Kim's 'special message' for Trump sets media abuzz

US President Trump has agreed to meet North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-un

The meeting would mark the first time a sitting American president has met with a North Korean leader, noted Laura M. Luehrmann, Wright State University political science professor and director of the program in worldwide and comparative politics. He struggled for years to adjust to his new capitalist home before finding the sport he says now means "everything in life".

In Beijing, Mr Xi told Mr Chung that the Korean peninsula faces an opportunity for talks to ease the situation. Sherman said that while she did not believe Kim is "in any rush to denuclearize", she was glad that the United States is entering into talks, even if it just starts with "a meeting".

"Our president, Moon Jae In, and the government believe that various advances toward achieving the goal of peace and denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula were made with active support and contribution from President Xi Jinping and the Chinese government", he said.

Mattis was among the advisers in the White House on Thursday when Trump made a decision to accept Kim's offer to meet.

"There were agreements between the US and North Korea to open up discussion on a peace treaty, but they never materialized", Koh said, saying the conditions were key.

Kim's offer to meet was relayed to Trump by a South Korean government delegation that briefed the president on their meeting with Kim last week in North Korea's capital. But in North Korea - as of yesterday, several days after the announcement - not a word about it had been reported by the state-run media.

Mr Suh is set to meet Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga today, the spokesman added.

"They're going to put on a big show they are a powerful country and all that, but the fact is they are a country that is starving and we need to realize that when we got to peace talks with them", he said.

'Our policy is pressure, is pressure from our partners and allies around the world, pressure to the United Nations, pressure through China, these have had an impact.

"China's faithful implementation helped make the Security Council's resolution effective", Cheng wrote, citing a 52 percent decline in trade with North Korea in January against the year before that required "significant sacrifice" on China's part.

It is hard to imagine a better way of sabotaging a deproliferation agreement with North Korea than betraying one with Iran.

The U.S. and the South Korea are also discussing how to conduct upcoming military drills in a way that won't provoke Kim, whose regime views the exercises as a rehearsal for war.

The two North Korean athletes, both of them skiers, competed in their first event Sunday, finishing last, and will join another event Wednesday.

"Let me urge the DPRK to consolidate this rapprochement with a parallel opening to human rights review", said Tomas Ojea Quintana, UN special rapporteur on human rights in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).
