Koreas to hold ministerial-level meeting at DMZ on Wednesday

Indeed, at one point, Pompeo has suggested that the U.S.is more categorical about North Korea getting rid of chemical and biological weapons than nuclear weapons - another hint that "denuclearization" does not imply denuclearization.

"We are confident of our security through the Korea-U.S. joint security stance, which is why we say the issue of the alliance, any issue of the alliance, including the troop ('s) presence in our country, is a matter for our two allies to discuss and not to be put on the table with North Korea", she explained.

To be sure, South Korea's president Moon Jae-In requested that the United Nations step in to assist in verifying the shutdown of North Korea's nuclear program.

"Kim Jong-un is trying to spread this model to the whole of North Korea", he added.

The current whirlwind of diplomacy and negotiations will not end with "a honest and complete disarmament", but with "a reduced North Korean nuclear threat", said Thae Yong-ho, who fled his post as the North's deputy ambassador to Britain in August 2016.

U.S. President Donald Trump's change of tone on North Korea reflects the actions of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the White House said on Monday during a press briefing.

"If the North Koreans are genuine and allow these intrusive inspections, then it works", said Malcolm Davis, a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute in Canberra.

The first unlikely outcome, Narang told Business Insider, is that "Trump walks away with Kim's nuclear weapons", and the second is " catastrophic failure". The fact that Kim could draw positive comments from Xi regarding China's economic assistance may have led to Kim's judgement on denuclearization.

"I've been on the job about five weeks", Bolton said.

Drawing an example from the shuttered Kaesong Industrial Complex, the inter-Korea factory park in the North, the defector said North Korea "politically organized" Kaesong workers, blocked outside information and banned people from moving in and out of the site.

Mnuchin: Trump Fulfills Promises With New Embassy in Israel
The Trump administration has avoided that description, and noted that the city's final borders should be decided by the parties. He said the decision is merely a recognition of reality, and he said it provides a firmer foundation for peace negotiations.

"It is regrettable that North Korea did not invite nuclear experts to the destruction of the test site", it said in an editorial.

Still, Pompeo's comments in a separate interview with Fox News Sunday spurred questions about whether the U.S. would accept a deal that simply prevents North Korea from being able to hit the American homeland with a nuclear bomb.

At a party meeting last month, Kim proclaimed that the development of the North's nuclear force was complete and promised no more nuclear or missile tests.

Pompeo said Trump is in a unique position.
