To that end, Pompeo saluted reports that North Korea will decommission its primary nuclear test site later this month as "good news".

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told reporters Monday in Vienna that "the irreversible closure of the site will be an important confidence-building measure that will configure to further efforts towards sustainable peace and verifiable de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

The Yomiuri ShimbunThe government has requested that U.S. President Donald Trump visit Japan immediately after his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12 and hold talks with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, according to sources familiar with Japan-U.S. relations.

"It means that Kim can pick and choose which form of a deal he wants and Trump will market it as a win", Jackson said.

Guterres says he is looking forward to "this positive momentum being consolidated at the summit between the leaders of the United States and North Korea".

Later in the day, they were said to have visited the Zhongguancun High-tech Zone, known as China's Silicon Valley, and a region that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un visited in March.

While questions remain over whether United States firms would want to pour money into North Korea given the many uncertainties, South Korean companies are far more eager to begin investment should sanctions be relaxed.

Both subsequent regimes believed they would eventually take over all of Korea, and border skirmishes were common in the ensuing years until June 25, 1950, when North Korean forces poured over the parallel and almost toppled the South Korean government. "The result may be Kim Jong Un is in a position fearing loss of power because of rampant poverty".

Report shows STDs in California at all-time high
Rates of sexually transmitted diseases in California reached a record high a year ago and, state health authorities said Monday. Another concerning number from the state health agency is that 30 stillbirths occurred in California due to syphilis .

All three men are ethnic Koreans who became naturalized USA citizens. Trump could push his party's fortunes in the upcoming midterm elections via this "politics of success" by running on a record of diplomatic wins with North Korea as well as a growing economy and the recently passed tax cuts for millions of American families.

John Bolton, Trump's national security advisor, also said in an interview with CNN's "State of the Union" that the DPRK should not "look for economic aid from us".

Fox News host Chris Wallace asked if the USA would commit to taking regime change "off the table", effectively promising Kim Jong-un, "If you give us what we want, you can stay in power".

Pay attention to the news, White House press briefings, and Trump's Twitter feed, which are likely to prove the best barometer of what we can expect. That seems like it can be addressed by restrictions on missile capacity and/or some treaty which eliminates by some definition how much we consider North Korea a "threat". "What they should be doing is playing down expectations by saying "we need to be cautious with the North Koreans" and really hold their feet to the fire and make sure that any agreement is fully verified".

The two other Chinese traders confirmed that price range.

Singapore appears to be a safe pick for the summit.

After it was revealed that Iran had lied about the extent of its nuclear weapons program, Trump had little choice but to terminate the agreement.
