Trump thanks Singapore PM for hosting US-N Korea summit

Trump imposes to blows the new world order Trump thanks Singapore PM for hosting US-N Korea summit

The men were released Wednesday as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo left Pyongyang after meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un amid final plans for a Trump-Kim summit.

The top USA diplomat said the release of three American detainees set the conditions for a successful summit between the us and North Korea.

"A North Korean official came to the hotel shortly after to inform Pompeo that Kim had granted amnesties to the three and that they would be released at 7 p.m. local time, according to a senior USA official present for the exchange".

Their release came during a visit to Pyongyang by Mr Pompeo to arrange details of the meeting between Mr Trump and Mr Kim.

Holding a U.S. -North Korea summit on the Korean Peninsula would give the impression that the United States has made concessions and given the initiative to North Korea. Kim has said that North Korea now has the capability to strike the continental United States.

North Korea also freed USA citizens during visits by former Presidents Bill Clinton, in 2009, and Jimmy Carter, in 2010.

South Korea said Friday it will look closer into the circumstances surrounding the arrival of a dozen North Korean restaurant workers in 2016, after a television report suggested some of the women might have been brought to the South against their will.

That means Trump's stewardship of the nuclear crisis is now far more popular than the President himself, the network said.

"I think this will be a very big success", Trump said as three freed detainees from North Korea arrived back on US soil yesterday. When asked by reporters how it felt to be home, one of the men answered through a translator, "It's like a dream; we are very, very happy". It can be said that Trump's decision to choose a third-party country by attaching importance to neutrality was wise.

It also will be acceptable to Beijing, North Korea's only major ally and still a strong influence over Pyongyang.

He had written in a tweet on April 30: "Numerous countries are being considered for the peace, but would Peace House/Freedom House, on the Border of North and South Korea, be a more representative, important and lasting site than a third party country?"

Abe congratulated their release as Pyongyang's forward-looking step ahead of its summit with the USA, but stressed that many Japanese are still stuck in North Korea.

On Thursday, US Vice President Mike Pence praised Kim Jong Un for making moves toward peace, but expressed caution.

Pompeo was the head of the Central Intelligence Agency for 15 months prior to being sworn in as Secretary of State on April 26.

After the end of the Korean war in 1953 the South, an ally of the USA, embraced a capitalist philosophy. "South Korean diplomacy has turned fire and fury into summits and stability", Oba told VOA, referring to Trump's previously tough talks against Pyongyang.

Though he did break with tradition to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, the White House plan bogged down and the divide between Israelis and Palestinians seems as intractable as ever, prompting Trump's attention shift to North Korea.

Despite the NPT being "deeply flawed" with respect to its overt discrimination, being an "embarrassing" failure in having no time limit for the eight recognised nuclear-armed nations to achieve comprehensive nuclear disarmament, and being a "bad deal" for the rest of the world which is held ransom by the indefinite threat of nuclear war; it may be the only realistic avenue for the North Korean leader to explore.

At the time this news broke, Pompeo was holding a joint news conference with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha. "North Korea summit" and the denuclearization of North Korea.
