‘Talks on­go­ing’:

Asia

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

Talks with North Korea are on­go­ing over the coun­try’s po­ten­tial denu­cle­ariza­tion, US Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo said Fri­day, de­spite the ap­pear­ance that dis­cus­sions had stalled.

“We are still con­tin­u­ing to have many con­ver­sa­tions with the DPRK about how to ef­fec­tu­ate achiev­ing all the com­mit­ments that were made dur­ing the Sin­ga­pore sum­mit,” Pom­peo told jour­nal­ists.

At a land­mark meet­ing June 12 with US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un pledged to de­nu­cle­arize the Korean penin­sula.

How­ever, no de­tails were agreed, and Wash­ing­ton and Py­ongyang have sparred since over what that means and how it will be achieved.

Last month, Trump abruptly canceled a planned visit by Pom­peo to Py­ongyang.

But new ground ap­pears to have been bro­ken, as the White House talks of a pos­si­ble sec­ond sum­mit with the US pres­i­dent. (AFP)
