North Koreans to deliver letter to Trump

Kim Jong Un is reportedly offering to open an American burger chain in North Korea as a Secretary of State Pompeo Meets With North Korean General to Iron Out Summit

Upon arrival, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly ushered the North Koreans into the Oval Office to meet the president.

Trump recently cancelled the meeting in response to a strongly-worded statement from Pyongyang directed at his administration.

North Korean officials said Kim Yong Chol was expected to return to Pyongyang shortly.

During the visit, Lavrov called for North Korea sanctions to be lifted and urged the state to delay destroying nuclear weapons until they were, saying it can not be completed in one go.

In a letter to Kim last Thursday cancelling the summit, Trump accused North Korea of "open hostility", but urged Kim to "call me or write" if he had a change of heart. On Thursday, Kim met with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who also attended the meeting at the White House.

Kim Yong Chol arrived in Washington from NY, where he met with Pompeo on preparations for the planned June 12 encounter between the USA and North Korean leaders in Singapore.

North Korea's flurry of diplomatic activity following an increase in nuclear weapons and missile tests in 2017 suggests that Kim is eager for sanctions relief to build his economy and for the global legitimacy a summit with Trump would provide.

Trump cautioned on Thursday that while he hopes a planned summit in Singapore on June 12 between the US and North Korea is still in the cards, he wants it to be a "meaningful" meeting.

U.S. officials with knowledge of the letter's contents said it did not make any noteworthy threats or concessions, and was seen as a positive step, according to multiple news reports. "And we talked about sanctions", he said.

She also urged her critics to be fair, adding: "Please don't compare me2 other people who have said frightful things". Barr later apologised for what she called a "joke".


He said he thinks that North Korea is willing to denuclearize, and he said he and Kim also discussed the possibility of formally ending the Korean War.

Song Young-moo says, "Just because we have been tricked by North Korea in the past doesn't guarantee that we will be tricked in the future".

Mr Trump said it was "a very interesting letter and at some point it may be appropriate" to share it.

There had been speculation in the South Korean media that Gen. Kim would be carrying a letter for Mr. Trump to respond to the one the president sent to the North Korean leader last week.

Signalling a cooling in the tensions between the two countries, Trump said: "I'm not going to put them on until such time as the talks break down".

"I think it's probably going to be a very successful, ultimately a successful process", he told reporters. "We're going to start a process".

"If it takes place on June 12, we're gonna be prepared", she told reporters aboard Air Force One Tuesday as Trump flew to Nashville, Tennessee, for a rally. "I said, 'Would I do that when we're talking so nicely?'"

North Korea is estimated to have more than a dozen nuclear weapons.

"South Koreans may be eating well and have more material things, but that is only because they are depending on the American imperialists, currying favor with them and getting their leftovers", Ms. Kim said, describing a typical North Korean line.
