U.S. cites 'real progress' toward Trump-Kim summit meeting

South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha will meet a US delegation on Friday to discuss its recent talks with North Korea over a possible Washington-Pyongyang summit, her office said.

"We're meeting with the chairman on June 12th", said Trump, accompanied by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, afterward.

"It's really a get-to-know-you kind of a situation", Trump said.

SEOUL - South Korean shares ended higher Friday, led by gains made by heavyweight bio and auto stocks, analysts said. But he tamped down expectations that one meeting will be enough to solve all the problems between the two nations.

He adds, "We have seen history repeat, where North Korea would declare to denuclearize, thereby portraying itself as conciliatory and forthcoming, only to turn around to void all global efforts towards peace".

TRUMP: I think it's going to be a process that we deserve to have. "Kim Jong Un", KCNA cited Assad as saying during a meeting with North Korean Ambassador Mun Jong Nam.

Many analysts are skeptical North Korea will ever agree to give up its nuclear weapons, which Kim sees as a guarantee of security for his country. A letter being delivered to me from Kim Jong Un. The two are expected to meet in Singapore in less than two weeks, the same date they had originally agreed to. But minutes earlier he had described the note as "a very interesting letter", and teased journalists about revealing its contents.

On June 5, Bungie offered Destiny fans a first look at the game's September expansion, Destiny 2: Forsaken . It marks version 2.0 of Destiny 2 and begins the second year of its run.

On Saturday, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), a coalition of non-governmental organizations worldwide, volunteered to pay the tab.

"Hey, wouldn't it be wonderful if we walked out and everything was settled all of a sudden from sitting down for a couple of hours", Trump said. "If we believe that, we will never be able to negotiate with them and make peace with them".

The president has not denied speaking to the North Korean leader, and tantalized reporters with suggestions that he has done so. Likewise, Kim's letter to Trump would have been a reciprocal response to Trump's own letter to Kim on May 24 that temporarily shelved the highly anticipated meeting, Yang said. But I told him, to be honest with you, look, we have sanctions on; they're very powerful sanctions.

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 worldwide legitimacy a summit with Trump would provide.

U.S. President Donald Trump confirmed on Friday that his summit with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un would go ahead as originally planned on June 12 in Singapore, after unprecedented Oval Office talks with a top envoy from Pyongyang. "And I told them today, 'Take your time, we can go fast, we can go slowly, ' but I think they'd like to see something happen".

There may well be others, he added.
