Pompeo says North Korea could get ‘unique’ security guarantees

Pompeo says North Korea could get ‘unique’ security guarantees

After Trump's stern speech about North Korea's nuclear weapon program last November, Kim's government responded by calling the US president an "old lunatic" - to which Trump responded by passively calling the North Korean leader "short and fat".

"I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people", Trump said at a press conference in Canada before departing the G-7 summit for Singapore.

"This is just a new beginning", said Trump while he was shaking hands with Kim. "There were obstacles, but we overcame them to be here". But the dramatic act of extending his hand to one of America's longtime adversaries will forever illustrate Trump's gut-driven, norm-shattering tenure.

He has said he would size up Kim "within the first minute" of their meeting. "We will all know soon whether or not a real deal, unlike those of the past, can happen!" A U.S. official says Monday that the leaders will meet for up to two hours before an expanded bilateral meeting with their respective advisers. The session will be expanded to a bilateral meeting and will include advisors.

Trump is to be joined by Pompeo, chief of staff John Kelly, national security adviser John Bolton and a few others. USA officials have said a best case scenario would be that it serves as a launching pad for negotiations that would provide Kim with physical security and his closed off nation with economic assurances in exchange for irreversibly dismantling his country's nuclear capabilities. One dispatch by the Korean Central News Agency said North Korea and the United States would exchange "wide-ranging and profound views" on establishing new relations, building a "permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism", achieving denuclearization and "other issues of mutual concern, as required by the changed era". The language in that document has been the fraught topic of discussion at the 11th-hour negotiations.

North Korea granted such access as part of a Clinton-era diplomatic deal and agreed to freeze its nuclear material production.

Trump and Kim may well end up branding tomorrow's summit a success. "I think it will be tremendously successful, and it's my honor and we will have a terrific relationship".

Trump made the unprecedented decision to meet with the leader of the rogue regime, a move all of his predecessors had avoided.

Kim, believed to be 34, is the third leader in a family dynasty that has ruled the communist state since it was founded in 1948.

Both leaders expressed optimism about their talks, yet each said they are prepared to walk out if things don't go well. He was originally scheduled to leave on Wednesday.

But other reports said it was Kim who chose to leave early, even though Trump was willing to stick around. Before he leaves he'll sit for an interview with his friend, the Fox host Sean Hannity, and convene a media availability for other reporters.

A U.S. official told CNN earlier the document would acknowledge the progress of the talks and pledge to keep momentum going. "You have to work with those people to make sure that they're not encouraged to go out and sell their skills to others", Albright said.

US President Donald Trump (R) waves as he and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un look on from a veranda during their historic US-North Korea summit, at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore on June 12, 2018. It was an extraordinarily compressed timeline for the landmark summit, one that left aides scrambling to initiate communication with the hermit nation.

But experts have expressed doubt that Pyongyang would abandon its hard-won nuclear gains after demonstrating rapid progress in their program with a series of missile and nuclear tests past year.

North Korea maintains an atrocious human rights record that is inextricably linked to its weapons proliferation. An American reporter asked Trump how he was feeling, followed by a North Korean reporter asking a question to Kim.

Critics of the summit leapt at the handshake and the moonlight stroll Kim took Monday night along the glittering Singapore waterfront, saying it was further evidence that Trump was helping legitimize Kim on the world stage as an equal of the USA president.
