Trump says North Korea talks positive, expects Kim letter

Mr Pompeo told a press conference that he was confident talks with North Korean officials were moving in the right direction towards a historic summit between the two countries. It said Kim wanted to meet Trump but didn't make any concessions or threats, as have marked his previous communications.

Pompeo tweeted after the dinner: "Good working dinner with Kim Yong Chol in NY tonight". "As we move to adjust to the political situation in the face of USA hegemonism, I am willing to exchange detailed and in-depth opinions with your leadership and hope to do so moving forward", Kim told Sergey Lavrov.

Mr Trump cancelled the 12 June summit last week, but both sides agreed to move forward.

"They're obviously our strategic partner, and they have just been incredibly generous in agreeing to host an upcoming meeting, so I just wanted to highlight that and thank the Government of Singapore for that".

"Between now and if we're going to have a summit", the State Department official said, "they (the North Koreans) are going to have to make clear what they're willing to do". "It will take bold leadership from Kim Jong Un, if we are to seize this once in a lifetime opportunity to change the course of the world", he said. A US delegation is meeting with North Korean officials in the demilitarized zone between the North and South to discuss the summit's content.

"I believe that there is no problem that we can not solve together if we deal with it based on trust, respect and understanding of the other side, which is the basic mindset that South and North Korea both agree to", Cho said.

President Donald Trump said Frriday his Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is back on for June 12.

But relations chilled when North Korea canceled an inter-Korean meeting and threatened to walk away from the summit with Trump because of the South's participation in regular military exercises with the United States and comments from US officials.

During the roughly hourlong morning session of the meeting, South Korea had reiterated the need to open a liaison office in the North Korean border city of Kaesong as the first step in implementing the Panmunjeom Declaration adopted in April.

North Korea, Terry said, has always meant the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, which would include a security guarantee for the region and the end of hostile policies by the United States, including its alliance with South Korea and the deployment of U.S. troops on the peninsula. The North Koreans complained about administration officials talking up the so-called "Libyan model", a scenario that ended with the death of that country's leader.

Similarly, Sung Kim, a former US top nuclear envoy and current ambassador to the Philippines, kicked off talks with North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui at the Tongilgak building on the northern side of Panmunjom, the truce village at the inter-Korean demilitarized zone, on Sunday.
