Trump Brings Home Christians Held By North Korea

The US secretary of state has said the United States is willing to help North Korea with its economy if it gets rid of its nuclear weapons.

Opening the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to Christianity may prove to be a tall order for the first summit between the US and North Korea, however, in obtaining the release of Tony Kim, Kim Hak-song and Kim Dong-chul President Trump has once again proven himself to be a defender of persecuted Christians and, odd as it may seem, the best friend of religious liberty to inhabit the White House in a long time.

Abe also said global sanctions should remain in place against North Korea and any rewards must wait until Kim fully abandons his nuclear and missile programs.

He described his conversations with Kim as "warm" and said both had tried "our best to make sure that we were communicating clearly and had shared understanding about what our mutual objectives were".

And going back to "maximum pressure" if the talks fail is not really an option.

"We're not under any illusions about who these people are".

Since then he has regularly flown domestically, displaying a passion for air travel that is in stark contrast to his father and predecessor Kim Jong Il, who hated flying and only used high-security trains for overseas trips during his 17-year term.

"You hit singles, you hit doubles; every once in a while we may be able to hit a home run", President Barack Obama said of his own foreign policy.

The allure of economic help could be enough for Kim to accept terms to denuclearize, as Pompeo said that there's a chance that North Korea and the US could become "partners", according to the Los Angeles Times.

The accelerated pace of developments that could lead to weapons removal does not means US concessions were made, some observers say.

Chinese state media showed pictures of Kim smiling in an outdoors meeting with Xi, and the two leaders strolling along a waterfront.

Secretary Nielsen Almost Resigned After Tense Cabinet Meeting
Nielsen issued a statement Thursday night, but it does not directly address the report or that she came close to resigning. The secretary added, "Border security is the most basic and necessary responsibility of a sovereign nation".

Everything about that choice of words reinforces the near-consensus among North Korea watchers that Pyongyang's aim at the summit is to gain USA acknowledgement that it is a nuclear weapons power, and to be treated as such.

Former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter visited after leaving office, multiple rounds of non-proliferation talks have taken place, and a deal was even signed in 1994. To this, Kim will probably respond that securing any prisoner's release is hard, given North Korea's "independent" judiciary; but he will present himself as a humanitarian willing to do what he can to help.

This could be a significant change to the current state of relations between the two countries. "Clearly, the ballistic missiles program, as with Iran, with the intention of being a delivery system for nuclear weapons - that's gotta go".

Trump has vowed that he will not let that happen and has demanded that North Korea give up its nukes.

Journalists asked Pompeo what such a denuclearization would look like and if it meant carrying out inspections in North Korean nuclear plants.

After the end of the Korean war in 1953 the South, an ally of the U.S., embraced a capitalist philosophy.

It will also mean burning a large quantity of jet fuel, a refined oil product sharply limited by United Nations sanctions targeting North Korea' imports.

The foreign minister also ruled out any easing of sanctions against North Korea in the near future. "If he doesn't see material progress to that, there's not going to be a deal for a deal's sake", she said.

Trump's national security adviser John Bolton recently said, when it comes to denuclearization of North Korea, "We have very much in mind the Libya model". South Korea says North Korea is holding at least three of them.

While some White House aides characterized Trump's moves as evidence of bold thinking, there is also concern that he has little sense of the potential repercussions from some of his big moves, believing that if things don't work out, that he can always just reverse course.
