WEB Notes: In other news US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, “Sanctions relief cannot take place at such time until we can determine denuclearization is complete.” Of course, you must ensure compliance before removing any sanctions. I still do not believe North Korea is a threat, but this is just good practice.
North and South Korea are slated to engage in high-level military talks on Thursday for the first time in more than 10 years, a new report states.
The discussions are designed to build upon South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in April, which resulted in an agreement to sign a peace treaty and a stated dedication to denuclearization, South Korea’s Yonhap News reports.
The discussions will likely target restoring inter-border military communications, establishing regular military talks, and creating a hotline for North and South Korean military leaders, per Yonhap.
