  • [Top Story]After warm words, US tells Kim Jong-un that concessions will only come after denuclearisation09/21 10:00

    Hopes of rapid progress towards the denuclearisation of North Korea cooled on Thursday after the US pushed back against Kim Jong-un's promise to dismantle a nuclear test site if Washington first made concessions. Donald Trump and his secretary of state had both offered words of encouragement after Kim signed a joint statement with Moon Jae-in, the South Korean president, during three days of talks in Pyongyang this week. But that was followed by a more sober State Department briefing insisting nothing had changed in the US position and there could be no rewards for Mr Kim’s regime until it completed the denuclearisation process. Heather Nauert, a State Department spokeswoman, said, “Nothing can happen in the absence of denuclearisation. Denuclearisation has to come first.” Analysts have long pointed out that promises made by Kim offer little new, particularly on the issue of its nuclear weapons capability. Inside North Korea: fascinating images of the world's most secretive state That was not enough to prevent an initial positive reaction from US officials. Mr Trump described the joint declaration as “tremendous progress”. “Kim Jong-un has agreed to allow nuclear inspections, subject to final negotiations, and to permanently dismantle a test site and launch pad in the presence of international experts”, Mr Trump tweeted on Wednesday. “In the meantime there will be no rocket or ruclear testing”. Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, was equally bullish about the developments, saying he had invited Ri Yong-ho, the North Korean foreign minister, to a meeting during the United Nations General Assembly in New York next week. Beyond the pomp and pageantry, Moon is keeping delicate denuclearisation talks with North Korea on track “This will mark the beginning of negotiations to transform US-[North Korean] relations through the process of rapid denuclearisation of North Korea, to be completed by January 2021, as committed by Chairman Kim, and to construct a lasting and stable peace on the Korean Peninsula”, Mr Pompeo said in a statement. The demolition of a missile engine test site and a launch pad are not considered to be concessions because the North has already demonstrated that it can launch long-range ballistic missiles and has mobile missile launchers. The offer to shut down the nuclear plant at Yongbyon is also of limited significance because it is widely understood that Pyongyang is operating at least one secret uranium enrichment facility elsewhere. And while the North offered to dismantle the Yongbyon, it also added the caveat that it would only do so “if the US takes corresponding measures”. Washington’s insistence that the ball is in Mr Kim’s court is becoming increasingly unpopular in South Korea, however, with a new poll showing that six out of 10 people believe that additional cross-border exchanges should be permitted, along with economic cooperation, before North Korea carries out its promises to abolish its nuclear weapons.......Search More News

  • [World News]Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in visit Korea's spiritual birthplace as US sets deadline for denuclearisation09/21 04:50

    Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in visited the spiritual birthplace of the Korean nation Thursday for a show of unity after their North-South summit gave new momentum to Pyongyang's negotiations with Washington. On Wednesday North Korea's leader agreed to close the Tongchang-ri missile-testing site in the presence of international observers, a move the US welcomed by saying it was ready for immediate talks aimed at denuclearising the North. Pyongyang also said it could dismantle its best-known nuclear facility at Yongbyon, if the US takes "corresponding measures", as Kim and the South Korean president held their third summit this year. It is an important caveat, but the declaration appeared to break the logjam in nuclear discussions with Washington. President Donald Trump welcomed the move, tweeting that Kim had "agreed to allow Nuclear inspections, subject to final negotiations", adding: "Very exciting!" Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also praised the "important commitments", saying he invited his North Korean counterpart to meet next week on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, and representatives of both sides to meet "at the earliest opportunity" in Vienna, home of the International Atomic Energy Agency. President Moon collects water from Lake Heaven at the bottom of Mount Paektu Credit:  Getty Images AsiaPac Washington was ready to "engage immediately in negotiations" to achieve the North's denuclearisation by January 2021, Pompeo added - the end of Trump's first term. The process had stalled after the historic Singapore summit between Trump and Kim in June, when Kim declared his backing for denuclearisation of the peninsula but no details were agreed. Washington and Pyongyang have subsequently sparred over what that means and how it will be achieved, with the Trump administration consistently referring to the denuclearisation of North Korea specifically. For its part, Pyongyang - which wants a formal declaration the 1950-53 Korean War is over - has condemned demands for its unilateral disarmament as "gangster-like". Experts remain sceptical, pointing out that closing Tongchang-ri, also known as Sohae, would have no impact on the North's ability to manufacture rockets. Pyongyang has used several other locations for missile launches and has repeatedly said it has no need for further testing. Many also believe that apart from Yongbyon, the North also has covert nuclear facilities. "The North Koreans are offering gestures that mimic disarmament," arms control expert Jeffrey Lewis tweeted. "They don't meaningfully constrain North Korea's nuclear programme." Their main purpose, he added, was "to appease Trump, so that Moon and Kim can keep their engagement alive". "This is what an Israel-style deal looks like with North Korea: They pretend to disarm and we pretend to believe it." Moon and Kim have sought to strengthen the North-South relationship at their Pyongyang summit, agreeing that the North Korean leader will visit Seoul "at an early date". It would be the first such trip by a North Korean leader since the Korean War ended in an armistice, leaving the peninsula divided by the Demilitarized Zone and technically still in a state of war, and Moon said the historic journey could happen later this year. The two leaders also agreed to open a permanent facility for family reunions, work towards joining up road and rail links, and bid jointly for the 2032 Olympics. At a performance of the North's spectacular "Mass Games" propaganda display, Moon made an unprecedented address by a South Korean leader to a Northern crowd, telling them that Koreans had lived together for 5,000 years. "I propose we move forward toward the big picture of peace in which the past 70-year-long hostility can be eradicated and we can become one again," he said, prompting rapturous applause. On Thursday, Moon and Kim, accompanied by their wives, visited Mount Paektu on the Chinese border. Beyond the pomp and pageantry, Moon is keeping delicate denuclearisation talks with North Korea on track The 2,744-metre (9,003-foot) peak is considered sacred to all Koreans as the birthplace of Dangun, the legendary founder of the first Korean kingdom. According to Pyongyang's narrative, it is also where Kim Jong-un's father Kim Jong-il was born, at a secret camp where his own father, the North's founder Kim Il-sung, was fighting Korea's Japanese colonial occupiers. However, overseas historians say Kim Jong-il was born in the Soviet Union, where his father was in exile. South Korean tourists flock to see the mountain via China, but only a handful of Southerners have been granted access from the North Korean side, mostly for research purposes. Pictures showed Kim and Moon both in black coats on the crater rim, their clasped hands raised aloft, and the South Korean president expressed his hope that many of his countrymen would follow in his footsteps.......Search More News
