Trump talks with N.Korea not 'for theatre'

U.S. President Ronald Reagan left and Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev leave Hofdi House after finishing their two days in Reykjavik on Oct. 12 1986. A planned return engagement in the U.S. never materialized

North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un wants to sign a peace treaty and establish diplomatic relations with the U.S., including allowing an embassy in Pyongyang, according to the Seoul-based Dong-A Ilbo newspaper, which cited an unidentified senior official with South Korea's presidential office.

Pompeo suggested that Trump understood the dangers.

The North's leaders have sought a face-to-face meeting with a United States president for decades.

Trump accepted the invitation Thursday after it was relayed to him in an impromptu White House meeting with the South Korean national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong.

Trump has called Kim a "little rocket man", while North Korea's leader branded the President a "mentally deranged U.S. dotard". So, he's not going over there for the glamour or for the publicity or simply to be the world leader who went to North Korea and sat down with Kim Jong-un (which, admittedly, is quite an impressive achievement) - instead, he's going there to defuse the nuclear situation and find a way to create peace between the two nations.

China and Japan, the two regional powers, welcomed a summit between Mr Trump and Mr Kim.

With their meeting expected to take place before May, the President also reassured: "North Korea has not conducted a missile test since November 28, 2017, and has promised not to do so through our meetings".

Trump himself has said that his meeting with Kim could result in the "greatest deal for the world," which are his own words.

"I do not want to talk about Korea at all".

"The potential for misunderstanding remains very high or goes higher".

He tweeted that Chinese President Xi Jinping "appreciates that the U.S.is working to solve the problem diplomatically rather than going with the ominous alternative".

The White House has been under fire for agreeing to talks and responded to the criticism on Friday by warning that no summit would occur unless Pyongyang took "concrete actions" over its nuclear program. "China continues to be helpful!"

Not everyone was so sanguine about the prospects of a breakthrough, however, and some Democrats shuddered at the thought of such sensitive - and potentially explosive - negotiations being in Trump's hands.

"I think North Korea is going to go very well", he said. However, Pompeo says that the United States government's eyes are "wide open" with regards to the dangers and risks of the North Korea meeting.

"I am very anxious that he is going to go into these negotiations and [may] be taken advantage of", Warren said on CNN's "State of the Union". "It would be hard for any Democratic nominee to say they have better foreign policy ideas".

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said the Trump administration needs to be wary of North Korea's history of broken promises in nuclear disarmament talks and should "ratchet up the sanctions against North Korea until they actually do, in a verifiable fashion, denuclearize". We are a nuclear power. "And at the same time he has agreed to have a conversation about denuclearization".
