Trump slams 'FAKE' media coverage of N-Korea meeting

US President Donald Trump believes he has the reputation for deal-making and the instincts needed to bring North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his nuclear arsenal into line.

"In the first hours after hearing that North Korea's leader wanted to meet with me to talk denuclearization and that missile launches will end, the press was startled & amazed", he said.

It is a turnaround from last year, when tensions soared as the North fired missiles that could reach the US mainland and tested what it said was an H-bomb.

The ambassador also pointed out that although China will not be a part of this summit, eventually Beijing will be a big factor down the line, because 80 percent of commerce to North Korea goes through China.

Chinese President Xi Jinping "told me he appreciates that the U.S.is working to solve the problem diplomatically rather than going with the ominous alternative", Trump wrote on Twitter.

South Korean President Moon Jae-In, who led the pursuit of détente with North Korea during his country's hosting of the Winter Olympics, said the summit would set a course for denuclearisation, according to a presidential spokesman.

It's too early to even guess whether U.S. -Korean talks will resolve anything.

"If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honored to do it", Trump said of Kim in May.

Le Pen will attempt to revive her battered party this weekend at a conference with a proposal to ditch the tainted National Front brand, seen as a key hurdle to winning power. He has not demanded a dowry of food or fuel ahead of talks, as in the past.

"I'd like to see come concrete steps - more than just a cessation of testing", he said on CBS' "Face the Nation".

Donald Trump's diplomatic turn to N Korea deserves acclaim

In April, the leaders of North and South Korea are to meet there for their own historic bilateral talks.

I was disappointed that Trump hadn't stressed China's trade dependence more heavily in his first meetings with Xi.

Trump shocked the international community and analysts when he expressed on Thursday his intention to meet Kim Jong Un without any conditions. Even in the short term, Kim's aggressive stance could mean nuclear weapons in Taiwan, Japan and South Korea. And earlier this month the special envoy for North Korean policy, Joseph Yun, retired.

In his debut speech at the United Nations in September, Trump dubbed Kim a "rocket man" on a "suicide mission".

Not only did Trump surprise the South Koreans with his immediate yes, but he also suggested that they make the announcement at the White House. Among them are Geneva, Switzerland as well as Sweden, which has offered to help the US-North Korea talk. It is a reasonable question, given the US leader's changeable moods and the fact that the North Korean dictator has yet to issue an official invitation.

"This is not a real estate deal or a reality show", Rhodes said on ABC's "This Week".

Just as the Soviet Union agreed to downsize its stockpile to get parallel U.S. cuts, North Korea might settle for strict arms limits if we would provide meaningful security guarantees, scrap economic sanctions, reduce our troop strength or normalize relations. But I think it's a risk worth taking. And China has been employing thousands of North Korean workers in China, with their wages paid directly to Kim Jong Un's government.

The sanctions are staying on.

"Look, that's something that we're going to continue advocating for and pushing for".
