Pompeo: US to lift sanctions if North Korea dismantles nuclear weapons program

15 May 2018

President Donald Trump's national security adviser wants North Korea to ship all of its nuclear weapons to a USA lab in Tennessee, to make sure Kim Jong-un follows through on his promise to dismantle the program.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the United States can prepare conditions for North Korean people's economic prosperity comparable to South Korea although American taxpayers' money cannot be spent on the North.

U.S. Secretary of state added that new opportunities will help CNLR to compete with South Korea. Pompeo said: "We will have to provide security assurances, to be sure". "Very exciting!" he wrote on Twitter.

"And, we are waiting for a historical meeting, which is going to happen between the US President and leader of North Korea".

Trump sent Pompeo to Pyongyang to accompany the men home following US calls for Kim to free them as a gesture of goodwill and sincerity before the U.S. With the end of that deal comes the reintroduction of crippling economic sanctions which will serve to isolate, deplete and place strain on the crumbling Iran economy - the same type of sanctions which have finally brought North Korea to the negotiating table. That doesn't mean we shouldn't try or that we should open up the national checkbook as President Trump appears ready to do.

South and North Korea reportedly plan to conduct high-level talks this week as the estranged nations work towards a peace deal, the South Korean Unification Ministry said. "They are in great need of agricultural equipment and technology", he said on CBS' "Face the Nation". Pompeo praised this as "one step along the way". Believing we can "denuclearize" North Korea is probably not realistic in any case.

We have already provided enough evidence of the same to them but they have always denied those facts and all the related reports . On the 26/11trial in Pakistan, Sibal said, "India no longer needs validation of its position on Pakistan's involvement".

According to him, the U.S. is ready to lift the sanctions in order to open the way for private American investment in energy, infrastructure and agricultural sector of North Korea.

Pompeo said Trump is in a unique position. "It means getting rid of the uranium enrichment and plutonium processing capabilities".

Just two weeks ago, apartments in Dandong New District were selling for as little as 3,000 yuan per square meter, he said.

But he also struck a contradictory note with Pompeo on Sunday, saying in an interview with CNN's "State of the Union" that the North should not "look for economic aid from us".

"The prospect for North Korea is for it to become a normal nation, to behave and interact with the rest of the world the way South Korea does", he said.

The comments from Bolton and Pompeo come as Trump prepares to meet with Kim in June.
