The denuclearization of North Korea could cost $ 20 billion

Analysts also noted that the process may take many years

Experts on arms control believe that curtailing North Korea’s nuclear programme may take up to ten years and $ 20 billion, if the President of the United States Donald trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN will be able to negotiate this at the meeting in Singapore on June 12.

“The most difficult work has not yet begun. It will require constant energy input from the United States, South Korea, Japan, China and South Korea. It will be a long, long process”, – said the Executive Director of the Association for arms control Daryl Kimball.

President trump said that he expects the summit “very positive results”, but rather, the entire meeting will be only the beginning of process of settlement of disagreements of the scope of denuclearization and approval specific details regarding the easing of sanctions, economic aid and security guarantees to be offered in return.

The Minister of defence of the USA James Mattis on Sunday said that sanctions against Pyongyang will be relaxed only after he will take “verifiable and irreversible steps toward denuclearization”.

The government of Kim Jong-UN is of the opinion that the measures and concessions on denuclearization must be accompanied by reciprocal steps.

Pyongyang also rejects the demands of some representatives of the US administration about the rapid and unilateral curtailing its nuclear programs before any concessions.
