North Korea understands US on 'complete denuclearisation' - Pompeo

Although Trump said last week that North Korea was in the process of returning the remains of USA troops missing from the 1950-1953 Korean War, Pompeo said none had yet been handed over to the United States.

"I say it a dozen times a day no matter who walks into my office and what country they are from", he said. "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

Senator Patrick Leahy barraged U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with questions on a number of topics at a hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday. "I don't think there's any doubt about that".

"We agreed to connect and modernize the Gyeongui and Donghae lines at a high level, and agreed to arrange practical measures for design and construction".

Shortly after the summit, Harris told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that the United States should suspend major military exercises with South Korea "to see if Kim Jong-un is in fact serious about his part of the negotiations".




"I'm not prepared to talk about the details of the discussions that are taking place", he said, "I think it would be inappropriate and, frankly, counterproductive to achieving the end state that we're hoping to achieve".

"The things they do today don't violate UN Security Council sanctions against North Korea".

"I'm confident what he intended there was, 'we did reduce the threat, '" Pompeo said, according to CNN. Seoul shut down the industrial park in 2016 in retaliation for the North's ballistic missile and nuclear tests. While these sites can not be detected by monitoring groups, they are assumed to remain operational, according to Wit.

But recent satellite imagery showed that not only were operations continuing at present at the North's main Yongbyon nuclear site, it was also carrying out infrastructure works, said the respected 38 North website. But as North Korea's largest trading partner and immediate neighbor, China is especially keen to see a resolution to the nuclear crisis that has threatened the stability of the region.

He added that Washington D.C. will not put a timeline on negotiations with North Korea, but will instead constantly reassess latter's commitment to denuclearisation.
