36 tourists, most from China, killed in bus accident in North Korea

South Koreans have lived for decades under the threat of war with their hostile and now nuclear-armed neighbour 36 tourists, most from China, killed in bus accident in North Korea

US officials have said they want complete, verifiable and irreversible disarmament by North Korea.

Chinese diplomats have rushed to the scene of Sunday's accident in North Hwanghae province, the foreign ministry said.

Getting Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear missile programs has been the aim of all global negotiations with North Korea since the early 1990s, yet past year it tested what is widely believed to have been an H-bomb and intercontinental ballistic missiles.

While the summit in late-May or June with U.S. President Donald Trump matters for propaganda reasons, Kim needs the summit to succeed.

"We hope that our move today will result in South and North Korea ending mutual slandering and propaganda against each other and creating a peaceful new beginning." she said. After North Korea declared on Saturday, April 21, that it would suspend its nuclear programme and also shut its site and pursue economic development and peace instead, now South Korea has also come up a decision. And so South Korea is offering an olive branch ahead of this week's summit, silencing the speakers it uses along the border to spew K-pop tunes, weather reports, and other propaganda. The commitment was delivered in a statement released by the Korean Central News Agency and attribute to Kim Jong-un; it was part of a longer list of commitments that included the dismantlement of the country's nuclear test site at Punggye-ri in a "transparent" way.

The inter-Korean talks and the expected Kim-Trump summit have raised hopes of an easing in tensions that reached a crescendo past year amid a flurry of North Korean missile tests and its largest nuclear test.

The Trump administration said on Sunday that Pyongyang would have to substantially dismantle its nuclear programs before USA concessions. USA and South Korean officials say Kim has said he is willing to discuss decentralization, but he said nothing on Saturday about giving up his existing nuclear weapons.

Shares of Good People and Shinwon Corp, which used to operate factories in North Korea's Kaesong industrial region near the Demilitarized Zone, surged 8 percent and 15 percent, respectively.

While it's unclear how many Chinese visitors go to North Korea every year, 237,000 Chinese visits were made to North Korea in 2012, the last year China reported such statistics.

In a Twitter message on Monday, Chinese state television's English-language channel said a tour bus had fallen off a bridge, killing more than 30 people, but later deleted the message.

"Negotiations about actual nuclear disarmament will likely prove arduous given such weapons are critical to Pyongyang's sense of security".

"It must be attributed to multiple factors, one of which is that Pyongyang has mastered certain advanced nuclear technologies and successfully launched an intercontinental ballistic missile with a range of more than 10,000 km".

But that still doesn't address a North Korean arsenal that now includes purported thermonuclear warheads and developmental ICBMs developed during a decadeslong cycle of crises, stalemates and broken promises.

At least 32 Chinese tourists have died after a bus crash in North Korea, officials in Beijing have said.
