Kang's comments come after the stunning announcement earlier this month that President Trump had agreed to meet with Kim for talks about the country's nuclear program.

Yonhap news agency reports Choe Kang Il, North Korea's deputy director-general for North American affairs, was seen at Beijing Capital International Airport before boarding a flight to Finland.

There, it provides diplomatic services for not only Swedes, but also U.S., Canadian and Australian citizens.

One of the attendees would be Kathleen Stephens, a former U.S. Ambassador to South Korea from 2008 to 2011.

Before a date or a venue for the summit can be set, North Korea will have to publicly confirm that it sent the invitation and intends to honour it, by attending a meeting to discuss giving up its nuclear arsenal. -North Korean summits, Seoul said Monday.

Kang said it shows Mr. Trump's "determination to resolve this issue once and for all", something she says is "hugely appreciated by the South Korean public". They made the mistake of believing they had convinced North Korean leaders of the error of their ways.

Trump agreed to meet with Kim on March 8 after a briefing from South Korean officials.

"The main focus for the talks was the security situation on the Korean Peninsula", Wallstrom said.

North Korean officials are expected to meet with USA and South Korean representatives in Helsinki, Finland, for unofficial talks ahead of possible major summit meetings. The North has long maintained such a stance, saying it won't abandon its nuclear weapons unless the United States pulls out its troops from South Korea and Japan and stops regular military drills with South Korea that it views as an invasion rehearsal.

He said Kim had "given his word" on his commitment to denuclearisation, a key condition for the unprecedented leader-to-leader talks. In a phone call with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Trump expressed "cautious optimism" over recent developments regarding North Korea.

In the past, that has meant Washington would have to withdraw all of its troops from South Korea, a condition no USA president has been willing to consider. In 2014, the director of national intelligence, James R. Clapper, travelled secretly to North Korea to negotiate the release of two Americans, Kenneth Bae and Matthew Miller.

South Korea's foreign ministry said in a statement North Korea would participate in the meeting joined by former South Korean officials and academics but did not provide further details.
