Sean Kim can't wait for the summit.

Kim Jong Un embraces South Korean President Moon Jae-in, right, after their meeting at the northern side of the Panmunjom in North Korea on May 26.

The young leader has been swept to centre stage by two new props: his unprecedented nuclear capability and an unconventional United States president. "It's not only groundbreaking but history in the making".

It also could reflect a bit of tactical caution by the Kim regime.

Speaking in a series of Friday interviews with journalists from Asian countries that lie in close proximity to North Korea, Pompeo said that would include any possible clandestine sites unknown to those outside North Korea.

"We'll have to see what happens and we're going to know very soon".

Kristof says that a diplomat once told him, "the job of leaders at a summit is to pull rabbits out of hats, and the job of the Sherpas preparing for the summit is to stuff the hats with the rabbits - and there isn't really time for that". Will Kim Jong Un reciprocate, and if so, how?

Mr Trump has positioned himself as the only one who could make progress on the North Korean threat, and in so doing, declared world peace within reach.

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in, it would be good for the world".

"As well as that there are public executions, there are chronic food shortages, people actually starve to death". Despite Kim's apparent eagerness for a summit with Trump, there are doubts that he would fully relinquish his nuclear arsenal, which he may see as his guarantee of survival. He stressed it better that the leaders are talking than maintaining what he describes as the "infantile" silent treatment policy of the past.

Servicepersons of the Ministry of People's Security met on August 10, 2017 to express full support for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) government statement. "It really amazed me and I thought we can learn a lot".

But his new Secretary of State Is hinting at more.

The incident came just days before the city-state hosts high stakes talks between USA and North Korea's leaders. "More should be definitely done to at least reduce the tension, and this summit could be that milestone". "I don't want to waste his time", Trump said. "Given the size of the North Korean program and the secrecy in which it is shrouded, the task of completely and verifiably eliminating the DPRK's nuclear and missile capabilities in a matter of a year or two is simply not feasible".

Engagement is the only option.

But it doesn't want to be excluded from the talks, and Ms Sun says China flits between "war anxiety and exclusion anxiety".
