White House expects N Korea summit to happen

The World On arirang Positive investor sentiment lifts Seoul stocks

"I am delighted that South Korea's efforts have made great progress in the overall Korean Peninsula situation and that close dialogue between NK and the USA has been achieved".

He said South Korean President Moon Jae-in believes that Seoul and Tokyo must cooperate to build on the momentum for peace that began with the PyeongChang Olympics.

US President Donald Trump says his planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could fizzle - or it could result in "the greatest deal for the world" to ease nuclear tensions in the region.

South Korea, the third-largest steel exporter to the USA and a strategic ally on the Korean Peninsula, has already put in a request for a waiver.

The White House will convene a meeting Tuesday to discuss preparations, an administration official said. "I think it's going to be very important that those conversations are held quietly" between Washington and Pyongyang", Tillerson said.

Both countries have global reputations as mediators, and both played a role as members of the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission helping to regulate relations between the two Koreas after the 1953 armistice that paused - but did not officially end - the Korean War.

"There's a history of North Korea and other countries, like Iran, talking about getting rid of their nuclear program", Davis said. Trump has vowed to prevent that, by force if necessary.

Raj Shah, a White House spokesman, said yesterday that "no additional conditions [were] being stipulated" for a proposed summit on denuclearisation.

He stressed that North Korea must stick to the commitments that were relayed by South Korean officials who met with Kim last week and then came to Washington and briefed Trump.

Broncos plan is obvious: Cousins or Keenum, Keenum or Cousins
The Jets will make a competitive bid for Cousins and expect to get a visit from him but they don't want a repeat of 2015. He had been franchise-tagged by the Redskins each of the last two seasons, but finally gets his big payday this year.


"Go Go Sisters" is the Vietnamese version of "Sunny", which attracted 7.45 million viewers in South Korea during its theatrical run in 2011.

The U.S. and South Korea hold military manoeuvrs every year.

The Japanese prime minister also promised cooperation "in all ways possible" for the success of the envisioned inter-Korean and U.S.

On Monday, Sanders said the administration fully expects the meeting to take place.

Some experts are concerned that North Korea could be seeking to delay global action while strengthening its nuclear program.

Dealing with the North Korea issue is one reason he decided Monday to cut short the trip by a day and return home. The North Korean leader reportedly expressed a commitment to denuclearization and Trump noted that Kim also "has promised" not to conduct missile tests "through our meetings".

"I'm very anxious about that happening again and I would hope that this administration understands that", he said.

Kevin Hardwick, a political science professor at Canisius College, says the rally was perfectly timed after an especially turbulent week for Trump.
