Putin to MEET Kim Jong-un as Russian Federation invites North Korean dictator

The US has said preparations for the 12 June between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore are going well. "Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!"

Kawasaki declined to say how much ICAN could stump up but said part of the Nobel Prize award would be put to the summit "in order to support peace in the Korean peninsula and a nuclear weapon-free world".

If Trump travels alone to Singapore, Kim is expected not to bring his wife Ri Sol-ju either.

The summit was first announced in March, following a strong diplomatic push by South Korean President Moon Jae-in earlier this year.

Kim Jong-un will reportedly be staying at the Fullerton Hotel. But he ultimately made a decision to turn down an invitation to meet with North Korea's then-leader, after determining that Kim couldn't be trusted.

Syrian president Bashar al-Assad plans to pay a state visit to North Korea, the North's official news agency says.

North Korea, in return, is thought to want the USA to relieve sanctions against it, remove it from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism, and begin steps to open diplomatic relations with the communist state - a result that could be considered a win by the North's leader ahead of the 70th anniversary of North Korea's founding in September.

She also urged her critics to be fair, adding: "Please don't compare me2 other people who have said frightful things". "I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC to let me apologize and make amends", Barr wrote in the since-deleted post .


Trump told reporters Friday on Lavrov's meeting with Kim Jong-un, "I didn't like the Russian meeting yesterday. I hope it won't be disrupted, although there are no 100% chances", Lavrov said.

"To have a summit with a US President is something that many countries aspire to".

There is also a chance Kim may have a bilateral summit with Putin. South Korean intelligence officials said he had been executed for corruption and abuse of power, only to see him appear at a major party assembly as a politburo candidate three months later. A friendly North Korea may help the United States reduce its military bill on the peninsula while still being in a position to keep an eye on China.

A Seoul government source said, "Right after Foreign Minister Lavrov visited Pyongyang on May 31, North Korean media reported that the two sides agreed to a North-Russia summit".

The exact scope of the discussions planned for the Singapore summit remains unclear.

"The president has been receiving daily briefings on North Korea from his national security team", Sanders said.

The Democrats' letter on Monday gave the impression they would "demand that the Trump administration's negotiating actions match its negotiating rhetoric", according to Alexandra Bell, a former State Department official during the Obama administration and senior policy director at the Center for Arms Control and Nonproliferation.
