Researchers find 20 secret missile sites in North Korea

Last week, US President Donald Trump announced what many had long expected: he will once again meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Kim Yong-chol is vice chairman of the North's ruling Workers' Party's Central Committee who traveled to Washington to deliver a letter from Kim Jong-un to Trump.

Pompeo didn't elaborate on how precisely Washington wants to "reduce" the North's capacity, but the remarks came on the same day The New York Times reported that officials from both countries were now negotiating a "freeze" of the North's nuclear fuel and weapons production so that the country's arsenal doesn't grow while denuclearization talks drag on.

Amid bipartisan domestic concern, including Vice-President Mike Pence's public warning just two days earlier that Pyongyang had failed to embark on "concrete steps" to denuclearise, Trump's decision to move forward with a second summit at the end of February is risky.

Kang and Pompeo assessed the North Korean official's trip to the U.S.as "successful" and agreed to cooperate closely on a second Pyongyang-Washington summit so that it will lead to the faithful implementation of the agreement made at the previous one in Singapore on June 12 past year, according to the ministry.

Sweden has had diplomatic relations with North Korea since 1973 and is one of only a few Western countries with an embassy there.

"North Korea 'basically wants to trade away things they won't do in the future, or to give up things from the past they don't need anymore, while not negotiating over things like this, their actual capabilities", said Cha, a former National Security Council official focused on Asian affairs.

Can Serena Williams take the title in women's singles this year's Australian Open? I knew she's a very tough opponent. The Williams sisters played each other twice in 2018, with Venus winning at Indian Wells and Serena winning in NY .

Despite upbeat US comments there has been no indication of any narrowing of differences over USA demands that North Korea abandon a nuclear weapons program that threatens the United States and Pyongyang's demands for a lifting of punishing sanctions.

"While diplomacy is critical and should be the primary way to resolve the North Korean nuclear problem, any future agreement must take account of all of the operational missile base facilities that are a threat to US and South Korean security", the report further said.

Experts have said there has been no demonstrable progress since the first summit in Singapore in June. The White House declined to comment.

It houses a regiment-sized unit equipped with Nodong-1 medium-range ballistic missiles, the report added.

He said the North is likely to offer to halt its production of nuclear weapons and missiles, including the dismantlement of its missile engine test facility in Dongchang-ri and nuclear facilities in Yongbyon in the presence of outside inspectors.
