N Korean official visits Hanoi ahead of Trump-Kim summit

Trump and North Korea's Kim meet at the start of their summit in Singapore North Korea reveal Donald Trump SHOWDOWN: Kim and US president to meet in Vietnam

He said he expected Trump and Kim would talk about "denuclearization" and "peace mechanisms on the Korean Peninsula" at the Hanoi summit.

Joel Wit, a former US diplomat who helped reach and implement a 1994 agreement with North Korea, believes a declaration is "close to a done deal", calling it a first step in a "fairly long road toward" closer economic and diplomatic ties and other confidence-building steps that could end the nuclear threat.

Relatives of Japanese abducted by North Korean agents decades ago directly appealed to North Korea's leader for their immediate return, saying if realized, they will not oppose normalization of diplomatic ties between Tokyo and Pyongyang.

Meari touched upon progress that the two Koreas have made over the past year or so and added, "There's no reason North Korea-US relations can't have a major breakthrough, as we have seen in inter-Korean relations".

"It's a strategic decision on our part to build a permanent and stable peace regime and to honor an important responsibility we have before the global community", the propaganda site said.

Both leaders pledged to work towards denuclearisation "of the Korean peninsula" during their first summit in Singapore in June.

Trump to Declare National Emergency to Build Border Wall, Mitch McConnell Says
Sanders said the White House was "very prepared" for a legal challenge but said there shouldn't be one. Fortunately, there is a legal mechanism in place , although technically it's never been done before.

Kim and Trump met for the first time in June past year in Singapore.

The trip was mainly aimed at easing concerns about skepticism over North Korea's will to denuclearize and reaffirming the alliance between Seoul and Washington. They have really taken advantage of the United States. While Meari did not specify what actions it hoped to see, the North Korean regime has repeatedly demanded an end to global sanctions on its most lucrative industries, particularly coal and seafood.

Ruddy said sources told him how disappointed the president was about Coats' threat assessment of North Korea during a hearing with lawmakers last month.

In the United States view, North Korea has yet to take concrete steps to give up its nuclear weapons. Recent studies suggest that it has not dismantled its nuclear program or taken proactive steps to do away with remaining fissile material. No more testing of nuclear (weapons).

DPRK is the acronym of North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. "But much more importantly than all of it - much more important - much, much more important that that is we have a great relationship".

In another article Monday highlighted by Yonhap, the newspaper advised North Koreans to "tighten our shoe strings and run fast, looking for a higher target as we are facing a decisive moment".
