White House: Pompeo to Meet Top N. Korean Official in NY

South Korean President Calls For More Impromptu Talks With North Korea Kim Jong-un commits to North Korea denuclearization as U.S. delegation arrives

Kim Yong Chol has played a central role in the recent thaw in relations between North Korea and South Korea, as well as the United States.

Before he cancelled the summit, Trump did not rule out an incremental approach that would provide incentives along the way to the North.

"Kim Jong-un agrees with me on this. King Jong Un knows his program inside and out", Hayden said. Those meetings are expected to continue into Tuesday.

Trump initially scrapped the June 12 summit after repeated threats by North Korea to pull out over what it saw as confrontational remarks by U.S. officials demanding unilateral disarmament.

On Sunday, US negotiators, headed by Washington's ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, began meeting North Korean counterparts in the truce village of Panmunjom in the demilitarised zone (DMZ) that divides the two Koreas.

"They're playing a game", Sen.

But Mr. Moon also made clear that any steps to dial back Mr. Kim's nuclear capabilities could come with strings attached. They are what give him his prestige and importance. What do they expect to see happen? "I just, I'm not very optimistic about that". Media reports said Pompeo could make a third trip to Pyongyang after Kim's USA visit.

The on-again, off-again summit seems to be on again.

"This is not a reward for bad behavior at all", Clapper said.

"These folks are not going to get rid of all their nuclear weapons", Hayden said.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday morning in an appearance on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends" that the president had "sent over two delegations - one for logistics and one for more diplomatic purposes that are on the ground making the logistic preparations for June 12".

Kim often "explained everything about the South's political and military situation for more than an hour without looking at a script", defector and former army colonel Choi Joo Hwal told the Seoul-based Daily NK news website in 2016.

According to the State Department, the USA team met with North Korean officials at the same DMZ site, the village of Panmunjom. It remained unclear whom Kim Yong Chol will meet in the United States.

Choe Kang Il, a North Korean Foreign Ministry official involved with North American issues, also was spotted at Beijing airport, according to Yonhap. But it's not known what else he'll do there. The daughter of a former premier, she is also thought to have direct access to Kim.

JOSEPH DETRANI: He has a very rich background on national security issues for North Korea - I mean, certainly anything touching the military intelligence, nuclear-related, missile-related issues. As you look at the moves by North Korea, do you think they are serious about getting rid of their nuclear weapons?

Still, it might be able to narrow the gap. "What's uncertain for Kim is not his intention to denuclearize, but the USA stance in hostile relations with North Korea and whether the US can really secure and guarantee his regime".

On his way to Nashville, President Trump ignored questions about the quickly changing status of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

But the preparations have become increasingly tumultuous as the summit date draws nearer.

It's possible the trip could be a reciprocal visit after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, twice in recent weeks for meetings with Kim Jong-un, after which he said there was a "shared understanding" between the two sides about what they hope to achieve in the summit.

Trump tweeted early Tuesday: "We have put a great team together for our talks with North Korea".

Trump confirmed that he was on his way to NY. Trump told a group of reporters late Saturday that the effort to revive the summit is, quote, "moving along nicely".

Japanese broadcaster NHK showed footage of Kim Chang Son, Kim Jong Un's de facto chief of staff, arriving in Singapore, escorted by three bodyguards.

They later reported that Kim changed his flight to go to NY on Wednesday.
