Pompeo meeting with North Korean envoy delayed

Japan's economy expanded at a slightly faster pace than first thought revised figures showed June 8 knocking hopes that the central bank will unleash fresh stimul

Pompeo will meet with his North Korean counterpart, Kim Yong-chol, in NY on Thursday to continue discussions on the denuclearization of the regime.

"We will reconvene when our respective schedules permit", she said.

That meeting, and Kim Yong-chol's subsequent visit with Trump at the White House, led the USA president to put the summit back on for June 12 in Singapore.

China and Russian Federation have said the council should reward Pyongyang for the "positive developments" after U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met in June and Kim pledged to work toward denuclearization.

The high-level North-U.S. talks had been set to take place in New York Thursday, a follow-up to Pompeo's fourth visit to Pyongyang last month.

USA critics say that North Korea has yet to make any concrete concessions and it has rejected demands for what it described as its "unilateral disarmament". "I'd love to take the sanctions off, but they (North Korea) have to be responsive, too", Trump said on Wednesday.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigns at Donald Trump's request
Trump also mocked the House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, who is favoured to be the next Speaker from January 2019. The firing of the attorney general is no shock - but nobody expected it to come quite so soon after the midterms.

"In terms of the North Korea-US issue, the Democrats also want a diplomatic solution".

But experts say North Korea's moves so far are largely cosmetic and easily reversible.

Last Friday, North Korea's Foreign Ministry criticized the US for its continued support of sanctions and hinted it may resume nuclear development.

We start with some news just in within the past hour or so.

In mid-October, Pompeo invoked the possibility of a second summit, preceded by talks with Kim Yong Chol.

"Russia requested consultations on the topic of sanctions against North Korea during tomorrow's general consultations at UN SC. There's no rush whatsoever", Trump told reporters at the White House.

Tallahassee Memorial Hospital has confirmed they were treating five people with gunshot wounds, before one passed away. The authorities were investigating to determine Beierle's connection to the yoga studio and the victims.

Moon's office said the USA notified the government of the delay before the public announcement.

Trump spoke after his Republican Party lost control of the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday after the Democrats rode a wave of dissatisfaction with his presidency in mid-term elections.

At that meeting, Kim, who is seeking relief from tough USA -led sanctions, committed to work toward denuclearization, but his steps since have fallen short of US demands for irreversible moves to abandon a weapons program that potentially threatens the United States.

Some analysts believe this weakened state could impact Trump's foreign policy and test his North Korean diplomatic gambit.

But the deal has resulted in few tangible results, other than the US suspension of some military exercises with South Korea, and North Korea's stated dismantlement of certain nuclear and missile testing sites, which the USA says falls short of its expectations.
