This is why the world looks forward to the meeting between US President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un this coming May.

South Korean factory owners have been hoping the thaw in inter-Korean relations would allow them to visit the complex to see what remains of the equipment and stocks they left behind when North Korea seized the factories, but an invitation from Pyongyang has not been forthcoming. "We've not heard anything directly back from North Korea, although we expect to hear something directly from them".

"I feel they're approaching this matter with caution and they need time to organise their stance".

Among them are Christian missionaries Kim Jung-wook, who was arrested in October 2013, and Kim Kook-kie and Choi Chun-kil, who have been held since 2014, the ministry said. He added that discussions around the meeting are still "in the very early stages" and "several steps will be necessary to agree on a location", according to Politico. For so long, the U.S. has sent aircraft carriers and jet fighters in the seas close to the Korean peninsula and stationed some 20,000 American troops in South Korea. Chung is visiting China to discuss his recent visit to North Korea, at which the two Koreas agreed to hold a summit next month.

"Talk is certainly better than war", she said.

The carrier deployments also may have spooked North Korea, as it released a propaganda video if its missiles destroying a carrier and other key U.S. weapons systems.

Academic Koh Yu-hwan, who teaches North Korean studies at Dongguk University in Seoul, said the north has wanted a peace treaty to end the more than 60-year-old ceasefire between the Asian country and the United States. The U.S. nuclear umbrella would also be maintained to protect Japan and South Korea from North Korean attacks.

Another spot in South Korea that has been raised as an option is scenic Jeju Island, off the southern coast, easily accessed by either boat or airplane from the Korean peninsula.

Tillerson spoke Monday at a news conference in Nigeria.

"We know the maximum pressure campaign is working", Sanders said.

As recently as August, Trump tweeted about North Korea: "Talking is not the answer!"

"North Korea has big negotiations to make at the inter-Korean summit and later its summit with the United States and in light of the situation I don't think (North Korea) will use this opportunity to simply buy time", Abe was cited as saying by the Blue House in a statement.

He said Japan would work closely with the United States and South Korea including on solving the issue of Japanese citizens abducted in the past by North Korea.
