North Korea calls United States claims about upcoming summit "misleading"

North Korea calls United States claims about upcoming summit North Korea calls United States claims about upcoming summit "misleading"

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in vowed "complete denuclearisation" of the Korean peninsula in the first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade on April 27, but the declaration did not include concrete steps to reach that goal. The U.S. leader attempted to visit the Demilitarized Zone by helicopter last November during his visit to the South, but the trip was halted by poor visibility.

The comments were widely seen as a negotiating tactic against the Trump administration.

The Trump and Kim Jong Un meeting has been confirmed and a date set - though which date? - we don't know yet.

Citing several diplomatic sources, the report said the meeting will likely occur between June 9 and 15, after Trump attends the G-7 Summit scheduled for June 8-9 in Quebec. At the summit. Kim discussed and agreed to a number of measures that would improve North-South relations, and indicated be would be willing to discuss denuclearization, although many details of the conditions were left out.

The newspaper suggested that the possibility of Singapore hosting the landmark meeting had "increased greatly", after a decision by Trump to host South Korean president Moon Jae-in at the White House later this month, without giving further explanation.

"The U.S.is deliberately provoking the DPRK at the time when the situation on the Korean Peninsula is moving toward peace and reconciliation", the spokesman was quoted as saying. "Just asking!" Mr. Trump said on Twitter late last month.

Singapore has become the most likely choice for the White House due to practical reasons, including that both the USA and North Korea have embassies there, which would make preparations easier.

But "it is also familiar ground for the North Koreans", according to Graham, having hosted earlier track-2, or backchannel, talks involving officials from the country.

"This act can not be construed otherwise than a risky attempt to ruin the hardly-won atmosphere of dialogue and bring the situation back to square one", the statement read.

Mr Trump told the National Rifle Association's annual convention in Dallas he had toned down his rhetoric in anticipation of the talks after labelling Mr Kim "Little Rocket Man" past year and threatening him with "fire and fury". "Now I'm trying to calm it down a little bit", he said.

On the possible release of three American detainees in the North, the White House official said he has "nothing to announce". "And a lot of things have already happened with respect to the hostages". "What we need is only peace", he said. Trump hinted that the release of Kim Dong-chul, Kim Hak-song and Tony Kim was in the offing.
