Donald Trump promises he’ll invite Kim Jong-un to United States after talks

Heading into his North Korea summit with characteristic bravado, President Donald Trump said Thursday that "attitude" is more important than preparation as he looks to negotiate an accord with Kim Jong Un to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.

Giuliani told Business Insider on Wednesday he didn't know for certain Kim had begged Trump in this regard, but said it was his "speculation".

"I don't think I have to prepare very much".

"Maybe we'll start with the White House, what do you think?" he said when asked if Kim would be invited to Washington or his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

"We're going to be fine, with respect to Iran", Trump said. They've been preparing for a long time, also. "And we'll know that very quickly".

"The sanctions and the pressure that was put on by the USA and its allies were definitely. key motivating forces that encouraged him (Kim Jong-un) to consider engaging more, and to come out and have this summit", said Nicholas Fang, director of security and global affairs at the Singapore Institute of International Affairs.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters at the White House that Kim was willing to give up its nuclear weapons in line with US demands.

"I think it's a process, " Trump said. "I told him that I. would never do this in Singapore because it is against your rules to protest", he told The Associated Press. "And I am very confident that the president will be fully prepared when he meets with his North Korean counterpart". "It would be wonderful if it were".

That would remove the threat against the United States mainland, while leaving Washington's allies South Korea and Japan still within Pyongyang's reach - a scenario likely to alarm Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in particular. At the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea earlier this year, police dragged him out of an arena after he danced in front of North Korea's cheering squad.

City advance on swoop for Jorginho
Speaking to Calcio Napoli , Santos said: "Chelsea have never had contact with me so I can not talk, they've never called me". Jorginho's agent has confirmed that Napoli have received a fresh offer from Manchester City for his client this summer.

North Korea defends its nuclear and missile programs as a deterrent against what it sees as US aggression. The dramatic shift from a possible military confrontation to a flurry of high-level diplomacy in less than six months was only possible because of Trump's full support, they say.

Rodman has previously claimed he was partly responsible for easing the tension between Trump and the Kim regime.

The meeting next week in Singapore will be the first of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting president of the United States.

This follows after General Kim Yong-chol, a close aide of the North Korean leader, hand-delivered a letter from Kim to the US President.

"We can't step through this over years, but rather need to acknowledge it will take some amount of time, that this doesn't happen instantaneously".

Trump added that sanctions on North Korea remain in place.

The comments raised eyebrows as some anxious belittling Kim could put the summit in jeopardy yet again.

"I will stress that measures to restrict trade would not serve the interests of any country", Abe said before heading to Washington.

Many predict their Panmunjom discussions will last until shortly before the Kim-Trump meeting, the first-ever face-to-face meeting between the leaders of the Korean War foes.
