While the proposed meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has been the subject of banner headlines worldwide, it has garnered no official media coverage in the reclusive North.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump. He says it's "very important that those conservations are held quietly" between North Korea and the U.S.

Trump agreed to meet with Kim Jong Un by the end of May and the two Koreas will hold a summit by end-April.

North Korea offered the talks in the first place, after all, with the proposal delivered through South Korea's delegation, which visited both Pyongyang and Washington D.C. last week.

North Korea's silence on its upcoming summits with the United States and South Korea is likely due to caution over organising its stance regarding the meetings, South Korea's Ministry of Unification said on Monday.

"I think it shows the effectiveness of the maximum pressure campaign, and that's one of the reasons that we're not letting up on the maximum pressure campaign, and we're going to continue pushing forward on it", Sanders said.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has accepted Kim's offer to meet near their shared border next month, a meeting in which Kim was expected to suggest resuming cultural exchanges and family reunions.

Because "a handful of platforms...control which ideas and opinions are seen and shared", he says, they're ripe for co-opting. The root of the problem, he says, is that too much power has been concentrated in the hands of too few online corporations.

"There were agreements between the US and North Korea to open up discussion on a peace treaty, but they never materialized", Koh Yu-hwan, a professor of North Korean studies at Dongguk University in Seoul told Bloomberg, noting that conditions were critical.

South Korea's National Security Office chief Chung Eui-yong who led the delegation will head to Russian Federation on Tuesday after meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday, the Blue House said.

South Korea and USA officials are reportedly in discussions over how to conduct upcoming large-scale military drills- largely meant as a display of military might- without provoking the North Korean government.

Tillerson spoke Monday at a news conference in Nigeria. The decision drew both support from countries seeking to defuse tensions between North Korea and the USA, and warnings that Kim could be seeking more time to develop his weapons and reduce pressure from global sanctions.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley said that sanctions "have helped bring North Korea" to the negotiating table. They were postponed during the recent Winter Olympics in South Korea which provided an impetus for the current diplomatic push on the divided Korean Peninsula.

President Trump has been very optimistic about the chances of these talks.

North Korea's state media have lauded the thaw in relations with South Korea.
