Giuliani: By the way, Kim to release three Americans today

Reuters

The American official said there was no immediate confirmation on a change in the conditions under which the Americans are being held.

South Korea said on Wednesday the issue of US troops stationed in the South is unrelated to any future peace treaty with North Korea and that American forces should stay even if such an agreement is signed.

"Ambassadors Bolton and Chung will also discuss President Donald J. Trump's upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un". "We are working to see U.S. citizens who are detained in North Korea come home as soon as possible", she said.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo - who secretly visited North Korea last month when he was still head of the Central Intelligence Agency - is said to have discussed the plight of the three Americans with North Korean leader Kim. Trump said he would maintain pressure on Pyongyang through sanctions ahead of his own meeting with Kim.

South Koreans were found to be generally hopeful about a coming Trump-Kim meeting, with 30 percent expecting the summit between the United States and North Korea to be very successful and 56 percent saying it would be somewhat successful.

After the meeting, Seoul and Pyongyang confirmed in a joint declaration a common goal of complete denuclearization and agreed to push for multilateral talks to turn the current armistice agreement into a peace treaty.

Kim Hak-song who taught agricultural technology in Pyongyang was also arrested for "hostile activities" at the railway station while waiting for a train bound for his home in Dandong, China in May previous year.

Earlier this week, the U.S. president hinted that the exact date and location of his upcoming meeting with the North Korean leader could be announced soon.

There's been rapid movement on the peninsula, especially with the USA expected to hold talks with the DPRK within weeks. He had been arrested in January 2016 and accused of stealing a propaganda poster and was sentenced to 15 years in prison with hard labor.

The second American is Kim Hak Song who worked in agricultural development at an experimental farm run by the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology.
