N Korea assassinated Kim Jong-nam with chemical weapon: US”

The North's official KCNA news agency said on Wednesday the United States is "getting frantic" with the deployment of U.S. troops on the Korean peninsula and their drills to get "familiar with its terrain and arms buildup there".

I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. He praised the "possible progress" but remained cautious.

South Korea also said North Korea has agreed to halt tests of nuclear weapons and missiles if it holds talks with the United States on denuclearization.

One senior administration official, who requested anonymity, suggested "it's a good idea for everybody to keep some perspective, take a deep breath".

The prohibitions appeared largely symbolic as the United States has no relations with North Korea and has already imposed a number of strict sanctions on the country.

Meanwhile, the Russian Foreign Ministry has condemned new US sanctions imposed on Pyongyang. Reports say that North Korea wants to also talk to the U.S. - which of course meant a weird tweet from Donald Trump came Tuesday as well.

"I'm quite skeptical about all of this", Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told the Senate Armed Services Committee. "I seriously doubt it, but like I said, hope springs eternal".

During former President Lee Myung-bak's term in office, the hotline was suspended following South Korea sanctions against the North, according to local television network JTBC.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un grins, just on the verge of a belly laugh, as he grasps the hand of a visiting South Korean official.

Chung stressed that North Korea reiterated its commitment to giving up its nuclear weapons. Would de-escalation erode the rationale for American bases in the south? John McCain, R-Ariz., counted himself "a little more optimistic" than Coats.

Hong asked the president to limit the topics of Wednesday's meeting to security and inter-Korean issues, which the president accepted.

The U.S. State Department announced Tuesday that it has determined that Pyongyang used the banned VX nerve agent to kill Kim Jong Nam on February 13, 2017 as he walked through Kuala Lumpur's International Airport. "We must have a very focused discussion with the United States", he said. And achieving its nuclear aims rests on the North resuming tests of missiles and bombs that set the region on edge.

North Korea this week signaled its willingness to discuss nuclear disarmament with the United States. Chung said the North promised not to use its nuclear and conventional weapons against South Korea.

North Korea has yet to confirm details of the announcements from Seoul that appeared to open the door to dialogue between Washington and Pyongyang after a year of escalating threats by Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and escalating fears of war.

He said authorities are ill-prepared for the aftereffects of a nuclear blast. This was almost entirely attributable to the termination of Chinese imports of minerals.

The Atlantic published a piece headlined, "What if Trump's North Korea bluster actually worked?" and Bloomberg pointed out that "Trump's North Korea bluster scores a win" before adding "but at high risk".

Some US and South Korean officials have said that Pyongyang may simply be trying to buy time to develop weapons programmes.

Kim Jong-nam was largely estranged from his family and was bypassed for the leadership in favour of his younger half-brother, Kim Jong-un. "All options are on the table and our posture toward the regime will not change until we see credible, verifiable, and concrete steps toward denuclearization". South Korea was a big investor in the same area back in the late 1990s and tourism actually flourished for about a decade.

Hyung-jin Kim reported from South Korea.

It was unclear what exactly North Korea would want to see in order to begin any future process of denuclearization. It's also meaningful for Kim Jong Un, because this is the first summit that he'll attend.

"Most Koreans in the area tune into South Korea TV channels for news, so we have better access to facts", Che said.

Manifest no less is the essay towards mending of fences across the Demilitarized Zone. Second best is the envoy should have a strong support team of experienced experts.
