Kim Jong-un Has to Take Foreign Plane to Summit

US President Donald Trump is due to meet Kim on June 12 in Singapore for a summit called to press Pyongyang to end its nuclear and long-range missile programmes.

The Hong Kong-based impersonator, who goes by the name Howard X, has gained worldwide attention for his impressions of the North Korean leader in recent months.

"Making it clear to China that their continued protection of North Korea was beginning to undermine American security interests and that we would increasingly have to take steps to protect our interests in a way that might undermine China's own security was a strategy that we believed was going to bear fruit", Wolfsthal said during an interview with VOA Korean in February 2017, shortly after his departure from the Obama administration.

Speaking alongside Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Mr Trump said he "certainly" would extend an invite to the dictator if they are able to make a deal next week.

Mr Giuliani said: "That is my interpretation".

Pompeo said he was confident the president would be fully prepared and dismissed reports of division inside Trump's foreign policy team over the decision to embrace the meeting with Kim.

The efforts gives them hope that they can find real success where past efforts have fallen short, he added. "I just don't think it's nice, going in under those circumstances", Trump said. "We've seen how many inadequate agreements have been struck in the past. The president recognizes that North Korea has great potential and he looks forward to a day when sanctions on the DPRK can begin to be removed". They've been preparing for a long time, also.

"Until we achieve our goals, the measures that the world, alongside the USA has put on the regime will remain".

"I think he wants to go big or go home", said Michael Allen, a former National Security Council official under Republican President George W. Bush.

The US President said he's hopeful that the Singapore summit will lead to a "bright new future" for North Korea and the world. Trump said Abe talked about the abductees "long and hard and passionately, and I will follow his wishes and we will be discussing that with North Korea absolutely". "It has supporting infrastructure that is also of concern", he said.

"I don't think I have to prepare very much".

"It's why the two leaders are meeting. So this isn't a question of preparation; it's a question of whether or not people want it to happen, and we'll know that very quickly". I don't think I have to prepare very much.

"He understands that we can't do it the way we've done it before - that this has to be big and bold, and we have to agree to making major changes", the top USA diplomat told reporters at the White House. We can not take sanctions off.

Pompeo emphasized, though, the US will guarantee North Korea's security as well as political normalization, . if it follows through on its pledge to denuclearize. Leading the American efforts in negotiating with the North Koreans, he said the U.S. is making progress, inch by inch.

Trump, who coined the term "maximum pressure" to describe US sanctions against the North, said they would be an indicator for the success or failure of the talks.
