Pompeo in North Korea vows to get details of nuke commitment

Korean War

The top U.S. diplomat, who will be staying overnight in the North Korean capital for the first time, said he looked forward to a "very productive" encounter.

The President told me he believes that Chairman Kim sees a different, brighter future for the people of North Korea.

Trump and Kim Jong Un last month agreed to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, although they made no mention of how or when Pyongyang might give up its nuclear weapons program. "We will have good outcomes (at the Asian Games) if we join efforts", said Lee Moon-Kyu, a South Korean coach who led one of the women's teams at Wednesday's match. The regime vowed to obtain a submarine capable of launching a long-range ballistic missile before the Trump-Kim summit. The U.S. delegation was left waiting around for Kim Yong Chol to arrive, and there weren't enough seats at the table for the U.S. negotiators.

Tokyo has said it is ready to normalize ties with and provide economic support to North Korea following a comprehensive resolution of the nuclear, missile and abduction issues, according to the sources.

Officials were also expected to hash out the return of the remains of United States soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War.

Newly engaged Katharine McPhee shares how David Foster proposed
After the news of her engagement broke, McPhee used Twitter to address the reports with a single emoji and an Ariana Grande GIF. Songwriter David Foster is planning another trip down the aisle after asking Katharine McPhee to be his fifth wife.

But the statement the leaders signed was short on clear commitments. "Our policy toward North Korea has not changed, we're committed to a denuclearized North Korea".

It is important that any US negotiations are founded on a "solid understanding of the structure of North Korea's solid-fueled missile program" to avoid being duped by the country's propaganda efforts, Schmerler and Lewis wrote earlier this week on ArmsControlWonk.com.

She also denied that the USA has eased its demand for "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization", speculation that emerged after the State Department started defining its goal as the "final, fully verified denuclearization" instead.

On June 12, U.S. President Donald Trump and the North Korean dictator pledged the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula following a historic meeting between the two leaders.

Pompeo arrives in Pyongyang on Friday for a two-day visit.

Netflix is testing out a more expensive tier
Depending on the browser used, the Ultra plan was priced at both €16.99 and €19.99 when the website was accessed in the country. It appears that Netflix runs a test right now in Europe and possibly in other regions as well that unlocks a fourth plan.

South Korea's Defense Ministry said at the time that it "needs to find out the exact meaning or intention behind [Trump's] comments".

Mr Pompeo's upbeat mood appeared to continue following the two sides' first meeting, which lasted three hours. We'll see. All I can tell you is this. "Kim mentioned that Trump referred to him as "Rocket Man" when tensions ran high a year ago".

Officials believed North Korea was "positioning itself to extract every concession it can from the Trump administration - while clinging to nuclear weapons it believes are essential to survival", NBC News reported. Together with the United States, Japan has led an global pressure campaign against the North.

The U.S. military would want to keep THAAD at least through the end of the denuclearization process, expected to take several years, analysts and former officials say.

Talks held over south Syria towns
But half of the province, including part of the provincial capital of the same name, remains in the hands of rebels. The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that at least 120,000 Syrians have fled.
