North Korea to become nuclear weapons state: Former diplomat

Abe to convey views

"Even though the USA has said that it will provide economic assistance if North Korea achieves denuclearization, the promise by the us can not be trusted", Kim reportedly said to Xi, according to Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun on May 13, citing unnamed diplomatic resources.

The meeting will discuss specific plans needed to carry out the April 27 inter-Korea summit declaration, which includes pledges to finally end a seven-decade war this year, and pursue "complete denuclearization".

White House national security adviser John Bolton said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that North Korea's prospects are "unbelievably strong if they'll commit to denuclearization".

North and South Korea affirmed their commitment to the goal of denuclearisation of the peninsula at a summit last month, and Pyongyang announced at the weekend it will destroy its only known nuclear test site next week.

A North Korean delegation arrived in Beijing on Monday, Japanese media said, as the two allies step up diplomatic contacts ahead of a landmark meeting between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump. Also in the delegation will be Kim Yun-hyok, vice minister of Railways, and Won Kil-U, vice minister of Physical Culture and Sports. "He will never give them up", Thae continued.

Melania Trump's Emergency Kidney Procedure Explained
The East Wing keeping her medical condition private until after the procedure was nothing unusual, the Post said. The Internet has gone wild with speculation that Melania Trump is miserable in her role as First Lady.

But Thae, one of the highest ranking officials to have defected in recent years, said: "North Korea will argue that the process of nuclear disarmament will lead to the collapse of North Korea and oppose CVID". But the flawless situation of North Korea giving up their nuclear program totally may be unrealistic, but there is some room to negotiate to have a positive result.

Relations between China and North Korea have drastically improved recently.

But an analysis by 38 North, a North Korea-focused US website, said commercial imagery taken last week shows that several operational support buildings have been razed and rails for mining carts have apparently been removed. Kim traveled to Beijing in March to hold talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping, and last week the two leaders met again for two days in the northeastern Chinese city of Dalian.

But Pyongyang had a long history of making overtures that ultimately came to nothing, he warned.

The Chinese regime has always been North Korea's biggest trading partner, providing food, energy resources, and other supplies to the North.
