Japan PM hails North Korea talks on basis of denuclearisation

Japan PM hails North Korea talks on basis of denuclearisation Japan PM hails North Korea talks on basis of denuclearisation

In another freakish twist in modern politics, former National Basketball Association player Dennis Rodman is praising President Trump after the White House announced Trump had agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for talks by the end of May.

Kim has committed to stopping nuclear and missile testing in the run up to the meeting, South Korean National Security adviser Chung Eui-Yong told reporters at the White House on Thursday after meeting Trump.

Tillerson's comments came after President Trump agreed to a historic meeting with Kim, the first ever between a USA president and a North Korean leader.

"If President Trump does meet with Kim Jong Un, he's going to be going in unprepared and he's going to be giving to Kim what Kim wants, which is a positive photo op".

Optimists - including South Korean President Moon Jae-in - believe that talks can lead in the long term to peaceful reunification of the peninsula, particularly as sanctions leave North Korea isolated and poor. "You're on the way to a historical meeting no US president has ever done", the former National Basketball Association star told The Associated Press after news broke Thursday of plans to arrange a meeting between the Trump and Kim. What we're talking about is an invitation by the leader of North Korea to meet face-to-face with the president of the United States.

Chung, who credited Trump's "maximum pressure" campaign for the diplomatic opening on the nuclear issue, said Kim understands that routine U.S. No American president has ever met with a North Korea leader.

I've always been concerned, however, about the North Koreans providing nuclear technology to those who might well use it against us or our friends.

At the very least, the North would demand the withdrawal of USA troops from South Korea. Trump has promised that "by May", he will travel to the volatile nation's capital of Pyongyang for a meeting with Kim.

It's likely that North Korea will also push for summits with China, Russia and Japan later in the year to further break out of its isolation, Cheong said.

They were both taken to a hospital "where their conditions are described as not life-threatening or life-changing", police said. The star, 52, flew from the U.S. as model Miles Hurley , 21, was fighting for his life following the attack in a London street.

The move, deemed by some observers as a sign of a possible thaw in the two countries' relations, came after the just-concluded South Korea-hosted Winter Olympics, which showed signs that the relations between South Korea and the DPRK are improving. Undoubtedly, Kim has felt the sting of Trump's economic sanctions, but more than Kim, it is the Chinese who have the most to lose economically, especially if war were to break out on the Korean peninsula.

Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said her government welcomed "any dialogue with North Korea" but warned that "North Korea has a history of making agreements and then failing to honor them".

Hoare, of The Royal Institute of global affairs, believes North Korea's isolation could have helped push Kim Jong-un towards Trump. During the Pyongyang talks this week, the two Koreas agreed on a summit in late April, their first since 2007.

'We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea.

To ensure its interests are met in the longer term, China is likely to push for a return to a six-party type talks: China, Russia, Japan, the USA, in addition to North and South Korea.

Finally, in 2008, six-party talks were held in Beijing to address the nuclear issue, but broke down over North Korea's refusal to allow worldwide inspectors unfettered access to suspected nuclear sites.

Kimmel noted the significance of Kim Jong Un extending an olive branch to Trump: "It's a really big deal because olive branches are really all they have to eat there".

The White House confirmed talks between the leaders will be held "at a place and time to be determined" but South Korea claims that a meeting would take place by May.

"That is a decision the president took himself".
