Trump said to be 'actively preparing' for North Korea summit

"President Trump and I believe Chairman Kim is the kind of leader who can make those kind of decisions, and in the coming weeks and months, we will have the opportunity to test whether or not this is the case".

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is not planning on giving up his nuclear weapons any time soon but is open to the idea of opening a Western hamburger franchise, according to United States officials familiar with a CIA intelligence report.

President Donald Trump has confirmed that top North Korean official Kim Yong Chol is heading to NY for talks on an upcoming summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. But history shows that such trips don't always lead to summits: The high hopes raised by a similar North Korean mission 18 years ago ended up dashed.

Anchor: Working-level discussions between North Korea and the United States are under way in Korea and Singapore in advance of a possible summit.

"Kim Young Chol, the Vice Chairman of North Korea, heading now to NY".

North Korea vowed to continue to pursue that goal and took the opportunity to paint itself once again as a reasonable, peace-loving nation, extending an olive branch to the U.S.

North Korea has rejected USA demands that it unilaterally abandon its nuclear program.

Trump successfully negotiated North Korea's release of three American hostages earlier this month.

Trump, meanwhile, "continues to actively prepare" for an "expected summit" with Kim Jong-un in Singapore on June 12, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

"Since the president's May 24th letter to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the North Koreans have been engaging", Sanders said. Since then, he has suggested the summit could be back on, and Kim Yong Chol's trip to the US seems to imply that preparations for a meeting could be in the final stages. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is also headed to NY.

Sung Kim, who was born in South Korea and was a key diplomat in the 2005 six-party talks, served as ambassador to South Korea from 2011 to 2014, then became special representative for North Korea policy, a position that Yun later took over and that is now vacant.

But aides nearly immediately suggested the meeting could still get back on track.

He continued, "You have the meeting". Any visit to the United States would indicate a waiver was granted. "And if President Trump's brand - and that's the right word here, going into this meeting - demands something like that, this is going to end up in a very bad place". But there are lingering doubts on whether Kim will every fully relinquish his nuclear arsenal, which he may see as his only guarantee of survival in a region surrounded by enemies. He held a welcome-home ceremony in the middle of the night at Joint Base Andrews for the three Americans in yet another sign of improving relations between the US and North Korea that past presidents were unable to achieve. Beijing backs the North's proposal for a phased and synchronized denuclearization process, while the United States insists on a comprehensive one-shot deal in which North Korea eliminates its nukes first and receives rewards later.
