North Korea on Friday to prepare for next week's inter-Korean summit in Pyongyang.

Ri said the liaison office would "greatly contribute to improving inter-Korean relations and opening up a new era of peace and prosperity", while also urging the South to "accelerate the implementation of the Panmunjom Declaration".


After Trump-Jong Un Summit in June, Russia and China pushed for the Security Council to lighten sanctions on Pyongyang.

He is to stay in North Korea for three days during the summit with Kim and will travel along Korea's western coast, the Blue House said Friday. These projects are held back by the sanctions against North Korea. He said he will focus on facilitating talks between the United States and North Korea and finding ways to ease the military standoff along the Koreas' heavily fortified border. The fighting stopped with an armistice that has left the peninsula technically at war.

The North was "willing to denuclearise", Moon said on Thursday, while the United States was willing to "end hostile relations" and provide security guarantees, "but there is a blockage as both sides are demanding each other to act first". "The process can't have anything to do with a plan to denuclearize unilaterally".

For Friday's meeting, Kim Sang-gyun, a National Intelligence Service senior official who visited Pyongyang on September 5, led the South Korean delegation to the working-level talks. -South Korea alliance or lead to a withdrawal of US troops.


South Korea is pinning high hopes on Kim's remarks to Moon's special envoys last week that he wants to realise denuclearisation within Trump's first term in office ending in early 2021, the first time line he has ever given.

The opening comes ahead of a meeting between North and South leaders. The comments were seen as an important departure from North Korea's previous stance.

In a move that appeared to signal the South Korean leader has not lost sight of the importance of national defense amid an unprecedented level of inter-Korea engagement, Moon stressed the importance of national security but also "defense reform", Yonhap reported Friday.

That would provide a starting point for establishing a timeline for denuclearization, reduce concerns over North Korea's intent and make it clearer that the North bears the greater responsibility in the efforts to resolve the nuclear crisis, Cha said.


"Russia has actively attempted to undermine the U.N. Security Council resolutions, the work of the. committee at the U.N. that evaluates compliance with sanctions", Pompeo told a news briefing at the State Department.
