Korea Will Honor 'Contract' to Denuclearize

Undeterred by a blistering rebuke of his efforts to forge a denuclearization deal with North Korea, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Sunday appealed for North Korea's leadership to follow Vietnam's path in overcoming past hostilities with the United States.

Japanese Foreign Ministry officials say in their meeting in Tokyo on Sunday, Pompeo gave Kono details on his latest talks with North Korea, which outlined in detail the steps toward denuclearization the USA expects the North to take.

5 - Pompeo has highlighted how much economic benefit Vietnam has seen by cooperating with the US and how North Korea could also follow suit.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, reacting to the provocative statement from North Korea, said that if Washington's demands were "gangster-like", then the world is a gangster.

Pompeo brushed the negative comments aside during a press briefing in Tokyo on July 8 and again in Afghanistan on July 9, saying that the two sides made progress during the talks.

Quintana was in South Korea on a week-long mission to meet with government officials, activists, North Korean defectors as well as some of the restaurant workers to gather information for his regular report to the UN General Assembly in October.

"We had expected that the USA side would offer constructive measures that would help build trust based on the spirit of the leaders' summit".

We Finally Know Why Ant-Man Wasn’t In Avengers: Infinity War
This movie does have some hints that provide links to Avengers 4 , with one of the fan theories being not so subtly confirmed. The TV is showing only the "Emergency Broadcast System" signal - probably as a result of the mayhem caused by Thanos.

But officials have allowed three North Korean feature films and six short movies to be screened at the annual Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival on Seoul's outskirts from July 12, organizers said.

Soon after Pompeo departed from North Korea on Saturday, senior officials in Pyongyang blasted his perhaps overly optimistic views about the talks, in a statement released by the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). He said there's a "disconnect" between Trump's rhetoric and what he's actually achieved to end the nuclear threat.

Whether or not the strong words KCNA used against Pompeo marks a return to its usual forceful but rather empty rhetoric remains unclear.

"If those requests were gangster-like, the world is a gangster", Pompeo told reporters in Tokyo, citing United Nations resolutions.

In his first remarks about the challenging weekend talks, Trump suggested that China, North Korea's chief ally, might be interfering in reaction to the Trump administration's stance on US-China trade.

North Korean negotiations will be long and grueling, but they shouldn't eat up all of America's attention.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, meanwhile, accused China of using its influence over the North to sabotage the diplomatic process because of its trade war with the United States. "We had detailed, substantive conversations about the next steps toward a fully verified and complete denuclearization".
