Trump prepares for his own meeting with Kim Jong

  • Trump prepares for his own meeting with Kim Jong

Kim told Moon that he would soon invite experts and journalists from the United States and South Korea to "transparently open to the worldwide community" the dismantling of the facilities, the Blue House said.

MARTIN: So, first of all, we hear that there were some street protests against the summit. I hope he will decide to honestly engage to achieve a lasting peace that will bring prosperity to his own people - and perhaps extend his time in office. And I recorded some sound of them, and let's hear that for a second.

KUHN: Yeah, so you hear this patriotic music and these very strident words. Actually, I have to tell you, these groups are actually a pretty common sight in Seoul, especially on the weekends. China is a traditional ally, even if relations are often bumpy, and in South Korea he is at least with fellow Koreans who share a language and culture.

Now, before Moon Jae-in were two conservative presidents. It declared North Korea a "world-level politico-ideological and military power" and said it would contribute to building "a world without nuclear weapons".

On Friday, leaders from North and South Korea vowed to end the Korean War and end nuclear weapons.

Suh, who personally helped arrange two previous inter-Korean summits in 2000 and 2007, is viewed as the country's top expert on North Korea.

"Remember what they were saying?"

The meeting, the first of its kind for a sitting United States president, will focus on the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, Trump said. And that really commits him.

MARTIN: Oh, interesting. Well, what about the South Korean media?

"This is a first step, it is encouraging, but we have to realise there is still a lot of hard work that lies ahead of us", North Atlantic Treaty Organisation chief Jens Stoltenberg cautiously said at a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation foreign ministers in Brussels.




On the other hand, by holding his talks with Mr. Kim a month before Mr. Trump is expected to meet with the North Korean dictator, Mr. Moon has attached his name to the most successful part of the North-South dialogue - the initial declaration of peace and denuclearization talks.

He also tweeted that "things are going very well, time and location" of meeting with Kim are being set. So basically, this was sort of a prelude to that.

Trump says that besides talking with South Korea's Moon Jae-in, he's updated Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe about 'the ongoing negotiations'. What's been the reaction there?

South Korean officials said Kim would shut the Punggye-ri nuclear site - a key agreement that was arranged by the two countries leaders earlier this week. "With that kind of assurance, they wanted to have a talk with the United States".

"It is still unclear whether North Korea still believes that it can have its cake and eat it too", said Victor Cha, who until January had been in the running to become Trump's choice for ambassador to South Korea.

Moon and Trump agreed on the necessity for an early summit between Trump and Kim, and explored two to 3 potential places, the Blue Home stated.

The remarks are likely to be seen as a sweetener ahead of Mr Trump's own planned summit with Mr Kim, which the United States leader said would take place "in the next three or four weeks". You know, often, when there's kind of a big, global event like this, it kind of takes over the imagination of the people. "I just want to get the job done", which elicited another round of cheering.

Kim now has two major summits under his belt - he met with Chinese President Xi Jinping last month in Beijing - and he sailed through both without pinning himself down with any substantive promises about what he plans to do with his nuclear weapons. But it's a red flag that Kim is agreeing to the same phrase that in past discussions has meant something very different than verifiable disarmament.

The Prize: South Korean President Kim Dae-jung receives a Nobel Peace Prize.
