President Trump set to meet Kim Jong-un with no conditions


Chung will be traveling to Russian Federation from Beijing where he met with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday and talked about the outcome of his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Among the unverified reports so far is that Kim hopes to sign a peace treaty with Trump - a long-held goal of the North Korean regime.

The 2018-2022 forecast said that, in particular, South Korea's T-50A is well placed to secure the Advanced Pilot Training (APT) project that could be worth some 14 trillion won (US$13 billion).

South Korea's minister for trade, Kim Hyun-chong, who has visited the USA twice in recent weeks to seek ways to minimize the damage to South Korean steelmakers, will depart for the United States again on Tuesday, a ministry spokeswoman said.

It has essentially barred foreign media from visiting the country for more than a month and, while trumpeting the need for better inter-Korean relations, clung to the same anti-U.S., pro-nuclear weapons tone it struck at the height of its missile-testing frenzy a year ago.

"I feel they're approaching this matter with caution and they need time to organize their stance". "It's very early stages", Tillerson said.

Moon and Kim are expected to talk about a proposal for restarting communications between the North and South Korean militaries.

Suh is visiting Tokyo to brief officials there on his visit to North Korea and later the United States regarding denuclearsiation talks with Pyongyang. "I would say remain patient, and we'll see what happens", he said.

But Pence called Kim's offers to cease missile and nuclear testing while not objecting to U.S.

JOINT SECURITY AREA, PANMUNJOM One of the most likely sites being discussed is the Joint Security Area in Panmunjom that straddles the Military Demarcation Line between North and South Korea. However, in the middle of the briefing of some 20 officials, they received word that President Trump wanted an audience with them as soon as possible.

Trump said Saturday that he believes North Korea will abide by its pledge to suspend missile tests while he prepares for the summit.

The unlikely to deploy an aircraft carrier, which is considered a "strategic asset", during the drills, the Yonhap News Agency reported Monday.

He added: "Should we succeed, there will be dramatic changes in world history, and (South) Korea will have played the leading role".

Meanwhile, National Intelligence Service Director Suh Hoon, who had accompanied Chung to the North, will meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga on Tuesday before returning home.

Xi told Chung the peninsula was "facing an important opportunity of mitigation and dialogue", according to state broadcaster CCTV.

"At the same time, all sides must exercise patience and be attentive, and show political wisdom, to appropriately face and dispel any problems and interference to resuming the talks process", state media cited Xi as saying.

As a matter of fact, Chung Eui-yong and Suh Hoon, the special envoys to the US, were not initially scheduled to meet with President Trump on Thursday.

On Saturday, Trump said his talks with Kim could end with no agreement or they could be "the greatest deal for the world".

Those concerns came sharply into focus when North Korea literally shook China with an underground nuclear test that produced an quake felt over the border.
