Kim Jong-un blows off Mike Pompeo to look at potato farm

"The Chinese side has been stressing that we hope that the DPRK and the U.S. can strengthen dialogue and consultation, follow through on the consensus and outcomes of the summit in Singapore and move forward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", Hua told reporters Monday.

Kim meeting Trump fulfilled an important foreign policy goal for North Korea, and China, its main trading partner, has been observed resuming trade with Pyongyang.

But given the harsh statements from Pyongyang following Pompeo's trip last week - the North Korean Foreign Ministry blasted Washington's stance on denuclearization as "gangster-like" - it's possible that it's gonna be a long, long time.

When President Donald Trump announced the United States would halt joint military drills with South Korea, he backed his controversial move by citing the "tremendous" costs of such exercises. "I have it for him", Trump said.

The yen is seemingly oblivious to this deterioration in Korean peninsula discussion.

The professor urged Trump not to offset his diplomatic efforts after the Singapore summit, saying he should next persuade his hawkish aides to come up with a feasible approach on "full denuclearization" - one that differs from the past complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement (CVID) of North Korea's nuclear programs.

During Mr Pompeo's trip relations between the United States and North Korea appeared to take a dive as Pyongyang accused the U.S. of a "gangster-like mindset" during the high-level negotiations.

However Mr Kim has not been seen in public for seven days, with every official move usually documented by news agency KCNA.


Accusations from US politicians, however, have triggered nationalistic sentiment among Chinese netizens.

America has about 28,500 troops based in South Korea and they routinely train with their local counterparts.

Pompeo did not get a promised meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which sent a message, the source said. He repeated that the United States would not push for any sanctions relief until after North Korea proved its nuclear program no longer existed and could not be rehabilitated.

President Donald Trump said he hasn't yet given Kim Jong Un a CD with the song "Rocket Man" he autographed, but still plans to.

Trump later added on Twitter that the decision would "save a fortune".

Trump told reporters Tuesday that he might have another gift for Kim as well.

This morning, Trump was asked if the "Rocket Man" report was true.
