2 - He is also reported to have said that sanctions alone will not bring about North Korea's denuclearization, and that agreements will have to be made step-by-step.

The comment by David Malpass, under secretary of the US Treasury for worldwide affairs, came after Hong Nam-ki, the minister of economy and finance, asked the World Bank to play a leading role in providing assistance for development of North Korea in case there is meaningful progress on denuclearisation.

"Seoul will cooperate with the national government so that the 2023 summer Olympics become something more than a sports festival - an opportunity to change the fate of the Korean peninsula", said Seoul mayor Park Won-soon.

The U.S. Special Representative for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, said the two sides did not so much negotiate as state their positions in talks last week.

3a - There was talk after the first summit that a joint liaison office between North Korea and USA could be established in North Korea.

3b - There are also reports that the two sides are now discussing how to move ahead with reaching a declaration to officially end the Korean War. Do you expect to see movement on that?

Although he expressed optimism about the February 27-28 Hanoi summit in verbal testimony to the Senate Armed Services Committee, Admiral Philip Davidson, head of the Indo-Pacific Command, expressed doubts about North Korean intentions in his written submission to the panel. His comments seem to go against his commander-in-chief, but does he have a point?

5 - Renowned U.S. investment guru, Jim Rogers, it seems will be going to North Korea next month after receiving an invitation from Kim Jong-un. Reports first surfaced yesterday, but further sources indicate plans are in the works.

Adm. Davidson also warned that North Korea continues to engage in efforts "near or in Chinese territorial waters" to "circumvent" the US sanctions meant to pressure the regime into denuclearization.

A top USA commander said Tuesday that he has not seen any effort by North Korea to curtail its nuclear weapons program since President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un met for nuclear talks past year. What significance do you think it will hold? North Korea agreed to return to the United States some 50 boxes of remains believed to contain the bodies of missing American servicemembers from the Korean War. Another round of working-level talks is expected to take place in the next few days.
