Trump says NK will honour denuclearisation 'contract'

By analyzing the results of Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang, Japanese officials are trying to gauge how seriously North Korea is committing itself to the "denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" that was agreed in the Trump-Kim meeting in Singapore.
The White House had earlier said Mr Pompeo would meet with Mr Kim, but he did not turn up and he only met with Kim Yong Chol, the North Korean leader's powerful right-hand man.

Kim Jong Un's private plane, designated Chammae-1, was spotted in the Russian port city of Vladivostok on Monday before flying back to North Korea three hours later, and the question remains why?
When President Donald Trump announced the USA would halt joint military drills with South Korea, he backed his controversial move by citing the "tremendous" costs of such exercises. North Korea called the talks "regrettable".
In Washington, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY said the negotiations with North Korea have been a "flop" so far.
"We had expected that the U.S. side would offer constructive measures that would help build trust based on the spirit of the leaders' summit".
According to the Pentagon, North Korean officials have indicated in the past that they have the remains of as many as 200 United States troops.
Trump's suggestion that China was behind North Korea's tougher stance on denuclearisation talks echoes a comment by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham on Sunday.
"If those requests were gangster-like, the world is a gangster", Pompeo said, noting that numerous UN Security Council resolutions have demanded that the North rid itself of nuclear weapons and end its ballistic missile program.
If it is determined that North Korea is cheating and remains a threat, says Gaffney, then a decision will have to be made to deal with that problem, and it is that decision that could finally force Kim's hand, he predicts.
"I have confidence that Kim Jong Un will honor the contract we signed &, even more importantly, our handshake".
"If those requests were "gangster-like" then the world is a gangster, because there was a unanimous decision at the U.N. Security Council about what needs to be achieved", the secretary said in the first USA response to the North's assertion that added to skepticism over future negotiations. "We had detailed and substantive discussions about the next steps towards a fully verified and complete denuclearization".
The statement included a personal appeal to the U.S. president: "We still cherish our good faith in President Trump", it said.
