Kim summit on the line as South Korea's Moon visits White House

North Korea summit: Pence warns Kim Jong-un not to 'play Trump' Pence: North Korea will end like Libya only if 'Kim Jong Un doesn't make a deal'

This is on the country's east coast and as you can see back over here this is a massive and modern airport.

Foreign news media outlets heading to the North include Sky News from the UK, CNN from the US, CCTV from China and RT from Russian Federation. The other attacked National Security Advisor John Bolton and his call for a Libya-model of denuclearization, saying that if the U.S.is trying to force North Korea's hand in "unilateral" denuclearization, the country, "will...reconsider our proceeding to the D.P.R.K. -U.S. summit".

While North Korea has been willing to discuss denuclearization, Pyongyang has not yet said it will agree to do so in Singapore, and, most importantly, it has always spoken of the denuclearization of the entire Korean Peninsula.

The South Korean journalists were excluded because Pyongyang has cut off high-level contact with Seoul to protest an exercise with the US military.

The DPRK Ministry of Foreign Affairs earlier this month announced Pyongyang would host worldwide journalists for the dismantling of its northern nuclear test ground, slated to take place sometime between Wednesday and Friday depending on the weather conditions. "Moon Jae-in can't afford failure here'".

Despite the threats published in North Korea's state news agency, Trump has said plans for the summit are moving full-steam and that his administration has not received any threats issued directly from Pyongyang.

Won Jong-hyok, a Beijing correspondent for North Korea's state-run Rodong Sinmun, appeared at the airport to check on foreign journalists leaving for North Korea and expressed his regret.

Skepticism about the North's intentions have mounted in recent weeks after Kim's government pulled out of planned peace talks with the South last week, objecting to long-scheduled joint military exercises between USA and South Korean forces. "We hope that the North Koreans are going to be transparent like they say they are and they are going to show us the nuclear test site and the dismantlement".

The North's snubbing of South Korean journalists also comes ahead of President Moon Jae-in's summit with U.S. President Trump on Tuesday in Washington.

One source onboard, however, told NK News that its true destination was Wonsan's Kalma International Airport, however, with the journalists set to then travel to the nuclear test ground at Punggye-ri by train.

North Korea could build a new site if it decides it needs more testing or could dismantle the tunnels into Punggye-ri's Mount Mantap in a reversible manner.

Foreign journalists covering the event said that they did not have to pay a hefty fee of $10,000 per visa on top of flight fees, as earlier reported. But, on the whole, polls do suggest a cautious optimism will remain among South Koreans.

Apart from the IAEA, the CTBTO can play a positive role in the verification of North Korea's nuclear program, but it is not clear whether these organizations would be allowed to participate in the process.

Even as teams of advance staffers survey ornate hotel ballrooms in Singapore for the June 12 encounter, some of the President's advisers privately say the chances of the talks occurring grew slimmer after North Korea adopted a harsher tone toward the United States last week and raised questions about Kim's commitment to, and definition of, denuclearization.

Trump said North Korea would never be overthrown by western powers, as Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was in 2011, if it agreed to give up its nuclear weapons. He recently withdrew the USA from the worldwide Iran-nuclear deal - without outlining a path forward with his allies.

Trump surprised his guests, his own aides and the world by summarily accepting the meeting, seeing an opportunity to "do a deal" and avoid military confrontation.

"It would be a great mistake for Kim Jong Un to think he could play Donald Trump", Pence said according to excerpts of an interview made available by Fox. "So the North is tying any improvement in inter-Korean relations to the success of the North Korea-US summit", said Ko Myong-hyun, a research fellow at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies.
