Pompeo says no timeline on North Korea negotiations

Donald Trump- North Korea news

In addition to toning down its anti-US rhetoric, North Korea has also reportedly transferred the remains of soldiers who died in the 1950-53 war to the border with South Korea.

The event usually features slogans and propaganda cartoons attacking the USA, participants raising their fists in defiance and even commemorative postage stamps showing the destruction of the US.

State media referred to Trump quite deferentially in their reports of the summit, calling him by his full name and adding the title of president of the United States of America - itself a somewhat jarring contrast to the way it normally spits out merely the surname of USA officials, with no titles.

In the past the rally has allowed North Korea to communicate its political message to the world, which has centred on grievances over USA policy in the region.

North Korea's state media were filled with reports, photos, and video of the June 12 meeting between Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim in Singapore.

In another sign of detente following the summit between leader Kim Jong-un and President Trump, North Korea has made a decision to skip one of the most symbolic and politically charged events of its calendar: the annual "anti-US imperialism" rally marking the start of the Korean War.

The prime minister also said at the ceremony the United States and South Korea have made a decision to suspend joint military exercises and the North and South agreed to reunite 100 individuals from each side during a family reunion late August.

But while both work to achieve the vague language of Kim's promise to "completely denuclearise the Korean peninsula", America's top United States diplomat refused to put a timeline on negotiations with North Korea contradicting a senior defence official who said Washington would soon present a timeline to North Korea with "specific asks".

"There always will be challenges and there is work to do, but none of this could have happened without the commitment of the two senior leaders", Pompeo said, "and so long as that commitment stays in place, the United States is prepared to do exactly what the president said, which is create a brighter future for North Korea and provide security assurances for the North Korean people".

"We hope that we will have an ongoing process of making progress", Pompeo said Sunday.

CNN said Pompeo suggested it was too soon to expect a detailed roadmap after 40 years of tensions but insisted that Kim had been "unequivocal" about his willingness to denuclearise.
