North Korea talks moving ‘more quickly than expected,’ White House says

Kim Jong Un’s Bevy Of Bodyguards Are Back — And Yes, They’re Still Running Trump Will Leave Summit With North Korea Early

Tensions between the two countries escalated in 2017 after Pyongyang stepped up efforts to boost its nuclear weapons programme.

"People call it a historic summit but.it is important to understand that this summit was available to any US president who wanted to do it and the point is no USA president wanted to do this, and for good reasons", said Christopher Hill, a former lead US nuclear negotiator with North Korea.

Even after the White House confirmed the summit, the run-up to it was not without roadblocks.

In a statement obtained by CNN, Rodman says he considers Trump to be a friend and expressed his confidence in his ability to get the job done in their summit.

"That is an extraordinary offer of flexibility, considering (North Korea) poses a direct security threat to the United States", according to Saeed.

"North Korea has previously confirmed to us its willingness to denuclearise and we are eager to see if those words prove honest", he said.

Larry Kudlow, Trump's economic adviser, said Sunday on CNN that Trudeau's criticism had damaged Trump's prestige before the summit - and that's why Trump reacted so strongly.

Kim and President Trump arrived in Singapore on Sunday ahead of Tuesday's historic summit.

However, he played down the possibility of a quick breakthrough and said the summit should set the framework for "the hard work that will follow", insisting that North Korea had to move toward complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation.

In an op-ed, the Washington Post emphasises how the USA president "has shown an ability to develop seemingly good relationships with some world leaders, and then to undermine them with unexpected words or actions".

People wait for the arrival of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un at The Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore, June 11, 2018.

In the weeks leading up to the summit in Singapore, Trump praised Kim as "very honorable" and "very open", a stark contrast from the "Little Rocket Man" moniker Trump had previously bestowed on the North Korean leader. China has always been the North's most important ally.

Trump, 71, landed at Paya Lebar Airbase on board Air Force One after cutting short his time at the G7 summit in Canada.

As anticipation for his historic summit with North Korea has ratcheted up, salesman in chief Donald Trump has done something out of character: ratcheted expectations down.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Trump suggested last week the two leaders may sign a peace agreement to formally end the Korean War 65 years after the armistice that ceased military hostilities.

The other countries at the G-7 summit, however, rallied to Mr. Trudeau's support.

President Trump is scheduled to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this week in Singapore to discuss whether the reclusive regime is prepared to scale back or eliminate its arsenal of nuclear weapons.

Kim Yo Jong gained notoriety at the Winter Olympics in South Korea.
