    Expecting 'positive' letter from Kim, says Trump

    US President Donald Trump has said he is expecting a "positive" letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Speaking to reporters on Friday on Air Force One, Trump said that "I know that a letter is being delivered to me, a personal letter from Kim Jong Un to me," Xinhua news agency reported. "It was handed at the border yesterday," Trump said. "It's actually an elegant way... and I think it's going to be a positive letter." "The letter is being delivered to me ... I think it's being brought in by Mike Pompeo," he added. At the conclusion of the historic Trump-Kim summit in June, the two sides issued a joint statement, in which they agreed to improve bilateral relations and work together to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the peninsula. However, the current North Korea-US talks have been stuck in an impasse due to their differences in the scale of denuclearization, US sanctions, and whether to issue a war-ending declaration. Kim told South Korea's envoy on Wednesday that he firmly supports and will be devoted to completely removing the danger of armed conflicts and the horrors of war from the Korean Peninsula and turning it into a cradle of peace without nuclear weapons and free from any nuclear threat. Trump tweeted later on Thursday in response, thanking Kim for making such a statement and noting that "we will get it done together," referring to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Also on Thursday, the US State Department said that special representative for North Korea issue, Stephen Biegun, will travel to the capital cities of South Korea, China and Japan on September 10-15 to discuss the denuclearization of North Korea. Biegun "will meet with his counterparts and continue diplomatic efforts to achieve the final, fully verified denuclearization of North Korea as agreed to by Chairman Kim in Singapore," the State Department said in a statement.

    UN chief welcomes Kim's commitment to denuclearize Korean Peninsula

    UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has welcomed the commitment made by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to realize the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. "The Secretary-General commends the continued momentum and efforts by both Koreas to further trust-building and reconciliation, in line with the Panmunjom Declaration," said Guterres on Thursday in a statement issued by his spokesman Stephane Dujarric, Xinhua reported. "He looks forward to further progress at the inter-Korean summit later this month towards sustainable peace, security, and complete and verifiable denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, in accordance with relevant Security Council resolutions," said the spokesman. Kim reconfirmed his firm commitment to the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, South Korean President Moon Jae-in's special envoy said in a press briefing after visiting Pyongyang on Wednesday.

    US envoy to visit S.Korea, China, Japan on N.Korea denuclearization

    The US State Department has said special representative for North Korea issue, Stephen Biegun, will travel to the capital cities of South Korea, China and Japan on September 10-15 to discuss the denuclearization of North Korea. Biegun "will meet with his counterparts and continue diplomatic efforts to achieve the final, fully verified denuclearization of North Korea as agreed to by Chairman Kim in Singapore," the State Department said in a statement on Thursday, Xinhua reported. The current North Korea-US talks have been stuck in an impasse due to their differences in the scale of denuclearization, US sanctions, and whether to issue a war-ending declaration. The State Department said last month that the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula shall happen before the US signs a war-ending declaration with North Korea; while North Korea has argued that such a document is the first step towards peace on the peninsula, whereas Washington has said it is too early to discuss the topic. US media reported earlier that the signing of a joint declaration to formally end the Korean War was one of the verbal agreements between US President Donald Trump and North Korea's top leader, Kim Jong-un, when they met on June 12 in Singapore. Kim told South Korea's envoy on Wednesday that he firmly supports and will be devoted to completely removing the danger of armed conflicts and the horrors of war from the Korean Peninsula and turning it into a cradle of peace without nuclear weapons and free from any nuclear threat. Trump tweeted later on Thursday in response, thanking Kim for making such a statement and noting that "we will get it done together," referring to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

    The chief special envoy of South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday said the envoys will discuss ways to completely denuclearize the Korean Peninsula during their scheduled travel to North Korea. Chung Eui-yong, top national security adviser for Moon who will lead the five-member special delegation, told reporters that the delegation will discuss ways to permanently achieve peace on the peninsula through complete denuclearization, Xinhua reported. Improved inter-Korean relations, the denuclearized Korean Peninsula and peace settlement would be discussed with their North Korean counterparts during the special envoys' visit to Pyongyang, Chung noted. Moon's special emissaries were slated to take an air route over the western inter-Korean sea boundary to Pyongyang on Wednesday and return home the same day. Chung said the emissaries will discuss with their North Korean counterparts ways to advance inter-Korean relations through the implementation of the Panmunjom Declaration, which Moon and top North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed following their first summit in April at the border village of Panmunjom. Moon and Kim agreed to hold their third summit in Pyongyang before the end of September. Chung said they will also discuss a detailed schedule and dialogue agenda for the upcoming summit. Chung will also deliver a letter from President Moon to Kim. Whether the special envoys will meet Kim has yet to be decided.
