Percent of Americans Approve of President Trump Meeting North Korea's Kim Jong

Melania Trump and Donald

On Friday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the United States was willing to contribute to rebuilding North Korea.

The secretary of state addressed concerns that the USA and North Korea have different objectives in mind when considering denuclearization, prompting doubts that the Kim regime will actually be willing to give up the weapons it has already built.

KELEMEN: Well, at least for the U.S.it's, you know, really a deal - what Pompeo said - like none other before it.

"I think it's a positive step in the right direction that the three American prisoners were released", Nauert, also the acting Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy, told CNN "New Day" co-host Chris Cuomo. "We're very clear that the sanctions remain in place until and unless we see visible meaningful action taken by North Korea on the denuclearization track".

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his wife attended that concert along with top officials from North Korea, including Kim's sister and closest aide, Kim Yo Jong.

During Pompeo's visit to North Korea, he promised Kim economic help from the U.S.to bolster his country's economy.

KELLY: Talk to me a little bit about the plans for the Trump-Kim summit.

Banks says it remains to be seen whether the talks with Kim Jong Un will produce a deal and what it will involve.

Juve win seventh successive Serie A title
Despite the impressive result, Crotone slipped into the relegation zone, below Spal on their head-to-head record. Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero went over to urge the fans to stop but was also insulted by the ultras.

The summit will occur in Singapore on June 12.

In other words, there's nothing new about North Korean talk of denuclearization - or the release of the three US prisoners held in Pyongyang (spare a thought for USA student/prisoner Otto Warmbier, who was returned in a coma and died).

Mike Pompeo made the announcement at a joint news conference with South Korean foreign minister Kang Kyung-wha.

Instead, peace talks between North and South Korea started in January of this year, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in credited the USA president with having "made a huge contribution to make inter-Korean talks happen".

Bolton said the United States is pursuing a standard of "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization" heading into negotiations. North Korea is expected to demand some form of relief nearly immediately.

In a meeting this week attended also by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo, Moon and Chinese envoy Li Keqiang issued a statement demanding that "the worldwide community, including the United States, must actively take part in ensuring a bright future for North Korea through a security guarantee and support for its economic development".

Moon, the son of North Korean war refugees, has vowed to build on the legacies of late liberal Presidents Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun and their so-called "Sunshine Policy", which Moon had a hand in building. He added that he told Kim that the US government was prepared to provide him with "assurances", without elaborating. Given North Korea's extensive and hidden nuclear program, complete verification may be impossible to achieve.
