North Korea Depolarization: Mr Trump says no 'Time Limit'

Trump - no hurry on North Korea denuclearisation

Trump - no hurry on North Korea denuclearisation

North Korea lambasted South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday (July 20) for "needlessly kibitzing" about relations between Pyongyang and Washington and dismissed Mr Moon's pledge to take the driver's seat on the Korean peninsula as "sophistry". "Russia has agreed to help with North Korea, where relationships with us are very good and the process is moving along", he said.

Her comment is in line with Trump's earlier remarks that there is "no time limit" and "no speed limit" to denuclearize North Korea's nuclear weapons. He also said: "There is no rush, the sanctions remain!" The hostages are back. There have been no tests.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo went to Pyongyang earlier this month and was accused by North Korea officials of acting "gangster-like" in their demands for denuclearization and called the meeting "deeply regrettable", according to the New York Times. The Pentagon says 7,699 US servicemen are missing from Korea, including about 5,300 believed to be in the North. Downes, 70, was 3½ when his father's B-26 Invader went down on January 13, 1952, northeast of Pyongyang, the North Korean capital.

North Korea said it would return between 50 and 55 sets of remains.

Last week North Korea accused the USA of making "gangster-like" demands for the process, and branded the United States attitude at high-level talks as "extremely troubling".

However, Trump last week signaled optimism, unveiling a letter from Kim in which the young leader hailed the "start of a meaningful journey" and tweeting "Great progress being made!"

The U.S. administration has lowered expectations for fast progress in nuclear talks with North Korea as no breakthrough on a deal has been reached more than five weeks after the historic summit between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un.

North Korean cargoes were carried from Wonsan and Chongjin to Kholmsk between July and September past year on six occasions.

The Singapore summit was mainly about Trump's push to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons.

An official at the ministry told reporters that relevant authorities are investigating whether the coal is really from the North, . and whether South Korean private dealers were involved. Giving up on the deadline will give North Korea a chance to become a nuclear-armed nation.

The South Korean government has generally refrained from openly criticizing the North's government during talks: On Friday, South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yeon praised Kim as a North Korean leader who finally cared about the "livelihoods of people".
