U.S., North Korea to hold second day of nuclear talks

South Korean war hero Choi Deuk-soo

General Kim Yong Chol, vice chairman of the central committee of the Workers' Party and right-hand man to Kim, is also in NY, officials said.

Kim Yong Chol landed in NY on Wednesday as the most senior North Korean envoy to hold talks with American officials on USA soil in 18 years.

Donald Trump has praised the "very good meetings" the United States has had with North Korean officials in NY, one week after he cancelled a planned summit with Kim Jong Un.

The two men, each accompanied by an aide, dined together on American beef at the 39th-floor condo Wednesday night in what was their third encounter. He and Pompeo had discussions over dinner of steak, corn and cheese on Wednesday, Pompeo said in a tweet.

But as they've done so often during this current dynasty, the Warriors erupted in the third quarter. After the game, Curry told reporters coach Steve Kerr had some advice after his rocky start.

Mr. Trump said he was hopeful that his meeting with Mr. Kim could still take place on June 12 in Singapore, adding that resumed talks have gone very well and that the negotiations "are in good hands".

Similarly, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders made a thankful shout-out to Singapore as well, confirming that the USA delegation has met with their North Korean counterparts here, and will do so again. "Hopefully we will have a meeting on the (June) 12th", Trump said, adding there may be multiple meetings but "maybe we'll have none". The assessment, released Monday by experts at Stanford University, comes as the White House is trying to verify how committed North Korea is to denuclearization and how it could be achieved, ahead of a potential summit between the two leaders, according to CNN's article North Korea denuclearization could take a decade, experts say.

"I can say that we have just entered the gate of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", said Cho, a top adviser to President Moon Jae-in who has been engaged with North Korean officials in talks at Panmunjom truce village in the Demilitarized Zone. He is the highest-level representative from the North to set foot in the United States since 2000. Instead, the officials said, it brought both sides to the table with increasing seriousness, as they work through myriad logistical and policy decisions to keep June 12 a viable option for the summit.

Trump announced that Kim Yong Chol was coming to NY for talks with Pompeo in a tweet on Tuesday in which he said he had a "great team" working on the summit. His portfolio includes North Korea's relationship with China and, lately, the United States.

He also asked the Odisha government to reduce Value-Added Tax on petroleum products to contain the cascading effect of rising fuel prices.

On Thursday, Kim met with Russia's foreign minister and complained about "US hegemonism", a comment that may complicate the discussions in NY.

It encouraged North Koreans "to firmly stand on the path that our previous leaders' built for national defense" and pledged that the country will "hold our artillery to face our enemies who hold guns and swords, '" said the source.

He was head of the RGB, North Korea's spy service, from 2009 to 2016 during the time the spy agency is believed responsible for the 2010 torpedoing of a South Korean naval vessel, the Cheonan, in which 46 sailors were killed. But a North-U.S. leaders' summit did not come about, and U.S. President George W. Bush took office in January 2001.

Zakharova replied that Russian Federation had "planned a number of initiatives", adding, "I think that I will be able to share more information on this subject in the near future".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will visit North Korea on Thursday to hold talks with his counterpart Ri Yong Ho about the situation on the Korean peninsula, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday. He is the vice chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea Central Committee responsible for South Korean affairs.
