Original title: the head of the Korean intelligence agency visited the United States to call for a partial lifting of sanctions against the DPRK.
South Korean government sources said in July 31st that Xu Xun, President of the National Intelligence Institute, visited the United States on -29 July 26th, and some senior officials from the United States had discussed the sanctions against the DPRK.
According to Yonhap, Xu Xun met with Secretary of state Pompeio and the CIA director Gina Jasper, respectively, during the visit, and the US government was responsible for the policy of the DPRK. Xu Xun repeatedly asked the United States to lift sanctions against the DPRK on such matters as the opening of the Korea-DPRK Liaison Office and other matters related to the promotion of dialogue and cooperation between the two Koreas.
However, the position of the US side on Xu Xun's request is not clear. Recently, the US government stressed the need to maintain sanctions against North Korea until the DPRK abandoned its nuclear weapons. Pompeio telephones with South Korea's Unification Minister Zhao Mingjun on July 25th, demanding that the ROK comply with the sanctions against North Korea.
In fact, South Korean foreign minister Kang Jing and June 20th also said that sanctions against North Korea would be kept in Pyongyang to convince the parties concerned that "the DPRK is completely denuclearization".
The US DPRK relations have eased since the summit of the US DPRK held in Singapore in June 12th. However, on June 14, U.S. Secretary of State Pompeio stressed that sanctions against North Korea could only be lifted after complete denuclearization.
The president of the United States, Donald Trump, also signed an administrative order in June 22nd to extend the state of emergency involving the DPRK (threats) to the present for a year and maintain economic sanctions against the DPRK in 2008.
According to Yonhap on July 31st, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of state of the United States Department of state of the State Council, Mark Lanbot, met with the Kaesong industrial park in the Kaesong industrial park in the United States at the Kaesong industrial park on 26 days, and said that unless the Korean denuclearization made progress, it would not be able to relax the sanctions on the DPRK. It is not appropriate for the Han Dynasty to restart economic cooperation projects.
The sources said that Xu Xun also discussed the situation on the peninsula after the US talks on the United States and the United States, and how Korea and the United States led the DPRK to realize the denuclearization of the peninsula.
