Trump says no 'time limit' on North Korea denuclearisation

President Donald Trump said Tuesday there is no hurry to denuclearize North Korea under his accord with Kim Jong Un - a shift in tone from when the United States leader said the process would start very soon.

Russian Federation has agreed to help the US negotiate with North Korea, President Donald Trump said Wednesday ― the same day a summit between Moscow and Pyongyang was announced. "We're just going through the process". Mike Pompeo will be discussing this with the North Koreans in the near future, about how to dismantle all of their [weapons of mass destruction] and ballistic missile programmes in a year.

North Korea even issued an angry statement as soon as he left, . accusing his delegation of making "gangster-like" demands of the North.

The Trump administration has generally presented negotiations with North Korea as moving forward, but stressed the need to maintain full sanctions pressure until key denuclearization objectives are achieved.

The president's latest comments on the timeline for denuclearisation appear to shift from his position ahead of the summit with Mr Kim, when he said denuclearisation should start "without delay".

However, they said that dialogue was contingent on the condition that North Korea give up its nuclear weapons.

There are reasons to think Russian Federation is at least somewhat amenable to the idea of denuclearizing North Korea, and they might want it badly enough to stick with the program even if the USA refuses to be shaken down for additional concessions.

Trump and Kim met last month in a historic summit last month.

The job for the USA now, he said, is "to get the entire country to understand that they have that strategically wrong".
