 After the Gint meeting, U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo said the U.S. delegation was expected to visit the DPRK.


There is room for follow-up dialogue

Pompeo attended a high school event in Iowa on the 4th, referring to President Donald Trumps second meeting with North Koreas top leader Kim Jong-un last week, asking the students whether they were watching live television.

Weve made some progress, but we havent met our expectations... I think there is still much work to be done.

I am still hopeful, he said at another event in Iowa. Although I am not assured, we will return to this matter. I will send a delegation to Pyongyang in the coming weeks.

Trump and Kim Jong-un concluded their second meeting in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, on February 28 without reaching any agreement.

Reuters reported that there was room for follow-up talks between the two sides. Trump stressed that the DPRK would gain economic benefits by abandoning its nuclear weapons. The DPRK media did not mention the differences between the leaders of the two countries in their reports.

South Koreas Ministry of Defense and the United States Ministry of Defense announced Wednesday that the two countries decided to stop large-scale joint spring military exercises codenamed Key Decision and Vulture from this year, in order to create conditions for diplomatic efforts aimed at the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Cooperation promotes denuclearization

South Korean Unification Minister Zhao Mingjun said on May 5 that South Korea and the United States are holding initial consultations on the resumption of the operation of the Kaesong Industrial Park and the Korean Kumgang Mountains tourism projects; South Korea believes that these projects will help promote dialogue among all parties and create a favorable atmosphere for follow-up consultations.

Zhao Mingjun said that the sanctions against DPRK do not involve tourism projects, but the comprehensive restart of Mount Kumgang tourism requires the maintenance of local facilities, so it is necessary to relax sanctions in some areas. The ROK is considering phased measures and intends to discuss the lifting of sanctions with the United States and the international community.

South Korean media reported that the United States did not respond to the DPRKs security concerns when the leaders of the United States and DPRK met in Hanoi due to the disturbance of John Bolton, Assistant National Security Affairs of the United States President. Former South Korean Unification Minister Ding Se-hyun said at a seminar in Seoul on May 5 that the US and DPRK leaders did not reach an agreement in Hanoi and should blame Bolton for attending the next days meeting. Bolton is demanding more, and the DPRK is demanding that sanctions be lifted, Ding said. This has led to the current situation. South Korean President Wen Jianyin, chairing a national security conference on the 4th, said he hoped the DPRK and the United States would maintain dialogue and look forward to the DPRK and U.S. leaders meeting again and reaching an agreement at an early date. Wen Jianyin said at the graduation ceremony of a Naval School in Qingshannan Road on May 5 that easing military tensions between the two Koreas will help promote denuclearization of the peninsula and peacefully drive economic development.
