United States vows to make North Korea rich if it gives up nukes

United States vows to make North Korea rich if it gives up nukes

He was speaking after talks with his South Korean opposite number Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha to coordinate Washington and Seoul's preparations for the historic encounter.

"Normalizing diplomatic relations with Japan is an extremely important step for North Korea to tread a right path in the worldwide community", Abe said on a TV program, stressing he hopes Kim will not be satisfied only with holding talks with the USA and South Korean presidents.

"We had good conversations, conversations that involve deep complex problems, challenges, strategic decisions that chairman Kim has before him", Pompeo said.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's vow came as senior U.S. officials expressed growing optimism ahead of the landmark June 12 summit between Kim and President Donald Trump.

Chief diplomats from the United States and South Korea said Friday that a complete denuclearization by North Korea requires robust verification, and that sanctions against Pyongyang would not be lifted unless it took concrete and further steps toward denuclearization.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the United States is willing to help North Korea with its economy if the North gets rid of its nuclear weapons.

Therefore, she added, any change in the size of the USA forces in the South Korea should not be on the table at the summit.

The United States aspires to have North Korea as a "close partner" and not an enemy, the USA secretary of state has said.

The Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification was signed by South and North Korean leaders, which laid out a peaceful path forward.

"We reaffirmed that our goal is to achieve the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula", she added, promising "air-tight" coordination.

He described his conversations with Kim as "warm" and said both had tried "our best to make sure that we were communicating clearly and had shared understanding about what our mutual objectives were".

To the U.S., that means the North giving up the nuclear weapons it has already built.

"We are very clear that sanctions remain in place until and unless we see visible, meaningful action taken by North Korea on the denuclearisation track", Ms Kang said.

Amid concerns that North Korea will demand the US withdraw its troops from neighbouring South Korea, Ms Kang emphasised that the US military presence there must be "a matter for the US-ROK alliance first and foremost", using an acronym for South Korea's official name, the Republic of Korea.
