Possibility of N. Korea-U.S. dialogue within this year ‘very low’: Analysts


some experts believe while North Korea
appears to have tested a solid fuel engine for launching ICBMs the regime is
unlikely to go ahead and such missiles in the launch such missiles in the near
future they also add Pyongyang and Washington may not hold talks anytime
soon Oh jung-hee shares with us the analysis well into the final month of
2019 and with the end of the year just around the corner Pyongyang continues to
test Washington’s limits on Saturday North
Korea’s ambassador to the UN kim jong threatened an end to the nuclear
negotiations saying denuclearization is already off the table the remark was
followed shortly by what North Korea called
a very important test widely seen to be of a solid-fuel ICBM engine considering
the limits of liquid fuel missiles which need time to be fuelled and therefore
can be detected prior to an actual launch North Korea has always seen a
need for solid fuel missiles there for what they call a new and strategic test
is highly likely to be a solid fuel ICBM engine testing something that helps fire
an ICBM more quickly and discreetly North Korea is pressing the u.s. to come
up with a new approach by the end of the year in an ever stronger tone what
experts think the north won’t go as far as to actually fire ICBMs as that could
completely destroy its dialogue opportunity with the u.s. Kim Jong moon
is going to have to show a little bit of patience and restraint when it comes to
this deadline he could test an intermediate-range ballistic missile he
could launch a satellite he could launch maybe more submarine launched ballistic
missiles he does not have to go to an ICBM or nuclear test if he does those
things Donald Trump is going to be forced to respond and does it mean
military action but we’re looking at maximum pressure 2.0 we’re looking at
more sanctions the two sides resuming talks before the year ends may help
alleviate the escalating tensions but pundits see the possibility of
working-level talks bearing fruit as very low
we’re hearing that the US Special Representative for North Korea Stephen
begun my visit South Korea so we can’t rule out the possibility of a dramatic
meeting between the north and the u.s. taking place at Panmunjom but because
the two sides haven’t been making progress I think it’s difficult for them
to hold any practical working-level talks over the weekend the presidents of
South Korea and the u.s. spoke on the phone
according to source presidential office the talks were held at Washington’s
request and were focused on the North Korean nuclear issue that’s a call for
South Korea to play a role in the month-long stalled negotiations experts
suggest sir should step in and mediate use whatever back channels it has to
tell the north that the red line should not be crossed
