It is where an armistice treaty was signed by the USA -led United Nations Command on behalf of South Korea and the North Korean and Chinese militaries on July 27 in 1953, halting the war that left much of the peninsula in ruins.

Trump later said the issue is "not on the table" in his upcoming talks with the North Korean leader.

Kim and Mr Trump are expected to meet later this month or in early June.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is traveling to Washington on Sunday for a two-day visit, when he will meet Vice President Mike Pence and national security adviser John Bolton, for talks on Iran, North Korea, Syria and other issues, Britain said.

North Korea has warned the United States not to misread its overtures of peace as a sign of weakness, as U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un prepare to hold their first-ever summit. And that a nuclear-free zone is established on the Korean peninsula.

North Korea has criticised the United States for what it calls "misleading" claims that Washington's policy of maximum political pressure and sanctions are what drove Pyongyang to the negotiating table. It is clear such cannot be achieved without the approval of both the United States and China as both superpowers have regarded their respective allies in the Korean peninsula as their surrogates in the global competition between the two.

Kanye West calls 400 years of slavery a choice
West has come under scrutiny recently for posts on Twitter that appeared to support President Trump and conservatives. After realising what he'd just said, he quickly added: 'It's like we're mentally in prison.

"As I said yesterday, stay tuned", Trump added.

The bilateral relations between the two Korean countries are gearing up after the inter-Korean summit was conducted successfully in April after a gap of three decades.

Joseph Yun, who as the State Department's former point man on North Korea brought Warmbier home to OH, said on CNN Thursday that administration officials talking about the three Americans publicly could jeopardize efforts to free them.

Experts say the USA president is most likely holding back from announcing the summit date and venue to maximise media anticipation.

"When we talk about North Korea, in general, we tend to forget we're talking about people and these abductees have families who have been anxiously awaiting their return and are only relying on governments to do that", said Pak, the former intelligence official.

A meeting with Kim seemed an outlandish possibility just a few months ago when the two leaders were trading threats and insults over North Korea's development of nuclear weapons. An armstice brought about a ceasefire to the Korean War in 1953, but the conflict never officially ended because the parties could not agree on a formal peace treaty. A spokesman for President Moon told reporters Wednesday in Seoul that Moon considered U.S. troops "a matter of the South Korea-U.S. alliance" that "has nothing to do with signing a peace treaty" with Pyongyang.
