Where could Kim Jong Un meet Donald Trump?

Trump agreed on Friday to meet with Kim Jong-un by the end of May and the two Koreas are due to hold their own summit by the end of April

Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo says the US will not make concessions to North Korea before President Trump holds talks with the reclusive country's leader, Kim Jong Un.

Local reaction Friday to news that North Korea's Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump plan to meet in May for nuclear disarmament talks seemed to fall under the same category: surprise, skepticism and a belief it never would have happened a few months ago.

Mr Trump has spoken with both Mr Xi and Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe since Thursday's shock announcement.

He also called for continued cooperation among Japan, South Korea and the US with regard to the nuclear and kidnapping issues going forward.

Kim Jong Un wants to sign a peace treaty after meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump, South Korean media reported, reviving a long-held goal of the North Korean regime. The only major difference now is that North Korea is reportedly researching intercontinental ballistic missiles that can reach the mainland United States with their nuclear payloads.

Chung expressed thanks for China's role at a meeting earlier with China's top diplomat, State Councillor Yang Jiechi.

CBS News senior global affairs contributor and Eurasia Group president Ian Bremmer said Mr. Trump deserves credit for getting Kim to a point where he's apparently willing to discuss denuclearization, yet he warned that the outcome of talks is far from certain.

'I believe they will honour that commitment, ' the president said.

According to a South Korean presidential office source, Suh told Kono that the North Korean leader made no mention of the abduction issue. Carranza said the meeting place will be a crucial factor. "I think we're going to be wanting to find a nice neutral site where both parties will feel confident with the site for this meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un", Tillerson said, "and so my view is we ought to find someplace that's neutral".

And if they come to fruition, they could have some serious effects on the markets, specifically USA indices and the dollar yen.

North Korea has a history of deceit and can not be trusted despite claims it wants to talk peace, says a national security analyst.

Trump last week agreed to meet with Kim by the end of May to discuss Pyongyang's denuclearisation - which it put on the table in exchange for security guarantees - and predicted the talks would be a "tremendous success".

Deputy White House spokesperson Raj Shah said: 'This potential meeting has been agreed to, there are no additional conditions being stipulated, but, again they - they cannot engage in missile testing, they cannot engage in nuclear testing and they can't publicly object to the U.S.

The South Korean leader might offer to reopen the Kaesong industrial center, which was closed after a North Korean nuclear test in 2016.
