Trump says he's 'in no rush' after NKorea talks postponed

Trump says he's 'in no rush' after NKorea talks postponed

There's been little diplomatic progress in the five months since the June summit in Singapore where the US and North Korean leaders committed to "denuclearization" of the divided Korean Peninsula.

At the State Department on Wednesday, deputy spokesperson Robert Palladino said the postponement "is purely a scheduling issue".

The North Korean statement warned North Korea could bring back Kim Jong Un's trademark "pyongjin" policy of simultaneously advancing its nuclear force and its economic development if the United States doesn't change its stance.

Koh Yu-hwan, a North Korea expert at Seoul's Dongguk University and a policy adviser to South Korean President Moon Jae-in, said a high-level meeting between the USA and North Korea immediately after the US midterm elections was never realistic, especially when the North was in no mood to make any concrete concessions.

"I think we have to look at it as a part of the process of reaching complete denuclearization and setting up a peace regime", Yonhap cited the unnamed official as saying. Pompeo said on October 8 that those inspectors would visit North Korea "as soon as we get it logistically worked out".

Mike Pompeo had to take advantage of this new appointment to try to wrest concrete progress in the sensitive topic of the denuclearization and to prepare for a new summit between the us president, Donald Trump and Kim Jong One.

North Korea announced earlier this year that it would make a strategic shift away from its dual-track strategy of investing in the economy and the nuclear program and would instead focus all efforts on economic development.

But the deal has resulted in few tangible results, other than the USA suspension of some military exercises with South Korea, and North Korea's stated dismantlement of certain nuclear and missile testing sites, which the US says falls short of its expectations.

"The sanctions are on".

"We're working on finding dates and times and places that will work for each of the two leaders", Pompeo said at the time.

In announcing the meeting with Kim Jong Chol on Sunday, Pompeo said he expected to "make some real progress" including on laying the groundwork for a second summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un.

South Korea, which has worked to encourage U.S.

The U.S. State Department statement, the official noted, "has a calm tone", adding that the South Korean government "will continue to try to play a role in enabling momentum in dialogue".

Presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said Seoul did not believe it would mean that the second summit would not take place and a senior South Korean foreign ministry official said that while the rescheduling was regrettable, there was no need to "overthink the postponement".

The Democrats regained control of the US House of Representatives, where they will seek to keep Trump's agenda in check, while the Republicans maintained their majority in the Senate in Tuesday's midterm elections.
