Pompeo: No Sanctions Relief for North Korea Before Complete Denuclearization

Pompeo: No Sanctions Relief for North Korea Before Complete Denuclearization

A North Korea expert with inside knowledge of the Trump administration agreed Tuesday that Trump had taken us back from the brink of war.

Putin said he would like to welcome Kim Jong-un to Russian Federation, suggesting they meeting during an economic forum in the far eastern port city of Vladivostok this September. In also expressing a desire to eventually remove the 28,500 American troops stationed on the peninsula, Mr Trump's shift could overturn longstanding United States policy in Asia and has received a cool reception from Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

Vladimir Putin has invited Kim Jong Un to Russian Federation in September following the North Korean dictator's meeting with Donald Trump.

Four days of free parking in Dubai announced for Eid Al Fitr
The Federal Government has declared Friday, 15th and Monday, 18th June as public holidays to celebrate this year's Eid-el Fitr. The holy month of Ramadan or Ramzan, observed by the Muslims across the world, is coming to an end.


Kim Do-gyun, the South's lead negotiator who is in charge of North Korea policy at the defence ministry, told reporters before departing for the DMZ that he and Ahn would explore ways to ease military tensions and the schedule of a ministerial meeting.

"South Korea, which obviously is right next door, and Japan, which essentially is next door, they're going to be helping them", Trump told a press conference after the summit. "But they'll come off - as you know, and as I've said, sanctions right now remain". Bush took a tougher stance toward North Korea, and the 1994 nuclear deal collapsed because of suspicions that the North was running a secret uranium program. Last summer, the operation included 17,500 US troops, including 3,000 who traveled to South Korea from other locations to participate. Tokyo has reacted with concern at Trump's surprise announcement that military exercises with South Korea are to be halted, saying that such drills are "vital" for East Asian security.

He added Trump was "parroting Chinese and North Korean propaganda" when he called the exercises "provocative". Their intercontinental ballistic missiles have the range to hit the USA mainland, though there are still major questions about their accuracy and ability to deliver an in-tact warhead. -South Korean military alliance remains strong, and they will continue to closely consult on all joint security decisions.

Clashes near Yemens Hodeidah as UN seeks truce
The United Nations fears that a battle in Hodeidah could be devastating for the estimated 600,000 people still living in the city. The three-year conflict has killed more than 10,000 people and displaced more than 3 million.


In particular, the report notes that the joint statement signed by the two countries contains language that is weaker than agreements that North Korea has signed in the past. Regarding the alliance, we are dealing with all the issues under the premise that we maintain the ironclad joint defense posture. "We can schedule this meeting regardless of global events between our foreign ministries", he said.

According to Trump's own State Department, Kim's regime holds between 80,000 and 120,000 political prisoners in forced labor camps, facing torture and forced starvation. Whatever agreement exists lives only in the imaginations of President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Japanese Foreign Minister Kono was more cautious in his praise. Well, so is our presence in South Korea, with 28,000 troops, 50,000 more in Japan, and the Third Marine division in Okinawa.
