N. Korea ready to discuss denuclearization with US

N. Korea ready to discuss denuclearization with US”

USA officials revealed to CNN reporters that North Korea has not only acknowledged the president's acceptance of Kim's unexpected invitation, but the rogue regime has also stated that it is willing to talk about denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, although there is a strong possibility that the two sides have a very different understanding of what is actually on the table.

The meeting is tentatively scheduled for late May or early June.

Trump agreed to meet with Kim after a South Korean envoy extended Kim's invitation to the president last month. The CIA has been using intelligence channels while the State Department has been in contact with North Korea by way of the North Korean mission to the United Nations in NY. "If there were such talks, we think it's a positive move".

South Korea's National Intelligence Service Chief Suh Hoon has been in close contact with his U.S. and North Korean counterparts, reported Korea Herald.

Analysts echoed that the efforts show that the USA intelligence agencies are taking the lead for summit preparations, but expressed skepticism whether such moves were headed by the North's Reconnaissance General Bureau, which deals with clandestine operations against South Korea. The representatives of the US and North Korea have already met in a third country. "It's a good signal that the talks are going back and forth (between the United States and North Korea)". It is more likely that the North's United Front Department would be in charge...

Since then, the North Korean leader has reaffirmed his commitment to discussing denuclearization as well as his willingness to hold summit talks with the South Korean and US presidents.

She added, "But we're going into this very cautiously, very much knowing that he's looked at the Iran deal, he's seen what he can get and he's seen how he can push through loopholes, and we're not going to let that happen again". Once a location is agreed upon the officials said that the date will be set and the agenda discussed in greater detail.

Later this month (April), Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae In are to hold what would be the three inter-Korean summit.
