Donald Trump says deal with North Korea 'very much in the making'

Donald Trump's gift for Kim Jong Un

But by the following morning the news became FAKE.They said so what, who cares! Direct talks with the United States on equal footing is just what the Kim regime has desperately sought since the 1990s.

Instead, Kim only promised to stop nuclear and ballistic missile testing and said he accepted the right of the USA and South Korea to move forward with joint military exercises later this year.

But the comments were a sign that an end to a standoff between the two countries over North Korea's nuclear weapon program is not imminent.

But tension eased around last month's Winter Olympics in South Korea, laying the groundwork for what would be the first meeting between leaders from North Korea and the United States, and the biggest foreign policy gamble for Mr Trump since he took office in January past year. He's had a bad phone calls, but he doesn't have bad meetings.

North Korea's willingness to ignore the U.S-South Korean joint military exercises is a climbdown for Pyongyang, and encouraging for Washington. "We'll have to wait to see who's right".

At issue Friday was the nature of what the North Koreans had promised.

- Is Kim Jong Un reliable?

Trump has spoken with both Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe since Thursday's announcement, and said Xi "appreciates that the working to solve the problem diplomatically rather than going with the ominous alternative".

Trump expressed his hope that Kims invitation signals his desire to give the North Korean people a brighter future, it said.

South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted a government official as saying National Security Office chief Chung Eui-yong conveyed the message to Trump on Thursday.

Earlier today, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said he is encouraged by the planned meeting between Mr Trump and Mr Kim.

The president, she said, is committed to denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

The talks, which took place in locations including Mongolia, Norway and Malaysia, have given North Koreans an opportunity to present ideas and test the American response to them, according to participants. When billigerents are talking, they're not fighting.

They have, however, served a objective for the North Korean officials. Some expressed their reservations but ultimately supported the president's decision to accept it, according to US officials who were briefed on the talks and requested anonymity to discuss them.

The #north korean leader Kim Jong, is a very shrewd man and we do not know what the background to his change of heart could be. "The president and our negotiators must approach this development with due caution and openness, and any talks should be based on realistic expectations of what can be negotiated and verified", he said.

As for Trump, the talks could be a transformative moment - or a disaster.

True, it took Richard Nixon to go to China.

Sanders said the United States has made no concessions in accepting an invitation from Kim to meet Trump.

However, Richardson added, "We should make sure we don't fall into a trap set by the North Koreans, who are very good at negotiating deals and then withdrawing".

One half of the madman strategy is theatrical escalation to encourage submission. "Otherwise, it runs the risk of being more spectacle than substance". But if he succeeds, it'll vindicate those who voted for him because they wanted him to be a disrupter - a creative novelty.
