White House: 'Full Day' of Trump-Kim Meetings to Be Scheduled

Welcome prisoners

The establishment media has done its best to ignore or step on the story of the magnificent work President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did to gain the release of three American Christians grabbed-up as hostages by North Korea.

"Singapore has a relationship with both the United States and North Korea", Mr Shah told journalists on Thursday aboard Air Force One, which was taking Mr Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence to IN for a public rally.

A summit of the leaders of South and North Korea took place in South Korea on April 27, which political scientists described as a precursor to the Kim Jong-un-Trump meeting. "Singaporeans have been gracious up until now and also in the past".

But the emotional Moon-Kim meeting in Panmunjom, the "peace village" on the border of the two Koreas, poses an enormous challenge for Trump, who wants a big, showy display of his own deal-making magic, so that he can tell the world, "Now you see the crisis; now you don't".

As of now, the summit would be a one-day affair, he said.

Shuang has said that China welcomes the positive progress made by the leaders of the DPRK and the United States to prepare for the summit. We have a month and several days. As well, it and other members of the 1950-53 UN Command (including Canada) are still technically at war with North Korea.

Singapore is an ideal site for the summit because Singapore historically has been an honest broker between East and West. Singapore has been a great friend to the United States but also Singapore has carefully worked to be a friend to all, which has earned it trust in capitals around the world.

Tensions on and around the peninsula had been mounting for years as Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes saw it subjected to multiple rounds of increasingly strict sanctions by the UN Security Council, the US, EU, South Korea and others.

DR SHIN BEOM CHUL, a senior fellow at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies in Seoul. It was his second meeting Gorbachev, and hopes were sky high for a historic agreement that would end the scariest part of the Cold War.

By contrast, North Korea's GDP is less than $20bn, placing it well outside the top 100 economies.

"I don't want to offer hypotheticals. So I hope this time is different", said Gardner.

Contrasting the wealth of South Korea to the poverty and deprivation of the North, Pompeo said the Trump administration was willing to provide assistance to North Korea if Kim met United States demands to forfeit its nuclear weapons.

"I am not going to get ahead of the negotiations, but that is our... stated goal".

Kim was accompanied to China by his sister, Kim Yo Jong, who has played a leading role in diplomatic overtures by the long-isolated country. U.S. officials said the release of Americans Kim Hak-song, Tony Kim and Kim Dong-chul removed a major obstacle to the summit, providing Trump with some tangible evidence that his twin-track policy of engagement and "maximum pressure" was working.

Although the release of the prisoners is a sign of goodwill on part of Kim's government, Vice President Pence and other Trump Administration officials have reaffirmed that the USA will maintain diplomatic pressure on the nation in pursuit of dismantling its nuclear capabilities and ballistic missile programs. We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace! In a Twitter reply to Mr Trump, he added: "May it lead to a successful outcome".

Analysts were sanguine about the choice of Singapore.

According to a statement of the White House, Trump, in a telephone call, thanked Lee for his willingness to host his June 12 meeting with Kim, Xinhua reported.

A Japanese newspaper yesterday raised the possibility of Chinese President Xi Jinping also travelling to Singapore on June 12. Warned by Obama days after his election that the threat posed by Pyongyang could define his presidency, Trump answered Kim's threats with bellicose warnings of his own and rallied an global pressure campaign against North Korea.
