He then discussed the "prospect of the DPRK-U.S. dialogue and set forth the strategic and tactical issues" to be maintained by the party.

President Trump claimed on Monday that he'll meet with Kim Jong-un, " northkorea's leader, in May or early June, putting a timeline for the historical summit in between the president and the Arab Korean strongman.

Kim's reported remarks drew a mixed response from North Korea watchers in Seoul and Washington. Till three weeks ago, dilemma lingered over the first-ever meeting between Trump and Kim.

The confirmation from Pyongyang directly, rather than from third countries like South Korea, has created more confidence within Trump's administration about the wisdom of holding such a meeting, as US officials make secretive preparations.

It has not been revealed what North Korea is hoping to achieve at the end of the bilateral talks.

"Kim Jong Un is ready", she said after Kim met Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing.

Lt.Gen. Benjamin C. Freakley told Arizona State University (ASU): "It's in the best interests of the United States and the rest of the world to be engaged in a diplomatic and political dialogue with the leadership of North Korea to try to prevent a nuclear or even a conventional war because they have an extremely sizeable military force".

President Trump to Jump White House Correspondents' Supper
I call them novelists". "Now in some cases there's sources, but then they won't do it correctly either". The decision is no surprise given Trump's relationship with the media.


According to the Washington Post quoted an administration official says that the US has confirmed that Kim Jong Un is willing to discuss the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula. The U.S. later heard from other countries including China, where Kim paid a rare visit, that the North was serious about the offer.

"We will meet with them sometime in may or early June", said the US President. "Hopefully, it will be a relationship that's much different than it's been for many, many years".

The North Koreans are pushing to have the meeting in their capital, Pyongyang, CNN reported late last week, citing Trump administration officials, although it is unclear whether the White House would be willing to hold the talks there.

He said he thinks the meeting will be a "very exciting thing for the world".

This undated picture released from North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on August 4, 2016 shows North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un delivering a speech at the 3rd Meeting of KPA Activists in O Jung Hup-led 7th Regiment Title Movement at the April 25 House of Culture in Pyongyang.

But many in Washington seem to have another misguided assumption about those talks, analysts here say.
