3:01 am
to the program talks have begun between north korea's former spy chief kim yong children and u.s. secretary of state might pompei o kim touched down in new york earlier making him the most senior north korean official to visit the u.s. in eighteen years the white house says early meetings about next month's summit between kim jong il and president trump have been positive and it's still expected to take place well let's cross over now to our diplomatic editor james bays who's in new york of course or the talking begins but we can only perhaps guess what will be on the agenda as they discuss all the issues over dinner. the other dinner is taking place now where a few blocks away from the united nations what is behind me is an apartment block and here there is one of the apartments. it's
3:02 am
a residence which is occupied by the u.s. mission to the united nations and i am assuming that residence which we understand is not got a diplomat living in the moment is what they see as a suitable secure space where they can talk about the secrets of north korea's nuclear program if of course just general kim is prepared to divulge them this part of pretty hectic diplomacy going on the general is only here in new york for two days and it's now less than two weeks ahead of the date when that summit that all off so it's in singapore is supposed to take place and of course encouraging sounds james about the potential summit but the issue and sort of the. issue of denuclearization is a fractious one and each side of the has a very different view on what that means. absolutely exactly how do you denuclearize north korea and as the north koreans always talk
3:03 am
about denuclearization of the korean peninsula in the past suggested that means the u.s. has to pull its troops out of south korea which of course come under south korea comes under the nuclear umbrella of the united states and what does the u.s. have to do in return for north korea dismantling its nuclear weapons program north korea wants a guarantee of non-aggression so a great deal to work out here before they can give the got to go ahead either side can say that they want to go to that summit that is supposed to take place in singapore secretary of state pompei o.s.b. leading the diplomacy on this interesting that also we spotted here a top cia official andy kim who was with secretary of state pompei on his two trips to pyongyang yes might pop a zero is six years state now but the first trip he was the head of the cia and a lot of the work behind the scenes is actually not. being done by the state
3:04 am
department is being done by the cia and of course james while those parts optimism that the process is moving forward there is a there and edge of caution to all of this because the international community perhaps isn't so sure about what sort of pressure it could apply to north korea if these talks should fail and what action the u.s. might even take. yes i mean i think there are very limited options if all of this goes wrong what do you do then well of course we've heard not far from where i'm standing in the u.n. general assembly in september president trump said he's prepared to destroy a north korea. prepared to start a nuclear war and get rid of north korea every other country in the world and i'm sure most of the diplomats at the state department would not want that option so the other option is to put more pressure through sanctions that i think is
3:05 am
a little harder now that north korea's been so heavily engaged in diplomacy show that it's prepared to talk and given that we've seen a very different side of the north korean leader we've seen him smiling we've seen him chatting we seen him giving a bear hug to his south korean counterpart difficult i think to get that broad international support for even tougher sanctions. and of course we'll leave it there for now james come back to you when that situation develops thank you and of course those talks are under way in new york they're also meetings being held in singapore and the demilitarized zone between north and south korea and to thomas has the latest from seoul. it's been known that there's been a u.s. team and a north korean team in singapore there to sort out the logistics of any summit where the respective delegations will stay security protocol those sorts of things we now think that those two delegations have met him and so on has been seen riding a golf buggy inside the hotel where the u.s.
3:06 am
delegation is staying in the demilitarized zone at the same time the talks are going on on the agenda and the issues to be discussed they started on sunday they were continuing on wednesday and those of caution though has been raised by admiral harry harris now he's the outgoing admiral in charge of the u.s. pacific command and during a speech in hawaii to hand over the reins of that operation he reminded everybody of what is at stake he said that north korea remains the most imminent threat for the u.s. and a nuclear capable north korea with missiles that can reach the united states is unacceptable it's been nicely nicely over the last few days no one really criticizing anybody everyone trying to keep the summit on track but those comments there are just a reminder of what is at stake. the u.n. security council is holding motions the session after a flare up of violence at the gaza border israel struck dozens of targets inside the gaza strip and choose day after
