China claims credit for N Korea talks

US President Donald Trump said North Korea seemed "sincere".

Under US law, when a country or leader violates its ban on chemical and biological weapons, an import ban is imposed on its products, but North Korea is already under severe US and United Nations sanctions, and Tuesday's decision will have little impact. "This administration may not be willing to do that".

"I think that's been a factor, but the sanctions have been very, very strong, and very biting".

More cross-border exchanges are expected between the two Koreas as they prepare for a summit between the North's Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in next month. No replacement nominees have been announced.

North Korea has yet to confirm the concessions Seoul says Pyongyang has offered so its motives are open to interpretation.

'While pursuing a fundamental resolution of the standoff, we need to take some initial denuclearisation steps, putting a halt to further testing and returning to dialogue, a senior South Korean government official said. "Would you agree to direct talks if they agree to just suspend any types of tests right now? We're going to see what happens".

"It is something only the Dear Leader can say", said Professor Koo Kab-woo of the University of North Korean Studies, adding that it was a "typical" example of Kim's "autonomy". "The proper way is the way that everybody knows and everybody wants". But the USA group of officials who take a hardline approach say that is a nonstarter.

Mr Kim surprised the South Korean diplomats not only by accepting joint South Korean-United States military drills as a reality, but also by expressing a willingness to start negotiations with Washington on ending his nuclear weapons program.

During the four-hour dinner, Kim also expressed an openness to entering talks with the US over denuclearization. "I think you are going to see a drop-off in worldwide support for pressure for pressure's sake".

Possible progress being made in talks with North Korea.

The U.S State Department has not yet made any official statements regarding South Korea's announcement, though President Trump did take to Twitter to weigh in.

McMaster's own position in the White House is in question and he is reported to be under consideration for a four-star general's job in the military.

Toward the general public, Mr Kim has cast himself as a "people loving" leader, one reminiscent of his grandfather and North Korea's founder, Kim Il-sung, officially revered as a godlike figure.

"However, if there are talks between the United States and North Korea before the drills [begin] there may be some compromise", Moon added.

"These global efforts can not be loosened by inter-Korean dialogue". That move was so successful it laid the groundwork for the South Korean visit this week.

It comes after the U.S. concluded the secretive state murdered Kim Jong Un's half brother Kim Jong Nam, with the nerve agent VX. The discussions are likely to be contentious in the wake of the U.S. president's claims that Seoul is not paying enough. We will see if chaos brings peace, but it beats the heck out of complacency and bullets.
