North Korea has 'brilliant potential' as U.S. team arrives at border

Trump: Plan for June summit with North Korea 'hasn't changed'

"What's more important than anything from the latest inter-Korean summit was that the leaders easily got in contact, easily made an appointment and easily met to discuss urgent matters, without complicated procedures and formalities, just like a casual meeting", Moon told a meeting with senior secretaries.

Nauert provided no further details.

After weeks of political posturing by both Trump and Kim, analysts welcomed the news the United States had dispatched a team of seasoned negotiators to hold several days of preparatory talks with the North Koreans.

The U.S. delegation is led by veteran diplomat Sung Kim.

At Panmunjom, Mr Sung Kim's team reportedly includes Ms Allison Hooker, a low-key but respected Korea specialist on the National Security Council. Negotiations over logistics and other issues related to the possible summit meeting are expected to begin Tuesday.

The Trump administration is demanding that North Korea completely and irreversibly dismantle its nuclear weapons programme.

U.S. government officials, including the White House deputy chief of staff for operations Joe Hagin, left U.S. Yokota Air Base in Japan for Singapore on Monday, NHK said.

Four reasons why the team will win Game 7
That's how they looked in the second half of Game 1, over the final 45 minutes of Game 3 and over the final 36 minutes of Game 6. Saturday night's game takes place on the Warriors' home court, where they have only lost once in their last 17 playoff games.

"Our United States team has arrived in North Korea to make arrangements for the Summit between Kim Jong-un and myself".

The two sides are meeting at Tongilgak on the northern side of the truce village.

Hours after meeting with relatives of the abductees on the day, Abe said he "conveyed their feelings" to Trump over the phone. Once he sees that Trump is willing to bully the Chinese a little bit, then I think Kim will actually start to play ball with us. In a press conference Sunday morning, Moon weighed in on Kim's feelings about negotiations, saying that "what's uncertain for [Kim] is not his intentions for denuclearization, but Washington's stance in hostile relations with North Korea, and whether Washington can really secure and guarantee his regime".

Gold futures are retreating early Monday on revived expectations of a U.S.

Last week President Donald Trump abruptly pulled out of a meeting with Kim Jong Un scheduled for June 12, citing "tremendous anger and hostility" on the North Korean side.

Since then, North Korea has rejected USA demands for it to unilaterally abandon its nuclear weapons programme that experts say could threaten the United States.

Any attendance by Mr Moon would be dependent on the progress of pre-summit talks between the U.S. and North Korean leaders, said the Blue House.

Republicans, no Democrats, invited to see documents on USA election probe
Since then, the special counsel has provided more details in an effort to convince Trump's lawyers to agree to an interview. And the White House said Kelly would organize the meeting with House lawmakers to discuss the documents.

Mr Moon said yesterday there could be more impromptu talks between the two Koreas in the lead-up to the summit.

The second meeting between Kim and Moon in as many months reflects urgency among both men to maintain momentum for diplomacy.

China, South Korea and the United States all back denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, but differ on how to make that happen. "They are going to be best friends right after this meeting". South Korea and China account for nearly all of North Korea's land borders, so their support is essential for enforcing sanctions ramped up a year ago after Mr Kim declared the ability to strike the United States with a nuclear weapon. "What's unclear for Chairman Kim, in my opinion, is not his willingness for denuclearization, but whether he can certainly trust the US saying that it'll end hostile relations and guarantee the security of his regime after his denuclearization".

He now serves as head of the United Front Department, the arm of the ruling Workers' Party that deals with relations with South Korea.

"In Trump's thinking, his "maximum pressure" would've resulted in Kim kneeling and returning to dialogue in surrender anyway if it reached the boiling point", he added. "But he wants to give off this perception that he's this open leader, that he's peaceful, that he's reasonable".

US stocks fell 0.2 percent on Friday after oil tanked the most in 11 months on concerns over more supply from OPEC.

Trump can't block users from his Twitter feed, federal judge rules
The Knight Institute hopes that the ruling against Trump will set a precedent for other public officials across the country. Noah Feldman, a Harvard law professor, said he thinks the case was wrongly decided and expects it to be reversed.
