US officials are seeking a "substantive next step" toward denuclearization, Secretary of State Mike Pompeotold CNN on Saturday, adding that Washington has been seeing good progress in discussions with Pyongyang. But beyond surveys and tape-cuttings, the Koreas can not move much further along without the removal of USA -led sanctions against the North, which isn't likely before it takes firmer steps toward relinquishing its nuclear weapons and missiles.
Trump has remained optimistic but has insisted economic sanctions and other US -led efforts to pressure the communist state into giving up its nuclear weapons will continue until concrete progress is made.
Pence has also said it was essential that worldwide sanctions pressure be maintained on North Korea until its complete denuclearisation was achieved. He also said his administration is ready to lift the sanctions on North Korea, but asserted that Pyongyang has to be "responsive" to Washington.

The inspection is part of a summit agreement between the leaders of the Koreas, signed in April, to modernize and eventually reconnect rail systems across their border in a bid to foster reconciliation on the Korean Peninsula. While the United States insists on allowing inspectors to verify Pyongyang's commitment to the agreement, North Korea wants Washington to act in good faith and lift some of the sanctions.
