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

According to the Straits Times, a Singapore-based news outlet, North Korea plans to host a Pyongyang-based (NK Capital) conference regarding cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology in October of this year.

"In coordination with the ROK (South Korean) government, the UN Command respectfully declined the August 23 request for government officials to visit to North Korea through Transportation Corridor-West while requesting more fidelity on the details of the proposed visit", the UNC, which oversees the cease-fire that ended the 1950-53 Korean War and activities within the DMZ, said in a text message sent to reporters Thursday.

Kim Jong Un publicly expressed admiration for South Korea's railways during a summit in April.

'Part of the North Korea problem is caused by the trade disputes with China, ' Trump said.

China co-operated with the United States past year in adopting tough worldwide sanctions against North Korea and maintains it is still enforcing the restrictions adopted by the UN Security Council. -South Korea military exercises - Ulchi Freedom Guardian and two Korean Marine Exchange Program operations - had been suspended officially.

"If he does, they will be far bigger than ever before", the White House statement issued from the president said.

Sue Mi Terry, senior fellow and Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, is skeptical that North Korea intends to give up its nuclear weapons and argues that doing a peace treaty or declaration upfront would not necessarily lead to further steps.

In the past week, the United States has hit China with $16 billion in tariffs on Chinese imports.

Trump has threatened to impose more tariffs on some $200 billion in Chinese imports and Beijing has promised retaliation.


With 2,000 US military personnel in Syria, Mattis also laid out the requirements to withdraw American forces, a goal Trump announced in April when he said he wanted it to happen "very soon". But the USA government has not yet decided whether to hold Ulchi Freedom Guardian in 2019. -China trade disputes, and other differences, they will be resolved in time by President Trump and China's great President Xi Jinping'. "Their relationship and bond remain very strong", the statement read.

Hua said that China has reiterated its position on the issue.

The opening of an inter Korean liaison office in the North Korean town of Kaesong has been delayed because of U.S. concerns it would break United Nations sanctions, South Korean media reported.

Despite Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's efforts since then to build on the bilateral summit, the administration has little to show for it.

Pompeo was scheduled to visit North Korea again this week before the trip was cancelled last minute.

President Donald Trump announced the suspension of drills, which have long drawn the ire of Pyongyang, in the wake of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore in June. If the USA does turn these large exercises back on, have they now become provocative wargames?

A South Korea presidential spokesman acknowledged that talks between Washington and Pyongyang were at a stalemate.

"We suspended several exercises at the direction of the president", Mattis said.
