Who Will Pay for Rebuilding of N.Korea?

North Korea has suspended high-level talks with South Korea due to US-South Korean military exercises and warned that a summit next month between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump could be in jeopardy.

The defector said the regime might be looking into tourism projects near coastal areas and eventually seek joint economic projects with South Korea. Also in the delegation will be Kim Yun-hyok, vice minister of railways, and Won Kil-U, vice minister of physical culture and sports.

The analysis was made public before North Korea holds a ceremony for dismantling the Punggye-ri site between May 23 and May 25, depending on weather conditions, in the presence of worldwide media.

Meanwhile, disarmament experts have raised questions about the safety and verification of North Korea's shutdown of its nuclear test site. The southern and western portals could still support detonations, even if the northern side was badly damaged over the five nuclear tests conducted there, 38 North said April 30.

White House National Security Adviser John Bolton said the U.S.is ready to open trade and investments in North Korea as soon as possible.

South Korea welcomed the announcement, which signalled the North's willingness to carry out its pledges "not just in words but in action".

US officials have started discussing how to ship nuclear weapons out of North Korea and provide economic aid in return.

The North also is widely believed to have as many as 60 nuclear weapons and production facilities that were not affected.

He said: "In the end, North Korea will remain a nuclear power packaged as a non-nuclear state".

North Korea on Tuesday threatened to cancel the upcoming USA summit over joint military drills between the US and South Korea, Yonhap News reported.

North and South Korean leaders were scheduled to meet for crucial talks on Wednesday in the city of Panmunjom, South Korea.

"If Chairman Kim chooses the right path, there is a future brimming with peace and prosperity for the North Korean people", said U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and this seems to be the philosophy taken by many U.S. officials as they move forward on this new, unexpected path with North Korea.

"It's like closing the abdomen when you find a cancer tumor during surgery", Seo said in an interview with a local broadcaster on Monday.

The objective of the new buildings at the Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Centre was unknown, 38 North has said, with "no observable signs that initial reactor operations are imminent". The U.S. -set deadline for denuclearization is 2020.

Reporters from China, Russia, the United States, Britain and South Korea would be allowed to cover the event on site to show it "in a transparent manner".

The site analyzed images which show significant changes that have been made at the location which are consistent with decommissioning.
