Trump says summit with North Korea's Kim will be in Hanoi

Japan seeks close cooperation with U.S. ahead of 2nd Trump-Kim summit

"North Korea will become a different kind of Rocket - an Economic one!"

Seoul and Washington have made plans to stage the two-week Key Resolve command post exercise and the Foal Eagle field training between March and April.

In his State of the Union address, U.S. President Donald Trump disclosed that the second U.S.

The U.S. special representative to North Korea Stephen Biegun met with Kim Hyok Chol, Pyongyang's former envoy to Spain, earlier this week in Pyongyang to discuss arrangements for the summit. Actually, denuclearization talks have stagnated.

At the same time, he set out an extensive list of demands that North Korea would have to meet eventually, including full disclosure of its nuclear and missile programs, something Pyongyang has rejected for decades. It has since suspended ballistic missile tests. Verification and surveillance by experts will be indispensable, too. Mr. Palladino reiterated that sanctions relief that NKorea has been seeking would follow its denuclearization. "Reuniting these families presents an opportunity to build cooperation and help heal the open wound of the unfinished Korean War, which never officially ended". Kim has gone no further than saying that the regime "will not produce, test, use or proliferate nuclear weapons".

While in the US view, North Korea has yet to take concrete steps to give up its nuclear weapons, Pyongyang complains that Washington has done little to reciprocate for its freezing of nuclear and missile testing and dismantling of some facilities. It is hard to understand why Trump takes an optimistic view of the North without going along with this assessment. More talks are therefore expected before the summit.

The Singapore summit yielded a vague commitment by Kim to work toward the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, where USA troops have been stationed since the Korean War.

The US envoy was also likely to have discussed with his counterpart protocol and security matters for the upcoming Trump-Kim summit.

We begin with the ongoing preparations for the 2nd North Korea-U.S. summit. Offshore smuggling, in which cargoes are transferred from ship to ship, is said to have been conducted repeatedly.

A year of mostly fruitless diplomacy has led to serious doubts about Mr. Kim's sincerity and Trump's ability to force North Korea to significantly reduce the threat its nuclear weapons pose to the region and world.

The global sanctions against North Korea are created to severely limit its import and export abilities, with the aim of putting pressure on the country to give up its nuclear ambitions.
