North Korea Slams'Preposterous US Report On Pervasive Sexual Violence

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he is resuming denuclearization talks with North Korea this week in NY, meeting with Pyongyang's second in command, Kim Yong Chol.

Progress on ending Pyongyang's nuclear weapons programs has slowed in the months since the Singapore summit in June between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, when the two leaders signed a general statement calling for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday that said he would be in New York City at the end of this week to meet with his North Korean counterpart, Kim Yong-chol. A large number of South Korean CEOs accompanied Moon in his September visit to Pyongyang, when he and Kim agreed to normalize operations at a jointly run factory park and resume South Korean visitors' travel to the North when possible, voicing optimism the worldwide sanctions could end and allow such projects. But it remains unclear if the small-scale military drills will complicate talks.

In Washington last week, South Korean Defense Minister Jeong Kyeong-doo said a decision would be made together with the December on major joint military exercises for next year. Pompeo did not provide the location and date for the meeting, which will likely be focused on persuading North Korea to take firmer steps toward denuclearization and setting up a second summit between their leaders.

Pompeo said there would be "no economic relief until we have achieved our ultimate objective", the end of North Korea's nuclear program.

As the United States and North Korea prepare for another round of high-level talks this week, Pyongyang's increasingly heated rhetoric has analysts anxious that the stalemate between the two sides could lead to a breakdown in negotiations. Experts believe there has been no change in its nuclear program despite ongoing negotiations.

"The US thinks that its oft-repeated "sanctions and pressure" lead to 'denuclearisation.' We can not help laughing at such a foolish idea".

Despite friction between Washington and Pyongyang, North and South Korea continue to improve relations, and the two sides will begin a joint survey of estuaries near the border this week that could see ships from either side use the waterways. It is the first time since the end of the 1950-53 Korean war the area will be surveyed and it has always been a flashpoint for tensions between the two Koreas.
