N.Korean media urges S.Korea to formally end Korean War

Trump and Kim had met in Singapore on June 12 and signed a joint agreement, wherein the latter agreed to work for a "complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula" in exchange for security guarantees by the US.

The details of the Trump administration's internal takes on the negotiations with the isolationist state which has taken a pro-rapprochement stand this year were known from talks with officials of the White House, US State Department and others who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the Washington Post report said.

Follow-up talks this month between Pompeo and North Korean senior officials in Pyongyang had a rocky start, with North Korea accusing the United States of making "unilateral and gangster-like" demands. Over a period of weeks, he rallied U.S. allies and traditional foes alike - think China and Russian Federation - to enact the toughest sanctions ever imposed on North Korea.

"It's not on the radar, so to speak", the official said.

The delay angered US officials, who were under pressure to deliver given Trump's premature announcement on June 20 that North Korea had already "sent back" the remains of 200 soldiers. The Japanese leader could meet Kim at an eastern Russian Federation development forum in Vladivostok in September, where Kim and Putin may hold their summit. "Chairman Kim told not only President Trump, but (South Korean) President Moon that he was prepared to denuclearize", Pompeo said Friday.

Pyongyang has frequently expressed concern that without a nuclear deterrent it could face attempted regime change or other military action by the United States, particularly while the two countries are technically at war.

Shortly afterwards the suspect, a man in his late teens, fled in a 2015 Toyota Camry and was followed by police. Lopez said he did not know whether any shots had been fired by the police or suspect.

China, its biggest trading partner, enforced sanctions strictly in the second half of 2017, hurting North Korea's manufacturing sector.

It said the US would provide "security guarantees" for "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

North Korea has already criticized the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for not discussing the peace treaty during his visit to the country in early July.

A USA defense official, however, told AFP that the Pentagon was not closely tracking activities at Sohae in terms of how it relates to the denuclearization of North Korea.

Last week, Trump said there was "no rush" and "no time limit" on denuclearization negotiations. We have - we're just going through the process. "But the relationships are very good", Trump said last week. "There's no mistake about what the scope of denuclearization looks like", said Pompeo.

North Korea strongly denied the charges that made the USA blacklist the North as a terror-sponsoring state in 1988. Another Pyongyang propaganda website Meari recently demanded that Seoul "do its part" towards a declaration to end the war.
