North Korea's release of three American detainees offers some hope for the relatives of hundreds of South Koreans abducted over the years by the North.

Singapore has pushed itself as a neutral actor in global affairs.

"If Chairman Kim chooses the right path, there is a future brimming with peace and prosperity" for North Korea and its people, Pompeo said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shake hands at the Workers' Party of Korea headquarters in Pyongyang on May 9, 2018.

"Kim Jong-un and North Korean diplomats directly state that this process is quite lengthy and requires security guarantees for North Korean statehood", Lobov said.

Abe has placed priority on resolving the abduction issue.

He said past efforts to denuclearize North Korea had failed because of hasty rewards and the same mistakes should not be repeated. It's unclear how many are alive. Add North Korea as an interest to stay up to date on the latest North Korea news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

North Korea's official name and flag appear on the ageing Soviet-made aircraft, which first emerged four years ago and has carried Kim on various trips across his country in the past.

The regime did not have much incentive to surrender its arsenal, even before this week.

Everything about that choice of words reinforces the near-consensus among North Korea watchers that Pyongyang's aim at the summit is to gain USA acknowledgement that it is a nuclear weapons power, and to be treated as such. He said he last heard in 2016 that his father was still alive.

Iran on the other hand, has accused U.S. of imposing many other secondary sanctions which violate the deal terms. With shifting agendas and political equations, there has been increasing division within OPEC lately.


"Singapore has been a great friend to the USA but also Singapore has carefully worked to be a friend to all, which has earned it trust in capitals around the world", he said.

Japanese public broadcaster NHK had shown images of two North Korean aircraft taxiing at Dalian's airport, one an Air Koryo (North Korea's state-owned airline) plane and another carrying a North Korean emblem.

Asked about the possibility of a Japan-US summit, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, the top government spokesman, told a press conference Friday that Japan aims to convey its stance and throw its support behind the United States.

The praise Trump showered on the "excellent" Kim, who has conducted six nuclear tests, contrasted with the vitriol he poured on Iran which by all accounts (including those of United States administration officials) had been sticking to the deal it struck with major powers in 2015 to keep its nuclear activities peaceful and small-scale.

The group also wants the release of all political dissidents in North Korea.

Of the 516 South Koreans in the North, 457 of them were fishermen, according to the Unification Ministry. "Also, due to diplomatic and business ties, it is a place where the North Koreans would feel comfortable meeting", he said.

Some observers are concerned that South Korea's desire to build peaceful ties with the North may distance it over time from the USA policy of seeking nuclear disarmament at any cost. During the talks, the sides agreed to seek the Korean Peninsula's full denuclearization and formally put an end to the Korean war of 1950-1953 that ended with the signing of a truce treaty.

"While most of the prisoners of war would be dead by now, numerous post-war abductees are likely alive", Choi said. We want to get peace.

It's more likely that Kim will put forward the wording he used in China this week promising "phased" measures created to "eventually" achieve denuclearization. "Me, I had to do a lot of labor, but when I got sick, I was also treated by them".
