Although it's reported that Kim Jong-un is keen for President Trump to sign a peace treaty, experts are now concerned what might be said if the two notoriously volatile meet in private. "The South Koreans are clearly heavily involved".

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

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

Washington, Mar 13 The meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un would go as planned if Pyongyang sticks to the promises it made, particularly regarding missiles and nuclear test, the White House said today.

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".

It is natural that Beijing would have reservations about what a Kim-Trump meeting could mean for its own interests in the region, said Zhang Liangui, a professor of the International Strategic Academy of the Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party.

The U.S. and many other nations are pushing for North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program. Trump has vowed to prevent that, by force if necessary. The North's main newspaper, the Rodong Sinmun, which is run by the ruling party, had only put out a few paragraphs about a visit by senior South Korean officials last week. So they are engaged in a complicated process of both trying to blackmail the West, and blackmail South Korea and most importantly trying to blackmail China, keep adversaries at bay and continue to be able to attract the kind of support they need to continue to exist."In this view, North Korea observes the long history of US -orchestrated regime change in non-nuclear states". A turning point may have been reached when the North sent its athletes to participate in the recent Winter Olympics held in Pyongchang, South Korea.

The U.S. and South Korea hold military manoeuvrs every year.

On Monday, Sanders said the administration fully expects the meeting to take place. In an interview en route to the Middle East, Defence Secretary Jim Mattis declined to discuss the timing and scale of the exercises.

Those concerns came sharply into focus when North Korea literally shook China with an underground nuclear test that produced an natural disaster felt over the border. "When you get in a position like this, the potential for misunderstanding remains very high", he said. Sherman said that while she did not believe Kim is "in any rush to denuclearize", she was glad the U.S. is entering into talks, even if it just starts with "a meeting".

But by Monday, Pyongyang had yet to comment on Mr Trump's announcement.
