Trump Reveals Where He Will Meet North Korea's Kim Jong Un

The Japanese government is making arrangements for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to meet US President Donald Trump ahead of a landmark US-North Korea summit in Singapore on June 12, government sources said Friday.

Washington's focus is on disarming Kim's regime, which has recently tested what appear to be missiles capable of carrying his nuclear threat to USA cities.

In December Kim declared his nuclear force as complete following the country's most powerful nuclear test to date in September and also three flight tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles created to reach the USA mainland.

"We are very clear that sanctions remain in place until and unless we see visible, meaningful action taken by North Korea on the denuclearisation track", Ms Kang said.

Trump and Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong spoke by phone a day after the United States president announced the date and location for his historic summit with Kim.

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen Pence were also on hand to welcome the three men home. "We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!"

The secretary of state addressed concerns that the USA and North Korea have different objectives in mind when considering denuclearization, prompting doubts that the Kim regime will actually be willing to give up the weapons it has already built. "I think you probably broke the all-time in history television rating for 3 o'clock in the morning", he said.

Speaking to the media on the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews Air Force Base, Kim Dong Chul said his release felt "like a dream".

"North Korea agrees in a certain time table to give up nukes and inspectors go in", told the person who requested anonymity to Alex Ward of Vox. "We know who we are dealing with here", said Victoria Coates, of the National Security Council.

"If North Korea takes bold action to quickly denuclearize, the United States is prepared to work with North Korea to achieve prosperity on the par with our South Korean friends". He'd said he favored holding the meeting at the Demilitarized Zone, the heavily fortified border separating the Koreas.

The Trump-Kim summit is an achievement in and of itself.

Former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter visited after leaving office. North Korea is expected to demand some form of relief nearly immediately.

And, more than two decades and multiple provocative weapons tests after the last accord, the threat from Pyongyang has only grown.

Journalists asked Pompeo what such a denuclearization would look like and if it meant carrying out inspections in North Korean nuclear plants. North Korea said he was colluding with the South Korean spy agency, which denied being involved with Kim.
