Moon calls for all-out efforts to support US-NK dialogue
Mar 05, 2019, 00:54
The announcement came as Kim makes his way back to Pyongyang following talks with US President Donald Trump in Vietnam, where the two sides failed to sign an agreement on denuclearisation or easing of sanctions on North Korea.
National security adviser John Bolton on Sunday defended President Trump's second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying the president was right not to make a deal that wasn't in the best interests of the United States.
"Some really bad things happened to Otto - some really, really bad things - but he tells me he didn't know about it, and I will take him at his word", President Trump said after his latest summit with Kim.
At the meeting, South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said the proposed talks, which could include civilian experts from the United States and South Korea, would help settle differences over how much sanctions relief Washington should provide to North Korea in exchange for nuclear disarmament steps.
North Korean foreign minister Ri Yong Ho however disputed the U.S. account, saying Pyongyang offered to dismantle all "nuclear production facilities in the Yongbyon area" in exchange for partial sanctions relief.
Bolton said the leaders left on good terms and that Trump made an important point to North Korea and other countries that negotiate with him.
"I tried to watch as much as I could", Trump said.
Moon has prioritized stabilizing bilateral relations with North Korea amid the larger nuclear negotiations between the USA and North Korea, saying inter-Korean reconciliation will drive progress in nuclear talks.
Mr Bolton was also asked if he takes North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at his word that he didn't know of Mr Warmbier's suspected torture. Kim will be able to portray himself to his people and supporters as the charismatic head of a nuclear-armed power, not an worldwide pariah that starves its citizens so it can build weapons.
He also told CBS's Face the Nation, "The president held firm to his view".
Bolton's evocation of progress was dismissed by leading Democrats, however, including House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff, who described the Hanoi meeting as a "spectacular failure".
And Bolton said Trump has "turned traditional diplomacy on its head, and after all in the case of North Korea, why not?" Obviously, it was covered differently by the USA networks.
The Pentagon and the South Korean military confirmed on Saturday they were ending large-scale joint spring exercises. But his call for partial sanctions relief to encourage nuclear disarmament steps by North Korea has caused disagreements with Washington, which does not want to give up what it sees as its main leverage with the North.
"I give my advice to the president", he later added.
"People in the media seem to have the impression administration officials kind of comment from the distance as if I were a Fox News contributor as I used to be". McCarthy was on ABC's "This Week", and Schiff was on CBS.
