USA vows to make North Korea rich if it gives up nukes

Trump set to meet with North Korean leader in Singapore

Mr Pompeo said the goal of talks with North Korea is complete and verifiable denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

Moon Jae-in, the president of South Korea, is pledging to boost cultural exchanges with his country's neighbors to the north.

There was no confirmation on the specific location for the meeting between Kim and Trump although there are several sites in Singapore that can guarantee security protection, including hotels that have experience hosting high-security events, Singapore media and a Singapore government official said.

Shuang has said that China welcomes the positive progress made by the leaders of the DPRK and the United States to prepare for the summit.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday that if North Korea agrees to surrender its nuclear arsenal, Washington will work with Pyongyang to rebuild its tiny economy. "We will both try to make it a very special movement for the World Peace".

Pompeo is himself just back from Pyongyang, after securing the first fruit of the tentative thaw in ties between Washington and Kim's regime - the return of three American detainees.

On Thursday, Trump revealed that the first-ever between a sitting United States president and a North Korean leader will take place in Singapore on June 12. "We began to work through the modalities, how we would achieve that, but I'll leave conversations about that to another time". And he points to North Korea's turnabout from a year ago, when it launched more nuclear tests than at any point in its history, to pausing the program.

Scholars restore pages on sexuality that Anne Frank erased from diary
Anne then attempts to explain sex to an imaginary person, using the information she's learnt from her father, a friend and books. He said these pages were important because they show Frank's first foray into trying to write in a more literary tone.

"But we got, up front, our people home".

"While the North Koreans say that nuclear disarmament should proceed stage by stage, taking into account reciprocal steps and in the absence of a threat from the United States, the U.S. side insists on North Korea's transparent and unconditional denuclearization", the expert noted.

KELEMEN: Yeah. I mean, he spent more time with Kim Jong Un than any other US official for sure.

To the United States, that means the North giving up the nuclear weapons it has already built.

Former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter visited after leaving office.

But, despite the optimism of that moment, all efforts to limit North Korea's nuclear program have so far failed.

To resolve humanitarian issues, the two sides will hold a reunion of families separated across the border around the August 15 Liberation Day, when the Korean Peninsula was liberated from Japanese colonial from 1910-45. "I'm assured we've a shared understanding of the result that the leaders need", Pompeo stated, "actually President Trump and Chairman Kim and I feel President Moon as effectively".
