India Imposes New Trade Restrictions on North Korea

Perched in the Oval Office, the 71-year-old president was uncharacteristically cautious.

Moon has repeatedly underscored the importance of the latest improvement in inter-Korean relations, calling it a hard-earned and possibly the last chance to restart multilateral negotiations on ending the North's nuclear ambition. These developments will severely impair the chance of success in any possible US-North Korea diplomacy.

It said that Kim's negotiators "made it clear that it would have no reason to keep nuclear weapons if the military threat to the North was eliminated and its security guaranteed".

The two leaders will meet on the southern side of the fortified border village of Panmunjom for what would be only the third inter-Korean summit since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

"By referring to the wishes of the forefathers, all internal conflict has been eliminated", Koo said, adding: "That's the best card Kim Jong Un can use".

This is important as North Korean embassies abroad operate as revenue-generating hubs for myriad illicit activities.

"We have a long history, 27 years, of talking to North Korea". Talks should continue, but we need to wait while keeping up the sanctions. "I seriously doubt it", Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, told a Senate hearing Tuesday. John McCain, R-Ariz., counted himself "a little more optimistic" than Coats.

"The North Koreans have said many times that they don't oppose nuclear disarmament, but they've also changed their positions so easily".

"We hope that the agreements reached by North and South (Korea) will begin to be implemented in practical steps aimed at further reducing tensions around the Korean Peninsula and, specifically, will contribute to the beginning of the direct US-Korean dialogue".

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, several reports said that the rogue nation has offered to discuss denuclearisation with the United States and considered abandoning its weapons programs in exchange for security guarantees, according to Seoul. And now the "good cop, bad cop" routine has begun to pry open the inscrutable Hermit Kingdom. Rather than giving up completion of its nuclear and missiles programs, it wants to shake up the sanctions and military pressure.

The most recent delegation from Seoul to Pyongyang was led by Chung. "As The Wall Street Journal notes, "[North Korea's former leaders] also extracted concessions in return for talking and broke every promise they made". Smiling for cameras, he posed during the meeting with the South Koreans and presided over what was described by the North's official Korean Central News Agency as a "co-patriotic and sincere atmosphere". But playing the peacemaker has the potential for a huge payoff, both for the future of his country and for his own political legacy. But a planned encounter with Kim's sister was scrapped by North Korea. "Pyongyang will use talks to play for time and advantage". To achieve this, the two parties agreed to hold working-level consultations.

The surprising announcement in Seoul followed a failed diplomatic outreach effort between Washington and Pyongyang a month ago.

"Kim Jong-un has a certain message, which is not publicised to be delivered directly to the Trump administration". They will test the line with a phone call before the summit.

He, however, declined to comment on whether he had any preconditions for dialogue.

Moon's special advisor Moon Chung-in has raised the possibility for a possible pullout of U.S. forces, saying the president has the right to "let them out".

In the bigger picture, Kim wants to chip away at Washington's sanctions-oriented, "maximum pressure" policy.
