KYIV (FNI) - US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated that North Korea is far from fulfilling its promises to neutralize the nuclear potential of the DPRK and continues not to comply with numerous resolutions of the UN Security Council.
Pompeo said this on Friday, August 3, before the Asian Security Forum in Singapore.
According to the Associated Press, the US Secretary of State took the initiative in negotiations with the DPRK, since April, three times traveled to Pyongyang and accompanied Trump at the summit.
"Leader Kim took upon himself the obligations of denuclearization. The world demanded that he would do it within the framework of the resolutions of the UN Security Council. Insofar as they behave inconsistently with the promised, they violate one or both resolutions," Pompeo said.
As the publication notes, Pompeo's remarks appeared after the White House announced on Thursday that President Donald Trump received a new letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and quickly responded with his own letter with gratitude for the letter and hope for a new meeting.
Thank you to Chairman Kim Jong Un for keeping your word & starting the process of sending home the remains of our great and beloved missing fallen! I am not at all surprised that you took this kind action. Also, thank you for your nice letter - l look forward to seeing you soon!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 2, 2018
Recall, in Singapore, June 12, held the first ever meeting between the US president and the leader of North Korea. Kim Jong-un called the meeting with Donald Trump "a great prelude to peace."
After the meeting, Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump signed the Singapore Declaration, which should be the start of a new relationship between the two countries.
