N. Korea urges U.S. to agree to declare end to Korean War

"The United States has lived up to the Singapore declaration".

According to the news outlet, along with the timeline and demanded cuts, the proposed framework also calls for the United States or a third party to take possession of the nukes and remove them from North Korea.

North Korea's nuclear weapons program has caused worldwide tension for decades and the rhetoric and threats from Kim and Trump had been especially hostile before their June meeting.

Randall Schriver, assistant secretary of defence for Asian and Pacific security affairs at the US Defence Department, told an American Enterprises Institute event on Tuesday that the Pentagon would "look to Secretary of State Pompeo and the president to give us a lead on their assessment of how the negotiations are going".

Vox reported it is unclear what concessions, if any, the United States would offer in exchange beyond sanctions relief or removing North Korea from the state sponsors of terrorism list.

He continued to note that the USA has no current plans to relax sanctions on North Korea until there is evidence the country is taking steps to denuclearize, saying the Trump administration would continue its campaign of "maximum pressure".

However, in testifying before the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee in late June, Pompeo acknowledged that North Korea was still producing nuclear materials, despite Kim's pledge to denuclearise.

Kim and Trump promised to work to end North Korea's weapons programs at their summit in Singapore, but the two countries have been struggling to reach a detailed accord to meet that goal.

North Korea appears to continue dismantling a rocket launching site, a US think tank said, based on satellite images.

The president has also repeatedly defended Kim's intentions, tweeting last month that he was "confident" the leader would "honor the contract we signed &, even more importantly, our handshake".

Citing two unnamed sources, Vox reported Pompeo has presented the plan to North Korean negotiators multiple times over the past two months.
