Trump privately frustrated over lack of progress on North Korea negotiations

The company has reportedly been set up as a joint venture between the North Korean cultural bureau and the Chinese travel union, with the North retaining overall control.

Unable to secure an agreement on remains during his trip, Pompeo scheduled a meeting between the North Koreans and their Pentagon counterparts to discuss the issue at the demilitarized zone on July 12.

The Panamanian cargo ship Sky Angel arrived at Incheon port with 4,156 tons of coal and the Sierra Leone-registered Rich Glory at Pohang with 5,000 tons after carrying them from the Russian port of Kholmsk in October past year.

On Monday, Mr Trump said he was "very happy" with how talks were progressing with North Korea, after observers and the media highlighted an apparent lack of concrete results since the summit with Kim.

North Korean officials have delayed and repeating canceled follow-up meetings with United States officials.

On Monday, the U.S. State, Treasury and Homeland Security departments said, "The worldwide community can not let up on pressure" until North Korea ends its nuclear weapons program.

"It's very clear that information gets in because you can see in terms of this South Korea K-pop in the North and seeing the North mimicking some of the cultural things that they're getting", King said.




North Korea is refusing to denuclearise unless the United States meets its demands for a new peace treaty, it has been reported.

Both nations are working to open this office in the North Korean border town of Kaesong before the end of next month, one of the agreements reached at the inter-Korean summit last April.

A high-ranking government official here said, "We asked for exemptions within the framework of sanctions to continue dialogue and cooperation with the North".

Naysayers naively like to say that US President Donald Trump gave up too much in his historic meeting with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un.

China, its biggest trading partner, enforced sanctions strictly in the second half of 2017, hurting North Korea's manufacturing sector. It is now negotiating exemptions to refurbish a liaison office in the shuttered Kaesong Industrial Complex and a reunion center in the North's Mt. Kumgang resort. Amid the detente, both China and Russian Federation have publicly called for a review of UNSC resolutions and their potential easing. He is expected to hold a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in September.

The extension of work visas was banned under UNSC Resolution 2375 in September a year ago. "North Korea is playing the same old game with you they've played with every other president".

China and Russian Federation recently blocked a US request made at the UNSC to stop oil transfers to North Korea after it presented evidence that North Korea had exceeded its importation quota for oil products under UNSC resolutions for the year already.
