North Korea 'sincere' in talks offer — Donald Trump

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un greets Chung Eui-yong head of the presidential National Security Office in Pyongyang North Korea

During the news conference, Trump again blamed his predecessors for allowing the North Korea nuclear program to grow and credited his own policies for the prospect of talks: Sanctions, he said, "have been very, very strong and biting".

"The capacity of inter-Korean summit can broaden only if there are developments in regards to U.S. -North Korea talks", he said.

"The United States strongly condemns the use of chemical weapons to conduct an assassination", the State Department said.

He said Guterres was particularly encouraged by "the agreement to hold a summit meeting soon, to further reduce military tensions, and to discuss denuclearization in future talks with all relevant parties".

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in December sent his political chief, Jeffrey Feltman, to Pyongyang to urge North Korea to open a dialogue on ending the crisis.

The Trump administration has repeatedly said it will only engage in direct talks with North Korea if it commits to full denuclearization. The three day visit happened during the Winter Olympics.

The comments were made after South Korean officials returned from a visit to the North, where they met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The new restrictions were mainly on "new or used vessels", food and farm products, electrical equipment and wood, the government said in the statement. North Korean media has yet to confirm the statements. He added dismantling the program is the end goal.

The North's declaration not to use its nuclear arsenal and conventional weapons against the South also should not be seen merely as a goodwill gesture. "All options are on the table and our posture toward the regime will not change until we see credible, verifiable, and concrete steps toward denuclearization".

In previous programmes to halt its nuclear ambitions, the North has failed to keep its promises.

A combination photo shows a Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) handout of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un released on May 10, 2016, and Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump posing for a photo after an interview with Reuters in his office in Trump Tower, in the Manhattan borough of New York City, May 17, 2016.

But opposition leaders expressed skepticism over Moon's claim that North Korea made clear its willingness to denuclearize.

On March 5-6, a South Korean delegation led by National Security Director Chung Eui-yong visited Pyongyang to ensure rapprochement between the two countries and promote dialogue between North Korea and the United States.

The two leaders will hold talks at Panmunjom on the highly militarised border.

"North Korea showed its resolve for denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

The two defendants, Doan Thi Huong, a 29-year-old Vietnamese citizen, and Siti Aisyah, 25, of Indonesia, have pleaded not guilty in the killing of the half brother, who had been returning home to Macau and was traveling on a passport in the name of Kim Chol.

"To get peace, President Abbas has to embrace peace and stop supporting terror".
