North Korea promised to close its atomic test site next month and invite USA weapons experts to the country, Seoul said Sunday, as Donald Trump expressed optimism about securing a nuclear deal in his summit with the secretive regime.
President Trump said he had agreed a date and location for a summit with Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator, but insisted that a withdrawal of USA troops from South Korea was "not on the table". He told reporters on Friday that the date and venue of the first-ever U.S. -DPRK summit had already been set and will be announced "soon".
And while Trump said he was not envisaging a draw down of troops in South Korea for now-something the regime in Pyongyang has long wanted-he admitted it was a possibility in the longer term.
Tension has been high on the flashpoint peninsula since past year when the North carried its sixth - and most powerful - atomic test and test-fired missiles capable of reaching the U.S. mainland. Two weeks ago, shortly before the inter-Korean summit, Moon said that Kim actually wasn't insisting on a longstanding demand for the withdrawal of US troops as a precondition for abandoning his nukes.
At the same meeting last week, Kim also vowed to begin shutting down North Korea's nuclear test site in Punggye-ri this month.
Trump touted his ability to achieve a nuclear deal with the regime at a campaign-style rally in MI to cheers and chants of "Nobel!" Trump has also acknowledged the positive role played by Chinese leadership in resolving Korean crisis. "Don't talk! You may make them and him angry!"
China and Japan called for dealing with the issue of denuclearisation of North Korea through dialogue and consultation.
The heads of North and South Korea met on April 27 inside the Demilitarized Zone dividing the Koreas.
His administration was "in constant contact" with Pyongyang, he added. Meeting went very smoothly and a good relationship was formed. In addition, for some years much of the American alt-right that supports Trump now sees hyper-nationalist and reclusive North Korea as an ally in their fight against "globalism".
That event did not slow the North's nuclear drive, but the situation looks more upbeat this time, Hong Min, analyst at the Korea Institute for National Unification, told AFP. "As I said yesterday, stayed tuned". He's previously said the summit was planned for May or early June.
But the phrase is a diplomatic euphemism open to interpretation on both sides.
"Pyongyang Time" was created as tensions between the authoritarian country and the US grew over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons programme and worldwide sanctions aimed at dismantling it.
Following his meeting with the North Korean leader, Moon Jae-In reported that Kim would be willing to give up their nuclear weapons and program if the Donald Trump would agree that the United States would bring a formal end to the Korean War and promise not to attack North Korea.
