Korea Says He Supports Plan to Reduce DMZ Outposts

Last week, North Korea's official newspaper, The Rodong Sinmun, commented that the United States would play a key role in drafting an end-of-war declaration for the Korean War in order to establish long-lasting peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula.

In one of the most specific reports on Pyongyang's recent nuclear activities, the International Atomic Energy Agency observed actions consistent with the enrichment of uranium and construction at the country's main nuclear site. He accused the United States of being unfaithful to the commitments of a June summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump, in which they expressed an aspirational goal for a nuclear-free peninsula without describing when or how it would occur.

North Korea has insisted that any moves toward denuclearisation on its part must be on a step-by-step basis in return for concessions from the U.S. and its allies.

The top US commander in South Korea expressed support Wednesday for a plan to remove some guard posts from the tense border, saying it's a "reasonable" risk that may help denuclearization talks with the North.

North and South Korea have agreed to close some guard posts along their border on a trial basis, Seoul's Defence Minister told Parliament yesterday amid a rapid diplomatic thaw. The problem, he said, was that "the USA is demanding North Korea front-load vows to declare and accept inspections of its nuclear arms" before any easing of sanctions.

Ahead of a third planned summit next month, Moon has promised major changes created to keep the peace process on track. "It was hard for my mother and aunts to talk freely when several North Korean officials stationed themselves so close to our table, listening in to whatever we were saying".

Technically, the Korean War which broke out in 1950 has not ended, a 1953 armistice agreement stopped fighting but did not evolve into a legally binding peace treaty.

99-year old Han Sin-ja, aware that this would likely be their last meeting, gave advice to her two North Korean daughters, 72 and 71-year-old Kim Kyong Sil and Kyong Yong.

Around the same time, the U.S. moved to sanction companies based in Singapore, China and Russian Federation accused of violating restrictions on trade with Pyongyang, as Washington attempted to maintain its strategy of "maximum pressure" which the Trump administration has claimed let to the detente with North Korea in the first place. "There's no ballistic missiles going up, there's a lot of silence".

"Now I can go to the graves of my parents and tell them, "Father, mother, I met brother Jong Song and saw him alive". "The Korean War was something the Americans did". Trump is in the midst of escalating trade war measures against China, with threats of more to come.

Seoul's desire to continue ramping up economic engagement stems from Moon's insistence that doing so will benefit not only his country's northern neighbor but also South Korea itself.

Trump's focus on China feeds directly into the intense political infighting in Washington over unsubstantiated allegations of "Russian interference" in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The North's military has been referred to as an enemy ever since.
