US To Help North Korea Upon Nuclear Surrender - Pompeo

President Donald Trump is set to meet with Kim in Singapore in June. The majority of people in North Korea live in poverty. Five were returned in 2002, but it is not satisfied with North Korea's explanations about the fate of the others.

Mr Pompeo said he had "good, substantive" conversations with Mr Kim in Pyongyang in what was his second meeting with the North Korea leader in less that six weeks, and believed both sides understood the ultimate goal of the summit.

The release of Kim Hak-song, Tony Kim, and Kim Dong-chul removed one obstacle, providing Trump with evidence that his twin-track policy of engagement and "maximum pressure" is working.

If North Korea follows through on its pledge to fully give up its nuclear weapons program and end years of hostility toward the US and its allies, American companies stand ready to put tens of millions of dollars into the reclusive country to help bring it into the 21st century, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday morning.

USA officials had made it clear to their North Korean counterparts that the Americans' release was paramount. Kim has said that North Korea now has the capability to strike the continental United States.

Kim Jong-un has made clear that development is a priority. Trump said on Twitter.

"I'm very honored to have helped the three folks", he said.

"I think this will be a very big success".

The two men exchanged fiery rhetoric a year ago over North Korea's attempts to build a nuclear weapon that could reach the United States but tensions have since calmed considerably. He was arrested in October 2015.

Amid concerns North Korea will demand the US withdraw its troops from neighboring South Korea, Ms Kang emphasised the US military presence there must be "a matter for the US-ROK alliance first and foremost", using an acronym for South Korea's official name, the Republic of Korea.

He was sentenced in April 2016 to 10 years of hard labor.

They were detained in 2017 and charged with "hostile acts" against the North Korean state.

The men released a statement through the State Department: "We would like to express our deep appreciation to the United States government, President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, and the people of the United States for bringing us home".

Trump has touted the expected meeting, saying expects it to be a success.

The US has also said it will give a package to help nation boost living stands to levels like those in prosperous South Korea if it gets rid of its nuclear weapons in a permanent and verifiable way, he said. In his meeting with Kim this week, though, Xi endorsed "phased and synchronous measures" that would "eventually achieve denuclearization and lasting peace on the peninsula".

This is a developing story.
