Trump and Kim should not be left alone together, expert warns

Chung Eui-Yong right head of the presidential National Security Office shakes hands with North Korean leader Kim Trump and Kim should not be left alone together, expert warns

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has said President Moon Jae-in will no longer have to wake up early in the morning and preside over national security council meetings to discuss missile launches by the communist nation, according to a presidential official.

That explains why China never took the ultimate step of stopping oil from flowing into North Korea, maintaining the lifeline that fuels the economy and army, and keeps the regime in place.

On Wednesday, the day after the South Korean delegation had left Pyongyang bearing Kim Jong-un's invitation to meet Donald Trump for talks, state news outlets carried a commentary saying the U.S. would "have to pay dearly for its military provocation" and calling it a "wrecker of peace on the Korean peninsula and source of war of aggression". -South Korea military drills "must continue".

The news comes just days after President Trump publicly backed up North Korea's apparent shift regarding discussions around denuclearization.

Scarborough and Brzezinski's remarks come after a stunning Thursday announcement that Trump had agreed to meet with the North Korean leader.

The White House also confirmed that Trump is ready to meet Kim "by May", although an exact time and location are yet to be determined. At the news conference, he called Kim Jong Un, ruler of the repressive state, a "very good guy". A personal meeting would have been all but unthinkable when Trump was being dismissed as a "senile dotard" and the Korean "rocket man" was snapping off weapons tests in his quest for a nuclear arsenal that could threaten the US mainland. The two countries have been locked in a formal state of war since the onset of the Korean War in the 1950s. In Europe, the Stoxx 600 Index was broadly unchanged at 5:45 a.m.as traders try to digest the USA tariff news and yesterday's European Central Bank meeting, while waiting for payrolls data.

At the very least, the North would demand the withdrawal of US troops from South Korea.

"The challenge is that the North Korea regime is a global champion, along with the Iranian regime, in playing us as fools", Mark Dubowitz, CEO of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, said in a statement.

Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATVI) Director Robert J. Corti Sells 88000 Shares

Mogherini said the European Union is looking forward to the outcome of the talks and that the bloc supports all efforts to obtain "the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula". If there is no progress before a May meeting, what is the point of a face-to-face discussion between Trump and a recalcitrant dictator? President Donald Trump indicated that the U.S.is open to the idea of talks.

The Republican politician said on Thursday that he hoped for peace, but warned Kim that "it will be the end" of him if he tried to take advantage of Trump. "That would make me want to talk I think".

A senior administration official told Reuters Trump had agreed to the meeting because it "made sense to accept an invitation to meet with the one person who can actually make decisions instead of repeating the sort of long slog of the past".

Some US officials and experts worry North Korea could buy time to build up and refine its nuclear arsenal if it drags out talks with Washington.

Chung says Kim told the South Koreans he is "committed to denuclearization" and pledged that "North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests".

Lawmaker wants to question businessman in Mueller probe: In other Mueller news, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee - Rep. Adam Schiff of California - said on Thursday that he wants to question George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman who is cooperating with special counsel Mueller.

"I understand if the past is an indication of the future, North Korea will be all talk and no action, ? Sen". "Otherwise we are setting ourselves up for a major diplomatic failure".

In February, Vice President Mike Pence said that the U.S.is willing to talk with the North-but that the maximum pressure campaign would not let up. And the North has made a habit of reaching out after raising fears during previous crises, with offers of dialogue meant to win aid and concessions.
