and turn it into a cradle of peace without nuclear weapons and free from nuclear threat", North's state news agency KCNA reported.

Kim and Trump held a landmark summit in Singapore in June, in which they agreed to work toward complete denuclearization. Chung said there was no discussion with Kim about rescheduling that trip.

The team brings with them, details including date, venue and topics for the hotly anticipated inter-Korean summit.

It comes despite an impasse in talks between the United States and North Korea, with a planned visit by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo canceled last month.

The visit by the South Korean delegation to Pyongyang came amid a deadlock on the North's nuclear weapons programme, with U.S. efforts to dismantle the arsenal stalled for weeks.

To which Trump tweet-simpered in response, "Thank you to Chairman Kim".

Chung and Suh Hoon, the director of South Korea's National Intelligence Service, traveled last week to Pyongyang to lay groundwork for the third meeting between Kim and South's President Moon Jae-in.


In New Delhi Thursday, Secretary of State Pompeo, the former U.S. intelligence chief who heads the USA negotiating effort, struck a sober note, saying there is still much work to do.

"It is the case that there is still an enormous amount of work to do". Professor Yang Moo-jin of the University of North Korean Studies said Kim sees the USA agreeing to a formal end to the war as a "litmus test" to determine whether Washington is honest in moving forward.

Pompeo declined to comment Thursday on what the next steps are for US diplomacy with North Korea.

"North Korea needs the declaration of the end of the war to convince its own officials of denuclearization", Koh said.

Mr Chung also cited Mr Kim as saying that North Korea is unable to conduct any more nuclear tests, despite several reports that the regime is secretly continuing its nuclear programme.

Another professor, Kim Joon-hyung of Handong University, found it significant that Kim did not link his Korean War peace treaty proposal to the removal of US troops from the Korean peninsula.

US officials have previously said they have already made concessions, such as halting joint military exercises with South Korea.

And he asked for a message to be delivered to Trump.
