Singapore FM to visit North Korea ahead of Kim-Trump summit

Putin to MEET Kim Jong-un as Russia invites North Korean dictator | Daily Star

Former US basketball player Dennis Rodman will reportedly be in Singapore when Donald Trump meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un next week.

He did say the United States remains committed to the UN sanctions regime against North Korea.

After the meeting, Mr Trump said Kim Jong-un was committed to denuclearisation, and that the letter was "a very nice letter, a very interesting letter".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted that the meeting will be held at Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island. But she said there has been no change in what Trump has described as a "maximum pressure" campaign on the North Korean regime.

"I can tell you the president has been receiving daily briefings on North Korea from his national security team", said Sanders.

"I think at the end of that process, that's the goal, unilateral denuclearization, disarming them and so forth", Kudlow said, noting that he is not directly involved in the talks.

The medallions will depict an "affirmative handshake" between the two leaders, the scheduled date of the summit, and the flags of both countries, the Singapore Mint said in a statement yesterday.

"There have been summits before, they've tended not to go anywhere, so it's a good sign when world leaders are talking to each other, but let's not put all our expectations on one meeting".

The US media, while commenting on the White House confirmation, noted that this "on-again, off-again summit has been a diplomatic rollercoaster and kept everyone on their toes".

Now, Pompeo has told Trump that allowing Bolton to meet with North Korean officials would be "counterproductive", according to CNN. Moscow offers joint economic projects between North and South Korea.

Trump had already confirmed that would be a protracted effort in and of itself, given the size of North Korea's arsenal.
