US, S.Korea express hopes on US-DPRK summit

Melania Trump and Donald on the White House lawn

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are planning for "a full day of meetings on the 12th, with some time reserved to carry over, if necessary", suggesting talks could extend into the following day.

On Thursday night, Mr Trump confirmed in a tweet that his highly-anticipated summit with Mr Kim would take place in Singapore on June 12.

The United States aspires to have North Korea as a "close partner" and not an enemy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday, noting that the us has often in history become good friends with former adversaries.

On the tarmac, Trump thanked Kim for the return of the USA citizens and said it was a sign that the talks with North Korea could be successful. Refresh for more information.

"We had good conversations, conversations that involve deep complex problems, challenges, strategic decisions that chairman Kim has before him". She says there can't be any daylight on this topic and on in particular the presence of US forces in her country.

The young man died six days after his return to the U.S.

Since Trump announced plans to hold a summit with Kim, questions have been raised continually about whether the two leaders have the same objective in mind when they speak about denuclearization.

Pompeo's surprise visit to North Korea appeared to be fruitful, as he returned with three Americans who had been held in North Korean labor camps.

Still, Pompeo made it clear that the two sides remained far apart on the key issue of what North Korea means by "denuclearization".

Pompeo said the United States would remain on board to help develop the North's economy, which has been devastated by its own mismanagement and crippling global sanctions.

Pompeo said he had a "good" conversation with North Koreans and did his best to convey the United States message to them.

In the expert's opinion, Trump's statement "won't produce a negative effect on the negotiating process with North Korea". So we'll have to see what they're ready to undertake here.

"I may not agree with everything he said about Korea, there is no doubt that it's been a success".

This will be the first time a sitting U.S. president is meeting a North Korean leader. "That was a big thing, very important to me, and I really think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful". This is part of broader peace talks being discussed in a recent South Korea summit, aiming to end the Korean War after 68 years.
