North Korea has a reputation for being unstable and inconsistent on its commitments, and the United States too, with its recent move of unilaterally pulling out of the Iran deal, has damaged its reputation on the worldwide front.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that Washington would agree to lift sanctions on North Korea if the country agrees to completely dismantle its nuclear weapons program, a move that would create economic prosperity that "will rival" that of South Korea.

In a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping this month, Kim called for the U.S. and North Korea to build trust through "phased and synchronous measures" that would lead to a political settlement "and eventually achieve denuclearization".

"Kim expressed concern, telling Xi that the United States has said it will provide economic assistance to North Korea after Pyongyang completes denuclearization, but that he can not trust it will keep that promise", the daily added.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gives field guidance to the Taedonggang Terrapin Farm according to this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in Pyongyang, North Korea, on May 19, 2015. "The likelihood is that Trump's withdrawal from the Iran deal didn't fundamentally alter Kim Jong-Un's thinking about US posture", Russel said.

"This visit is a concrete example of the important consensus between (Communist Party) General Secretary Xi Jinping and Chairman Kim Jong Un", foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a regular press briefing, confirming media reports about the trip.

"The objective for North Korea is to see whether they want to become a normal nation", he said. They also agreed to stop all hostile acts over "land, sea and air" that can cause military tensions and clashes, establish a liaison office in the North Korean border town of Kaesong, and to resume temporary reunions between war-separated families. "He'll probably watch this show at some point".

"Make no mistake about it: America's interest here is preventing the risk that North Korea will launch a nuclear weapon into LA or Denver or into the very place we're sitting here this morning", Pompeo said.

He has turned on the charisma in meetings with both US and South Korean officials. North Korea has a very extensive programme. "They don't make it more prosperous", Bolton said.
