Trump Announces Trade Deal Wednesday, Threatens to Change His Mind on Thursday

S. Korea Informs N. Korea of Officials Attending High-level Talks

During a summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and President Xi Jinping of China earlier this week, Kim said that the issue of denuclearization could be achieved if Seoul and Washington "respond to our efforts with goodwill, create an atmosphere of peace and stability while taking progressive and synchronous measures".

"We still have a fair number of issues to resolve on a working-level for preparations over the next month", said Ri Son Gwon, the chairman of North Korea's committee for the peaceful reunification of the country in closing remarks to the South Korean delegation.

The question now is whether the summit can lay the groundwork for a successful Trump-Kim meeting and a return to multi-nation talks on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. -North Korea summit, Koh said.

The agreement will also cap South Korean steel exports at 70 percent of what the country now exports to the United States in an average year and will impose a 10 percent tariff on aluminum exports from South Korea to the US. Trump has accepted an invitation from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for a meeting in May. A third of its kind, the summit follows the first summit between the two Koreas which took place in June 2000 between Kim Dae-jung and Kim Jong-il, and the second in October 2007 between Roh Moo-hyun and Kim Jong-il.

South Korean experts are also concerned that Pyongyang might request a ban on the deployment to the Korean Peninsula of US bombers with nuclear weapons as a condition for denuclearization.

In Sejong City, South Korean officials were scrambling to figure out what Trump means by tying trade to North Korea politics, South Korean news service Newsis reported Friday.

The TMC had said earlier this month it would observe Ram Navami in several districts with huge rallies. Considering the present security scenario, Centre had also offered assistance to paramilitary forces.

In fact, Kim reportedly told the special envoy on March 5 that "there is no need for nuclear weapons as long as the safety of our regime is guaranteed", a daring statement that went beyond South Korea's expectations.

In Ohio, Trump also discussed findings in a new report from the White House Council of Economic Advisers saying the infrastructure proposal would contribute modestly to economic growth over the 10-year period and help put hundreds of thousands of unemployed laborers back to work.

The North's diplomatic outreach comes after an unusually provocative year in which it conducted its most powerful nuclear test to date and test-launched three intercontinental ballistic missiles created to target the US mainland.

The two sides did not settle on the summit agenda at Thursday's meeting in the Unification Pavilion on Panmunjom's northern side, but the South's delegation leader Cho Myoung-gyon told reporters they agreed Kim and Moon should be able to hold "frank discussions on all matters".

A summit between Kim and President Donald Trump is also anticipated by the end of May.

The discussions, focusing on logistical details for the upcoming summit between the two presidents - Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in - will take place inside the Demilitarized Zone on Thursday.

Experts interpret USA reactions as a demonstration of will not to repeat the failures that it has experienced in past negotiations with North Korea.
