'Little to no change' in North Korean capabilities: USA commander

Kim could also meet with Vietnam's President Nguyễn Phú Trọng before sitting down with Trump.

"Little to no verifiable change has occurred and North Korea's military capabilities", Abrams told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Gen. Abrams stressed that even if the United States eliminates the nuclear menace, USA troops will need to remain in the region to combat other conventional threats to American interests posed by North Korea.

The comment by David Malpass, under secretary of the US Treasury for global affairs, came after Hong Nam-ki, the minister of economy and finance, asked the World Bank to play a leading role in providing assistance for development of North Korea in case there is meaningful progress on denuclearisation.

The finding comes ahead of a second planned summit between the North Korean leader and U.S. President Donald Trump.

Mr Rogers said the two Koreas would have "a great future" when South Korea's capital, management and capabilities meet the natural resources and cheap, educated labour in the North. For three decades of intermittent starvation and eccentric despotism, North Korea has sought to build a nuclear arsenal....

Two weeks before a second summit between the leaders of the United States and North Korea, the commander of U.S. forces in South Korea has said he has seen "little to no verifiable change" in Pyongyang's military capabilities following last year's first meeting.

Despite the bonhomie of Kim and Trump's first meeting, progress has since stalled with the two sides disagreeing over what Kim's pledge means.

"With only two weeks until the summit, it will be hard to resolve all the tricky issues, but there's a chance if we can agree on a timeline (for denuclearization)", a South Korean delegation member quoted Biegun as saying.

Both were held in South Korea.

The State Department declined to comment.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a visit to Slovakia on Tuesday he hoped for "substantial progress" in Hanoi.

"Russia has consistently advocated for the peaceful settlement of nuclear and other issues of the Korean Peninsula", Zinoviev said at a reception hosted by the North Korean Embassy to Russian Federation.

The production came in spite of nuclear talks with the US led by the historic summit in Singapore last June.

After the first summit, Trump tweeted that "there was no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea" and that "everybody can now feel much safer".

The Singapore-based investor, who once said he would "put all of my money" in North Korea if he could, received the United States government's approval for the trip with his wife.
