Sustained and condensed denuclearization of N. Korea

SEOUL: The U.S. and North Korea are expected to seek denuclearization in a “sustained” and “condensed” manner as their officials will meet to discuss details to make the North give up its nuclear weapons program, Seoul’s unification minister said today.

Cho Moung-gyon said the two countries have demonstrated they are moving “in the same direction” in implementing the summit agreement their leaders reached in last month’s summit.”It is necessary (for the North and the U.S.) to work on ironing out their differences in initial stages of talks,” Cho said in a speech at a forum in Seoul.

“I expect that the denuclearization and peacebuilding will likely be carried out in a sustained and condensed manner going forward.”Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Pyongyang and met with North Korean officials, including Kim Yong-Chol, a close aide to leader Kim Jong-un, to work out details on how to denuclearize the North.
