Trump and Kim may meet but no miracle can be expected

Putin-George W. Bush

"He commends the leadership and vision of all concerned and reiterates his support for all efforts towards peaceful denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula in accordance with relevant Security Council resolutions", United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters.

"In addition, some experts point out that the North Koreans have decades of experience with various states, while the Trump administration is "new to the game".

In any case, North Korea has never said that they will denuclearize but there are hundreds of statements made by Korean leaders that have stated that come what may they will never give up their nuclear deterrent.

Some politicians and foreign policy experts voiced scepticism about agreeing to a summit without preparations by lower-level officials, particularly given the lack of trust between the two sides.

Although Trump nearly immediately accepted the offer to hold a meeting in May, the White House on Friday tried to tone down the hype and said that the meeting would not take place without "concrete actions" by Pyongyang that prove its will to abandon nuclear arms. He said it was the strongest indication to date of Kim's "not just willingness but really his desire for talks.' Tillerson said Trump made the decision "himself" after determining the time was right for "talks" - but not formal negotiations".

Bannon joins Le Pen at Front National Congress
The two have since fallen out, and the elder Le Pen was expelled from the party in 2015 over inflammatory remarks. In a TV interview, he said nobody believes in the National Front anymore - not even Marine Le Pen .

It is vital to carefully assess North Korea's real intent, thoroughly prepare a strategy and make other arrangements to force the country to abandon its nuclear and missile programs.

There has been limited reaction from Kim's regime, but South Korean President Moon Jae-in said news of the summit - announced by his national security advisor on a visit to Washington - was "like a miracle".

"(The North Koreans) are saying the right things and we're going to listen to them at the table and we're going to see where this leads", the official said.

Trump also tweeted on Saturday: "Spoke to Prime Minister Abe of Japan, who is very enthusiastic about talks with North Korea". Trump asked Chung about a recent meeting with the North Korean dictator. "It's a negotiation with an unpredictable leader who has at least 20 nuclear weapons and who threatens the United States".

The Citizen reported, the flu virus is constantly changing its outer coat to avoid detection by the human body's immune system. Flu symptoms include a fever of 102 degrees or higher, a dry or hacking cough, severe body aches, and chills.

It is welcome news that two of the world's most bombastic leaders will sit down to talk seriously about one of the globe's most perilous standoffs. No sitting USA president has ever met with a North Korean leader. North Korea, though, has yet to provide more details.

The #north korean leader Kim Jong, is a very shrewd man and we do not know what the background to his change of heart could be.

They explained it was their "determination that the USA should be tamed with fire and let us take our hand closer to the "trigger" for taking the toughest countermeasure".

In the past, the ultimate success of a summit relied on the diplomatic spade work that the Trump administration disdains. And the North has made a habit of reaching out after raising fears during previous crises, with offers of dialogue meant to win aid and concessions. The North has also, according to the USA, repeatedly cheated on past nuclear deals.

In the nuclear crisis in the early 1990s, the then USA administration of President Bill Clinton looked into the use of force, a move that contributed to Pyongyang coming to the negotiating table and the conclusion of the Agreed Framework between the two countries.
