"Concrete actions" required before Trump, Kim meet: White House

A senior administration official said Trump was elected to take a different approach from previous presidents. Chung. Allegedly, Chung told Trump that the DPRK said it wanted to meet with him, and Trump told Chung to let everyone know that a meeting was on.

There has been limited reaction from Kim's regime, but South Korean President Moon Jae-in said news of the summit - announced by his national security advisor on a visit to Washington - was "like a miracle". She visited South Korea in her teens as a member of North Korea's cheerleading squad.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has often been publicly contradicted by the White House over North Korea, including on Thursday when just hours before the announcement of a summit he said "we are a long ways from negotiations". But questions remained over exactly what North Korea means by "denuclearize" and what the USA might be risking with a highly publicized summit that will build up Kim's stature among world leaders.

During a telephone conversation, Trump and the ever-more-powerful Chinese president committed to "maintain pressure and sanctions until North Korea takes tangible steps toward complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization", according to the White House.

That put the zone effectively under Syrian government control as the remaining strip of territory was within weapons range. There was no confirmation by any of the rebel groups based in eastern Ghouta of negotiations to leave eastern Ghouta.

The White House said that Trump had accepted the invitation, and Chung Eui-yong, a South Korean official who conveyed it, told reporters that the President would meet with Kim within two months.

Trump's move is a sharp departure from 60 years of largely arms-length USA diplomacy when it comes to North Korea, not to mention his own previous bellicose rhetoric against Pyongyang.

"The fundamental definition of denuclearization is quite different between Washington and Pyongyang", Revere said, noting that as recently as January 1, Kim had vigorously reaffirmed the importance of nukes for North Korea's security.

Some Republicans have expressed confidence in Trump's ability to negotiate, however, even as they continue to voice their skepticism that the meeting may be fruitless.

Others, like school children and farmers, don't like waiting on the bus in the dark or pitching hay to cows before dawn. Sunday, so you'll "lose" an hour of sleep (unless you sleep in another hour or go to bed an hour early).

"Let's not forget that the North Koreans did promise something", Sanders said, responding to a reporter's question about why Trump agreed to a meeting - unprecedented between leaders of the two nations - without preconditions. "We have no ambassador in Seoul-not even a nominee-and no senior State Department official charged with overseeing the North Korean nuclear challenge". "I would be very, very surprised if North Korea actually gives up the nukes and missiles it has".

Trump tweeted: "great progress is being made".

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce welcomed the summit announcement.

"I'm very anxious that Donald Trump will go into these negotiations and Kim Jong-un will simply take advantage of him", Warren added. "This maximum pressure campaign and this process has been ongoing since the president first took office", Sanders added. "We will not abandon #SouthKorea we will never accept #NorthKorea as legitimate nuke weapon power & missiles that can strike USA will not go unchallenged", Sen.

The retailer told The Verge : "We're aware of this and working to fix it". Reports of the issue on social media date back as far as February 22.

"In the weeks before the summit, clear-eyed diplomacy and preparation will be vital, given the risks involved in such a high-stakes leaders meeting this early in a negotiation", Schiff said in a statement.
