Still a long way to go on North Korea crisis, says Trump

BREAKING: South Korea SUSPENDS propaganda broadcasts aimed at North Korea as tensions ease

The move goes some way towards meeting USA demands for denuclearisation, as Pyongyang and Washington work towards agreement on when and where Kim will meet Trump for historic talks that barely seemed possible just a few months ago.

Mr. Trump's goal is denuclearization of the communist nation, which also has tested intercontinental ballistic missiles and raised threats against the US and its allies.

"Look, this is a great public relations effort by Kim Jong Un". Want to talk about that more now with the chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Bob Corker of Tennessee.

Mr. brief reported the government had "wary confidence" in regards to the North Korea talks, that can be anticipated in another month or two even two. Kim has made no commitment to give up the estimated 60 nuclear bombs and the unknown number of intercontinental ballistic missiles he already has.

Moon must pressure Kim to accept Trump's call for a complete dismantlement of nuclear weapons and pledge to do it within a year.

Mr. Corker said it's important to keep that in mind. "And what are they going to do with their existing nuclear weapons", Nam said. "But, you know, progress can be made, freezing the program, who knows what he's - what his ambitions are as it relates to South Korea".

Some experts meanwhile view the planned summit itself - and the legitimacy a meeting with a sitting U.S. president confers on Kim and his government - as a win for Pyongyang.

President Donald Trump asserted that North Korea has agreed to "denuclearisation" and a halt to testing while the United States had so far conceded "nothing" in return.

Todd suggested that the gains made with regard toward North Korea don't go almost far enough. "So as far as having the meeting, he's also said, 'I can walk away from the table'".

Many North Korea experts greeted Kim's announcement with quick scepticism, noting he signalled no intention of actually disarming, and wondering what concessions the enigmatic leader would now expect from the US.

Yet Pyongyang complained about delayed oil shipments and construction of the reactors, which were never delivered.

"What has the United States gotten yet?" This is very good news for North Korea and the World - big progress! "Gaddafi's a dead man now because he gave up his nuclear weapons".

Mr. Bush then used a mix of threats and promises of aid to try to reel in North Korea, but he came up short.

North Korea testing weapons of mass destruction is a series of events that dates back to when the country fired the Nodong-1 missile into the Sea of Japan (East Sea of Korea), but past year Kim Jong Un ordered the testing and detonation of a thermonuclear weapon, in this case, a hydrogen bomb with the strength of 50 kilotons.

North Korea said on Saturday that it was suspending nuclear and missile tests and scrapping its nuclear test site, and instead pursuing economic growth and peace ahead of the planned summits.

No more test missile launches.

The North criticized the United States of overreacting and launched another long-range rocket in December 2012 that it said successfully delivered a satellite into orbit.

Sen. Tom Cotton, Arkansas Republican and a key Trump ally, said twin pressures from Mr. Trump and Mr. Pompeo have given the USA leverage. I hope we will not - be put into (ph) policy right now is continue to put pressure on until something happens that's productive. "It's better than continued testing, but it's not much better than that", he said on CBS's "Face the Nation".
