The US emphasises North Korea to keep the promise on nuclear and missile tests.The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that he expects North Korea’s Kim Jong Un to keep his commitment on not resuming nuclear tests.
Pompeo said Kim Jong-un had promised US President Donald Trump in Vietnam that testing would not resume.The new comment was followed by a suggestion by North Korean-Vice Foreign Minister Choe Sun-hui that denuclearisation talks might end and testing could resume.
Mr Pompeo told reporters on Friday that “on multiple occasions [Mr Kim] spoke directly to the president and made a commitment that he would not resume nuclear testing, nor would he resume missile testing” during their February summit.”That’s Chairman Kim’s word,” Mr Pompeo said. “We have every expectation that he will live up to that commitment.”
“I saw the remarks [Ms Choe] made – she left open the possibility negotiations would continue. It’s the administration’s desire that we continue to have conversations around this,”he added.
At a news conference after the second summit, Mr Trump said no plans had been made for a third summit, but he expressed optimism about a “good outcome” in the future.
