North Korea will have a great future if the country makes s deal with the USA. If it refuses from the denuclearization, it will suffer severe economic consequences, U.S. President Donald Trump said at the Conservative Political Action Conference, as Reuters reports.
Despite the unsuccessful second summit between the leaders due to the unwillingness of the USA to withdraw sanctions from North Korea, Trump assured that the relationship with North Korea seemed to be “very, very strong.”
The United States and North Korea say they intend to continue talks but have not specified when.
Analysts believe North Korea has from 20 to 60 nuclear warheads which could threaten the U.S. mainland if fitted to its intercontinental ballistic missiles. The United Nations and the United States ratcheted up sanctions when North Korea conducted nuclear and ballistic missile tests in 2017.
As we reported earlier, The U.S. President Donald Trump and his North Korean colleague Kim Jong Un have abruptly cut short their two-day summit in Hanoi after they failed to reach an agreement to dismantle the nuclear weapons of Pyongyang.
At the press conference, held after Trump’s return, the President said he and Kim did not agree to hold a third summit. In addition, according to the U.S. President, Kim promised not to carry out missile launchers or test nuclear weapons.
The parties have not reached compromise on the key issue - denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
“He has a certain vision. It’s not exactly our vision, but it’s a lot closer than it was a year ago,” Trump said.
