Jennifer Peltz and Foster Klug Associated Press Published 4:44 PM EDT Sep 29, 2018 United Nations — North Korea needs more trust in the U.S. and their developing relationship before it will get rid of its nuclear weapons, Pyongyang’s top diplomat said Saturday as an envoy from another of the international community’s biggest worries – Syria – demanded that the U.S., France and Turkey withdraw their troops from his civil-war-wracked country. More than three months after a June summit in Singapore between the U.S. and North Korean leaders, Ri Yong Ho told world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly that the North doesn’t see a “corresponding response” from the U.S. to North Korea’s early disarmament moves. Instead, he noted, the U.S. is continuing sanctions aimed at keeping up pressure. “The perception that sanctions can bring us on our knees is a pipe dream of the people who are ignorant of us,” he said, adding … [Read more...] about North Korea says it won’t disarm without trust in U.S.
Catherine Lucey, Matthew Lee, Hyung-Jin Kim and Foster Klug Associated Press Published 3:05 p.m. UTC May 28, 2018 President Donald Trump said Sunday a U.S. team was in North Korea to plan a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, raising expectations that the on-off-on meeting would indeed take place. The State Department said earlier that a team was in Panmunjom, which straddles the border inside the demilitarized zone, or DMZ, separating the North and South Korea. One can cross the border simply by stepping across a painted line, but moving beyond several footsteps into the North at Panmunjom would be rare for U.S. officials. Trump withdrew from a planned June 12 Singapore summit with Kim last Thursday, but quickly announced that it could get back on track. His tweet Sunday afternoon, which offered praise for the longtime U.S. adversary, was the latest signal that his concerns about the North’s stance toward the summit had been allayed. “Our United States team … [Read more...] about Trump: US team in N.

Catherine Lucey, Matthew Lee, Hyung-Jin Kim and Foster Klug Associated Press Published 8:40 p.m. UTC May 27, 2018 An American delegation met with North Korean officials in the Demilitarized Zone on Sunday as planning seemed to move ahead for the on-off-perhaps-on-again summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. South Korea’s president, Moon Jae-in, meanwhile, gave details about his surprise meeting Saturday with Kim in the Panmunjom truce village, saying Kim had committed to sitting down with Trump and to a “complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tapped veteran American diplomat Sung Kim to handle pre-summit negotiations. On a separate but complementary track is the CIA team Pompeo set up last year when he headed the spy agency. And on a third track is a White House logistical group sent to Singapore on Sunday to prepare in case the summit takes place. It was led by Joe Hagin, … [Read more...] about US delegation holds talks with N. Korean officials in DMZ
