  • Trump sees chance of breakthrough in meeting with Kim Bolton

He said reports that North Korea is considering a greater degree of economic openness have also fueled hopes that Dandong is well-situated to benefit from increased cross-border trade, even though North Korea has been under tough United Nations sanctions since December, following a string of nuclear weapons tests.

Trump said he will greet Pompeo and the Americans when they land at Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington at 2 a.m. EDT (0600 GMT) Thursday morning.

Last month, Pompeo became the first known US official to meet with Kim, where he helped lay the groundwork for the upcoming meeting with Trump.

Clinton, during a visit to Australia last week, said USA officials should make no concessions to the North Korean regime without seeing concrete action from Pyongyang.

Boston Dynamics' SpotMini was introduced late previous year and took the design of the company's "bigger brother" quadruped Spot. In any case, we're looking forward to seeing the SpotMini in the flesh (or its robotic equivalent).

North Korean state media reported over the weekend that the country had scheduled the dismantlement of its nuclear bomb site for later in May.

"We will have to provide security assurances to be sure", Pompeo said.

"We can create conditions for real economic prosperity for the North Korean people that will rival that of the South", he said. He claims to have shut down a nuclear research facility that already was on its last legs.

"The implementation of the decision means getting rid of all the nuclear weapons, dismantling them, taking them to Oak Ridge, Tennessee", Bolton said Sunday in an interview with ABC's "This Week". The JCPOA provided Iran relief from UN-imposed sanctions in return for curbing its uranium enrichment program and granting access to inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). "But we are also very much interested in operationalizing the commitment as quickly as possible", Bolton said.

Russel also said that Kim Jong-Un is unlikely to put any trust in US promises in a negotiation in the first place, even before Trump's withdrawal from the Iran deal.

And Wang said the ruling Chinese Communist Party is likely to continue imposing United Nations sanctions imposed last December, despite a recent rapprochement between President Xi Jinping and Kim Jong Un.
