  • Trump's Korean gambit could be a win regardless of the outcome

"We are looking forward to the smooth holding of the summit meeting between the two Koreas and the dialogue between North Korea and the U.S. and achieving concrete progress in promoting the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and the normalisation of relations between each other", Xi said.

Deputy White House spokesperson Raj Shah said: 'This potential meeting has been agreed to, there are no additional conditions being stipulated, but, again they - they cannot engage in missile testing, they cannot engage in nuclear testing and they can't publicly object to the U.S.

Under fire for agreeing to talks with North Korea, the White House responded by warning that no summit would occur unless Pyongyang took "concrete actions" over its nuclear program. "If so, the meeting will go on as planned".

Sanders said that the maximum pressure campaign on North Korea is working.

The South Korean officials who met Kim travelled to Washington last week to relay his message and visited China on Monday to brief President Xi Jinping, who urged patience. Mr Pompeo said U.S. military exercises in the region would continue in the lead-up to the talks.

"The offer was made and we've accepted".

The decision to meet drew support from countries seeking to defuse tensions between North Korea and the USA, along with warnings that Kim may be playing for more time to develop his weapons while seeking relief from US -led worldwide sanctions.

"Kim Jong Un is also a very young leader, so many in their twenties are highly critical of him and see him as a overprivileged leader", Lee said.

If the U.S. -North Korea summit meeting actually takes place, Kim would seek the incremental lifting of sanctions, friendly relations with the United States and an eventual end to joint U.S.

"If North Korea and the United States, who are the directly involved parties of the truce agreement, hold the summit at Panmunjom, it would hold the significant meaning of turning a symbol of division into one of peace", the Blue House official said.

He added: "Should we succeed, there will be dramatic changes in world history, and (South) Korea will have played the leading role".

They also say the North could even offer to reduce the amount of nuclear materials it has saved for making nuclear weapons. Whereas the South Korean team are idealistic exponents of soft power, the North Koreans include hard-line veterans who have been employing hybrid warfare for decades.

While Suh returns to Seoul, Chung is set to make a two-day trip to Moscow to consult Russian officials. Pyongyang might have taken such a step to maximize its bargaining power without crossing any red lines, which would result in a USA military assault.
