Tillerson seeks neutral site for Trump-Kim talks

"But perhaps Kim made a more far-reaching offer".

The US president recently accepted an invitation to meet the North Korean leader in the coming months. That also means Washington can effectively and indefinitely deter him with overwhelming conventional and nuclear superiority - because, again, his aim is not expansion.McMaster's expansionary framework is crucial to his dismissal of and deterrence as a viable option with North Korea and his push for Washington to take an aggressive, military-first approach. He says that it's in the "very early stages".

"We know that they have responded due to that, and they have pushed this message through the South Koreans to us".

"We expect a smooth DPRK-ROK summit and DPRK-US dialogue", Xi said, using the acronyms for North Korea and South Korea, according to the official Xinhua news agency.

The Swiss foreign ministry has said the country is ready to facilitate talks between North Korea and the United States, and is in contact with both sides. Trump dispensed with decades of USA foreign policy orthodoxy with his decision, particularly given that the North Korean leader made only a vague offer - conveyed via a South Korean delegation that visited him - to discuss giving up his nuclear weapons program. "South Korea planned military exercises".

"He's marshalled unprecedented economic and diplomatic pressure on the regime in North Korea and this breakthrough - and we hope it is a breakthrough - is a result of the strong leadership the president has provided on the world stage", Pence said.

Joongang Ilbo, another South Korean daily, reported that Kim may have offered denuclearization of the sort the US seeks, provided that the USA can guarantee the continuity of the Kim government.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Tuesday that Japan wanted to see a resolution to the issue of past abductions of Japanese citizens from talks with North Korea and that North Korea must match its words with actions. Xi told Chung that this would lead to a "thaw in ice and the arrival of spring" on the Korean Peninsula.

But he says that doesn't mean China won't have a role in the broader process.

The experts believe that North Korea could announce an extension of its freeze on missile and nuclear tests.

The foreign minister also asked the South Korean spy chief if the issue of Japanese abductees was discussed during his trip to Pyongyang, to which Suh replied that it was not.

In Geneva, the United Nations investigator on North Korea told the world body's Human Rights Council that any progress in the nuclear and security dialogue must be accompanied by talks on human rights violations, including political prison camps.
