Minister also said that Moscow will be glad if a meeting between the USA and North Korean leaders, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, actually takes place.

The Swedish embassy in Pyongyang has long facilitated diplomatic contact between North Korea and the United States, which does not have an embassy there. McMaster told Kono that a nuclear-armed North Korea can not be tolerated and that cooperation between Japan, the United States and South Korea is important.

"We really want to help out", Lofven said in an interview with Sweden's TV4 network.

Senior officials staged a flurry of calls and top-level meetings on Friday as they scrambled to make a proposed nuclear summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un a reality.

Ri Yong-ho arrived in the Swedish capital on Thursday evening with Choe Kang-il, deputy director general of the foreign ministry's North America section.

The Swedish foreign ministry has said the talks will focus on "Sweden's consular responsibilities as a protecting power for the United States, Canada and Australia" and will also address "the security situation on the Korean peninsula".

"We can be a channel or do whatever we can to see that the dialogue is smooth", he said, adding that "with that relation with North Korea, I believe that they trust us, We are a non-aligning country, and-on military, non-aligning country".

There has been no official word from North Korea since the invitation was delivered via South Korean officials in Washington.

Ri, a former diplomat in Stockholm and London and an ex-nuclear envoy with experience negotiating with rivals South Korea and the United States, was tapped as Pyongyang's foreign minister in 2016.

Trump responded with a surprise announcement that he was willing to meet Kim in a bid to resolve the crisis over North Korea's development of nuclear missiles capable of hitting the United States.

Trump has agreed to meet Kim by May.

So far, North Korea has yet to comment publicly on what it hopes to gain from the talks.

So the visit has prompted speculation it might be part of preparations for the US-North Korea summit.

The allegations from Jane's Intelligence Review come just weeks after it was suggested that Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump could meet face-to-face to talk about the nuclear disarmament of Pyongyang.
