Pompeo says won't put timeline on North Korea denuclearization steps

North Korea news- Putin

The decision comes after the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, met Donald Trump in Singapore this month in a historic summit.

Referring to Trump's decision to suspend joint military exercises with South Korea, which North Korea has long denounced as provocative, Pompeo told CNN this move would last "only so long as there is a good faith negotiation progress, productive results being achieved".

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said he will not put a timeline on negotiations for North Korea's denuclearization, contradicting a senior defense official who said Washington would soon present a timeline to North Korea with "specific asks".

Lee also said Monday he has confirmation North Korea is in the process of repatriating the remains of USA troops from the Korean War. "We hope that we will have an ongoing process of making progress".

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un meet in a one-on-one bilateral session at the start of their summit at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa, Singapore June 12, 2018.

"Japan should stop its large-scale military drills and the boosting of its military capacity aimed at attacking (Korea), scrap its hostile policy against us, break with the past and show its sincerity towards peace", it said in a commentary.

"Any statements by DoD personnel regarding the DPRK are exclusively in reference to the military aspects of the negotiations", White added, mentioning the "indefinite suspension of major exercises or logistical support for the dignified transfer of remains". He also reaffirmed his pledge to give up nuclear arms, and the United States on Friday said it would halt some joint military drills on the peninsula over the next three months in support of diplomacy.

Japan started civilian evacuation drills a year ago as North Korea test-fired numerous missiles near, and over, some Japanese islands.

North Korea's state-run media is broadcasting the message of relaxed tensions across the country.

CNN said Pompeo suggested it was too soon to expect a detailed roadmap after 40 years of tensions but insisted that Kim had been "unequivocal" about his willingness to denuclearise.

Singapore, an affluent financial hub, was seen as a good choice for the summit due to its warm ties with both the United States and North Korea, and reputation for strict order.

It would enable 100 South Korean people, mostly elderly ones, to get together with their families across the border, decades after being separated by the 1950-53 Korean War. "We have a great chairman, Kim, we have great chemistry".
