Moon's special envoys to visit United States on outcome of N. Korea trip

US demands North Korea take action on nuclear issue before talks As talks with North near, S Korea sees familiar hurdles

The deal fell apart in 2002 when a senior US official said North Korean officials admitted to having a secret nuclear program during his visit to Pyongyang.

Syrian government forces are making gains in the battle against jihadist insurgents in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta.

"In addition, the North promised not to use not only nuclear weapons but also conventional weapons against the South", he added.

Tensions rose to the highest level in years over North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes, which it pursues in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions, with shrill, bellicose rhetoric coming from both Kim Jong Un and Mr Trump. For more on this, RT America's Ed Schultz speaks with geopolitical strategist at Trilogy Advisors John Sitilides.

Kimura said North Korea showed a willingness for denuclearization in an attempt to seize on an opportunity to negotiate with the U.S. It may be possible that the U.S. will lift sanctions on North Korea if Pyongyang agreed to suspend, instead of completely scrap, its nuclear and missile development, Kimura said.

The North also said it was willing to send a delegation for dialogue with the South next month at the border village of Panmunjom.

To create a credible deterrent to the United States, North Korea would have to show it has the ability to launch multiple missiles at once to circumvent US anti-missile defenses in the event of war.

Taken at face value, the sudden shift would mark a major diplomatic breakthrough following last year's heated rhetoric, with Pyongyang threatening the US with ballistic missiles and President Trump promising to rain "fire and fury" on the North. That conflict ended with a truce, but no peace treaty - something that has kept the two Koreas on a war footing ever since.

The first inter-Korean summit took place in the year 2000. "May be false hope, but the U.S.is ready to go hard in either direction!" "All options are on the table and our posture toward the regime will not change until we see credible, verifiable, and concrete steps toward denuclearization".

The complaint by many observers is that North Korea has repeatedly used disarmament talks as a way to ease outside pressure and win badly needed aid, while all the while secretly pressing its weapons development.

And in the afternoon, Trump, speaking in the Oval Office, said he was encouraged by the apparent diplomatic progress.

Another important note: Everything we're hearing about the North's offer has come from the South.

"Hopefully we'll go in the very very peaceful, lovely path", the president said.

One administration official said that while it was unclear how long Trump might keep the negotiating window open, it would likely be evident in months "if North Korea is just playing us".
