Japan occupied the Korean peninsula from 1910 to 1945, when it was defeated in World War Two.

Speaking of the summit, Trump said Tuesday, "We have been told directly that they would like to have the meeting as soon as possible. They well understand that neighbouring countries, mainly the US Japan, South Korea and China, can give them economic aid", Jeong said, noting that North Korea wanted foreign investment from capitalist countries.

The Ministry of defense of South Korea announced the termination of broadcasting against the DPRK from loudspeakers in the demilitarized zone. It was a break from what is known as the anti-DPRK psychological warfare, which Seoul resumed in 2016 following Pyongyang's fourth nuclear test.


"The whole world will be watching the summit. I ask that our political circles, too, will halt their political warfare at least during the summit", Moon said Monday in remarks carried by the Yonhap news agency.

Previously Seoul called the condition of signing a peace Treaty with Pyongyang.

According to sources knowledgeable about relations between the two Koreas, Seoul is putting together a plan that would greatly reduce the firepower deployed in the DMZ. A friendly mood between the two countries is expected in the building's meeting room.

"It seems that it took some time for the North to completely stop propaganda broadcasts because we turned off speakers without prior notice", a government source here speculated. China and Russian Federation have repeatedly called for its resumption.
