Kim Jong-un sacks top military chiefs before summit with Trump

The Capella in Sentosa

The U.S. and North Korea "are believed to have settled on the Capella Hotel" on the resort island of Sentosa for their meetings, the Washington Post said on Sunday quoting sources.

Improved infrastructure would also help North Korea lift barriers to monetizing its mineral resources, including outdated and underdeveloped transportation networks and a severe energy shortage.

Kim Su Gil, 68, is a four-star Army general who is one of Kim Jong Un's most trusted aides, accompanying him on various military inspections and public events. "They are loyal to Kim Jong Un and no-one else", said Ken Gause, director of the International Affairs Group at CNA, a non-profit research organisation. North Korean state media had previously said Kim Jong Gak was replaced by Army General Kim Su Gil as the director of the army's General Political Bureau, according to Reuters.

Trump revived the Singapore summit on Friday after canceling it a week earlier.

"I am going to visit the DPRK and meet HE Kim Jong Un", Assad said on May 30, North Korea's KCNA news agency reported, using the initials of the country's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

The U.S. official did not identify the three ousted military officials.

With just two weeks out from the planned Trump-Kim Jong Un summit in Singapore, North Korea has made a few significant military changes.

Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera said that while the solution to the North Korean nuclear crisis must be diplomatic, the defense cooperation among the United States and its Asian allies was key to bringing it about.

As Washington pursues a negotiated end to Pyongyang's nuclear program, US officials believe there was some dissent in the military about Kim's negotiations with South Korea and the United States, a complete reversal of the North's pursuit of nuclear weapons and historic hostility.

Other analysts say the measure was to replace the old guard with "economically minded" individuals who could carry out Kim's goal of developing North Korea's impoverished economy.

That would pave the way to tap the North's vast mineral reserves, which could be worth $6 trillion, according to a 2013 estimate by the North Korea Resources Institute in Seoul.

The comments sought to address concern the United States may be rushing to strike a breakthrough in the unprecedented summit between the two leaders.

"We discussed the issue of South Koreans detained in North Korea, and South Korea raised the issue first". "They know to sit there and not get too drunk at the parties. they know how to behave themselves".
