The Yomiuri ShimbunWill the United States and North Korea be able to bridge differences in their respective standpoints over the North's denuclearization this time around?

While in the US view North Korea has yet to take concrete steps to give up its nuclear weapons, Pyongyang complains that Washington has done little to reciprocate for its freezing of nuclear and missile testing and dismantling of some facilities. Some experts say North Korea is trying to use the negotiations to weaken the sanctions and buy time to flawless its weapons program. He said Washington was willing to discuss "many actions" to improve ties and entice Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons and that Trump was ready to end the 1950-53 Korean War, which concluded with an armistice, not a peace treaty.

A year of mostly fruitless diplomacy has led to serious doubts about Mr. Kim's sincerity and Trump's ability to force North Korea to significantly reduce the threat its nuclear weapons pose to the region and world.

Paul Moore, an infosec consultant and CISO, warned : " Google's new PasswordCheckup logs *every* web address you login to". Well, Google has created a Chrome plugin that will report if login information has been stolen.

But progress has since stalled, with the two sides disagreeing over what that means.

Both Koreas have endorsed an end-of-war declaration as a trust-building measure that could move nuclear diplomacy forward.

Pyongyang has yet to take concrete steps in that direction, observers have said, and nuclear talks had been effectively deadlocked in the months after the Singapore summit.
