Kim Declares His ‘Faith’ in Trump, Who Offers an Enthusiastic Thanks

Two Koreas agree to hold September summit in Pyongyang: Seoul

"(Chairman Kim) said his faith in President Trump remains unchanged.

Trump late last month called off Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's planned visit to North Korea, and accused Pyongyang of slow-walking efforts to dismantle its nuclear program.

Saying that Kim had expressed his willingness to "take more proactive steps" if the USA takes measures corresponding to those Pyongyang has taken so far this year, Chung went on to say that the North appeared to be hoping for Seoul to play a bigger role in related matters.

The President hailed Kim's comments on social media within minutes of the announcement, saying "Kim Jong Un of North Korea proclaims 'unwavering faith in President Trump.' Thank you to Chairman Kim". A South Korean delegation met Kim Jong-un to set up an inter-Korean summit later this month.

However, US officials may put spanner in the works as they insisted that the peace accord can not be reached before North Korea provides all information on its nuclear program, allows worldwide inspections and gives up a certain number of its projectiles during the early stages of the talks.

Moon's national security adviser Chung said Kim had stressed the need for the United States to reciprocate North Korea's initial moves, which have included dismantling a nuclear test site and a missile engine facility. Moon is seen as eager to keep the diplomacy alive in part so that he can advance his ambitious engagement plans with the North, which would need US backing to succeed.

"He said he's pre-emptively taken steps necessary for denuclearization and wants to see these goodwill measures being met with goodwill measures", added Chung, who met with Kim in Pyongyang on Wednesday.

The summit, which will last until September 20, had been planned since last month, but the exact date was set after a team of South Korean envoys traveled to Pyongyang to meet Kim and deliver a letter from Moon on Wednesday. But negotiations have made little headway.

"Chairman Kim. expressed frustration over the doubt shown by some parts of the global society about his will", he said, according to Reuters.

He even expressed regret that the worldwide community does not appreciate such meaningful steps taken by his country, the South Korean envoy said. "He expressed his strong will to carry out more proactive measures toward denuclearization if action is taken in response to the North's preemptive steps".

Chung said the upcoming summit will review the implementation of the inter-Korean summit agreement reached at the leaders' first meeting in Panmunjom.

Moon, who brokered the historic summit between Kim and Trump in Singapore, said he had "high hopes" for his next meeting with the North's leader to achieve a similar feat.

Asked about USA intelligence that North Korea was still advancing its weapons programmes, Pompeo noted that Pyongyang had ceased its nuclear tests and test-firing missiles, "which we consider a good thing".

A separate account by North Korean state media said Kim told the delegation that he wanted progress on denuclearization, without mentioning the US or Trump.

Mr. Kim also said an end-of-war declaration that Seoul and Pyongyang have been pushing Washington to sign off on wouldn't weaken the U.S.

The North's Rodong Sinmun newspaper on Thursday said Washington must discard its "stubborn" stance that the North must denuclearise first before the United States agrees to a peace treaty. Signing a peace treaty without a disarmament deal also carries risks for the US, because it could legitimize Kim's control over half of the peninsula and undermine the rationale for stationing 28,000 or so American troops on the peninsula. Chung said there was no discussion with Kim about rescheduling that trip.
