Maybe it'll happen at a different time.

US officials say preparations are still underway.

"There are certain conditions we want to happen".

"I do think he's serious. But there is a good chance that we'll have the meeting". "That doesn't mean it won't work out over a period of time". "It may not work out for June 12".

Thanks to American power and leverage in the region, in addition to Kim Jong Un's obsession with survival, the United States retains the capability to deter Pyongyang from rash actions.We should all be cheering the Trump administration along as it embarks on its most important foreign policy mission yet.

But doubts have since been cast by both sides on whether that potentially historic meeting will take place. -South Korean military exercises that it calls an invasion rehearsal. And I think things changed after that meeting.

The president said he hoped Chinese President Xi Jinping was actually committed to the goal of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, calling him a "world-class poker player".

Foreign and South Korean journalists were on their way on Wednesday to cover the destruction of North Korea's nuclear test site, a gesture of goodwill before a planned historic summit with the USA.

"There's a chance, a very substantial chance, it won't work out", Mr Trump said during an Oval Office meeting with Mr Moon.

"Do we really need denuclearisation as a premise for unification?" she said.

It has said in previous, failed talks that it could consider giving up its arsenal if the United States provided security guarantees by removing its troops from South Korea and withdrew its so-called nuclear umbrella of deterrence from South Korea and Japan.

Troy Stangarone, senior director of congressional affairs and trade at the Washington-based non-profit Korea Economic Institute, told Xinhua that despite the recent tensions, a postponement of the Trump-Kim meeting is more likely than cancellation. Moon expressed "every confidence" in Trump's ability to hold the summit and bring about peace.

The expert added that one of the keys to the Peninsula's denuclearization will be how benefits are given to the DPRK to keep Pyongyang engaged in the process. Trump said he'd noticed "a little change" in Kim's attitude after the trip.

North Korea cancelled high-level talks with South Korea, saying the South's joint military exercises with the U.S. - which it had previously said it would tolerate - were a "provocation". "He will be safe, he will be happy, his country will be rich, his country will be hardworking and very prosperous".

Douglas Paal, vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said that "the DPRK did not threaten to cancel the meeting".

"We're optimistic that we can achieve an outcome that would be great for the world", Pompeo said. "The United States wants almost immediate denuclearization; the North wants it in phases". His spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said Trump was referring to a commitment to seriously discuss denuclearization. Both parties to the talks are invested in holding the meeting, with Kim seeing an opportunity for worldwide legitimacy and Trump the prospect of securing Korean stability - and perhaps a Nobel Peace Prize.
