International pressure on North Korea allegedly easing

All papers took up Secretary of State Pompeo’s remarks made to the CNN in which he expressed the view that the U.S. will not set a deadline for North Korea’s denuclearization. Nikkei wrote that this remark is incompatible with press remarks made earlier by an unnamed senior DOD official, who suggested that the Trump administration is expected to make “specific asks” and press for a “specific timeline” on denuclearization. The national daily opined that international pressure on Pyongyang has apparently begun to weaken following the Singapore summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, expressing concern that the Kim regime may put off fulfilling its commitment to complete denuclearization.
