Will Overcome Effect Of Sanctions, Says North Korea's Kim Jong Un

Share

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has doubled down on his regime persevering through tough sanctions that have choked his country's economy, urging his country to deal a "telling blow" to those imposing the sanctions and pitching self-reliance as an "eternal lifeline", state-run media reported Thursday.

US President Donald Trump said Thursday he is considering a potential third nuclear summit with North Korea's leader.

He is a second-generation revolutionary and personally knew the late Kim Jong Il, Mr Kim Jong Un's father, for over 50 years, North Korea Leadership Watch said. The two sides gave different reasons for the abrupt end in talks.

Dismissing Trump's claim, DPRK Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho has said that the DPRK only proposed partial removal of the sanctions, wanting those impeding the livelihood of their people to be removed first.

'The important task that we face right now is to maintain the momentum of dialogue and also express the positive outlook regarding the third U.S.

Since early 2018 Kim has embarked on a push for economic development and global engagement, including historic summits with the leaders of the United States, China and South Korea.

A third summit would follow on Trump's historic breakthrough past year, when he met Kim in Singapore, and a follow-up this February in Hanoi that ended without progress in getting North Korea to give up nuclear weapons.

Shortly after the Hanoi summit, a series of satellite images emerged suggesting increased activity at the North's Sohae rocket site, triggering global alarm that the nuclear-armed state might be preparing a long-range or space launch. "I've never said it would be", Trump said. But several North Korea watchers, including Sue Mi Terry, a North Korean expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and a former Asia analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency, said Moon was expected to try to persuade Trump - perhaps only privately - to agree to ease some sanctions to keep the talks alive. There is ongoing debate over whether harsh sanctions can pressure Kim to denuclearize or will keep him away from the negotiating table.

Last week, US Acting Secretary of Defence Patrick Shanahan said that Washington is not reducing the extent of its military exercises with South Korea, but is building up its military capability.

Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., assessed the denuclearization talks as "stuck on first base". He cited a United Nations panel of experts that warned on March 5 that there has been a "massive increase in illegal ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products and coal" rendering the latest United Nations sanctions "ineffective".

He has staked his presidency on engagement with isolated North Korea, pushing for a resumption of South Korean tourism to the North's Mount Kumgang and operations at the Kaesong Industrial Complex, where companies from the South used to be staffed by workers from the North.
