8:02 pm
had offered to cut back on its nuclear weapons program if it received security guarantees the south korean delegation has returned home a day after meeting with the north korean leader in pyongyang it was the first time that kim jong un met with south korean officials since taking power here's what south korea's top security official had to say. the north clearly expressed its willingness for denuclearizing the korean peninsula and clarify that there's no reason for them to retain nuclear weapons if military threats against them are removed and if the safety of its regime is guaranteed. artless good washington now and bring in our correspondent carson phenomena he's on the story for us this evening good evening to you car stood so john yang hinting that talks with the u.s. could be on the table how skeptical is washington about this all.
8:03 pm
very skeptical the director of national intelligence dan coats told senators in the u.s. congress today that he was very doubtful that this was really a major breakthrough and vice president mike pence in the statements all options are on the table and our posture towards the regime will not change until we see credible very fireball and concrete steps towards the nuclear zation which in my view will most not happen because if we can judge from the behavior of the regime in pyongyang in recent years for them nuclear weapons are kind of a lifeline and insurance against a u.s. attack a u.s. military intervention so why should they give up those weapons now that they apparently have them and we know that there is deep mutual suspicion between north korea and the u.s. is there any way that the trump administration could say no to talks with north
8:04 pm
korea without the u.s. appearing to be the problem. well the trump ministration of course could do that and they might if they think that this. was not serious that north korea is just playing for time but having said that kili kim jong un the north korean dictator is playing this game very well and he's playing his cards very well his first goal was to establish north korea as a defacto nuclear power and he apparently has achieved that the north koreans might still have some problems to put nuclear warheads on long range missiles but they've made enough progress to make south korea and other neighbors in the region really concerned and keen now to stabilize the situation step two was to reach out to south korea and by this try to drive a venture between the u.s. and south korea because the south koreans of course don't want american military
8:05 pm
action while the talks are going on and step three now is to offer talks to the americans and as you said it might look bad for america if they start something on the military. while talks are going on a while neighbors like china think there is a chance for a peaceful solution so well played by kim jong un and even if the u.s. and north korea were to hold talks how widely carsten would a compromise be. well i can't really see a compromise because basically the regime in north korea has made it clear over years and years that it sees nuclear weapons and long range missiles as its best guarantee against the attempt to overthrow its regime in north korea so once again why should they give that up now my assessment is that north korea is
