North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump are set to meet for talks

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump are set to meet for talks

"He's inviting him to be treated as an equal to the United States of America - a goal sought by every Kim since North Korea began its nuclear program", said Vipin Narang, an associate professor of political science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who specializes in nuclear non-proliferation and Asian security.

South Korean President Moon Jae-In announced Thursday at the White House that Kim would suspend North Korea's nuclear testing in exchange for the meeting, and Trump agreed.

"It has become glaringly apparent in recent months that you have been seriously contemplating the use of military options against North Korea, and trying to sell the American people on this issue", the letter said.

The ambassador also pointed out that although China will not be a part of this summit, eventually Beijing will be a big factor down the line, because 80 percent of commerce to North Korea goes through China.

"If I was on your side of the cabin, I would be doing the same thing", Mattis told a reporter on his plane asking the question.

The president was locked in growing tensions with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un last year, prompting fears of a nuclear strike. Trump had tweeted.The US President and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have a history of exchanging threats of nuclear attack.

President Trump had previously threatened North Korea with "fire and fury like the world has never seen". "It will all work out!"

The US will not be making any concessions to North Korea during forthcoming nuclear talks, according to the CIA's director.

Prime Minister Hun Sen has expressed support for a planned meeting between the United States and North Korea set for May. Nor, for that matter, has a ship in international waters.

"Chinese President XI JINPING and I spoke at length about the meeting with KIM JONG UN of North Korea. They said so what, who cares!"

Madeleine Albright is the highest-level U.S. official to visit North Korea while in office.

I hate to say it, but if a Democrat victory in Trump Country next Tuesday would do the trick, I'm all for it. In an interview en route to the Middle East, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis declined to discuss the timing and scale of the exercises.

"We can't do what we did with Iran and let off the pressure and then just watch the behavior go in the wrong direction", the Wisconsin Republican, who serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said on CNN's "State of the Union".

North and South Korea marched separately at the Opening Ceremony of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Paralympics, which took place here on Friday (March 9).

Todd, whom Trump derided throughout the campaign as "sleepy eyes Chuck Todd", responded to Mnuchin with a deadpan tone.

"The president of the United States is going to take the lead", he said on CBS's "Face the Nation". But one-on-one negotiations are something North Korea has offered before.

With the Olympics over, it was time for Moon to make his move.

The White House says the seemingly sudden decision to hold the summit reflects Trump's bold, shoot-from-the-hip style. But if the meeting fails, it could leave Trump and his senior advisers feeling as though there is no alternative with North Korea but war.

Since the collapse of the six-party talks, China and Russia have called for the resumption of the multilateral dialogue platform.

"Who else could do it, I mean honestly when you think", Trump said at a rally in Pennsylvania, where he endorsed Republican Rick Saccone ahead of Tuesday's congressional special election.
