US, North Korean negotiators to meet again before Vietnam summit

North Korea has yet to provide any official confirmation of the summit and Kim Jong Un appeared to make no mention of it during a meeting earlier with the top brass of the Korean People's Army.

"There is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea". "North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, will become a great Economic Powerhouse".

The president predicted North Korea could become an "Economic Powerhouse", one that becomes "a different kind of Rocket - an Economic one!"

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a press conference that the government hopes that agreements between Trump and Kim in June, including North Korea's commitment to working toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, will be fully and swiftly implemented.

Some media have been reporting the likely venue of the summit as the central Vietnamese city of Danang, which hosted the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation leaders meeting in 2017.

The sources cited information from North Korean diplomat Choe Kang Il, a deputy director-general for North American affairs at North Korea's Foreign Ministry.

North Korea did not test any ballistic missiles in 2018, but intelligence shows that some North Korea nuclear testing sites are still functional, although not now in use.

Biegun said last week his Pyongyang talks would be aimed at mapping out "a set of concrete deliverables" for the second summit.

There's also a possibility that the leaders will reach a deal to cancel or postpone the drills in the meeting scheduled to take place in Vietnam from February 27-28.

Pyongyang has yet to take concrete steps in that direction, observers have said, and nuclear talks had been effectively deadlocked in the months after the Singapore summit.

Discussions on declaring an end to the 1950-53 Korean War could also have been on the table, with Biegun last week saying Trump was "ready to end this war".

"If both sides agree on the declaration, verification, and dismantling of the Nyongbyon nuclear facility, we can say that it was a successful summit", Mr. Shin said.

The global sanctions against North Korea are created to severely limit its import and export abilities, with the aim of putting pressure on the country to give up its nuclear ambitions.

They were expected to meet in mid-February on the sidelines of an global forum in Germany but dropped the plan after Pompeo canceled his European trip, a senior Japanese Foreign Ministry official said.
