Korea rhetoric change due to Kim's "good faith": White House

NKorean delegation visits China – report

Investors are flooding into the property market in Dandong, hoping to obtain early market share after the historic inter-Korea summit last month opened the prospect of a rapid improvement in relations between North Korea and the rest of the world.

Kim, who picked Beijing to make his maiden official trip overseas in March, has also invited Xi to visit North Korea.

The meeting will mark the first high-level contact between the two Koreas since the landmark summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae In at Panmunjeom on April 27.

Whether it be sitting down with the leaders of Mexico, Canada, China and Japan to negotiate fairer deals for American workers and farmers, traveling to Europe to put real and meaningful preconditions for the continued use of USA assistance dollars, dealing with the dysfunctional United Nations, or most recently using both the carrot and stick in dealing with North Korea and Iran, the President is changing America's role in worldwide affairs for the better.

Tough negotiations. They were a staple of President Trump's time as an executive and businessman and they have followed him all the way to the White House. But our options are not good - fundamentally because North Korea is already a nuclear power, even though we've refused to give that fact our blessing. "Clearly, the ballistic missiles program, as with Iran, with the intention of being a delivery system for nuclear weapons - that's gotta go".

"He'll probably watch this show at some point", the secretary told "Fox News Sunday".

That would put the United States and North Korea back to square one, but this time without the possibility of talking to pull them back from the brink of nuclear war.

Narang said that more likely, Kim and Trump will partake in a photo shoot with handshakes and kind words. Both leaders pledged to work towards denuclearizing the Korean peninsula and reaching an eventual peace deal.

Kang and Li met secretly in Shenyang right after the regime's first nuclear test. Li reportedly complained that the North violated regime founder Kim Il-sung's last wish for denuclearization by conducting the test.

During Xi and Kim's meeting in Dalian, China, on May 7 and 8, Kim sounded Xi out regarding the possibility that North Korea could receive economic support from China during the denuclearization process, according to the source.

"The Americans have a real problem here because they have raised expectations about the summit, and they continue to do so", he said.

North Korea has kept busy with political meetings in China.
