Pres. Trump declares NKorea still poses "extraordinary threat"

Pres. Trump declares NKorea still poses

But efforts to recover and return other remains have stalled for more than a decade because of the North's nuclear weapons development and USA claims that the safety of recovery teams it sent during the administration of former President George W. Bush was not sufficiently guaranteed.

At their summit, Kim and Trump signed a pledge "to work towards complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", a stock phrase favored by Pyongyang that stopped short of longstanding United States demands for North Korea to give up its atomic arsenal in a "verifiable" and "irreversible" way.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's tour of Singapore's iconic landmarks such as Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands required no compelling narratives to explain more concretely to him the alternative path his state could pursue.

Highlighting this apparent gap between Trump's rhetoric and facts on the ground, the administration Friday cited the "unusual and extraordinary threat" from North Korea's nuclear arsenal to extend decade-old sanctions on Kim's regime in a statement to Congress.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo "will be meeting with them and talking with them at the earliest possible date" to implement what was agreed in Singapore, spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters, without providing further details.

The agency previously said that North Korea has informed officials they have many as 200 sets of USA remains from the Korean War.

What to Expect From the OPEC Meeting
Also supporting prices was a drop in Libyan supplies due to the collapse of an estimated 400,000-barrel storage tank. Iran has objected to having members with additional capacity such as Saudi Arabia fill Venezuelan output gaps.

"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

The US-based North Korea monitoring group 38 North said in an analysis at the end of last week there had been no sign of any activity toward dismantling of any missile test site.

"I am continuing for one year the national emergency with respect to North Korea", added the statement.

One does not need a calculation of the exponential exposure or advertising value to be convinced that Singapore has benefited from facilitating the Trump-Kim summit (Singapore may have gained over $700m in exposure as host: Analyst; June 14). "We advise the USA side to return to reason, and stop words and actions that harm itself and others". Going into the summit, Pyongyang repeatedly rejected unilateral nuclear disarmament.

Pompeo said USA allies and North Korea's neighbour and ally China were supportive of the U.S. policy of maintaining sanctions on Pyongyang until its denuclearisation was complete. Glaser said it was predictable Xi would want to be briefed by Kim directly about the North Korean leader's talks with Trump. "But we have to get him to keep it tough", Trump said.

Government and military officials in South Korea said Friday that the return of the remains is expected to take a significant amount of time given how many there are and that various ideas about the method of repatriation are being mulled.
