Forcing North Korean nuclear retreat would mean lasting legacy for Trump

"If the result of this meeting is not verifiable concrete steps to denuclearization, than it will be a failure, and then the president is going to be under tremendous pressure because that new red line has been set to act", Gardner said.

Warren's remarks came one day after South Korean officials announced that Trump has agreed to meet with Kim by May.

Trump, who has ramped up economic sanctions on North Korea to force it to negotiate on giving up its nukes, has threatened the pariah nation with "fire and fury" if its threats against the United States and its allies continued. "However, I would strongly urge the administration to remember that Kim Jong Un, like his father and grandfather before him, have long sought a visit from the President of the United States to enhance their own prestige and justify their risky pursuit of nuclear weapons".

"I worry that he might be falling into a trap", Richardson said of Trump, adding he did not expect the first such summit to produce much but that Kim frequently has been underestimated.

The White House said that Trump had accepted the invitation, and Chung Eui-yong, a South Korean official who conveyed it, told reporters that the President would meet with Kim within two months.

"The president will not have the meeting without seeing concrete steps and concrete actions take place by North Korea, so the president will actually be getting something", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a news briefing.

Doctor Fumiaki Kubo, professor of American Government and History at the University of Tokyo, says that the direction of the United States' national security policy has always been a serious concern for Japan.

"I think we should all welcome diplomacy over fire and fury, I think that's right", Valerie Jarrett, a former senior adviser to Obama, said on "The View" Friday.

"The secretary being out of the loop would fit a pattern of an erratic foreign policy that lacks process and rigor", he added.

During President Barack Obama's administration, North Korean officials were also seeking a breakthrough with the United States, and were disappointed when American officials offered no diplomatic concessions, former USA director of national intelligence, James Clapper, has said.

Messer also said that meaningful talks would be more progress than the nation saw during the entire Obama Administration. For the U.S.it refers to North Korea giving up its nukes; for North Korea it also means removing the threat of American forces in South Korea and the nuclear deterrent with which the US protects its allies in the region.

Kim will get more time to continue developing nuclear weapons behind a shroud of secrecy - though he has promised, for now, to cease tests and stop his missile launches. But the senior fellow for the Arms Control and Non-Proliferation Initiative said he has some reservations on the terms of such a summit. "I would hope that President Trump keeps the best interests of the American people, our allies in the region and the more than 23,000 United States troops stationed in South Korea in mind when engaging with Kim Jong-un and his supporters".

"Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze", Trump tweeted Friday. "We can pursue more diplomacy, as we keep applying pressure ounce by ounce", the Republican lawmaker said Friday.

No serving American president has ever met with a North Korean leader.

It could take weeks for details of the meeting to be negotiated.
