North Korea 'replaces top three military officials'

The announcement of the timing for the first meeting between the two leaders came just three days after Trump hosted a North Korean delegation at the White House bearing a letter from Kim. "I think Trump has been one of the worst, if not the worst, worldwide statesmen that the U.S. has ever seen".

Two of the most maverick leaders of the world, US President Donald Trump and North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-un are finally meeting, the White House confirmed on Monday night.

"I think [Kim] didn't realise who Donald Trump was at that time, I guess, until he started to read the book and started to get to understand him".

Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun told reporters: "We will monitor related developments".

Analysts say the USA wants North Korea to agree to ship some of its nuclear warheads and intercontinental ballistic missiles out of the country within months - a result that could be enough for Trump to claim a victory ahead of the U.S. midterm elections in November.

Friday Trump downplayed expectations for a major breakthrough at the summit, saying it will be the beginning of a process.

Mattis said on Sunday at a defense conference in Singapore that North Korea will win relief from crippling US economic sanctions "only when it demonstrates verifiable and irreversible steps to denuclearization".

"There's a strong belief within North Korea ... that if only the United States would stop its hostility then North Korea would be safe, no one else would interfere", Hoare said.

North Korea also poses different types of security threats to Washington and Seoul.

While Trump has made gestures toward human rights issues in North Korea, those efforts have largely been created to increase pressure on the country's government.

"Meetings to adjust agenda items will likely continue to be held at Panmunjeom or elsewhere until the summit next week", Shin said.

Another American official, quoted by Reuters, says preparations for the US-North Korea summit have made only "halting progress", citing differences between US negotiators and the Trump administration.

As for other concerns, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders last week wouldn't say whether Trump would bring up the North's extensive chemical and biological weapons programs since the priority is the nuclear question.
