‘All systems go’ for Trump-Kim summit, Singapore diplomat says

Kim has the "opportunity" to make a deal with the U.S., Trump said Saturday, but he "won't have that opportunity again". For years Trump has complained about the USA bearing too much of the burden for other countries' security, and as president he's sought to pull troops from Syria and other locations. That's my touch, my feel, that's what I do.

Trump further noted that his upcoming meeting with Kim Jong-un in Singapore as a "mission of peace". "From what I can tell from (Trump's recent comments at the White House), they're not going to be asked to do much".

The North Korean leader may also reportedly meet with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Monday.

At the same time, Trump said there was a "good chance" the meeting would not work out and claimed he would know nearly immediately after the start of talks how the situation would progress.

"We talked about ending the war", Trump said at the White House after his meeting earlier this month with senior North Korean envoy Kim Yong Chol. "I think that Chairman Kim Jong Un is prepared to do that as well", he said. "I think I'll also know whether it will happen fast".

"We really think North Korea will be a tremendous place in a very short period of time and we appreciate everything that's going on".

Kim has taken only one known overseas trip by air since becoming leader in 2011 and the Ilyushin-76 cargo plane accompanied his personal Ilyushin-62M jet to Dalian in China in May. "People don't know much about him".

Speaking about the current G7 summit, Trump positively assessed the talks, saying that trade was at the top of the agenda. It's something Donald Trump found irresistible, if only for its drama. Entrepreneurs have been scrambling to cash in on the worldwide media spectacle, hawking Trump-Kim fusion burgers and summit-themed cocktails. Tensions flared between Trump and US allies over his protectionist economic policies and decisions to exit the Iran nuclear deal and Paris climate accord.

"The U.S. press is very dishonest", Trump said. Seeing Nobel Peace Prize laurels and eyeing potential to show up his critics at home and overseas, Trump is granting Kim the worldwide legitimacy he's long sought in hopes of securing a legacy-defining accord.

Battered by Trump, G7 leaders choose to be 'polite,' productive
But Trump is deadly serious about reforming a global trade system he believes is fundamentally broken, Kudlow said. Trump has also seemed less than enthusiastic about the meetings, questioning if he even needs to attend.

In his tweet, Trump seemed to suggest that Kim would have one chance to prove his seriousness about denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, implying that North Korea has a "one-time opportunity" to seek peace with the United States.

"We appreciate everything what is going on". "I wouldn't be surprised either if they come away with a big gesture of sorts to kick-start the process", she said.

Last year it carried out by far its most powerful nuclear test to date and launched missiles capable of reaching the U.S. mainland, sending tensions soaring to a level unseen in years as a newly-elected Trump traded threats of war and colorful personal insults with Kim, with Trump dubbed a "dotard" and Kim "Little Rocket Man".

Kim Jong-un's nuclear weapons may be top of the agenda for the USA, but Justice Kirby says human rights shouldn't be forgotten.

Trump on Saturday doubled down on his promise that the U.S.

The North invaded the South in 1950 and the ensuing war saw the US-led United Nations troops backing Seoul fight their way to a stalemate against Pyongyang's forces which were aided by Russian Federation and China, before the conflict ended in stalemate and an armistice which sealed the division of the peninsula.
