Kim complains of USA 'hegemonism' to Russian Federation

Kim Yong Chol touched down in New York City on Wednesday afternoon

In a move that is sure to worry U.S. allies in Japan and South Korea, Trump also said that he and his guest had discussed United States troop numbers on the Korean peninsula.

"We have seen history repeat, where North Korea would declare to denuclearise, thereby portraying itself as conciliatory and forthcoming, only to turn around to void all global efforts towards peace".

"The delivery of a letter from Chairman Kim Jong Un to President Trump has apparently broadened and consolidated the road to the North Korea-US summit", said Kim Eui-gyeom, spokesman for South Korea's presidential Blue House. Trump canceled the highly anticipated event after a diplomatic spat between USA and North Korean officials, but hopes were again raised that it would take place after one of Kim Jong Un's top aides, Kim Yong Chol, visited Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in NY on Wednesday. Trump read the letter he delivered from his leader after talking to reporters on the South Lawn, but the White House did not disclose what Kim Jong Un wrote.

When it comes to paying for lodging at North Korea's preferred 5-star luxury hotel, the United States is open to covering the costs, the two people said, but it's mindful that Pyongyang may view a US payment as insulting.

Pence echoed national security adviser John Bolton, who compared Washington's approach to North Korea to the USA strategy toward Libya, which forfeited its weapons of mass destruction program in 2003, only to be rocked by a 2011 rebellion backed by the US -led NATO Western military alliance.

"We talked about a lot, and we talked about sanctions", Trump said after the meeting. He is the highest-ranking North Korean official to visit the U.S.in 18 years, and his trip to the White House will be a highly symbolic sign of easing tensions after fears of war escalated amid North Korean nuclear and missile tests last year. "I think it's going to be a process, but the relationships are building and that's very positive", he said, after waving farewell to the North Korean envoy, Kim's right-hand man. Who's going to pay for Kim Jong Un's hotel stay? But there are lingering doubts on whether he will ever fully relinquish his nuclear arsenal, which he may see as his only guarantee of survival in a region surrounded by enemies.

On Thursday, Kim Jong Un told Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that his commitment to denuclearization remains "unchanged and consistent and fixed", but experts warn he will seek concessions from Washington.

USA defense and intelligence officials have repeatedly assessed the North to be on the threshold the capability to strike anywhere in the continental US with a nuclear-tipped missile - a capacity that Trump and other USA officials have said they would not tolerate.

"As we move to adjust to the political situation in the face of USA hegemonism, I am willing to exchange detailed and in-depth opinions with your leadership and hope to do so moving forward", Kim told Lavrov. He cited "tremendous anger and open hostility" by Pyongyang but also urged Kim Jong Un to call him.

North Korea's flurry of diplomatic activity following an increase in nuclear weapons and missile tests in 2017 suggests that Kim is eager for sanctions relief to build his economy and for the worldwide legitimacy a summit with Mr. Trump would provide. That was the last time the two sides, which are technically at war, attempted to arrange a leadership summit.

Some analysts suggest the video is part of an effort by North Korea to show its willingness to negotiate its nuclear weapons policy.

Kim Yong Chul, who till now was under United States sanctions, is likely to stay in the country till tomorrow.
