Threats put North Korea negotiations at risk

Threats put North Korea negotiations at risk

South Korea said the North's decision signified "meaningful" progress toward denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and would create favorable conditions for successful meetings with it and the United States.

"But I have to tell you, there are a lot of people asking, there are not many preconditions that the United States is asking for".

And observers are dubious about trusting North Korean pledges, after decades of broken promises from the hermit regime surrounding its nuclear programme.

But look, I think we go into this knowing we've got a huge problem, he's gone way down the road with his nuclear activity, very close to having something that's a danger to the United States, and I think beginning discussion we should hope for the biggest and just see where it goes.

Mr. Trump's goal is denuclearization of the communist nation, which also has tested intercontinental ballistic missiles and raised threats against the USA and its allies. "There's a lot of things they are not promising that is raising some red flags".

About this he wrote on his Twitter page on Sunday 22 April. But Trump tweeted Sunday that the North has "agreed to denuclearization (so great for World), site closure, & no more testing!"

Actress to get bail hearing in sex slave case
Prosecutors say she helped recruit sex slaves for leader Keith Raniere and his group called NXIVM (NEX'-ee-um). Mack reportedly lured women in by convincing them that it acted as a female mentorship and empowerment group.

The Japanese government reacted coolly to North Korea's announcement on Saturday of its suspension of nuclear tests and intercontinental ballistic missile test-launches, and scrapping of its nuclear test site. The cost of forcing North Korea to give up all of its nuclear weapons will simply be too high.

According to South Korea, Kim has expressed a willingness to discuss getting rid of his nuclear weapons, but he has not committed to actually do so.

The president debunks left-leaning journalist Chuck Todd's statement on North Korea, and sounds off on progress in talks with the Pyongyang. "Although the North's announcement is quite dramatic, it's natural for the world to be extra sensitive to every word spoken by Kim".

Other lawmakers also took a cautious view on what could be accomplished through negotiations with the North.

"Look, this is a great public relations effort by Kim Jong Un. I think everyone within the administration and Congress approaches this with skepticism and caution", Bob Corker, the Republican chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said on CNN's State of the Union.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) noted the pledge to stop testing nuclear weapons was easily reversible. But again, I think [Kim's] handling himself well, to begin the meetings in a way that nearly puts the US on the defensive. "And what are they going to do with their existing nuclear weapons", Nam said.
