Pompeo: North Korea wants USA economic help

"We will guarantee his safety

The North has threatened to pull out of an unprecedented summit between Mr Kim and United States president Donald Trump in Singapore on June 12th if Washington demands Pyongyang unilaterally abandon its nuclear arsenal.

Mr Trump had expressed pessimism about whether the summit with Mr Kim would take place, even as American officials pressed ahead with plans for a historic meeting on June 12 in Singapore. Shah noted that an advance team goes out ahead of all scheduled presidential teams.

Some in the United States government worry that Moon may be prepared to accept a less-stringent version of North Korean denuclearisation than Washington wants.

That was a reference to Libya's former leader, Muammar Gaddafi, who agreed to give up nuclear weapons in 2003 and was later killed by Western-backed rebels.

"This could be something that comes right to the end and doesn't happen", said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday he was "very hopeful" that the U.S. "It is indeed not our model". "I don't want to waste a lot of time, and I'm sure he doesn't want to waste a lot of time", he further said.

"While the U.S. has instinctive resistance against the North, it will realize that I'm not the type of person who would use nuclear weapons on the South, the Pacific or the U.S.", Kim told Moon at their April 27 summit. The eight South Koreans arrived in Wonsan on Wednesday, where they were forced to leave their radiation detectors, satellite phones and Bluetooth mouses before they all set off for the test site, according to South Korean media pool reports.

Past agreements with North Korea have resulted in many broken promises.

Many observers had argued before Mr Trump met Mr Moon that there was too much at stake for Washington and Pyongyang not to proceed with the Singapore summit.

"There are multiple components of their system that threatens America", Pompeo said, including missiles, rocket engines, production of fissile nuclear material, and the capacity to produce that fissile material.

It may be the fact that Kim read President Trump's "Art of the Deal", or Kim is just following the historic pattern of his dictatorial ancestors, but this is a tactic that has been anticipated by Trump and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in.

The former Central Intelligence Agency director, who has met twice with Kim since the start of April, told the committee that it's his hope that when Trump and Kim confer, "we can get the North Koreans to make this strategic shift about how best to serve the country - that the nuclear weapons program isn't in fact the thing that keeps the regime in power, but the thing that prevents the regime from being in a place it wants to be with economic success".

Kim appeared genuine and engaged in conversation, Pompeo said.

"We're moving along. We'll see what happens".

Mr Trump encouraged Mr Kim to focus on the opportunities offered by the meeting and to make a deal to abandon his nuclear programme, pledging not only to guarantee Mr Kim's personal security but also predicting an economic revitalisation for the North.

"The second meeting I think there was a little change in attitude from Kim Jong-un", he said.

The president said he hoped Chinese President Xi Jinping was actually committed to the goal of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, calling him a "world-class poker player".

Mr Trump said he was displeased by China's softening of border enforcement measures against North Korea.
