Will Meet North Korea's Kim on June 12 in Singapore, Says Trump

What’s at stake?Source Bloomberg

A South Korean business executive in Singapore also said he and other overseas Korean businesspeople have huge expectations for the North Korea-US summit due to potential future business opportunities.

This agreement means the two archrivals have cleared major hurdles to the historic face-to-face meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

No family members or friends of the three freed Americans were on hand for their arrival in the early hours of Thursday due to protocol reasons, an official told CNN, adding the men had to first debrief intelligence officials before heading to their homes.

Trump's national security adviser John Bolton said in April that North Korea must give up all of its nuclear weapons, nuclear fuel, and ballistic missiles before sanctions relief or any other USA concessions. The constant jibes between the two leaders, indirectly via Twitter in the case of Donald Trump and North Korean state TV in the case of Kim led many into a state of despondency.

Pompeo's offers may be stretching the bounds of credibility, however, as he says the USA is prepared to "work with North Korea to achieve prosperity on the par with our South Korean friends".

Pompeo gave a toast at a luncheon in North Korea hosted by senior official Kim Yong Chol, calling the man a great partner in making the summit a success.

"This would be an important first step in the long process of securing lasting peace and stability on the Korean peninsula", the MFA statement on the telephone call said.

Asked why Mr Kim had agreed to the move, Mr Trump said: "I really think he wants to do something [to] bring that country into the real world".

"The next few weeks will be critical, requiring air-tight coordination between our two countries", Kang said. "North Korea summit", Kang said.

"The highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong Un and myself will take place in Singapore on June 12th".

The talks, now scheduled for June 12, will mark the first time a sitting US president has met with the leader of North Korea.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on March 6, 2018.

But, despite the optimism of that moment, all efforts to limit North Korea's nuclear program have so far failed. Currently, South Korea is doing much better economically than North Korea, and Pompeo pointed out that with help from the U.S., Kim could see his country flourish and do well like his southern neighbors.

Pompeo said there would need to be "complete" and "verifiable" denuclearization, suggesting it would involve inspections to ensure the North's compliance.

"We are very, very happy", said Kim.

The perception among North Koreans that their nation's nuclear strength has finally forced a sitting United States president to the negotiating table contrasts sharply with Trump's narrative.
