"President Trump thanked Prime Minister Lee for his willingness to host President Trump's June 12 meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un", the White House said in a statement.

The announcement comes on the heels of the release of three American prisoners who had been detained for more than a year in North Korea.

Even if the two countries resume dialogue, North Korea may not provide Japan with accurate information on the fate of any abductees.

Kim had revealed plans to shut down the country's northeastern testing ground by the end of May during his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in last month.

Washington's focus is on disarming Kim's regime, which has recently tested what appear to be missiles capable of carrying his nuclear threat to United States cities.

"We had good conversations about the histories of our two nations", he added.

The North said it planned to invite journalists from the US, South Korea, China, Russia and Britain to inspect the process.

Kang praised the upcoming meeting between Trump and Kim in Singapore as an "historic" opportunity, but added a few notes of skepticism as well. Trump then emerged from the plane, followed by the three men.

Of course, what that right path is varies according to interpretation and there are indications that North Korea and the USA are far apart on some issues, with the US insisting on a "robust verification program" that assures the regime carries out the agreement.

"I'm very honored to have helped the three folks", he said.

The trio - Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim - all held on charges of espionage, arrived at Joint Base Andrews just outside of Washington, D.C., at about 2:40 a.m. ET.

"North Korea agrees in a certain time table to give up nukes and inspectors go in", told the person who requested anonymity to Alex Ward of Vox.

The US President had earlier said on his Twitter it would be "quite a scene" when the detainees arrived in Washington.

"But we got, up front, our people home".

"If North Korea takes bold action to quickly denuclearise, the United States is prepared to work with North Korea to achieve prosperity on the par with our South Korean friends", he said.

It's true that European powers tried to save the JCPOA by proposing a package that addressed Trump's concerns about the agreement.

Former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter visited after leaving office. Last year, North Korea tested intercontinental ballistic missiles such as the Hwasong-14 and Hwasong-15.

It will be the first ever summit between the leaders of the two countries.

So far, the North Korean regime has made vague pledges to "denuclearize" but has not spelled out what that means, when it would happen or how it would be implemented.

If Trump can not get the big breakthrough he wants in denuclearization, he may try instead to negotiate a treaty to establish diplomatic relations with the North and formally end the 1950-53 Korean War, which was halted by an armistice.
