AP PROVIDES ACCESS TO THIS PUBLICLY DISTRIBUTED HANDOUT Then-CIA director Mike Pompeo shakes hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang North Korea

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has said Trump should receive the Nobel Peace Prize, the Republicans' letter noted.

Seoul and Pyongyang have remained technically at war since the 1950s but South Korean President Moon Jae-In and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un agreed at a landmark summit last week to work towards a permanent treaty to replace a 65-year-old armistice agreement.

North Korea's state ideology is called juche (roughly, "self-reliance"), a combination of Marxism-Leninism and worship of Kim Il-sung, founder of North Korea and "eternal president", and his progeny.

Ahead of Kim's subsequent summit with U.S. President Donald Trump, a number of experts believe China wants to secure its involvement in any talks or developments surrounding the Korean Peninsula, the South China Morning Post reported.

"If we maintain frequent meetings and build trust with the United States and receive promises for an end to the war and a non-aggression treaty, then why would be need to live in difficulty by keeping our nuclear weapons?".

South Korea's finance minister said yesterday the government was discussing how to finance possible economic projects with North Korea, although any projects with Pyongyang must first be approved by the global community.

Kane's persistence pays off to keep Salah in his sights
The home side dominated possession and goals from Dele Alli and Harry Kane either side of half-time were enough to seal Spurs' victory.


The audience at a campaign rally Trump headlined over the weekend in MI broke into chants of "Nobel!" when he began talking about North Korea. The former NBA player didn't take full credit for this, but still feels his efforts at basketball diplomacy with North Korea played a significant role in the recent warming of relations.

The Panmunjom truce village in the demilitarized zone between the North and South, where last week's inter-Korean summit was convened, has emerged as a possible venue for the Kim-Trump meeting. If that message is to get through to the U.S., Moon must clearly tell Trump that the issue should not be up for negotiation with Kim.

Both Moon and Kim agreed to cease their audio battle as part of a three-page joint declaration signed by the leaders Friday.

On the highly anticipated summit between Kim and Trump, the real estate mogul-turned-president said Tuesday in the White House that the location and date for the historic meeting would be "announced over the next couple of days".

Kim also seemed to be asking Moon for his opinion on Trump's intentions. "I think there's a good chance of doing it. I think that has resonated to this whole point now". Seoul had also shuttled between Pyongyang and Washington to set up a potential meeting between Kim and Trump, which is expected next month or early June.
