North Korea blowing up test sites, 'total denuclearisation' started


Exactly a week after the Singapore summit, Kim Jong-un made his third visit to China to meet with President Xi Jinping, highlighting an increasing trend of formal ties between the two countries.

Koryo Tours General Manager Simon Cockerell, too, told NK News on Wednesday afternoon that his company "had a tour group at Panmunjom both last week and this morning, both of whom reported the absence of anti-American propaganda material". The global community must avoid complacency with what minimal objectives have been accomplished and must recognize that, until it has achieved its end goals on the Korean Peninsula, China will quietly bide time, build up its military and economic capacity, and eventually challenge the United States.

Chinese media said Kim and Ri had been feted by their hosts who visited them at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse where they were staying and also had tea and lunch with each other.

"Consistent with President Trump's commitment and in concert with our Republic of Korea ally, the United States military has suspended all planning for this August's defensive "wargame" (Freedom Guardian)", Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said. Kim said he was willing to bolster bilateral cooperation. It was a clear sign of the restive state's ambitions to boost its economic engagement with Beijing, analysts said.

The pomp and circumstance looked geared toward showing off the major improvement in relations between the communist neighbours, along with China's important role in keeping North Korea on track.

However, leaders form Washington to Seoul have been impatient for tangible evidence that North Korea is beginning to dismantle its nuclear arsenal. "Maybe you end up with conflict, maybe you don't", he said.

"There is a regional effort, a sort of Northeast Asia coalition of make-believe, to maintain the fiction that the North Korea will de-nuke as long as Americans keep talking to it", Xie said.

His reinstatement in 2013 - on the death of Kim's father, Kim Jong-il - was seen as evidence of the country's new leader's economic ambitions.

WASHINGTON-The missile engine test site that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had reportedly promised to destroy is a major facility in the western part of the country that has been used for testing engines for long-range missiles, according to a USA official.

When the United States recovered 208 cases of remains from the North Koreans in the 1990s, in what became known as the "K208 cases", scientists found that they were extensively commingled, with the remains of at least 400 service members inside. His first stop was the Academy of Agricultural Sciences, . where he was accompanied by Cabinet Premier Pak Pong-ju and Pak Thae-song, the Workers' Party's Vice Chairman for Science and Education.

More Americans favor than oppose ending sanctions created to limit North Korea's economy (37 percent to 27 percent), and a large majority - 69 percent - say they'd favor a treaty marking an official end to the Korean War. "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen", Trump had initially said in response to reports that a warhead was developed by North Korea that could be mounted on a ballistic missile.
