North and South Korean leaders embrace at surprise summit

North and South Korean leaders embrace at surprise summit

"The White House pre-advance team for Singapore will leave as scheduled in order to prepare should the summit take place", Sanders noted.

South Korea says it feels relieved about the revived talks for a summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over the future of Kim's nuclear weapons program.

At their April summit, Kim expressed his willingness to scrap his country's nuclear program - which would include its nuclear weapons - and pursue meetings with the United States and China.

"The two leaders frankly exchanged their opinions on implementing the April 27 Panmunjom Declaration [which the two struck in April at their first historic summit] and for the successful staging of a U.S. -NK summit", Blue House spokesman Yoon Young-chan said.

The Blue House on Saturday issued a brief statement at around 7:50 p.m. saying a second Moon-Kim meeting took place in the DMZ from 3 p.m.to 5 p.m.in a North Korean-controlled building, Tongilgak, on the northern side of Panmunjom.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in bids fairwell to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as he leaves after their summit at the truce village of Panmunjom, North Korea, May 26, 2018. "I am convinced that this is the way that South and North Korea must meet". "The world, and North Korea in particular, has lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth".

Focus on Mohamed Salah on Egypt's return after 28 years
Meanwhile, his feat with the Merseyside in his debut season at the club has made him a household name for a lot of Liverpool fans. But Robson reckons Salah's style of play will suit Real Madrid and their attacking left-back Marcelo.

The announcement came as Trump took to social media to lambast a New York Times article which claimed that it was now too late for the summit to take place as originally scheduled.

All three leaders have considerable political capital on the line, with Trump having lauded his deal-making prowess, Kim being pounded by sanctions, and Moon making calmer relations with the North a hallmark aim of his presidency.

Earlier on Friday, speaking to reporters outside the White House in Washington, the United States president indicated that the summit could still be salvaged, saying: "We're gonna see what happens". "We would like to do it", Trump said, and "they very much like to do it".

"No, we'll see what happens, it could even be the twelfth". Photos showed that Kim's sister, Yo-jong, widely believed to be a key player in her brother's inner circle, was also present.

Analysts believe the last-minute meeting signals Kim's urgent desire to meet with Trump in an effort to secure economic relief and other assurances from the US, according to The Associated Press.

However, both President Trump and Kim Jong Un, said they were open to continue the talks, which largely center around the permanent denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
