South Korea considers lifting some sanctions on North Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Pope Francis would be given an

On Tuesday, Trump said that he was planning a second summit with Kim for the near future.

After interviewing dozens of defectors, the 2014 United Nations Commission of Inquiry concluded there was "an nearly complete denial of the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion" in North Korea, while the US State Department's 2017 paper on religious freedoms in the North said the government exacts harsh punishments on those who insist on following their religion, including executions, torture, beatings and arrest.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has invited the Pope to North Korea.

Shin Se-min reports. President Moon Jae-in, set to depart on a 5-nation trip to Europe this weekend, . will also make a stop at the Vatican for a meeting with Pope Francis.

He initiated offers for summits with Seoul and Washington, which led to three meetings with Moon and a highly choreographed June summit with U.S. President Donald Trump at which they issued an aspirational goal of a nuclear-free peninsula, without describing how or when it would occur.

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday ruled out the possibility of South Korea lifting sanctions on North Korea without approval from the United States.

Still, Trump was upbeat on progress so far. You have no missiles flying.

"As soon as we get it logistically worked out, Chairman Kim said he's ready" to "allow them to come in", and once the arrangements are made "we'll put them on the ground", Pompeo said. "I like him, he likes me, the relationship is good".

Kim has presented himself as an worldwide statesman, sharing food, wine and laughs with South Korean officials and appearing thoroughly at ease during his meeting with Trump in Singapore.

Limiting warming to 1.5°C possible, will save 420m people
At the current rate of global warming , the world's temperatures are set to increase by another 1.5C between 2030 and 2052. It's up to them to use this manual, considering the constraints or opportunities existing in different countries.

Kim suggested that he will invite a USA inspection team to verify the explosion that the North said disabled its Punggye-ri nuclear test site in May.

But experts questioned what Pompeo achieved on Sunday on his fourth visit to Pyongyang this year.

"North Korea can be seen in the framework of great attention that the pope and Holy See are paying to East Asia" with a clear awareness of the "political and diplomatic dividends that peace would bring on a global level", he said.

Pompeo has since made another trip to Pyongyang, this past Sunday, for a summit that was called to restart negotiations between the USA and the North.

"Noting the important steps taken by the DPRK in the direction of denuclearization, the parties considered it necessary to start a timely review by the UN Security Council of the sanctions measures against the DPRK", the Joint Information Communiqué on Tripartite Consultations said.

"I'd love to remove them, but we have to get something for doing it", Trump said.

The U.N. World Food Program said on Tuesday that the supply of food remained precarious in North Korea, where one in five children is stunted by malnutrition. "I wouldn't say he made strong impressions". More than 10 million North Koreans, almost 40 percent of the population, are undernourished and need humanitarian aid, it said.
