Kim meeting: What role should China play?

S. Korea's Spy Chief Meets Japanese Foreign Minister to Brief on N. Korea

"North Korea made several promises and we hope that they would stick to those promises and if so the meeting will go on as planned". "I know those are all questions that people are anxious to have answers to".

The South claims the North is willing to discuss denuclearization, but it likely will only do so on terms the US should never accept. Kim may offer to give up his nukes for USA forces' pullout from South Korea and a signed peace treaty.

But the uncertainty still lingers over plans for the first-ever meeting of a sitting United States president and a North Korean leader.

Moreover, it demonstrates that voices like McMaster's that promote preventive war are dealing not in reality but in a reckless fantasy which could all too easily claim the lives of millions, destroy US alliances in Asia, undermine American security, and cause untold economic damage.Bonnie Kristian is a fellow at Defense Priorities, an organization which inform citizens, thought leaders, and policy makers of the importance of a strong, dynamic military.

The South Korean newspaper cited an unidentified senior official in South Korea's presidential office.

The secretary departed for the USA on Monday, cutting his Africa trip short amid speculation it was to prepare for the unprecedented meeting between Trump and Kim. "I think it's going to be very important that those kind of conversations are held quietly through the two parties". After all, it had sent envoys to Pyongyang to explain its stance and to persuade the North to negotiate. The US position remains that it wants North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons programme in exchange for aid and diplomatic incentives. Sherman said that while she did not believe Kim is "in any rush to denuclearize", she was glad the U.S. is entering into talks, even if it just starts with "a meeting".

Trump is widely unpopular in South Korea, according to analysts based there, and vilified in North Korea, just as he has spent months demonizing Pyongyang and threatening it with "fire and fury". Although the Chinese have long insisted that the crux of the North Korea nuclear issue is a dispute between Washington and Pyongyang, they want to continue to exert influence over major policy decisions, and they fear that a U.S.

"Talk is certainly better than war", she said.

President Donald Trump has agreed to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in is set to meet Kim in late April.

"We have, in our hands, the precious opportunity to achieve denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, bring permanent peace, and open the pathway to co-prosperity of South and North Korea.,".

It made no mention of any summit plans, let alone any conditions or statements on whether Kim is seriously mulling abandoning his nuclear weapons. The allies had agreed to delay the drills until after the Winter Paralympics end later this month.

Kim has yet to publicly confirm his invitation to meet with Trump in a bid to defuse a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear programme, and officials in Seoul and Washington say the exact location and timing of any summit remain to be determined.

Tillerson spoke Monday at a news conference in Nigeria.
