Pompeo plans to meet with Kim Jong Un again in Pyongyang

US Secretary of State Pompeo to meet North Korea's Kim Jong-un US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to North Korea for fresh denuclearisation talks

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters Tuesday that the secretary expects to meet with Kim in Pyongyang. Nauert indicated that the talk between both leaders will aim at Pyongyang's nuclear capability as one of the issues that will be discussed.

"We've made more progress than has been made in an awfully long time and, importantly, we have done so in conditions which continue to give us the opportunity to achieve the final goal", Pompeo said.

The meeting between Pompeo and Kim may also chart a possible second meeting between the two leaders. North Korea's foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, told the United Nations last week that "there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves first". That was Kim and Moon's third meeting this year as they work to resolve the nuclear standoff following a torrid run of North Korean nuclear and missile tests.

A South Korean government delegation arrived in North Korea on Thursday for a joint celebration of the anniversary of a 2007 summit and to possibly hold further peace talks.

US negotiators have tried to get North Korea to provide a list of nuclear facilities and weapons they want dismantled but it failed to secure an agreement even after Trump's meeting with Kim and three trips to North Korea by Pompeo.

Rep. Yoon Young-seok, a spokesman of the main opposition Liberty Korea Party, said in a statement that the two Koreas should reunify under the South's free democratic system and urged North Korea's complete denuclearization.

Liverpool's Naby Keita kept in hospital overnight after back injury against Napoli
Liverpool's passage to the Champions League knockout rounds last season went down to the final round of group stage matches. Lorenzo Insigne's dramatic late victor gave Napoli victory over Liverpool in their Champions League group game in Italy.

Critics have pointed out that the Singapore declaration contained no firm commitments from North Korea to dismantle its nuclear and missile programs and USA officials have expressed frustration at North Korea's evasion of sanctions.

Pompeo met with his North Korean counterpart, Ri Yong-ho, on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in NY last week.

"There is nothing the U.S. could get from sanctions and it is no [one] other than them who will be put at disadvantage", the Rodong Sinmun, the official mouthpiece of the ruling Workers' Party, said in an editorial.

"It is hard to know what is going on in North Korea, but what we can know is because a lot of countries in the world are trying to prevent North Korea from the world economy, this makes them extremely poor", Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science Andrew Hart said. "Our policy has not changed".

"They really have the potential" to be an economic power, Trump said. Stanford University scholars, including nuclear physicist Siegfried Hecker who visited North Korea's centrifuge facility at Nyongbyon in 2010, wrote earlier this year that North Korea is estimated to have a highly enriched uranium inventory of 250 to 500 kilograms (550 to 1,100 pounds), sufficient for 25 to 30 nuclear devices.
