Talks between North Korea and USA less than a month away

Talks between North Korea and USA less than a month away

At Beijing International Airport, the delegation headed by Pak Tae Song, vice chairman of the Workers' Party, was greeted by an official of China's ruling Communist Party and North Korea's ambassador to China, the Korean Central News Agency said. Abe will also press Trump to bring up the abduction issue during his meeting with Kim.

Besides making surprising advances in its missile capabilities in 2017, North Korea's leadership has focused on peddling its significance to its own society and culture: the regime revised its constitution in 2012 to tout its nuclear ambitions, and despite saying it no longer needs to conduct nuclear tests, its nuclear capabilities still remain an essential part of Kim's domestic and global clout. According to Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun, the North has resisted a request by the United States to relocate thousands of North Korean nuclear engineers-a move to assure the North can not restart nuclear development in the future.

Additionally, an agreement has yet to be made for what economic package the North Korean regime would receive in exchange for nuclear disarmament. Kim traveled to Beijing in March to hold talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping, and last week the two leaders met again for two days in the northeastern Chinese city of Dalian.

Bolton said the United States is pursuing a standard of "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization" heading into negotiations.

North Korea's sudden change in attitude was probably driven by the mounting global sanctions imposed over its weapons programmes that had begun to take a toll on the livelihoods of ordinary citizens, Thae said.

He added, "I think the most realistic solution would be to have the North agree to reducing its nuclear threat".
