North Korea May Seek Peace Treaty to Formally End Korean War

North Korea May Seek Peace Treaty to Formally End Korean War

"Organizing its stance" seems to mean North Korea is checking with its few allies and patrons before finalizing the offer of a summit with Trump, which originated in remarks Kim Jong-un made to visiting South Korean envoys.

U.S. President Donald Trump has agreed to meet North Korea's Kim by the end of May. He says it's "very important that those conservations are held quietly" between North Korea and the U.S.

President Donald Trump agreed last week to meet with Kim by May, in what would be the first talks between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader.

Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will meet at the truce village of Panmunjom straddling the Korean border, but a venue for the North Korea-U.S. summit has yet to be decided. "I think it's time", Mr Trump told a crowd of supporters at a rally in Pennsylvania, adding that he believed Pyongyang when they said "they are not sending missiles up" as the two sides work out the arrangements for a historic meeting. "I would say remain patient, and we'll see what happens", he said.

"There are lots of choices that are going to have to be made, and if the President feels that they all have to go the way that the United States wants them to go, we probably won't get to an agreement - and we probably will find ourselves at war", Sherman said.

"There were agreements between the USA and North Korea to open up discussion on a peace treaty, but they never materialized", Koh Yu-hwan, a professor of North Korean studies at Dongguk University in Seoul told Bloomberg, noting that conditions were critical.

North Korea, however, hasn't said much of anything publicly since the talks were announced Thursday night.

Two Congress members expelled, 11 suspended from TS Assembly
Earlier, the address was marred by slogan-shouting Congress members who accused the TRS government of being "anti-farmer". Following the ruckus, the TRS alleged that several Congress legislators were drunk, adding that they could prove it.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley said that sanctions "have helped bring North Korea" to the negotiating table.

USA national security adviser H.R. McMaster briefed U.N. Security Council envoys in NY on Monday.

The head of that South Korean delegation, National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong, met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing on Monday and will head to Moscow on Tuesday.

Baik said the two Koreas have yet to start working-level consultations on the April summit. It has continued to warn the United States and Japan against war-mongering, but its rhetoric has been tame compared with threats exchanged at the height of tensions previous year.

Tensions eased as the Koreas held talks against the backdrop of the Winter Olympics in South Korea last month, but Japan has expressed scepticism and warned that "talks for the sake of talks" would be unacceptable.

Mattis wouldn't talk at all about the diplomatic push over North Korea's nuclear programme.
