The DPRK will abandon nuclear weapons, on one condition

North Korean athletes arrive in the South for Paralympics

Security guarantees have been a part of past negotiations between North Korea and the U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush both tried to bargain with written assurances that said the U.S. wouldn't attack the North.

Japan has responded cautiously to the South Korean announcement of summit talks, saying Tokyo's policy of keeping maximum pressure on North Korea is unchanged.

He noted he has no plans to ease sanctions against Pyongyang, and sought the opposition's cooperation on the summit.

Seoul's national security director Chung Eui-yong on Tuesday returned from a two-day trip to North Korea.

Also during the news conference with Löfven, a Swedish reporter asked Trump about the threat of Russia interference in the upcoming U.S. midterm elections.

The agreement came on the heels of a visit made by a 10-member South Korean delegation led by Chung to the DPRK capital Pyongyang on Monday in hopes of encouraging the DPRK and the United States to talk to one another.

"The summit will not be affected by the South Korea-U.S. joint military drills on the Korean Peninsula set for April". He added dismantling the program is the end goal.

Donald Trump, press trade jabs at annual Gridiron dinner
Attorney Jeff Sessions, who made a surprise appearance at the Gridiron Dinner: "I offered him a ride over and he recused himself". He's going to be president? A lot of people said I wouldn't be able to do so well after losing my so-called chief strategist.

South Korea says North Korea has agreed to impose a moratorium on tests of nuclear weapons and missiles if it holds talks with the United States. The rest were Yoo Seong-min of the minor opposition Bareunmirae Party, Cho Bae-sook of the Party for Democracy and Peace and Lee Jeong-mi of the progressive Justice Party.

The UN Security Council has imposed tough economic sanctions aimed at choking off revenue to Pyongyang's military programmes after Kim's regime carried out a sixth nuclear test and a series of advanced missile launches.

A rare degree of optimism is manifest in the response of the presidential office ~ "The North will have no reason to possess nuclear weapons should the safety of its regime be guaranteed and military threats against North Korea removed".

Chung said North Korea might be willing to negotiate relinquishing its nuclear weapons.

The two leaders will hold talks at Panmunjom on the highly militarised border.

The two defendants, Doan Thi Huong, a 29-year-old Vietnamese citizen, and Siti Aisyah, 25, of Indonesia, have pleaded not guilty in the killing of the half brother, who had been returning home to Macau and was traveling on a passport in the name of Kim Chol. As long as the U.S. claims it needs to keep - and now upgrade - its nuclear arsenal of 7,000 warheads for "defense", then the DPRK is a thousand times more justified in having its own deterrent of a few dozen bombs.

The South's officials have stressed the talks were only preliminary, but the parties had "somewhat shared" views on some issues.
