United Nations exempts North Koreans meeting with Trump from sanctions

President Trump met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday

President Trump met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday

Those remarks came days after North Korea threatened to pull out of the summit altogether if the USA continued to demand the "unilateral" surrender of its nuclear weapons. He's said he will succeed where his predecessors failed in persuading North Korea to give up its ambitions to become a nuclear superpower. "It could very well be June 12", the president told reporters Wednesday afternoon as he left the White House on his way to NY. "The American people are counting on us to get this right".

North Korea's last-minute acceptance of South Korean reporters came amid concerns that Kim was starting to back away from his promise to scrap the nuclear program, which it has pursued in defiance of years of UN Security Council resolutions.

Pompeo said a US -led sanctions pressure campaign on Pyongyang would not be eased until North Korea gives up nuclear weapons and that the United States had no intention of making concessions to Pyongyang.

"Bolton meant how Gaddafi allowed the United States to pack up and take away his nuclear-weapons-related equipment".

Trump said that while the U.S.is still preparing to sit down with Kim - and even offer him protection in exchange for ramping down the North Korean nuclear program - he acknowledged that things could change. "A number of discussions have taken place below the foreign minister level", Pompeo said.

Last week Kim, upset over US-South Korea military drills and indelicate comments by US national security adviser John Bolton, threatened to pull out of the June 12 summit, and Trump admitted yesterday the meeting was in doubt.

Washington is not meant to make concessions to Pyongyang during the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and the DPRK's top leader Kim Jong Un slated on June 12 in Singapore, he added.

The spat between the U.S. and North Korea over what denuclearisation means raised questions about how clear Pompeo had been in his two meetings with Kim at Easter and earlier this month.

Talks between the Koreas will likely resume after Friday, once Max Thunder finishes, said Moon's media secretary, Yoon Young-chan.

On the other hand, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo adopted a more positive stance by stating that the USA is continuing their preparations as the summit is going to happen.

For starters, there'd be the craved photo of him shaking hands with a sitting U.S. president.

And the Post reported Trump reassured Kim of his safety. "But if we make a deal, I think Kim Jong-un is going to be very, very happy".

The Singapore meeting failure could serve as a much-needed reality check on negotiating with North Korea.

A failed summit would damage Trump's self-promoted image as a master deal-maker.
