Suh who was part of a South Korean delegation that met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang last week, is in Tokyo to brief Japanese officials on developments.

The news of a possible meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un triggered a heated debate among Chinese scholars who follow the North Korea nuclear crisis.

James Schoff, a former Pentagon adviser on East Asia, said Japanese officials are unnerved by Trump's unpredictability and fear that the USA could reach a deal with Kim on long-range North Korean missiles that threaten the US without addressing the shorter-range weapons that threaten Japan.

North Korea's foreign minister has briefly met Sweden's prime minister during a surprise trip to Stockholm that has fuelled speculation about a possible meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un.

Ivanka also garnered criticism for taking her father's seat among world leaders at the G20 Summit in July, a move that Trump called "very standard", and for leading Congress in a bipartisan roundtable discussion in May.

"Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze", Trump tweeted on March 9.

Sweden's foreign ministry has refused to comment on that possibility, saying only that the talks would "focus on Sweden's consular responsibilities as a protecting power for the United States, Canada and Australia".

Nerve agent row: Russian Federation expels 23 British diplomats amid increasing tensions
UK-Russia relations have been fractious ever since the assassination of another former Russian spy, Alexander Litvinenko, in 2006. Russian Federation has asked to be allowed to examine the evidence and claims that so far it has not been allowed to do so.

Mr Tillerson was scheduled to meet with Ms Kang during her three day visit to Washington but he was replaced by Trump's eldest daughter in a last minute switch.

"Xi Jinping offered a Chinese phrase that says "once hard ice melts, spring comes and flowers bloom" to describe the situation on the Korean peninsula and expressed his willingness to support the current situation", Chung told reporters on his return to Incheon International Airport. He has not made any public comments since he arrived in Stockholm on Thursday. As North Korea's top trade partner, China's execution tough economic sanctions against North Korea could have led to resentment from Pyongyang, Chinese experts argued. "We are hoping that if we can use our role and also our contacts there, we will put it to the best use, and then it's for the parties to decide".

Another spot in South Korea that has been raised as an option is scenic Jeju Island, off the southern coast, easily accessed by either boat or airplane from the Korean peninsula.

The reactor could be used to produce weapons-grade plutonium, but North Korea is believed to already have enough fissile material for multiple nuclear bombs, according to Joshua Pollack, a senior research associate at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey.

One of the most likely sites being discussed is the Joint Security Area in Panmunjom that straddles the Military Demarcation Line between North and South Korea.

Moon now has his wish granted as he prepares for a meeting in late April with Kim and basks in the worldwide glow of having engineered another upcoming summit - previously thought wildly unlikely - between the American and North Korean leaders.

The president's supporters insist that North Korea has been brought to the table by harsh sanctions, imposed after Trumpian tough talk at last scared such laggards as China and Russian Federation into curbing trade.
