Trump says summit with North Korea's Kim will be in Hanoi

"There is no change in our position that Japan will continue to cooperate with the United States and South Korea, while closely collaborating with the global community, including China and Russian Federation, to implement U.N. Security Council resolutions" imposed on the North for its nuclear and missile programs, the top government spokesman said.

While such a declaration wouldn't imply a legally binding peace treaty, experts say it could create political momentum that would make it easier for North Korea to steer the discussions toward a peace regime and security concessions.

According to the U.S. State Department, special representative Stephen Biegun is still in Pyeongyang to discuss the Kim-Trump summit with his North Korean counterpart Kim Hyok-chol.

"I look forward to seeing Chairman Kim & advancing the cause of peace!" he tweeted.

To obtain successful results from the upcoming summit, it is necessary in working-level talks to discuss details in regard to the North's disclosure of its nuclear and missile development programs, and dismantlement of its nuclear arms as well as verification procedures.

Biegun is expected to return to Seoul later Thursday and meet with top South Korean and Japanese nuclear negotiators in Seoul on Friday and Saturday.

First of all, it has the North Korean embassy. and second, late former North Korean leader Kim Il-sung, who's Kim Jong-un's grandfather, visited the city two times in 1958 and 1964.

A year of mostly fruitless diplomacy has led to serious doubts about Mr. Kim's sincerity and Trump's ability to force North Korea to significantly reduce the threat its nuclear weapons pose to the region and world.

DOCTOR: Trump In ‘Very Good Health’ For Presidency ‘And Beyond’
Conley revealed in a memo that he and a board of specialists evaluated the president for four hours with a series of tests. Jackson, became an Internet sensation past year for his public pronouncement that Trump has " incredibly good genes ".

Some in South Korea hope that Kim will be ready to make meaningful concessions in Vietnam that Trump could then respond to by partially easing the sanctions on the North to allow more inter-Korean cooperation.

Kim Jong-un and Trump first met last June in Singapore, where they signed a vaguely worded document in which Kim pledged to work toward the "denuclearization of the Korean peninsula".

Before travelling to Pyongyang on Wednesday, Mr Biegun said he wanted to achieve some "concrete deliverables".

"North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, will become a great Economic Powerhouse", he wrote.

At the same time, he set out an extensive list of demands that North Korea would have to meet eventually, including full disclosure of its nuclear and missile programs, something Pyongyang has rejected for decades.

They have reportedly renamed the Key Resolve exercise "19-1 Exercise", while considering creating a new name for the Foal Eagle and downsizing it to battalion-level maneuvers to be conducted throughout the year.

Hanoi is a place that was much preferred by the North Korean side.

The worldwide sanctions against North Korea are created to severely limit its import and export abilities, with the aim of putting pressure on the country to give up its nuclear ambitions.
