WH: Trump-Kim Meeting a Go If NKorea Sticks to Promises Made

  • S. Korean President Moon says

North Koreans are taught to believe that the reclusive state's founding leader, Kim Il Sung, fought against Japanese forces at Mount Baekdu, the highest mountain on the Korean Peninsula.

South Korea National Security Office chief Chung Eui Yong, meanwhile, met Chinese President Xi Jinping yesterday.

The Chosun Sinbo, a pro-North Korean newspaper in Japan, reported the planned inter-Korean summit on March 10 but had deleted the report a day later.

Members of the US Congress said they worry that Trump acted impulsively in agreeing to meet with Kim, before negotiators for both countries had a chance to set some goals the leaders could agree to. "If this is carried out, Western countries trading with the United States and many steelmakers and aluminum producers will suffer significant damage".

"If we can somehow help, we'll do it", he said during a press conference after a meeting with Prime Minister of Luxembourg.

Trump verbally accepted an invitation to meet with Kim last week, stating that he expected "tremendous success" in solving the problem of a nuclear-capable North Korean state.

Separately, Trump has, on occasion, criticized the Iran agreement for failing to address that nation's internal human-rights abuses - which, however real and contemptible, pale in comparison to those of North Korea's totalitarian regime. But Trump said: 'No, it's very positive ... no, after the meeting you may do that, but now we have to be very nice because let's see what happens, let's see what happens'.

There has been a stormy exchange of words between the two leaders, and at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, President Trump indicated that North Korea is interested in pursuing peace.

Hillary: America Doesn't Deserve Trump as President
She also cited racism against Indians in her explanation to an Indian audience. "What does that mean?" she said. Clinton said Trump remarked positively after Chinese President Xi Jinping's government abolished term limits.

He said Japan, South Korea and the USA should discuss details of their strategy ahead of the planned talks between the US and North Korea "in order to make the dialogue a meaningful one".

The two Koreas have been bitterly divided since the end of the Korean War in 1953, and tensions have escalated since the North began to aggressively pursue the development of nuclear weapons.

"Nothing's been agreed and I don't want to start floating ideas out through the media", Tillerson said in Abuja alongside Foreign Minister Geoffrey Onyeama.

Asked what Trump could accomplish by being nice to Kim, Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin told CNN on Sunday, "Not a whole lot".

Yet such talk is likely more of the same deceit and stalling tactics from a rogue regime that is improving its nuclear stockpile, says Bob Maginnis of the Family Research Council. He said, "In order to make the whole process successful, for which Donald Trump will be responsible, he would have to provide economic concessions".

The "greatest risk", she said, is "that the President and his team give this an effort, but because they don't get every single thing that they want that they say it's hopeless, and really create the prerequisite for war".

North Korea's state media have lauded the thaw in relations with South Korea.
