DOOMSDAY BACK ON? Kim SLAMS 'Ignorant and Incompetent' South Korea

US demanded N. Korea ship ‘some’ nukes & missiles abroad within 6 months – Asahi

While Kim has agreed to discuss "denuclearization", he wants a phased approach and an end to Trump's "maximum pressure" campaign of global sanctions and military threats. North Korea had criticized the way the US dealt with Libya and Iraq at the time. "We'll have to see", Trump said in the Oval Office.

USA and North Korean officials have engaged in backroom talks regarding the Trump-Kim summit.

"The situation on the peninsula has eased up, which is worth cherishing", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a regular briefing. -South Korea joint exercise, along with those between the three allies, as key pillars of deterrence in the region. You have to remember, that for a very long time, Kim has been talking about how nuclear weapons are the core of his rule and so it's very hard for him to go to the South Koreans and then the Americans and say look, I'm willing to give them up, you know, no big deal.

The North has long said it needs nuclear weapons to protect itself against a U.S. invasion. Last year's exercise included roughly 1,200 USA personnel and about 640 South Koreans and this year's drill is similar.

Washington is pressing for North Korea's complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization. -South Korea air force drills "deliberate military provocation".

Trump didn't specify what that next step would be, but in recent months he has pressured China and other countries to cut off money to North Korea unless and until it gives up nuclear weapons.

The two-week Max Thunder exercise began on Friday, with 100 military planes, including strategic bombers taking part.

"Well, the Libyan model isn't a model that we have (in mind) at all when we're thinking of North Korea".

South Korea is seeking to act as a mediator to bridge the gap between the United States and North Korea ahead of a planned summit, an official at South Korea's presidential Blue House said on Thursday.

Variety's Ramin Setoodeh posted a picture of people leaving, saying: "I've never seen anything like this at a film festival". People have also heaped praise on the film by terming it as one of Von Trier's best works to date.

The council, headed by top security advisor Chung Eui-yong, also backed the summit between Kim and the USA president Donald Trump, on 12 June in Singapore, although Pyongyang's statements on Wednesday raised doubts about its future.

In his statement on Wednesday, Kim Kye Gwan stressed that the North had "already expressed our willingness for a denuclearized Korean peninsula and repeatedly declared that the USA must end its hostile DPRK policy and nuclear threats as preconditions".

According to the New York Post, the Chairman of North Korea's Reunification Committee harshly rejected Seoul's suggestion that South Korea help "mediate" the upcoming meeting between U.S. and Korean officials. The North cites the example of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, who died at the hands of rebel forces amid a popular uprising in October 2011; he had given up his nuclear program in the 2000s.

The North has frequently used Mr Gaddafi's death to justify its own nuclear development in the face of perceived USA threats.

"The North Koreans aren't happy with what they're seeing and hearing", he said.

In an interview with Fox News Radio, Bolton said the remarks against him were "nothing new".

Asked if he will insist during the possible summit on the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, Trump replied: "Yes".

He specifically criticised US National Security Adviser John Bolton, who has called for North Korea to quickly give up its nuclear arsenal in a deal that would mirror Libya's abandonment of its program for weapons of mass destruction.

Army Col. Rob Manning says Exercise Max Thunder 2018 is created to improve the abilities of the USA and South Korea to operate together.
