South and North Korea to Hold Meeting for Peace on May 16
Trump has insisted he won't repeat the mistakes of the past, when agreements for North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons broke down due to disputes over inspections and the delivery of economic aid.
Kim is slated for a historic meeting with PresidentDonald Trump on June 12, which Pompeo said will "put our two leaders in a position where it's just possible we might pull off a historical undertaking". "They need enormous amounts of electricity in North Korea".
But at different points, he also appeared to suggest that a deal might come up shy of making North Korea get rid of all of its current nukes. Trump is already tweeting about complete "denuclearisation", whereas North Korea has indicated it is, at best, committed now to a pause in its nuclear programme as it prepares to assess what the United States brings to the table.
"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.
Still, Pompeo's comments in a separate interview with Fox News Sunday spurred questions about whether the U.S. would accept a deal that simply prevents North Korea from being able to hit the American homeland with a nuclear bomb.
"Five years ago, the United States conveyed that the facilities are an issue", the diplomatic source well informed on matters of the North-U.S. summit told the JoongAng Ilbo on Monday.
Look, we'll have to see how the negotiations proceed, but make no mistake about it: America's interest here is preventing the risk that North Korea will launch a nuclear weapon into [Los Angeles] or Denver or into the very place we're sitting here this morning, Chris.
Pompeo told "Fox News Sunday" that any deal paving the way for a nuclear-free Korean peninsula will have to include certain United States safeguards reassuring Kim he won't become a target of yet another regime change attempt.
Regardless of what sort of deal Trump and Kim will try to reach during their summit, American officials are adhering to the position that they will not allow a repeat of North Korea pledging denuclearization and then reneging on those pledges as in the past.
"We can create conditions for real economic prosperity for the North Korean people that will rival that of the South", he added.
