Some analysts think Kim Jong-un desperately needs a deal with Trump

US officials travel to North Korea to prepare for summit despite uncertainty

Putin says Kim Jong Un 'did everything he promised to do'

Mr. Trump added that the talks were "moving along very nicely" and they were still looking at the original date of June 12 for the historic summit between Mr. Trump and North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un.

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.

After Saturday's surprise inter-Korean talks, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Kim was still committed to the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula.

A statement from North Korea's state news agency KCNA said Kim expressed "his fixed will" on the possibility of meeting Trump as previously planned.

A team of USA officials crossed into North Korea on Sunday for talks to prepare for a summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, as both sides press ahead with arrangements despite the question marks hanging over the meeting. He wrote: "We are having very productive talks with North Korea about reinstating the summit which, if it does happen, will likely remain in Singapore on the same date, June 12th, and, if necessary, will be extended beyond that date".

Moon on Sunday dodged a question on whether Kim clearly mentioned if he would agree to the USA demand for complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization.

Moon said the Pyongyang regime reaffirmed its commitment to give up its nuclear weapons but had its own security concerns if it took that step.

Abe also said it is necessary to make a USA -N.

U.S. President Donald Trump talks to the media in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, U.S., May 26, 2018. But Moon said Sunday that he and Kim made a decision to meet again, rather than have a telephone conversation, as their aides suggested "candid" face-to-face talks between the leaders.

Korea summit an opportunity to make substantial progress on North Korea's nuclear, missile and abduction issues. "I urge North Korea and the confirm each other's will by sharing their problems with each other and communicating directly".

Ahead of that summit, the Koreas established their first-ever leaders' hotline to enable Moon and Kim to engage in direct communication and defuse crises. The person, who asked not to be identified discussing internal matters, said the "maximum pressure" campaign to strangle North Korea's economy is working, and Kim's regime will have to come to the table eventually.

A magic embrace that would break layers of hostility encrusting the recent history of the Korean Peninsula at just one meeting between two dangerously powerful leaders with suspect capacity to wield their power responsibly always seemed like a tale told by an idiot full of sweet nothings signifying little.
