Japan ready to 'fully' back IAEA inspections in North Korea

Japan ready to 'fully' back IAEA inspections in North Korea

Xi praised Chung for achieving "positive results" and added that China "actively supports" improving relations between the two Koreas as well as dialogue between the USA and North Korea.

The pollster said public sentiment toward the North appeared to have warmed significantly since January, before the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games were held, when 90 percent of South Koreans said Pyongyang would never give up its nukes, No Cut News reported.

U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis is skeptical about President Trump's chances for success when he meets with the North Korean leader. The officials' comments on Sunday followed the surprise announcement last week that President Donald Trump agreed to meet the North's Kim Jong Un by May.

Mr Trump would become the first sitting United States president to meet with a leader of the reclusive country. But both his premise and his conclusion are wrong - dangerously wrong and catastrophically risky - and North Korea, through conversations with South Korean officials, reportedly indicated as much this week.

Both countries have worldwide reputations as mediators, and both played a role as members of the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission helping to regulate relations between the two Koreas after the 1953 armistice that paused - but did not officially end - the Korean War.

"Cooperation between the leaders of South Korea and Japan is important for the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and the resolution of the missile issue", Suh said. "Asked if the White House still expected the meeting to go forward, Press Secretary Huckabee Sanders said: "€We fully expect that it will".

At the same time, South Korea's relationship with the United States has not been great, and its relations with Beijing have soured over the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, a cutting-edge missile defense system.

"While US aircraft carriers have taken part in joint South Korea-US exercises in the past, it has been decided that none will be coming for the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle exercises", a US military official told Korea's Hankyoreh website on March 8, 2018.

Signing a peace treaty would require addressing issues regarding the USA military's presence in South Korea and its transfer of wartime operational control to South Korea and United Nations forces there, Koh said.

National Intelligence Service chief Suh Hoon, who visited North Korea with Chung, is in Japan and has already met Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono.

"We fully expect that it (the meeting) will (take place)".

"Let's be very clear", she said in a statement.

Mattis was among the advisers in the White House on Thursday when Trump made a decision to accept Kim's offer to meet.

Koh Yu-hwan, who teaches North Korean studies at Dongguk University in Seoul, said the regime has long sought a peace treaty to end the more than 60-year-old cease-fire between the two sides and help guarantee its safety.

Tillerson said several steps would be necessary to agree on the location and scope of the talks, adding later that a "neutral" site would be needed.
