High-level North Korean official arrives in NY

  • Top North Korean official meets Trump at White House

The president, however, did not want to raise expectations. The session is again scheduled for June 12 in Singapore.

"We're not going to go in and sign something on June 12th, and we never were".

On Friday, Mr. Trump also said he no longer wishes to use the term "maximum pressure", which is how the administration has been describing the US approach to North Korea. "I told them today, take your time, we can go fast or we can go slowly".

"I look forward to the day when I can take the sanctions off of North Korea".

Trump indicated he's continuing to use a carrot-and-stick approach to diplomacy.

Senior-level peace talks resumed at the border village between North and South Korea on Friday. "You're talking about years of hostility, years of problems / But I think you're going to have a really positive result in the end".

A top North Korean official has departed the White House after meeting with President Donald Trump amid negotiations over a high-stakes summit. "You're talking about 70 years". Jo presented Clinton with a letter inviting him to meet the North Korean leader in Pyongyang, an invitation Clinton ultimately turned down. It was not clear whether Trump would receive Kim Yong Chol in the Oval Office.


Shortly after leaving the meeting venue at the residence of the deputy U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Pompeo tweeted: "Substantive talks with the team from #NorthKorea".

But Kim Jong Un, in a meeting with Russia's foreign minister on Thursday, complained about "U.S. hegemonism", a comment that may complicate the discussions in NY. "Our two countries face a pivotal moment in our relationship, and it would be nothing short of tragic to let this opportunity go to waste, Pompeo had said in NY after meeting with Kim".

President Trump has wanted the meeting to pressure Pyongyang into giving up its nuclear weapons in return for relief from economic sanctions. How much? How much? "I purposely didn't open the letter".

The official arrived just after 1 p.m. ET on the White House South Lawn, where foreign dignitaries are typically received by the President. The President's hand size is something he has previously defended.

Trump also said the two did not talk about human rights. And, yes, of course, there was a picture of that historic summit.

Asked whether officials would formally reschedule the summit after Trump's talk with the North Koreans on Friday, Pompeo said, "Don't know the answer to that".
