US, North Korea to exert efforts until denuclearization goal reached

The US and North Korea are making efforts to achieve the denuclearization goal.

The statement was made on Friday when the two sides have been in negotiations to implement an agreement reached by US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at their historic summit in June.

The joint statement commits Kim to work toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for security guarantees from the US. But progress has appeared slow as the two sides wrangle over who should take the first step. Last Sunday, US Ambassador to Seoul Harry Harris met with North Korea's Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui at Panmunjom village to deliver a message from Washington. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is rumored to be preparing for a fourth visit to Pyongyang in the coming days.
