As it was reported earlier, Trump's meeting with Kim Jong-un is scheduled for the end of May - early June.

President Donald Trump will meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12, Trump announced Thursday, hours after suggesting that the release of three Americans held in the North heralded a potential breakthrough toward denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula. "North Korea summit to be an opportunity for moving forward on the nuclear and missile issue as well as on the abduction issue, which is of the greatest importance".

He also stepped across the border into South Korea during a historic meeting with President Moon Jae-in in April, making him the first Northern leader to set foot in the South since the Korean War ceasefire in 1953. "All I'll say is that the meeting has been agreed to, but obviously it could be halted for any number of reasons", Shah said with a note of caution to the North Koreans.

But for Mr Trump and Kim, Singapore is a convenient venue precisely because it "doesn't have the historical or political baggage", said Sarah Teo, an associate research fellow at RSIS's regional security architecture programme.

"As long as relevant parties eliminate the hostile policy and security threats against North Korea, Pyongyang does not need to have nuclear weapons, and denuclearization is achievable", said Kim, according to the Chinese statement.

'Informal' meet with Putin
The two leaders would also discuss their respective national developmental priorities and bilateral matters, the ministry added. Modi will meet Putin for the BRICS summit in South Africa and again in Argentina for the G-20 summit.

North Korea's former spy chief Kim Yong Chul, director of the country's United Front Department, boasted in a toast to Pompeo over lunch in Pyongyang on Wednesday that North Korea had "perfected" it nuclear capability. "They can ensure both the President's and Kim Jong-un's security, as well as provide neutrality", he added.

Three Korean-Americans now are imprisoned in North Korea. We'll hold them to those steps.

It is possible that leaders from South Korea and China could also be present in Singapore at that time, she added.

Separately, Ms Victoria Coates, senior director for worldwide negotiations at the National Security Council, told journalists that Singapore was convenient, and "it is a media hub for Asia".

Contrasting the wealth of South Korea to the poverty and deprivation of the North, Pompeo said the Trump administration is willing to provide assistance to North Korea if Kim meets USA demands to forfeit its nuclear weapons.

After the end of the Korean war in 1953 the South, an ally of the United States, embraced a capitalist philosophy.

A new CNN poll shows that after rattling the nation and the world a year ago by threatening to wipe North Korea off the map, his turn to diplomacy is winning increasing public approval.

Pompeo's latest trip to North Korea came just weeks after he met with Kim.

But it also raises the tantalising possibility that a successful outcome to the summit and a dominant showing overseas could begin to lift the President's overall approval rating a little ahead of midterm elections in November, it added.
