US vows to make North Korea rich if it gives up nukes

Fragile Korean Peace In Jeopardy As North Korea Slams 'Ignorant And Incompetent' South Korean Government

Pompeo had met beforehand with Kim whereas Central Intelligence Agency director, flying secretly to North Korea over the Easter weekend to debate the potential for a summit assembly with President Donald Trump and negotiations over North Korea's nuclear program.

"This will be Americans coming in, private sector Americans, not the USA taxpayer, private sector Americans coming in to help build out the energy grid ... to work with them to develop infrastructure, all the things the North Korean people need", Mr. Pompeo said, adding that those investments are wholly contingent on the North Koeans granting "what it is the president has demanded".

Pompeo, two weeks and one day on the job, returned early Thursday from what he called a "productive" meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un to agree on details for the Trump-Kim summit.

While the USA expressed willingness for private investment in North Korea, Bolton said that renewed economic sanctions against Iran after Trump's withdrawal of the US from the 2015 global accord restraining Tehran's nuclear program could be "quite dramatic".

-North Korea summit to be held in Singapore on June 12, in response to a request by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

"We can create conditions for real economic prosperity for the North Korean people that will rival that of the South", he added.

Pyongyang says it is dismantling its nuclear bomb test site sometime between May 23 and 25 and said that western observers would be allowed in to watch as tunnels at the site are collapsed with explosives and research buildings and security posts destroyed.

Seoul, which shuttled between Washington and Pyongyang to set up the Trump-Kim meeting, has said Kim has genuine interest in dealing away his nuclear weapons in return for economic benefits.

"Thank you, a very smart and gracious gesture!"

But there are lingering doubts about whether Kim would ever agree to fully relinquish the weapons he probably views as his only guarantee of survival.

"We reaffirmed that our goal is to achieve the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula", she added, promising "air-tight" coordination.

Pompeo also suggested that the US and North Korea could one day be "partners".

Some experts believe Kim may try to drag out the process or seek a deal in which he gives away his intercontinental ballistic missiles but retains some of his shorter-range arsenal in return for a reduced USA military presence in the South. "Inspectors quantify and log North Korea's capabilities".

"Now that North Korea has accepted in principle that agreements should be verified, USA negotiators should hold them to this standard for any subsequent agreement", said Adam Mount, a senior defense analyst at the Federation of American Scientists.

Among the biggest concerns is a question of sequence: The U.S.so far has insisted that North Korea completely abandon its nuclear program before the Trump administration eases its "maximum pressure campaign" of sanctions and diplomatic isolation.

"I think what we need to see from Kim Jong Un is that he and the entire North Korean regime have made a strategic decision that they will be better off without weapons of mass destruction", Bolton said.

In June 2008, global broadcasters were allowed to air the demolishing of a cooling tower at the Nyongbyon reactor site, a year after the North reached an agreement with the United States and four other nations to disable its nuclear facilities in return for an aid package.

U.S. President Donald Trump plans to raise the issue at the U.S. "I think we have a good understanding, and I think there is complete agreement about what the ultimate objectives are".
