Trump says North Korea talks 'going well,' lashes critics

It will be Pompeo's first visit to North Korea since an unprecedented June 12 summit between President Donald Trump and Kim in which the North Korean leader agreed to "work toward denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

With U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expected to visit Pyongyang for three days from Thursday, it is also possible that he may meet with Unification Minister Cho, though local authorities refused to confirm any planned interactions between South Korea and the United States in North Korea. "If not for me", he tweeted, "we would now be at War [sic] with North Korea!"

The President was referring to the talks that Sung Kim, the U.S. ambassador to the Philippines, and his delegation had with North Korean officials over the weekend in Panmunjom, a village on the demilitarised zone separating the two Koreas.

President Trump said Tuesday that the United States would be at war with North Korea without his efforts and that conversations with the nation's leaders are "going well" - an assessment at odds with recent reports that North Korea is working to hide key aspects of its nuclear weapons program.

"We're continuing to make progress".

Ms Swaraj and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman were to travel to the U.S. to take part in the meeting with Mr Pompeo and Defence Secretary James Mattis. "The secretary of state will be there later this week to continue those discussions".

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert declined to comment on intelligence reports, but told reporters Tuesday, "We're all keeping a close eye - the USA government - keeping a close eye on North Korea, and the secretary has been very clear and very blunt with the North Koreans about what he expects". Either Kim Jong-un deceived President Trump or Kim does not control the military in North Korea.

US Chamber says $75 bn in US exports subject to counter-tariffs
This is higher than the 1 million barrels-a-day increase that OPEC countries have agreed on, sending oil futures on a decline. China, which has announced tariffs on $34 billion in American goods, is a critical soybean market for USA producers.

The Chemical Material Institute is known for making carbon composite parts for re-entry vehicles of solid-fueled missiles, Dave Schmerler, a research associate at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, said. He told VOA it is still "early in the process". "While the North Koreans were talking with the USA, this site was undergoing continued construction".

The White House has characterized ongoing meetings as positive but not commented on recent news reports of us intelligence assessments saying North Korea has been expanding its weapons capabilities.

At the time, two USA officials said the administration was expecting North Korea to return up to 200 sets of remains believed to be US servicemembers who died during the Korean War.

Further in addition to the known uranium-enrichment facility, some 60 miles north of Pyongyang, North Korea is also believed to have operated a secret underground uranium enrichment site known as Kangson, the daily said.

Earlier in Trump's presidency, many experts said his "maximum pressure" approach to the U.S. adversary actually made armed conflict significantly more likely.

The Stanford team has proposed a 10-year roadmap, based on its belief that "North Korea will not give up its weapons and its weapons program until its security can be assured".
