US offers ‘unique’ security guarantees to North Korea 

Singapore: The US today offered “unique” security guarantees to North Korea in return for a “complete, verifiable and irreversible” denuclearisation as the two sides made “progress” in negotiations on the eve of a historic summit between President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un here that could reshape the geopolitics of the Asia-Pacific region.Ahead of the much-anticipated summit at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island, Trump hoped that a “nice” outcome could be reached from what he said would be a “very interesting meeting” with Kim which will focus on the nuclear arsenal the North has spent decades developing.The summit, the first between a sitting US president and the North Korean leader, will mark a turnaround of relations between Trump and Kim after a long-running exchange of furious threats and insults.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the preparatory talks were “moving quite rapidly” and he expected them to reach what he called “a logical conclusion” even earlier than the US anticipated.  “He has made it clear that if Kim Jong Un denuclearises there is a brighter future for North Korea. Tomorrow, we will get our clearest indication to date of whether Kim Jong Un truly shares this vision.”
