North Korea seen 'cautious' in announcing stance over upcoming summits: Seoul

North Korea seen 'cautious' in announcing stance over upcoming summits: Seoul

North Korean media have reported the South Korean visit, but no details of the talks.

On Friday, President Trump took the unprecedented step of accepting a proposal from Kim Jong-un to meet in person by May of this year to discuss North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

Dutch Ambassador Karel van Oosterom, who chairs the council's North Korea sanctions committee, told reporters "we have to continue implementing the sanctions as they stand".

To enlighten them, Trump is: not a politician and not going to keep doing the same failed policies of Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama with North Korea, and a whole lot more; a bold leader who has done what it takes to get North Korea to offer true denuclearization and perhaps take on a vision of becoming like South Korea and join with the US to create a better state for its people; a brilliant deal-maker who says what people don't want to hear and pushes for a truly win-win deal; a leader who will take bold and unpopular actions; and a man who will listen to a variety of points of view and does not want only yes men around him.

North Korean media has refraiend from reporting on Pyongyang's upcoming summits with Seoul and Washington, a Seoul official said Monday.

"I feel they're approaching this matter with caution and they need time to organize their stance". "We give them that and they do the nasty stuff".

Japan has welcomed the Trump-Kim meeting announcement, but stressed that Pyongyang must take "concrete actions" for talks to be meaningful.

Our diplomats in Pakistan facing tremendous harassment
On the other, Pakistani diplomats in Delhi allege that they and their families are being followed by Indian security personnel. They said that all decisions about missions are taken on the basis of reciprocity.

News of possible talks has been a dramatic turnaround from fears of war over North Korea's development of nuclear-tipped missiles capable of hitting the United States.

Chung said South Korean government officials "believe that various advances toward achieving the goal of peace and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula were made with active support and contribution from President Xi Jinping and the Chinese government".

"We look forward to the smooth [talks between the two Koreas] and dialogue between North Korea and the U.S.", Xi was quoted as saying. -South Korean military exercises.

The story so far: President Donald Trump accepted North Korea's invitation for direct talks with Kim Jong Un, to be held by May.

China fought alongside North Korea against the US-led forces in the Korean War, but relations have been testy since the North's nuclear plan started to pick up pace, and Mr Xi and Mr Kim have reportedly never met.

US national security adviser H.R. McMaster briefed UN Security Council envoys in NY on Monday.

During the meeting with the ambassadors, McMaster pointed to three United Nations sanctions resolutions adopted by the council as key in the campaign to bring North Korea to the negotiating table, according to a council diplomat.

MOTORSPORTS: Bourdais snatches IndyCar victory in St. Pete

Suh is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Tuesday.

Trump last week agreed to meet with Kim by the end of May to discuss Pyongyang's denuclearisation - which it put on the table in exchange for security guarantees - and predicted the talks would be a "tremendous success".

To take just one recent example: In 2003, Muammar Qaddafi took the US up on its "denuclearization for security" deal - only to be tortured and killed eight years later by rebels whom the USA government had backed.

According to a South Korean presidential office source, Suh told Kono that the North Korean leader made no mention of the abduction issue.

In Geneva, the United Nations investigator on North Korea told the world body's Human Rights Council that any progress in the nuclear and security dialogue must be accompanied by talks on human rights violations, including political prison camps.

The South Korean leader might offer to reopen the Kaesong industrial center, which was closed after a North Korean nuclear test in 2016.

Rhetoric in the North's state media has been tame, however, compared to threats past year that Pyongyang would fire missiles into the vicinity of the USA territory of Guam if provoked.
