Trump Says China To Blame For Hurting U.S.-North Korean Relations

  • North Korea will reportedly host its own cryptocurrency and blockchain conference

US intelligence and defense officials have repeatedly expressed doubts about North Korea's willingness to give up its nuclear weapons and they had not expected Pompeo's trip to yield positive results.

In a statement carried by state media in 2015, Kim said a high-speed railway should be built between Pyongyang and a new global airport near the capital. -South Korea military exercises are scheduled for next April.

But he added that if they did restart, the exercises would be "bigger than ever".

U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis says plans for next year's Foal Eagle exercise with South Korea are not cancelled yet, . adding to his previous remarks hinting at a possible resumption of the joint military exercises.

On Wednesday, he reiterated that no decisions had been made about suspending any future exercises and stressed the importance of the USA alliance with South Korea.

In a diplomatic gesture to Pyongyang in June, Trump suspended what he called "war games" with South Korea, saying he believed Kim "wants to get it done" on denuclearisation.

Despite protestations, the Boly's dodgy goal was allowed to stand and City were left with an embarrassing predicament to dig themselves out of.

The move was broadly criticized as a premature concession to North Korea, which has appeared to resist USA moves to persuade it to give up its nuclear weapons. At the time, Trump cited lack of progress on denuclearization as the reason. Weeks before the games, the US had held the wing-level exercise Beverly Herd - which officials at the time characterized as "non-major" - with counterparts at Osan Air Base.

'The Department of Defense suspended three individual military exercises in order to provide space for our diplomats to negotiate the verifiable, irreversible and complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, ' Mattis said in a statement.

Andray Abrahamian, a North Korea specialist at Griffith University, told Fairfax Media that Trump was probably seeking to clarify Mattis's widely reported comments that indicated military drills may resume - their suspension was a key concession made by Trump to North Korea at the Singapore Summit. Often the North has reacted to the exercises with its own demonstrations of military might, including firing a new intermediate-range missile over Japan previous year as a countermeasure to the drills.

North Korea sent emails that could hack into cryptocurrency exchanges and their customers' private information and stole (cryptocurrency) worth billions of won.

On June 12, President Donald Trump seemed to catch the Pentagon off guard when he announced that the United States would suspend Ulchi Freedom Guardian, which he called "tremendously expensive" and "very provocative".

Mattis' announcement seemed to indicate the US government is taking a harder line on North Korea, but he clarified that USA officials have not yet decided whether to proceed with next year's Ulchi Freedom Guardian or other training events, such as Foal Eagle. RFA, yet another news agency, reported that following the full length of the conference, North Korea intends to bring world-renowned blockchain and cryptocurrencies experts into the same room to meet with NK business executives. He said that the tone of the letter was "if you're not willing to give something, then don't come".
