He had met earlier with the North Korean leader in Pyongyang.

"It is expected that there will be more rapid progress regarding the freezing and dismantling of the North Korean nuclear program than in the past, as the leaders of the USA and North Korea will meet directly this time", he said.

South Korean conservatives have had two nightmare scenarios about President Donald Trump: He would embroil their country in a ruinous war with North Korea, or sell out their interests to the North.

The North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un is inclined to sign a peace treaty with the U.S, Dong-A Ilb, South Korea's leading daily reported Monday.

The "greatest risk", she said, is "that the President and his team give this an effort, but because they don't get every single thing that they want that they say it's hopeless, and really create the prerequisite for war".

Carranza said the meeting place will be a crucial factor. It has continued to warn the United States and Japan against war-mongering, but its rhetoric has been tame compared with threats exchanged at the height of tensions a year ago.

McMaster said the council had shown "unity and resolve that has us now at the point where we may be able to pursue a diplomatic solution on the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula". "So, he would use this to extract payoffs", McMaster continued, "as the regime has done with their nuclear program in the past, and to drive the States and our allies away from this peninsula that he would then try to dominate."For those duly skeptical of the efficacy and wisdom of preventive war - not least because of the incredible human suffering it would necessarily entail-the truth of McMaster's argument is not almost so "clear" as he claims.As retired Col. Andrew Bacevich, a military historian, has argued that, Kim is indeed "engaged in a huge game of blackmail", but not as McMaster describes".

South Korea's spy chief has met with Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono to brief on the results of his recent meetings with the leaders of the US and North Korea. "Asked if the White House still expected the meeting to go forward, Press Secretary Huckabee Sanders said: "€We fully expect that it will".

According to Suh, Abe expressed support for denuclearization talks between the North and the United States, emphasizing that Pyongyang should take "concrete" steps toward dismantling its nuclear program. The only requirements were the terms already on offer to North Korea: "They cannot engage in missile testing, they cannot engage in nuclear testing and they cannot object to US-South Korean joint military exercises". "He can start by nominating a qualified candidate for the position of USA ambassador to the ROK [Republic of Korea]". In recent years, the North has repeatedly tested nuclear bombs and intercontinental ballistic missiles which, it announced a few months ago, can now reach any city on the USA mainland.

Some experts are concerned that North Korea could be seeking to delay global action while strengthening its nuclear program.

'The president has been very clear in what the objective is here.

Kim Jung-un can, on the other hand, claim the opposite; that his success in the missile and nuclear spheres that brought USA territories within their reach can be credited for the breakthrough.

Trump said Saturday that he believes North Korea will abide by its pledge to suspend missile tests while he prepares for the summit.
