Trump floats holding North Korea summit in Peace House near DMZ

Trump floats holding North Korea summit in Peace House near DMZ”

South Korean trust in North Korea has surged since last week's feel-good summit at which their leaders declared an end to hostilities and to work towards denuclearization of the peninsula.

There have been calls for the US President to be considered for a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts following historic talks on Friday where the North and South Korean leaders agreed to formally declare an end to the Korean War after 65 years. "I believe there is".

Kim is ready to discuss Trump's demands and "to lay out a map that will help us achieve that objective", Mr Pompeo added.

"President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize".

According to the New York Times, Kim's concession comes as the dictator agreed to allow both US and South Korean nuclear experts into his country to examine his facilities and testing sites.

North Korea earlier this month announced it had suspended all tests of nuclear devices and intercontinental ballistic missiles and plans to close its nuclear testing ground.

National security adviser John Bolton said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that a decision by North Korea to release the Americans "would be a demonstration of their sincerity" ahead of the still-unscheduled meeting.

Pressed by Fox host Chris Wallace, Bolton added, "We've heard similar things from North Korea before". What we want to see from them is evidence that it's real and not just rhetoric'. "What we need is only peace", Moon told aides, according to a Blue House official who briefed the press.

The summit was a result of the coinciding interests of the two leaders, that is, the North Korean leader feeling threatened with USA economic sanctions and military pressure intensifying against North Korea's nuclear weapons and the South Korean President focusing on South Korea's leading role in issues related to the Korean Peninsula.

Many South Koreans were struck by the live TV images during the summit of a smiling and joking Kim.

"I would never use the word honorable to describe Kim Jong Un", Lankford said on CNN.

President Trump said during a rally in MI: "I think we'll have a meeting over the next three or four weeks".

The North and South Korea had a 30-minute gap in their standard time since August 2015, when the North set its clocks back by half an hour.

The rating agency said despite the shared commitment by the two Koreas to advance the peace process, the path toward a definitive and permanent resolution of inter-Korean tensions is fraught with uncertainties and complexities involving other stakeholders, primarily the USA and China.

"We know the history. We're going to require those steps that demonstrate that denuclearization is going to be achieved".

He added that Kim had promised to invite US and South Korean experts and journalists to watch the closure, in the interests of transparency.
