Seoul optimistic about "secret, direct contact" between USA and North Korea

China Hopes N. Korea Leader's Summits With Trump, Moon Will Defuse Tension

South Korea had contended that Kim was willing to do so and had also vowed to suspend nuclear and missile tests.

North Korea has told the United States for the first time that it is prepared to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula when North Korean leader Kim Jong Un meets President Donald Trump, a USA official says.

Experts have urged the Government to engage in diplomacy with the North Korean regime to keep Kim from triggering an global nuclear conflict.

USA media outlets reported over the weekend that North Korea has told the U.S.it is ready to talk about giving up its nuclear weapons program. "There would be no limits to combat in that situation, and they'd be all in".

ASU's Center of the Future of War co-director Daniel Rothenberg said: "The possibility of war on the Korean Peninsula is one of the most unsafe situations in the world and could lead to nearly unimaginable devastation and human suffering". The agenda of the meeting is not yet known, and North Korea has not been clear about what steps it is willing to take to move toward denuclearisation. "It's a good signal that the talks are going back and forth (between the U.S. and North Korea)".




She added, "But we're going into this very cautiously, very much knowing that he's looked at the Iran deal, he's seen what he can get and he's seen how he can push through loopholes, and we're not going to let that happen again". "Certainly, the rhetoric has calmed down just a little bit".

South Korean emissaries had presented Kim Jong Un's (left) invitation to meet with U.S. president Donald Trump (right). The North has yet to officially confirm such intent or Kim's interest in meeting Trump.

The private organisation, which monitors nuclear threats against the U.S., said the hermit state remained a huge threat and should not be trusted.

China and Russian Federation are both permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, which has imposed sanctions on North Korea in a bid to force negotiations with Pyongyang.
