SEONGNAM, South Korea, June 14 (Yonhap) -- North Korea is expected to take measures to denuclearize within the next two to three weeks following this week's historic summit between Washington and Pyongyang in Singapore, an expert on North Korea said Thursday.
Former Unification Minister Lee Jong-seok, currently a senior researcher at the private think tank Sejong Institute, made the remark during a forum hosted by the institute in Seongnam, just south of Seoul, to analyze the outcome of the Tuesday summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
Lee also took a view that the United States, in line with the North's implementation of such measures, will come up with rudimentary steps it could take to ease economic sanctions on the North and normalize its relations with Pyongyang, expecting that Washington and Pyongyang will reveal details not included in the accord released by the two countries after the Singapore summit.
The institute's chief, Paik Hak-soon, claimed that "the concept of CVID is about how to implement complete denuclearization and thus the elements of verification and being irreversible are auxiliary concepts under CVID."

This is a joke. Keep you gun under the poker table , Mr. President. This little fat sociopath will not denuke!!
Yeah, we’ll know in a month if NK is toeing the line.
I think he just might.
I think he is looking at the benefits of globalization.
Then he might (eventually) with another administration, in different circumstances, think about re-nuking.
But I think he might just be serious.
It looks like North Korea is coming through with a ‘major’ denuclearization step for Trump
Want to bet? How much ?
Trump certainly don’t need your advice as he’s doing historically well without people like you barking from the sidelines.
Now read the article.
He is doing a great job. But he better start protecting his office or they will eat him alive.
Could that country turn around 180 in say, 10 years? Fat boy will still be young. Get credit for fast growth as the people are ‘disciplined’. Scared is the word. Next an immediate influx of money by taking in all illegal immigrants in our prisons for say, $10/yr. Save us big time. We owe these illegals nothing. They can build the condos on the beaches.
I’m betting Kim is serious . He’s seen the light so to speak . He’ll become even richer if NK joins the modern world and still - at the very least - be a figurehead .
It will not happen. We are like a bunch of old women if we believe that nonsense. Wanna bet?
Yes, I imagine the President knows just a wee bit more....
Well, we’ll see. I have come to believe, whether it’s correct or not, that China has put pressure on NK behind the scenes.
I’ll bet you insisted that the Iron Curtain would never come down and the Soviet Union wouldn’t dissolve.
How much time have you spent on the Korean peninsula?
Lets see the specifics. Lets not get ahead of ourselves. Lets get a commitment to have them give immediate access to nuke inspectors, seasoned, in tow with fluent, capable Korean analysts from DOE, DIA and CIA. They must turn over sine nukes to our team PHYSICALLY. They must surrender them. Create a serious litmus test they must pass and in no short order we will know if they are jacking us around as endemically in the past. This needs to be established up front with no delay or excuses. Otherwise, the deal should be called off at once
We need to set up a betting pool on this topic. I think he will denuke. He has no choice. Trump isn’t Obama and he knows it.
Trust but verify. Always wise
