North Korea Denuclearization Has Already Started, Says Trump

Hush-hush meet North Korea's Kim Jong Un lands in Beijing for two-day visit reports Chinese media

But it's unclear what Trump meant when he went on to say "it was actually four of their big test sites".

In May, prior to the summit, North Korea demolished tunnels at its sole underground nuclear test site, although outsiders have not inspected the result.

At the Cabinet meeting, Trump also referenced other concessions North Korea has supposedly made: "They've already blown up one of their big test sites". It has not been confirmed whether the North Korean leader was on board. "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea", Trump wrote on Twitter June 13.

South Korea uses a computerized lottery to pick participants for the reunions, while North Korea is believed to choose based on loyalty to its authoritarian leadership.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo "will be meeting with them and talking with them at the earliest possible date" to implement what was agreed in Singapore, spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters, without providing further details.

On Tuesday, Kim and Xi were reported by North Korean media to have reached an understanding on the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula after discussing the outcome of the US-North Korea summit.

The testing site in question is in Ch'olsan County, North Pyongan province, and is sometimes is referred to as the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground, according to an administration official. USA officials, however, have cautioned that such actions are reversible.

"Personalities can change. Maybe you end up with conflict".

In a series of tweets following the summit, Trump said that denuclearization by North Korea was already underway and Americans could "sleep well tonight".

Trump also prematurely claimed the return of remains of USA servicemen missing from the 1950-53 Korean War. Going into the summit, Pyongyang repeatedly rejected unilateral nuclear disarmament.

Signs were detected that high-ranking officials from North Korea arrived in Beijing.

The pivot to economic reform was championed by leader Kim Jong Un in the DPRK's May 2016 congress and has seen posters promoting North Korea's missile and nuclear capabilities replaced with ones advocating for increased industrial production.

"That's OK. That's OK".

The US has said that there will be no sanctions relief until Pyongyang's denuclearization.

North and South Korea agreed Friday to resume reunions for families separated by the Korean War in August - the first such meetings since 2015 and the latest step in a remarkable diplomatic thaw on the peninsula.

A USA official had said Tuesday, June 19, that Pyongyang may soon begin returning remains from among up to 200 sets the North says it has recovered.
