"Let's be clear, the United States has made zero concessions, but North Korea has made some promises".

In a phone call with Mr. Trump on Friday, Chinese President Xi Jinping said he hoped that the US and North Korea would "start dialogue as soon as possible and strive for positive results", according to Chinese official media.

I'm sure with Trump having our two biggest aircraft carriers loaded and ready along with two nuclear powered submarines off Kim's coast helped in making Kim capitulate which the media doesn't mention either. "The right conditions are stopped nuclear testing".

"Of course, a lot can change between now and then".

North Korea sent a delegation of athletes and cheerleaders and the two countries marched and competed in some events under one flag.

March 2013: Mr Trump lashes out at South Korea, calling the country an "economic competitor" and saying that the USA gets nothing in return for protecting the country. Mr Trump hailed "great progress" in the push to persuade Pyongyang to end its nuclear weapons program. "Lurking behind the smear campaign is a cynical ploy to expand the sphere of pressurizing the DPRK, labeling it a "cyber terrorist", not content with pulling up it over the nuclear and "human rights" issues".

Speaking at the U.N. General Assembly, Trump said "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime".

The meeting would be the first of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting president of the United States.

The appeal of phone VR is simplicity and affordability: Just use a $100-ish set of goggles and your phone, and you're set. It is interesting to note that this will be the fastest that a Galaxy device has been introduced in the Indian market.

Adam Mount, a senior fellow and director of the Defense Posture Project of the Federation of American Scientists, said North Korea could put a reasonable deal on the table that Trump feels unable to accept.

Until now, the United States has dangled the prospect of a face to face bilateral meeting of the leaders as an incentive, at the end of negotiations, but only once the North Koreans have proven their sincerity about disarming. I'm looking forward to bringing more basketball diplomacy to North Korea in the upcoming months. North Korea has no role in the latter and the standard for the former involves them *not* taking certain actions.

But as last month's Winter Olympics drove a rapprochement on the peninsula, Pence travelled to South Korea, rubbing shoulders with Kim's sister, and appearing open to a meeting with North Korean officials - although it was the North Koreans and South Koreans who actually met. "If you do that, it will be the end of you - and your regime".

Similarly, even if the summit results in an agreement in principle for North Korea to denuclearize, clarifying what that means to both sides and what steps are necessary and acceptable to reach that point, will be a long and hard process, and will require detailed negotiations no matter what is decided in principle at high levels. "Risk" was the word repeated most often. "The admin needs to move quickly to change this dynamic". Republic of Korea National Security Advisor Chung Eui-Yong said last night that the two would meet "by May". Cha said the big question is what exactly the US plans to concede in return.

Some Republicans have expressed confidence in Trump's ability to negotiate, however, even as they continue to voice their skepticism that the meeting may be fruitless.

"We feel very confident in where we are", Sanders said during the White House briefing Friday afternoon. "Hopefully, you will give me credit".

The Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee urged President Donald Trump to proceed with caution ahead of a potential summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

"Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!"
