Korea meeting, but will keep up pressure

The Trump administration on Sunday confirmed that there will be no additional conditions imposed on North Korea before a first-ever meeting of the leaders of the two nations. Trump dispensed with decades of USA foreign policy orthodoxy with his decision, particularly given that the North Korean leader made only a vague offer - conveyed via a South Korean delegation that visited him - to discuss giving up his nuclear weapons program.

Tillerson said several steps would be necessary to agree the location and scope of the talks. He says that it's in the "very early stages". North Korea has said that for it to give up nuclear weapons, the safety of its regime must be guaranteed and the military threat against it must be removed.

Tillerson, who has cut short his first trip to Africa as secretary of state to return to Washington on Tuesday, a day ahead of schedule, did not elaborate.

Trump and Kim have agreed to meet by the end of May, although they have yet to confirm a date or time.

Chinese President Xi Jinping hopes "smooth" talks between North Korea's leader and the presidents of the United States and South Korea can produce progress towards Pyongyang's denuclearization, according to state media.

Asked in a Fox News interview due to air on Monday evening whether there was a real possibility of North Korea denuclearizing, US Vice President Mike Pence said: "We'll see, as the president often says". Kim is evidently willing to suspend nuclear and missile tests for now - a minimal, easily reversed concession, mostly likely made only to buy time to fit a nuclear warhead on an ICBM capable of reaching the U.S.

The Republican president agreed on Thursday to accept an invitation from the North Korean leader to meet by May after months of escalating tensions over Pyongyang's advancing nuclear and missile programmes. "So we're determined to pursue that course", McMaster told reporters after briefing the U.N. Security Council on the development.

Barcelona star wants Neymar back
Philippe Coutinho has insisted that he will be more than happy to have Neymar back at the club. Balague says there is no doubt that both Real Madrid and Neymar want a deal to happen.

"We know that they have responded due to that, and they have pushed this message through the South Koreans to us". China played a key role especially in forging agreement among the parties. Xi said Chung had achieved "positive results" in his visits to North Korea and the United States last week, which led to the diplomatic breakthrough. This summit may save the world from a nuclear disaster.

"Let's be very clear", she said in a statement.

In a January Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, Hirono questioned experts on the Korean Peninsula on the importance of naming an ambassador to South Korea.
