"I think we can presume that North Korea made more demands to Singapore than the United States did in terms of security".

Mike Pompeo said Thursday that Kim Jong-un had personally assured him that, "he is prepared to denuclearize".

"You know, President Trump has talked about a Nobel Peace Prize, he certainly isn't going to get it. Kim Jong-un isn't going to get it. Moon Jae-in, who knows?", Kristof shrugs. It's never going to be there again. "I don't know why those two famous guys come here", she said. "But I can not imagine they'll reach a peace treaty" in Singapore, Hill said. "I think within the first minute, I'll know", Trump said of the scheduled Tuesday meeting in Singapore.

"I personally don't believe in further shutting out North Korea from the rest of the world, and feel cultural exchange and dialogue - even through something as basic as tourism - is extremely important in better understanding each other", he said. It's like the way they say you know if you're going to like somebody in the first 5 seconds. "I think it would be well received and I think [Kim] would look at it very favorably".

Saying that the North Korean leader has "an opportunity to do something great for his people", Trump insisted that his team was going into the first-ever meeting between the two countries at this level with a "positive spirit".

Servicepersons of the Ministry of People's Security met on August 10, 2017 to express full support for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) government statement.

"So far so good", Trump said. He's also specifically questioned the need for so many troops in South Korea, asking in 2016, "What are we getting for this?" And we appreciate everything that's going on.

It may be the strangest feeling in decades to descend on the Korean Peninsula - a wave of optimism, and not always of the cautious variety, when it comes to North Korea and its nuclear bombs.

It will be the first summit of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting US president. After a gathering marked by both acrimony and banter, The US President left prematurely for Singapore and a possibly more momentous meeting - with North Korea's Kim Jong-un.

President Trump confirmed human rights was not mentioned in his meeting with the North Korean delegation at the White House last week.

On the state of global trade: "From the standpoint of trade and jobs and being fair to companies, we are really, I think, committed".

Trump and Kim can also silence skeptics in Washington, Seoul and Tokyo, Yun wrote, by producing "a clear timeline for the ultimate goal: the disablement and dismantlement of all North Korean nuclear and ICBM facilities, material and devices".

Beijing, the North's only major ally and key economic lifeline, is also ready for a peace agreement, according to William Overholt, an Asia expert and senior fellow at Harvard University, and could "come down very hard on the North" if Pyongyang refuses to abandon its nukes despite potential US offers of a peace treaty, security guarantees, diplomatic recognition and economic assistance.
