Pompeo shrugs off North Korea's 'gangster' rebuke

The statement North Korea released after those meetings sharply criticized Pompeo for failing to follow through on the progress Trump and Kim had made in Singapore.

NORTH Korea has called high-level talks with a United State delegation led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo "extremely regrettable", contradicting Washington's account of how the meeting in Pyongyang went.

"We had expected that the USA side would offer constructive measures that would help build trust based on the spirit of the leaders" summit. we were also thinking about providing reciprocal measures, ' it said.

Pompeo added that the USA and world powers would maintain economic sanctions against North Korea until full denuclearization was achieved.

In criticising the talks with Pompeo, however, the North carefully avoided attacking Trump, saying "we wholly maintain our trust toward President Trump", but also that Washington must not allow "headwinds" against the "wills of the leaders".

The regime's belief that the weapons are needed to deter a U.S. attack dates back almost 70 years to the still-unresolved Korean War, and will take more than a handshake to dispel.

Pompeo, speaking at a press conference with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts, said he had "lengthy discussions" about complete denuclearisation with North Korean officials.

After two days of talks with senior officials, he said efforts to push Pyongyang towards abandoning nuclear weapons had worldwide backing.

In a statement issued by an unnamed foreign ministry spokesman and carried by the Korean Central News Agency, the North lashed out at the United States for seeking unilateral and forced denuclearization from Pyongyang. It wasn't my language; it was the language of Chairman Kim. "This began when the U.S. - the United States and Vietnam began working together to repatriate the remains of American service members lost in Vietnam", he said. -North Korea talks, as both sides were coming to the table with fundamentally different views of what they were bargaining with.

"There will be things that take place along the way that help achieve the security assurances that the North Koreans need".

Abraham Denmark, a senior defense official for East Asia under former President Barack Obama, said: "This is a rejection of US demands for unilateral denuclearisation by North Korea, and a clear message that the USA will need to give up more to make progress".

After the historic U.S. But on another, North Korea may be betting that Trump, the real estate developer-turned-president, will be more willing than his negotiators to ease off his administration's hard-line positions to make a deal.

U.S. State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert tweeted that Pompeo spoke briefly before leaving Pyongyang.

"So the world will see continued enforcement actions by the United States in the days and weeks ahead", he said.

However, in the days following the June 12 summit with Kim Jong Un in Singapore, Trump had already announced the return of the remains and the destruction of the missile facility had been completed or were in progress.

"We now have a meeting in (inscrutable) set up for July 12th that could move by one day or two, where there will be discussions between the folks responsible for the repatriation of remains, will take place at the border". He said he is "hopeful" there will be a "path forward" in negotiations with North Korea.

There was speculation that during his trip to Pyongyang, Pompeo would bring back the remains of some American soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War.

It dismissed Trump's unilateral order to suspend joint United States and South Korean war games as a cosmetic and "highly reversible" measure and criticised USA negotiators who "never mentioned" the subject of bringing the 1953 Korean War to a formal end with a peace treaty.

Despite the NBC report and North Korea's statement, Pompeo still claimed the rogue nation is committed to dismantling its nuclear program.
