Kim Jong-un knows denuclearization must be 'quick' - Pompeo

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that there will be no sanctions relief for North Korea until it has denuclearised in a way that is "complete, verifiable and irreversible".

"The North Korean people have suffered so much for so long and for them to see the president praise Kim Jong-un as a terrific guy and then even go further and say the North Korean people love Kim Jong-un". "President Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most unsafe problem".

"The sequence will be different this time", the top United States diplomat told reporters at the joint press conference with his South Korean and Japanese counterparts in Seoul.

Vladimir Putin was delivered a handwritten note by Kim Jong-un by a North Korean official during a meeting earlier today.

Turning to a trilateral sit-down between the top diplomats of South Korea, U.S. and Japan.

"North Korea is a real and present threat".

The Russian leader had a meeting with North Korean official Kim Yong Nam on Thursday, at which he handed over an invitation for Mr Kim to visit later in 2018.

Contrasting the Trump policy with previous U.S. administrations, Pompeo said: "In the past, they were providing economic and financial relief before. complete denuclearisation had taken place". "We're hopeful that we can achieve that in the two and a half years". But simultaneously, most of the country's population has been taught that the a nation of imperialists determined to destroy their country.

Pompeo also said, "We believe that Chairman [of the Workers' Party of Korea] Kim Jong Un understands the urgency of the timing of completing this denuclearization".

Despite the lack of detail in the summit agreement, Trump stressed at a news conference afterward that he trusted Kim to follow through.

Daimler has previously clashed with the KBA's findings regarding diesel emissions, and has maintained it has done nothing wrong. This recall, however, should put things back on track for the company and ease pressure from the authorities.

"I think he's going to do these things", Trump said.

Speaking later in the day in Beijing, Pompeo said China, Japan and South Korea all acknowledged a corner had been turned on the Korean peninsula issue, but that all three had also acknowledged sanctions remained in place.

Trump has been under fire for his friendliness towards North Korea.


"In this context I would like to stress that we certainly welcome these contacts which began between the leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the president of the Republic of Korea", he said.
