Kim summit a chance to showcase Vietnam’s development model: PM

Davidson said tensions with North Korea had declined since it halted nuclear and missile testing in 2017 and that it had taken some denuclearization steps, most notably the destruction of tunnels at it nuclear test site.

USA and North Korean officials are set to hold more talks next week but hopes for concrete steps toward North Korea's denuclearization are fading. A top US commander says he's seen little to no change in North Korea's military readiness or a slowdown in its nuclear weapons program since President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un met for nuclear talks past year.

How much would you say has been done and which of those does Biegun mean when he says he hopes to make progress?

As Vietnam prepares for the summit, its reform model is being widely touted as the economic path for impoverished and isolated North Korea to follow. Ah, I see you have just taken delivery of a S600 armoured Mercedes-Maybach, apparently customised by an American company, shipped to China and then taken to your compound in Pyongyang. Do you think that is something that could come up in the next summit? His comments seem to go against his commander-in-chief, but does he have a point?

4 - Despite optimism expressed by Trump and the White House, one of Trump's top military officials, Admiral Philip Davidson, who heads the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, has issued a statement to a senate committee concluding that it is unlikely North Korea will give up all of its nuclear weapons or production capabilities, but seeks to negotiate partial denuclearization in exchange for U.S. and worldwide concessions.

Davidson also noted that North Korea had demanded "corresponding" USA steps and that Kim had warned in a New Year speech of a potential "new path", which could indicate an eventual return to weapons testing, if he was not satisfied with the negotiations. Reports first surfaced yesterday, but further sources indicate plans are in the works.

South Korea and North Korea join Mumbai, Shanghai, Melbourne, Johannesburg and North Rhine-Westphalia as potential bidders for the summer games.

A top US commander said Tuesday that he has not seen any effort by North Korea to curtail its nuclear weapons program since President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un met for nuclear talks a year ago. The North Koreans apparently focused on how Kim will get around Hanoi as well as security and protocol issues.

We must remain vigilant to the threat North Korea still poses to the United States and the worldwide community.

"With only two weeks until the summit, it will be hard to resolve all the tricky issues, but there's a chance if we can agree on a timeline (for denuclearization)", a South Korean delegation member quoted Biegun as saying.
