Pompeo to visit Pyongyang for weekend talks with North Korean leader

US Secretary of State Pompeo to meet North Korea's Kim Jong-un

"It can never be a bargaining chip for getting the DPRK denuclearized".

The lawmaker mentioned how the North Korean leadership has "changed" and how the North Korean people were looking forward to "change", adding that those circumstances induced the Democratic Party to feel it isn't long before both Koreas celebrate National Foundation Day together.

"We will never beg the United States to lift sanctions", it said. He said there should be no sanctions relief until there's at least "concrete steps" toward denuclearization.

"Without any trust in the USA, there will be no confidence in our national security", Ri Yong Ho said, "and under such circumstances there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves first". "The U.S. should squarely see the trend of the times and make a proper choice".

USA officials have said the sanctions will remain in place until North Korea has "fully" and "verifiably" denuclearized.

Senate Advances Kavanaugh Nomination to Final Vote
Senate, and with the two key senators choosing to vote in favour of Kavanaugh, the confirmation looked locked-in late on Friday. He was nominated by Trump to succeed retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was seen as a swing vote on the court.

Referring to a previous verification effort in 2008, Kang said that demanding an inventory of North Korea's nuclear assets risks, at this stage, derailing the process.

North Korea has complained on a weekly basis about the continued United States and global sanctions placed on the country, and on Thursday said the measures were a "source of mistrust".

The offer to close Yongbyon "doesn't get at the heart of their program". "He made it clear that Kim Jong Un was determined to ensure the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

The rare advance announcement of a meeting with the young strongman came hours after North Korea raised the stakes in negotiations, saying it would not give up its nuclear weapons in exchange for a peace treaty.

Others say Pyongyang might be prepared to reduce - but not eliminate - its nuclear stockpile and missile capability, in return for economic benefits and security guarantees from Washington.

After all, Brent surged to $85 per barrel in recent days, evidence that oil traders are not convinced about OPEC's strategy. Those are serious numbers, and should be taken with a grain of salt, but they offer a window into the thinking in Moscow.

His Foreign Minister, Mr Ri Yong Ho, on Saturday told the United Nations General Assembly that there was a "deadlock" in the denuclearisation talks as the U.S. "relies on coercive measure that are lethal to trust-building".

North Korea's state newspaper Rodong Sinmun called the sanctions "rude" in light of its conciliatory measures.

In addition to government officials, the South Korean delegation includes lawmakers, civic and religious leaders and the son of late South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun, who participated in the 2007 summit with North Korea's then-leader Kim Jong Il, the father of current ruler Kim Jong Un.

The two are also likely to talk about the second Kim-Trump summit.

After a meeting between Pompeo and Ri on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, the State Department announced that Pompeo will travel to the DPRK to discuss the second Trump-Kim summit.
