United States to help N Korea's economy if it abandons nuclear weapons

Trump gives freed Americans flag-waving wee-hours welcome

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the United States is prepared to work with North Korea to achieve prosperity if it takes bold action to quickly denuclearize.

"While the North Koreans say that nuclear disarmament should proceed stage by stage, taking into account reciprocal steps and in the absence of a threat from the United States, the USA side insists on North Korea's transparent and unconditional denuclearization", the expert noted.

Pompeo has had two recent meetings with Kim to prepare for the summit and, last weekend, to negotiate the release of three Korean-Americans held in the North's jails.

Trump had announced he would meet with Kim in Singapore on June 12, two days before the US leader's 72nd birthday.

"Normalizing diplomatic relations with Japan is an extremely important step for North Korea to tread a right path in the global community", Abe said on a TV program, stressing he hopes Kim will not be satisfied only with holding talks with the USA and South Korean presidents.

Kang says there must be "airtight" coordination between South Korea and the US ahead of President Donald Trump's upcoming meeting with Kim.

In exchange for that US demand - one that many believe North Korea isn't seriously considering - the U.S.is willing to offer economic assistance, Pompeo said, promising "a future brimming with peace and prosperity".

"If Chairman Kim chooses the right path, there is a future brimming with peace and prosperity for the North Korean people", he said, adding that the United States had a track record of support for the Korean people that was "second to none".

She said the US troop presence in the South for the past 65 years has played a "crucial role for deterrence", peace and stability on the Korean peninsula.

"I think there is complete agreement about what the ultimate objectives are", Mr Pompeo said, though he declined to offer more detail.

At least 21 killed after dam burst in western Kenya
At least 100 people have died and almost 260,000 have been displaced this month by flooding in Kenya, the Kenya Red Cross said. Then came massive waves of water, which crashed through farmland, swept away hundreds of houses and killed at least 32 people.

"What Kim Jong Un has said publicly and in discussions is that he is prepared to negotiate to achieve complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", he said.

China has welcomed the upcoming summit of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and USA leaders in Singapore on June 12, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang said on Friday. North Korea's mountainous geography and years of insularity would make ensuring North Korea had verifiably given up its entire nuclear capability extremely hard. He even defended Kim when a reporter asked about his rationality, calling the question "undignified" and noting they had "conversations that involve deep, complex problems, challenges the strategic decision that Chairman Kim has before him".

To the United States, that means the North giving up the nuclear weapons it has already built.

"We hope that relevant parties will keep calm to maintain jointly regional peace and stability", he said. His family is suing North Korea.
