Korean leaders visit sacred volcano amid nuclear talks


South Korean President Moon Jae-in made his first trip to the North Korean capital Pyongyang this week, where he convened yet another summit with leader Kim Jong-un, continuing denuclearization talks and diplomatic progress between the neighboring countries.

The special gift arrived in South Korea earlier in the day, well before Moon returned from the North after his three-day trip there, according to Yoon Young-chan.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was equally enthusiastic, saying he had invited his North Korean counterpart Ri Yong-ho to meet in NY at the UN General Assembly.

Pompeo said he spoke with his North Korean counterpart Wednesday morning.

Moon said he will carry a private message from Kim for Trump when he meets the USA president in NY next week at a United Nations meeting.

After the Liverpool game, Warnock said: "When you get Daniel fit and firing, you can not ignore him". The Parisians got on the board just before halftime through left-back Thomas Meunier.


In their agreement, the North also said it would "permanently close" a missile engine testing site and launch facility in Tongchang-ri "in the presence of experts from relevant nations".

Last year Mr Trump engaged in a war of rhetoric with Mr Kim in which he threatened to destroy North Korea.

"On the basis of these important commitments, the United States is prepared to engage immediately in negotiations to transform U.S. -DPRK relations", said Pompeo.

Trump has maintained that he and Kim have a solid relationship, and both leaders have expressed interest in a follow-up summit to their meeting in June in Singapore.

"The peace treaty will be fulfilled as the final step of complete denuclearization".

Samsung bets on smartphone rear cameras
The Galaxy A7 comes with a 24 megapixel, 5 megapixel, and 8 megapixel camera on its back, and will begin sales in early October. It consists of a 24-megapixel lens with an LED flash, capable of taking bokeh-effect photos and creating AR Emojis .


South Korean presidential spokesperson Kim Eui-keum said Kim Jong Un had made the offer and Moon had accepted, without sharing further details of their schedule.

Some senior South Korean officials accompanying Moon suggested inviting Kim and his wife to Mount Halla, the highest mountain and a scenic tourist resort in the South.

They said the North was also willing to close its main nuclear complex if the United States took unspecified "reciprocal action". North Korea has been demanding a declaration formally ending the Korean War, which was stopped in 1953 by a ceasefire, but neither leader mentioned it Wednesday as they read the joint statement.

Mr Moon has stated that visiting Mount Paektu was a "long unfulfilled dream".

Kim Jong Un, too, has visited the mountain around major developments in North Korea, such as before he executed top officials including his uncle Jang Song-thaek in late 2013, and following North Korea's fifth nuclear test in 2016.

First Red Dead Online Details Revealed; Beta Coming in November
Furthermore, Rockstar's words heavily imply that Red Dead Online will essentially be a live service, much like GTA: Online is. Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to release at the end of October, but its online multiplayer mode will only arrive in November.


Historians say the 5,000-year timeline of Korean history is a groundless claim that became part of South Korea's official narrative after being inserted in school textbooks during the rule of former dictator Chun Doo-hwan.
