Kim Jong un meeting only if North Korea fulfils promises: White House

S. Korea's Spy Chief Meets Japanese Foreign Minister to Brief on N. Korea

Trump last week accepted the invitation to meet with Kim by the end of May following months of heightened tensions and exchanges of frequent military threats between the two leaders.

Mr Pompeo and Mr Mnuchin said the United States would make no concessions and would keep the pressure on North Korea by maintaining economic sanctions and a strong USA defense posture before the meeting.

According to the Blue House, Abe also dismissed some concerns that Kim is trying to buy time with the summits to advance his nuclear and missile technologies.

Many Democrats as well as Mr Trump's fellow Republicans said the USA should have demanded concessions before granting North Korea a meeting.

Japanese and North Korean leaders have not met since May 2004, when then Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi met Kim's father Kim Jong Il in North Korea. Kim also extended an invitation to Trump for a bilateral summit to discuss denuclearization, which Chung delivered to the White House last week.

Kim, repeatedly derided as "Little Rocket Man" by Trump, was "very aware" of his image, the official said, and reacted to comments made about him in a "relaxed" manner by joking about himself from time to time. He pledged strong cooperation with the South and the United States to resolve those issues.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted again, saying, "North Korea has not conducted a Missile Test since November 28, 2017, and has promised not to do so through our meetings". Tokyo, however, suspects that there are more victims. "Through those talks, we need to get the North to take concrete action".

Speaking after meeting Suh, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono credited recent changes in North Korea's position to increased pressure by worldwide society.

Kono told Suh that he was grateful for Seoul's efforts that brought a turnaround in the tense situation, the spokesman said in a statement.

"China's faithful implementation helped make the Security Council's resolution effective", Cheng wrote, citing a 52 percent decline in trade with North Korea in January against the year before that required "significant sacrifice" on China's part.

"The announcement of a meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim is a historic opportunity that holds great potential for the world", Haley said.

If negotiations follow a Trump-Xi summit, China will likely seek to participate, rather than leave the deliberations to the United States and the two Koreas. The administration officials credited toughened economic sanctions imposed by the United Nations, and pushed by the U.S., with helping bring Kim to the brink of negotiations.

Dutch Ambassador Karel van Oosterom, who chairs the council's North Korea sanctions committee, told reporters "we have to continue implementing the sanctions as they stand". -South Korean military exercises.

At the annual press conference held during China's National People's Congress, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi took credit for the Korean Peninsula breakthrough.
