Kim has declared the development of the North's nuclear force complete and that it had no further need for the site. "Is he rational"? Yes, we had good conversations, substantive conversations, conversations that involve deep, complex problems, challenges the strategic decision that Chairman Kim has before him about how it is he wishes to proceed and if he is prepared in exchange for the assurances that we're ready to provide to him if he is prepared to fully denuclearise.

"There is anticipation and some guarded optimism about possible changes in relations between the US and North Korea", Faso reported on his return from South Korea last Friday. With U.S. help, those countries recovered from the devastation of conflict.

A day earlier, Trump announced that his meeting with Kim will be held on June 12 in Singapore.

But Libya's program was not almost as advanced as North Korea and the country had not already stockpiled weapons.

However, while release of the hostages is one step in the right direction, there is still a long road ahead to a fully denuclearized Korean Peninsula.

In North Korea's bombastic rhetoric, "denuclearization" has, for years, been a byword for USA troop withdrawals from South Korea. Estimates suggest the value of North Korea's basic minerals - coal, copper, etc. - ranges from $6 to $10 trillion total, not counting the rare earth metals.
