"So we think North Korea is having a cautious approach on the issue as it needs time to organize its stance", Unification Ministry spokesperson Baik Tae-hyun said Monday. Trump dispensed with decades of USA foreign policy orthodoxy with his decision, particularly given that the North Korean leader made only a vague offer - conveyed via a South Korean delegation that visited him - to discuss giving up his nuclear weapons program.

A council diplomat said the USA appeal to keep up sanctions pressure showed that Washington remained skeptical about prospects for a deal with Pyongyang on scrapping its nuclear program.

Kono declined to say what that action should be, but South Korea's presidential Blue House quoted him as saying that the breakthrough on talks with North Korea was a near "miracle".

"If military threats to the North Korea decrease and regime safety is guaranteed, the North showed that it has no reason to retain nukes."The import of this statement should not be overblown".

Those concerns came sharply into focus when North Korea literally shook China with an underground nuclear test that produced an quake felt over the border.

It is the first title from CJ HK Entertainment, a joint venture between South Korea's media and entertainment company CJ E&M and the Vietnamese studio HK Film.

Trump said China played a big role in getting North Korea to sit down for talks, and he was not just being polite. "The South Koreans are clearly heavily involved". The factory complex provided jobs to thousands of North Koreans.

Cheong Soeng Chang spoke about the possibility of North Korea giving up its nuclear and missile programs.

Tensions eased as the Koreas held talks against the backdrop of the Winter Olympics in South Korea last month, but Japan has expressed skepticism and warned that "talks for the sake of talks" would be unacceptable. His story includes material from VOA's Ken Bredemeier and Chris Hannas.

His "intentions are to use that weapon for nuclear blackmail, and then, to, quote, you know, "reunify" the peninsula under the red banner", McMaster said in a representative expression of this view in December. Write to us in the Comments section, and visit our Facebook page.
