Quoted from the official page of the Pentagon, Tuesday (12/06/2018), This was conveyed by US Secretary of Defense James Norman Mattis.

But before that, Mattis said, the US will also discuss it with allied countries. It means South Korea, Japan and of course North Korea.

“Yes, that is part of the issue we will discuss in negotiations with our allies first and, of course, with North Korea,” Mattis said.

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are scheduled to meet in May or early June 2018 to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The two formerly threatened leaders will negotiate to shut down North Korea’s nuclear program permanently.

The United States has been involved in a campaign of maximum pressure on North Korea and led the international community to impose some rounds of sanctions on Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons and missile programs.
