Ahead of summits, North Korea's ruling party calls meeting

Ahead of summits, North Korea's ruling party calls meeting”

It is said that after he returned from Pyongyang, Pompeo told his boss that it is definitely worthwhile to meet with Kim, suggesting that the possibility of their summit being canceled is pretty remote. The meeting could take place in late May or June this year.

Representatives of North and South Korea agreed to hold the summit of the countries' leaders Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-in on April 27.

Youn Kun Young, director of the South Korean president's government situation room, said Moon's office made a four-minute trial call to North Korea's State Affairs Commission at 3:41 p.m. Seoul time.

The United States stations 28,500 troops in South Korea, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War, which ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's latest meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump has underscored the grim reality of diplomacy between the two countries.

A Wednesday editorial in China's state-run newspaper The Global Times dismissed that prospect, saying "North Korea won't choose a Western country as Kim's safety could not be fully guaranteed".

It has been 18 years since a senior USA official last visited Pyongyang.

"While North Korea may claim that the objective of its nuclear program is to defend against security threats posed by the USA, the real goal of North Korea's nuclear arsenal is to cause the U.S.to decouple its security relationship from the Republic of Korea", Hill told a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on April 11, referring to South Korea by its formal name.

North Korea´s military is an integral part of the ruling regime, and officials and outside experts say it is still not clear that Kim is willing to completely give up those weapons.

Kim Gil-sun is an ex-journalist from Pyongyang. It may stress the precondition that the regime's security has to be guaranteed first or it might choose not to call itself a "nuclear state' but a "strategic country.' The party could also show a willingness to improve relations with Seoul, Washington and Tokyo, and seek a peaceful coexistence within the worldwide community".

Adding "the devil is in the details", Kim Won-soo went on to say that challenges will begin after the inter-Korean summit. The question is, will the meeting deliver tangible results? We have serious doubts about that.

It has said over the years that it could consider giving up its nuclear arsenal if the United States removed its troops from South Korea and withdrew its so-called nuclear umbrella of deterrence from South Korea and Japan.

The armistice that halted fighting in the war was signed by the USA -led United Nations Command, North Korea and China. The problem is, what is exactly meant by "irreversible"? Trump has now declared that he would pull out of the meeting if his diplomatic overture was unlikely to be successful.

United States military leaders have refused to put the drills on the table as a negotiating chip.

As such, one shouldn't expect too much from the upcoming summit since there are too many variables regarding its outcome.

But in the same breath, he warned: "If I think that it's a meeting that is not going to be fruitful, we're not going to go". Outside the capital, rural families now sometimes make do with only two meals a day.
