Trump to meet Kim on June 12 in Singapore

Sheri EvansMay 13, 2018

Still, Kim's agreement to travel so far from the safety of Pyongyang - the farthest he's ever been as leader- could be seen as a concession by North Korea. They seem to be in good health.

On Thursday, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence praised Kim Jong Un for making moves toward peace, but expressed caution.

She said President Donald Trump also looked into the truce village of Panmunjom on the Korean Peninsula as a possible venue.

"A lot of very good things have happened", Trump said as he greeted the former prisoners at Joint Base Andrews early Thursday morning.

"Very exciting", the President exclaimed.

The summit, which has been in the works since Trump accepted Kim's invitation to meet in March 2018, will be the first-ever meeting between a sitting U.S. president and North Korean leader. "Maybe it will [work out], maybe it won't".

Mr Trump announced the mission just minutes before Mr Pompeo arrived in Japan to refuel before flying on to Pyongyang, and as the President declared he was withdrawing from a landmark nuclear deal with another bitter United States adversary, Iran. This is a special night for these three really great people, " Trump said at the Air Force Base after he and his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, went there at 2 a.m., their togetherness also countering media speculations about the state of their relationship.

Trump has marked the men's arrival as a major milestone ahead of his upcoming historic summit with Kim.

Trump's announcement came just hours after three Americans who had been held prisoner in North Korea arrived at a USA military base outside Washington, having been released by Kim.

Trump is expected to push North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons at the meeting in exchange for security guarantees and the removal of stifling economic sanctions.

Pompeo said he had a "good" conversation with North Koreans and did his best to convey the U.S. message to them.

South Korea said it had high hopes for the summit.

Since Trump announced plans to hold a summit with Kim, questions have been raised continually about whether the two leaders have the same objective in mind when they speak about "denuclearization". President Trump will continue the significant progress his Administration has already made in order to achieve this goal.

They also agreed to pursue three-way talks involving the two Koreas and the USA, or four-way talks involving the two Koreas, the U.S. and China, with a view to declaring an end to the war and establishing a permanent and solid peace regime.
