Trump, Kim to hook up

A day after returning from a trip to Pyongyang, Pompeo said he had "good" and "substantive" conversations with Kim during his visit, during which he secured the release of three Americans who had been detained in North Korea.

Nauert said Pompeo conveyed a message to Kim Jong Un that he has the opportunity to bring "economic change" and an open society to his country.

Trump said on their arrival that he believed Kim wanted to bring North Korea "into the real world" and had high hopes for their planned meeting.

It is worth noting that Trump has become upbeat about the summit with Kim after hosting a ceremony to welcome the three Korean-Americans upon their arrival at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, early Thursday morning. "We will both try to make it a very special movement for the World Peace".

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. Both leaders pledged to work towards denuclearizing the Korean peninsula and reaching an eventual peace deal.

The U.S. would even help the North Korean economy if it takes "bold action to quickly denuclearize", the top U.S. diplomat added.

It will be the first ever summit between the leaders of the two countries.

"If it's a bust it's still a win for the North Koreans because you get the photograph of the North Korean leader meeting the American president one-to-one", Kelly said while speaking on a panel about North Korea attended by Business Insider at the Sydney Writers' Festival in Australia last week.

Some observers are concerned that South Korea's desire to build peaceful ties with the North may distance it over time from the United States policy of seeking nuclear disarmament at any cost.

He has had two recent meetings with Mr Kim to prepare for the summit and to negotiate the release of three Korean-Americans held in the North's jails. "The US is also favourable towards a location with prestige and glamour", the Straits Times quoted Dr Lim Tai Wei, adjunct research fellow at East Asian Institute, National University of Singapore, as saying.

But, despite the optimism of that moment, all efforts to limit North Korea's nuclear program have so far failed.

To the U.S., that means the North giving up the nuclear weapons it has already built.

He said his talks with Kim Jong Un had been "constructive", "warm" and "good".

Washington and Pyongyang have agreed to hold their first summit in Singapore on June 12.

The US wants Pyongyang to give up its weapons programme completely and irreversibly.

Mike Pence said, "What Kim Jong Un has said publicly and in discussions is that he is prepared, he is prepared to negotiate to achieve complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula".
