North Korea to Become Nuclear Weapons State: Former Diplomat

North Korea to Become Nuclear Weapons State: Former Diplomat

As reported by the Yonhap news agency on Monday, Thae Yong-ho a former London-based North Korean diplomat expressed doubts over the possibility of a complete denuclearization of North Korea. The two allies stepped up diplomatic contacts ahead of a meeting between North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump. This is the first time that the USA government mentioned a specific place in its territory to store North Korea's nuclear facilities and materials to be dismantled.

"When Kim Jong Un sees President Trump in Singapore, he should give something big", the security adviser, Moon Chung-in, said at a Tokyo conference, referring to the North Korean leader.

National Security Advisor John Bolton said on May 13 that the USA government's permanent, verifiable and irreversible dismantling (PVID) means every nuclear weapon should be dismantled and transferred to Oak Ridge and uranium enrichment and plutonium reprocessing capabilities should be removed. If the idea is translated into action, North Korea could enjoy economic prosperity that will rival that of South Korea.

The broadcaster said later the group had arrived at the Diaoyutai government guest house although the identity of the visitors was not immediately known. "They are the strongest assurance that guarantees the most respected and happiest life on earth". Pompeo also promised not to seek regime change in the North.

A move like denuclearisation would conflict the integral power structure of North Korea, Thae added. As one of the highest ranking North Korean defectors, Thae frequently rails against Kim and is considered an ardent hawk on North Korea's conciliatory overtures, even going as far as saying "Kim Jong Un's days are numbered". The meeting would be the first time a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader would meet, and comes after Kim held a summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April.
