  • US Secretary of State Pompeo to meet North Korea's Kim Jong-un

Her comments came ahead of a visit on Sunday by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to North Korea, where he will meet strongman Kim Jong Un in an effort to further the denuclearization effort.

Separately, South Korea is proposing that the United States hold off on a demand for an inventory of North Korea's nuclear weapons and accept the verified closure of a key North Korean nuclear facility as a next step in the negotiations, Seoul's top diplomat said in an interview with The Washington Post.

"These conversations are going in the right direction and we feel confident enough to hop on a plane to head there and continue the conversations", department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told a regular news briefing.

Rep. Kim Sam-hwa of the center-right Bareunmirae Party said it was every Korean's wish to establish a peace regime on the peninsula through North Korea's irreversible denuclearization.

FireEye, which is staffed with a roster of former military and law-enforcement cyberexperts, conducted malware analysis for a criminal indictment by the Justice Department last month against Park Jin Hyok, the first time a hacker said to be from North Korea has faced USA criminal charges. Ironically, such a settlement can succeed only if the Trump administration's North Korea policy keeps failing. -North Korea relations, "especially if it were to go badly".

USA security firm FireEye raised the alarm Wednesday over a North Korean group that it says has stolen hundreds of millions of dollars by infiltrating the computer systems of banks around the world since 2014 through highly sophisticated and destructive attacks that have spanned at least 11 countries.


Following the initial announcement, Trump said the summit will happen "fairly quickly" and showed reporters a new missive he had received from Kim, describing it as an "extraordinary letter".

Citing his exchange of fiery rhetoric with Kim previous year, Trump also said the two were being "tough" over the North's testing of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles capable of reaching the U.S.

Many foreign experts say North Korea are likely running additional secret uranium-enrichment plants. Earlier, Trump had postponed Pompeo's trip, citing a lack of progress on denuclearization. -North Korea consensus on denuclearization is critical in meeting this commitment.

Trump last week slapped $200 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods and has accused Beijing of interfering in the upcoming United States election because of his hard line on trade.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told the United Nations last week that continued sanctions were deepening the North's mistrust of the United States and there was no way Pyongyang would give up its nuclear weapons unilaterally under such circumstances.

"They take their time to learn the intricacies of the organization", Joyce said.
