N Korea’s Kim hopes Trump summit will ‘end history of confrontation’ - Moon

N Korea’s Kim hopes Trump summit will ‘end history of confrontation’ - Moon

Trump told reporters that they are still considering Singapore as the venue for their talks.

"Chairman Kim and I have agreed that the June 12 summit should be held successfully, and that our quest for the Korean peninsula's denuclearisation and a perpetual peace regime should not be halted", Mr. Moon said.

Moon, who returned to Seoul on Thursday morning after meeting Trump in Washington in an effort to keep the U.S.

On Thursday, Trump had called off the meeting scheduled for June 12 in Singapore, citing hostile remarks from the North. Pyongyang responded the following day, saying that it is open to meeting with the USA at any time, which then prompted Trump to hint at the possibility of the meeting going ahead as planned.

Both Pyongyang and Washington are pressing ahead on plans for a meeting between the two leaders after Trump pulled out of the scheduled Jun 12 summit on Thursday, only to reconsider the decision the next day. KCNA, North Korea's official state news agency, reported Sunday that that Kim Jong Un "expressed his fixed will" to hold the summit with President Trump and "thanked" President Moon for acting as a mediator to reconcile the differences between North Korea and the U.S.

In the next few days I will speak. "If there's something behind this, he should come and clarify what it is today", Ramos said. On Liverpool's night of tears in the Champions League final, goalkeeper Loris Karius cried long and hard.

But the United States president, after his surprise press announcement on Thursday that he was calling off the summit, said on Friday that he was still open to the idea of meeting Kim.

The press conference, held at the presidential Blue House in Seoul, followed the surprise, previously unannounced summit held between Moon and Kim at the North Korean side of the truce village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone on Saturday.

Trump, meanwhile, hinted just days after cancelling the summit with Kim that a meeting with the North Korean leader is still possible. "They very much want to do it".

At their first meeting on April 27, Kim and Moon first announced "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" and permanent peace, which Seoul has tried to sell as a meaningful breakthrough to set up the summit with Trump. "During the South Korea-US summit, President Trump said the US is willing to clearly put an end to hostile relations (between the US and North Korea) and help (the North) achieve economic prosperity if North Korea conducts denuclearization".

Surprised Singaporeans pursued North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sunday before realising the portly man with slick black hair near the Marina Bay Sands hotel was an impersonator. But Kim, through two summits with Chinese President Xi Jinping in March and May, has called for a phased and synchronized process in which every action he takes is met with a reciprocal reward from the United States.

Steady weakening is expected after landfall, and Alberto is forecast to become a tropical depression by Monday night or Tuesday. Rainfall and wind extend far away from the center of the storm, one of the classic hallmarks of a subtropical storm.

Before he canceled the summit, Trump this past week did not rule out an incremental approach that would provide incentives along the way to the North.

Tensions were calmed after Kim extended an olive branch by offering to send a delegation to the Winter Olympics in South Korea, sparking a rapid detente that led to Trump agreeing to hold direct talks with Pyongyang.

Trump cited hostile comments from top North Korean officials as his reason for scrapping the meeting, as well as concern about the country's commitment to giving up its nuclear weapons. "And if President Trump's 'brand, ' and that's the right word here, going into this meeting demands something like that, this is going to end up in a very bad place".

Saturday's summit marks the fourth meeting between the leaders of the two Koreas since they were divided at the end of the World War II in 1945.
