China, US Exchange Sharp Words During Pompeo Visit

China, US Exchange Sharp Words During Pompeo Visit

The message will be formally delivered to the Pope by President Moon of South Korea when he visits the Vatican this month. "We also need to clarify facts about the history of China-U.S. relations".

The top U.S. diplomat met with the North Korean leader in Pyongyang for two hours before Pompeo flew to South Korea on Sunday afternoon for a two-day visit.

KCNA said: "Together with Mike Pompeo, Kim Jong-un appreciated the positively developing situation on the Korean peninsula, explained in detail the proposals for solving the denuclearisation issue and matter of concern of both sides and exchanged constructive opinions".

"We demand that the USA side stop this kind of mistaken action", he said. Chairman Kim said he's ready to allow them to come in.

Kim also brought up the interactions between the North Korean leader and Roman Catholic Archbishop Hyginus Kim Hee-joong at Mt. Paektu last month, who was invited to join the South Korean delegation alongside President Moon.

A US decision to sell $330 million of military equipment to Taiwan on September 26 and a four-page supplement, sponsored by the official China Daily newspaper, published in Iowa's Des Moines Register on September 30 further ratcheted up tensions.

Pompeo's trip to Pyongyang, his fourth this year, followed a stalemate as North Korea resisted Washington's demands for irreversible steps to give up its nuclear arsenal, including a complete inventory of its weapons and facilities.

The Vatican doesn't have diplomatic relations with Pyongyang, which has a history of suppressing religion, but the two sides have had informal contacts over the years. Choe was out of the country - meeting officials in Russian Federation and China - when the Americans arrived.

After meeting with Kim in Pyongyang on Sunday, Pompeo told journalists in Seoul that the leader had agreed to open up the Punggye-ri nuclear testing site to inspectors, according to a pool report.

Pompeo met Wang and Yang Jiechi, a senior Cabinet official and former foreign minister, after talks Sunday with Kim in North Korea's capital, Pyongyang.

"The secretary directly addressed ‎areas where the United States and China do not agree, including on the South China Sea and human rights", said State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert.

Since the summit, the archbishop said he has met with Francis.

Pompeo also told reporters that a second summit between Trump and Kim was "pretty close".

Kim expressed enthusiasm for the future of talks between the two nations.

Pope Francis has made repeated public appeals for peace on the Korean peninsula, and led the faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square in prayers for the U.S. "But if you look at the approach, we are in lockstep with each of those two countries in terms of how we approach achieving the results that everyone is aimed at". According to the former official, the North Korean diplomats told him that denuclearization for them refers to a process by which the USA also reduces its nuclear weapons, possibly worldwide.
