    SEOUL (NYTIMES) - A senior American negotiator arrived in North Korea on Wednesday (Feb 6) to sort out crucial details for a nuclear summit meeting in Vietnam between United States President Donald Trump and the North's leader, Kim Jong Un, with only three weeks to go before the talks take place.

    KIM Jong-un has threatened to kill his own citizens if they switch on South Korean tv shows. A source told Radio Free Asia’s Korean service that authorities have launched a crackdown on the illegal activity including a death sentence threat for those found breaking the law. The insider said: “In a recent lecture, they told us they are aware that a growing number of people are able to manipulate the frequencies to watch South Korean TV programmes. “They said that regardless of any individual’s status, those caught in violation could be executed by firing squad. They want to instill fear.”...

    On Jan. 17, President Trump tweeted: “No ‘Cave’ on the issue of Border and National Security.” Eight days later, he caved, agreeing to reopen the government for three weeks without getting a penny for his border wall. His right-wing allies are spluttering in rage, but they shouldn’t be surprised. This debacle confirms that Trump is not the “ultimate negotiator” he purports to be. He is, in fact, a lousy negotiator. Now he may be on the verge of concluding the worst deals of the century by pulling U.S. troops out of South Korea and Afghanistan in return for empty promises...
  • South Korea bypassing North Korea sanctions

    Korea Herald ^ | Jan 13, 2019
    President Moon Jae-in’s government is seeking ways to circumvent international sanctions against North Korea to reopen an inter-Korean industrial park. The Kaesong industrial complex north of the Demilitarized Zone separating the two Koreas was shut down in February 2016 after Pyongyang conducted its fourth nuclear test. The ensuing moves by Seoul officials suggest the Moon administration is seeking to resume the inter-Korean projects, particularly the joint industrial park, as a catalyst for the North’s denuclearization rather than a step to be taken after a significant progress is made. But it would prove practically impossible to bypass sanctions imposed by a...

    The timing of this revelation is rather disconcerting, all things considered. NBC News is reporting that a new study from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) indicates the North Koreans have a previously undisclosed ballistic missile base hidden away in the mountains. And making matters worse, they think this might be one of as many as twenty such sites the country has never admitted to owning. With a second U.S.- North Korea nuclear summit looming in February, researchers have discovered a secret ballistic missile base in North Korea — one of as many as 20 undisclosed missile...

    Donald Trump wants North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to know that he likes him and will fulfill his wishes, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in has said, a day after meeting the US president at an economic summit in Argentina. Moon, who is hoping to host Kim soon on the first ever trip to Seoul by a North Korean leader as agreed earlier this year, said Trump had asked him to pass on a message. "The message is that President Trump has very favourable views toward Chairman Kim and he likes him," Moon told reporters aboard a flight from Argentina...

    US President Donald Trump’s statement that Seoul would not lift sanctions on Pyongyang without America’s “approval” did not go down well in South Korea, prompting criticism from activists and politicians from across the political spectrum. A group of student activists climbed up the Statue of King Sejong in central Seoul on Friday afternoon in a protest against Trump’s speech as they flew a banner that read, “South Korea is not a US colony” and chanted, “Trump needs to apologize.” The protest, which saw six people arrested, comes after Trump said Wednesday, “They won’t do it without our approval. They do...

    The North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, has invited Pope Francis to visit his country, according to South Korean officials. Kim told his South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, at a summit last month that he would “ardently welcome the pope if he visits Pyongyang”, according to a spokesman for the presidential Blue House. Moon, who is Catholic, will visit Europe for a nine-day trip beginning on 13 October. He will meet the Pope and intends to relay the invitation. The desire to welcome the leader of the Catholic church comes as Kim attempts to transform his image from paranoid head of...

Pope Francis is already set to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Oct. 18 for an audience at the Vatican Apostolic Palace, where Moon will personally deliver the invitation from Kim Jong Un. President Moon, a Catholic, will also participate in a Mass for peace on the Korean peninsula in St. Peter’s Basilica on Oct. 17 celebrated by the Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin. During the most recent summit between Korean leaders in September, Kim told Moon...

    Kim Jong-un has said he expects “great progress would surely be made” on issues between North Korea and the US after secretary of state Mike Pompeo visited Pyonyang for “productive and wonderful talks”. Kim “explained in detail the proposals for solving the denuclearization issue”, according to paraphrased remarks reported by the official Korean Central News Agency, but neither side has revealed those plans. Kim also said he was confident relations between the two countries would “continue to develop favorably in the future” and expected a second summit with Donald Trump to be held “sooner or later”. The two countries will...
