CIA Korea head paved way for Kim Jong Un, Mike Pompeo meeting

While Singapore's tight control over political activities and media has drawn criticism, it's also what makes the country an ideal location for a high-security event like the Trump-Kim summit.

Andrew Kim, the silver-haired aide seen sitting next to Pompeo during his meetings with the North Korean leader, played a key role in improving relations, a senior South Korean official told News 1 on Tuesday.

National Security Advisor John Bolton said at an interview on May 13 (local time) 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.

An association of South Korean residents and students in Singapore on Monday expressed hope that the June 12 summit between leaders of North Korea and the United States in the city-state will lead to permanent peace and a trade boom on the Korean Peninsula.

"We can create conditions for real economic prosperity for the North Korean people that will rival that of the South", he added. Some analysts question whether the dismantling of the site is aimed at destroying evidence. They also agreed to stop all hostile acts over "land, sea and air" that can cause military tensions and clashes, establish a liaison office in the North Korean border town of Kaesong, and to resume temporary reunions between war-separated families.

Pyongyang for decades has been pushing a concept of "denuclearization" that bears no resemblance to the American definition, vowing to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes its troops and the nuclear umbrella defending South Korea and Japan.
