Kim Jong Un invites Pope Francis to Pyongyang

Pompeo met with the North Korean leader in Pyongyang on Sunday to rekindle stalled denuclearisation talks following a landmark summit between Kim and US President Donald Trump in Singapore.

"I hope your trip to North Korea and the upcoming second US-North Korea summit will provide a good opportunity for achieving irreversible, decisive progress in terms of denuclearisation and the peace process on the Korean peninsula". They said the North Korean leader appeared simply to be repackaging and dragging out past pledges.

'Timing won't be too far away, ' he added, while insisting that 'it is happening, and we're setting that up right now'.

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

The game was part of a high-profile sports exchange between the two countries meant to help thaw ties that had been growing chilly over the past year.

KCNA said "there was an agreement on the issue of holding the working negotiation for the second DPRK-U.S. summit talks as early as possible, and relevant procedure-related issues and ways were also discussed".

He also expressed gratitude towards Trump for making a honest effort to implement the agreements that were made in their previous summit in June.

Kim Jong Un, the once-reclusive leader of one of the world's most closed nations, appears to be continuing his recent worldwide outreach by relaying an invitation for Pope Francis to visit North Korea.

The North Korean leader told President Moon of his intention when the two men met for a summit last month.

Angry Kavanaugh Blasts Senate for Making Confirmation ‘Disgrace’
Shortly after Ford made the claims, she stated that "there is zero chance that I would confuse [Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge]". Swetnick said she was a victim of one of the gang rapes, but she did not allege that Kavanaugh or Judge attacked her.

He said that Kim invited inspectors to the Punggye-ri test facility, the site of all six of the regime's nuclear blasts.

Pompeo told a reporter travelling with him on Monday that "we made significant progress".

In Tokyo on Saturday, Mr Pompeo promised he would bring up Japan's concerns about North Korea's alleged abductions of Japanese citizens and its nuclear ambitions.

Pompeo declined to comment whether there was progress on a shutdown of the Yongbyon site.

There's no sign that North Korea is slowing down its production of nuclear fuel.

"While the United States side has constantly escalated trade frictions with China, it has also taken actions regarding Taiwan that harm China's core interests", Wang said.

Pompeo said that despite obvious differences on many issues between the two sides, the United States does not mean to oppose China's development, and there is no policy to fully contain China.

"We would fundamentally change the nature of North Korea's relationship with the rest of the world", Secretary Pompeo told press in South Korea Oct. 8 after the meeting with Kim. A second summit in the coming weeks could boost Trump ahead of USA midterm elections in November, but a failure to secure any measurable commitments would undercut what the president has seen so far as a clear foreign policy strength.

The news of Moon's interest in a visit from the pope comes as Moon is about to begin a European trip that will include a private conference with Pope Francis at the Vatican where the South Korean president is expected to pass on Kim's invitation in person.
