Jim Rogers: US Govt Keeping Me From Investing in North Korea

Donald Trump Kim Jong-un

"This could be something that comes right to the end and doesn't happen", said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Trump "secretly watching CNN" all day and night GOP candidate behind "Deportation Bus" loses in gubernatorial bid Penn to Hewitt: Mueller probe born out of "hysteria" MORE said Wednesday he will decide next week whether to go ahead with plans to hold a nuclear summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trump said on Tuesday there was a "substantial chance" it will be called off amid concerns Pyongyang is not prepared to give up its nuclear arsenal.

"All-in-one would be nice, I can tell you", Trump said.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo eased off USA demands that North Korea give up its nuclear weapons immediately in exchange for sanctions relief, saying instead that the Trump administration wants Kim Jong Un's regime to take "credible steps" toward that goal.

"The ideal summit outcome for the United States is for North Korea to give up its nuclear programme, and Trump won't mind postponing the talks if he can ultimately achieve this goal", Zhao said. "And I have no doubt that you will be able to complete-accomplish a historic feat that no one had been able to achieve in the decades past".

President Donald Trump was scheduled to meet with Kim Jong Un to discuss North Korea's nuclear weapons program on June 12 in Singapore, but recently leaders of both countries have cast doubt on whether the meeting will take place.

Trump encouraged Kim to focus on the opportunities offered by the meeting and to make a deal to abandon his nuclear program, pledging not only to guarantee Kim's personal security but also predicting an economic revitalization for the North. The North also threatened to abandon the planned Trump-Kim meeting over US insistence on rapidly denuclearizing the peninsula, issuing a harshly worded statement that the White House dismissed as a negotiating ploy.

Instead, Trump suggested in the Oval Office on Tuesday that the meeting could be delayed.

Pompeo, who has met Kim in Pyongyang twice in recent weeks to prepare the groundwork for the summit with Trump, said the U.S. has no intention of making concessions to Pyongyang.

Trump said Kim had not met unspecified "conditions" for the summit.

In their most recent meeting two weeks ago, Pompeo said he and Kim spoke about their mutual goals for the talks.

Despite the North's move, Trump said he believes Kim is willing to give up nukes. "I think he is absolutely very serious", the USA president said.

North Korea's willingness to denuclearize - the very basis for the talks - was recently plunged into doubt when the government denounced USA demands for "unilateral nuclear abandonment".

As part of a charm offensive, North Korea invited some foreign journalists to witness the slated destruction of the isolated regime's nuclear test site. Trump said he was displeased by China's softening of border enforcement measures against North Korea.

The gesture, which experts agree would do little to curb North Korea's long-term nuclear capabilities, is meant to signal that the regime is serious about change.

Pompeo steered away from that comparison, but said the US wants "rapid denuclearization, total and complete, that won't be extended over time".

Trump has not been deeply engaged in briefing materials on North Korea's nuclear program, according to three people with knowledge of the White House efforts.

A summit between the leaders of the United States and North Korea will still go ahead because there is too much at stake at home for either side to cancel.

Analysts saw North Korea's perceived slow peddling as evidence of what they feared all along, that Pyongyang may have been playing for time - hoping to ease sanctions and "maximum pressure", or of South Korea over torquing the prospects of a deal.
