U.S. abruptly postpones top-level N. Korea talks

U.S. abruptly postpones top-level N. Korea talks

Trump's remarks came hours after the State Department announced a postponement of Thursday's meeting between U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Kim Yong Chol, a senior adviser to the North Korean leader.

The development comes amid strained ties between South Korea and the U.S. over how to negotiate denuclearisation with North Korea.

"I think we have to look at it as a part of the process of reaching complete denuclearization and setting up a peace regime", Yonhap cited the unnamed official as saying. "And we're prepared to do that in support of Secretary Pompeo", Dunford said. "The sanctions are on".

The sources told CNN that North Korea, for its part, is looking for the United States to offer something before moving forward, but that the USA has not been willing to give anything up first, such as easing the punitive sanctions levied on the Kim regime.

Trump suggested at a news conference Wednesday that a meeting between Pompeo and his North Korean counterpart, Kim Yong Chol, that was supposed to take place Thursday in NY would be rescheduled because of a conflict that he didn't explain.

"The fear from America's perspective would be that the South Koreans might go too fast and agree to things that would involve, for example, our troops, our economic postures that we wouldn't be prepared to give [at this stage], without perhaps getting significant concessions on reductions of weapons testing", retired U.S. Ambassador Kristie Kenney said Wednesday.

But it comes amid renewed doubts about the Trump administration's efforts to convince North Korea to abandon its nuclear arsenal in exchange for security guarantees and sanctions relief.

Trump also said he'll meet with Kim "sometime early next year". "Everything else remains completely on track".

Last Friday, North Korea's Foreign Ministry criticized the USA for its continued support of sanctions and hinted it may resume nuclear development.

Russian Federation and China repeatedly supported the gradual easing of United Nations sanctions against North Korea.

To that end, the US and South Korea announced last week the creation of a new working group to "strengthen our close coordination", including on "sanctions implementation and inter-Korean cooperation that comply with the United Nations sanctions", according to State Department deputy spokesperson Robert Palladino.

Pyongyang has been pushing for a formal declaration to end the 1950-53 Korean War and replace the armistice that stopped the fighting but left the combatants still technically at war.

Though some experts speculate the threat to build up nuclear forces could have been posturing by Pyongyang to gain leverage for the now-postponed talks, a source with knowledge of North Korea's position on denuclearization confirmed to CNN the Kim regime could change its stance on its nuclear program, if the U.S. does not alter its policy on easing economic sanctions.
