Ex-diplomat Thae Yong-ho: North Korea likely to limit denuclearization

15 May 2018, 11:55 | Glen Norman

So, for the North Koreans can open up great prospects.

The Panmunjom Declaration was announced on April 27, after the third and historical inter-Korean summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and top North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Thae Yong-ho, the former diplomat who kept a low profile during the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, told reporters in Seoul Monday the North Korean leader is more likely to opt for "sufficient, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization", rather than complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization, or CVID. But fundamentally it would mean accepting North Korea as a nuclear power.

Alves out of World Cup as Neymar nears return
Brazil starts its World Cup campaign against Switzerland on June 17, followed by Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E. Alves , who has been capped 107 times for his country, had been considered a certainty for selection.

When asked about the president's contrasting stance, White House Assistant Press secretary Raj Shah said it was due to Kim's actions in "good faith".

During a central committee meeting of the Workers' Party last month, Kim vowed to focus on boosting the North's economy, which has been crippled by tightened global sanctions, while suspending nuclear and missile tests and closing a key atomic experiment facility.

A senior North Korean defector on Monday said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's ultimate goal remains to become a nuclear-armed state. While the tragedy of that situation only serves to further highlight the ruthlessness and brutality of a regime which continues to have little to no regard for the rule of law or basic human rights, what we witnessed this week was an important first step to what may very well serve as a larger conversation for saving the lives of millions of North Koreans, South Koreans and individuals around the globe. Concerned neighbor South Korea is also sending their deputy nuclear envoy to Vienna this week to discuss the initiatives with the International Atomic Energy Agency. "If North Korea has really chose to denuclearise, it has no reason not to invite them". Such an assurance is unlikely to be given by the nuclear-countries.

At a party meeting last month, Kim proclaimed that the development of the North's nuclear force was complete and promised no more nuclear or missile tests.

Kim, who picked Beijing to make his maiden official trip overseas in March, has also invited Xi to visit North Korea. According to Bolton, Trump has been extensively preparing by speaking with advisers, "different people, foreign leaders, (and) he had an extensive conversation with (President) Xi Jinping of China earlier this week".

North Korea has scheduled the dismantlement of its nuclear bomb test site for sometime between May 23-25 in order to uphold its pledge to discontinue nuclear tests, the country's state media reported on Saturday a month ahead of the summit with the United States.
