Trump says the time and location of meeting with Kim Jong Un is “being set”

Donald Trump to 'soon finalise' details of planned meeting with Kim Jong-un, says things are going very well

In a telephone call, Moon briefed Abe on his historic summit on April 27 with Kim, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, in which he also raised the abduction of Japanese citizens by North Korea.

The industrial complex was also included in the 2007 declaration and the two Koreas' consent on Friday to set up a communications office in Kaesong - not in Panmunjeom as many analysts expected - further raised anticipation for the resumption of the complex.

"And Kim said that the North was willing to talk to Japan any time", he said, adding that Moon told Abe about the North Korean leader's response in a phone conversation Sunday morning.

Trump has said he hopes to resolve the standoff between Washington and Pyongyang over North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs in what would be the first meeting between a North Korean leader and a sitting US president.

"Although I am inherently resistant toward America, people will see that I am not the kind of person who fires nukes at South Korea, the Pacific or America", he said.

The North and South Korean leaders both promised to work towards the 'complete denuclearisation' of the Korean Peninsula, but made no references to verification or timetables.

"There were two different clocks in the reception hall at Peace House". "That is the main game".

Trump tweeted he had a "very good talk" with Moon and updated Abe on plans for his anticipated summit with Kim.

The two countries on the divided peninsula have had different time zones since 2015 when the North suddenly changed its standard time to 30 minutes behind the South.

Singapore is being considered as a possible venue for the US-North Korean summit in May, according to Seoul officials.

During a separate interview with CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday, Bolton insisted the Trump administration is not "naive". "There are two bigger tunnels than the existing test facilities and that they are in a very good condition", he was quoted as saying. Trump has said he's looking forward to the meeting with Kim and that it "should be quite something".

But prior to his own meeting with Kim, Trump sent his own "mission statement" with Pompeo, who said he made his mission understood when he spoke with Kim over the Easter weekend.

"The positive atmosphere of the summit will lead to a period of relative calm on and around the Korean Peninsula in the short-term, which will be positive for South Korea equities and the won", said a note from Eurasia Group that said the odds of complete denuclearisation remained "poor". But Kim is promising to not only dismantle the site but allow journalists from the west to observe it, along with "experts".

Its tourism business in Mount Kumgang started in 1998 but halted in 2008 after a South Korean tourist was killed by a North Korean soldier. The third was the repair of a railroad between Kaesong and Sinuiju and the joint use of the Kaesong and Pyongyang expressway.

One difference from Friday's summit was the pledge by Kim and Moon to officially declare an end to the conflict this year. What is the best plausible outcome that we can see after this first meeting of Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un?
