President Trump meeting with North Korea could bring temporary p

The White House said Trump's meeting with Kim would take place "at a place and time to be determined".

The US expects North Korea to halt all nuclear and missile testing in advance of any meeting, Mr Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said on Sunday news shows.

After having been the guarantor of North Korea's security, indeed, its very existence, for years and after having acceded to Mr Trump's numerous appeals for help, China today is in the awkward position of not knowing if either the USA or North Korea is willing to hold their unprecedented meeting on Chinese soil.

"However, I would strongly urge the Administration to remember that Kim Jong Un, like his father and grandfather before him, have long sought a visit from the president of the United States to enhance their own prestige and justify their risky pursuit of nuclear weapons".

China is claiming credit for the breakthrough in US-North Korea relations.

Brown and Portman both supported a bill past year that imposed sanctions on North Korea for testing a long-range ballistic missile.

"While the trekkers were coming down, they came across forest fire and the group got divided", she said. Around 20 students belonging to the group of 40 trekkers are said to be trapped inside the forest.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has accepted Kim's offer to meet near their shared border later next month, a meeting in which Kim was expected to suggested resuming cultural exchanges and family reunions.

The United States and North Korea fought on opposite sides of a war in the 1950s, and in the last two decades have been engaged in perhaps the world's most unsafe nuclear standoff, with 30,000 U.S. military personnel stationed just over the border in the South. Kim has pilloried Trump as "senile" and a "dotard".

The "pressure campaign" that Pompeo is referring to is the US -led effort to place crippling sanctions on North Korea, which do appear to have had a significant impact on the hermit kingdom's economic health. The Olympics in South Korea provided a convenient moment for him to dispatch his sister Kim Yo Jong - the "Princess of Pyongyang" (Disney movie to follow) - to trot out the best-known maneuver in the North Korean playbook: come to the table, get everyone excited about "peace in our time", demand and receive concessions, and revert to bad behavior.

South Korean envoys had earlier briefed Mr Trump on the meeting they had this week with Mr Kim, saying he was now "committed to denuclearisation".

He said that no venue for the meeting had been agreed upon.

"President Trump isn't doing this for theater".

Yesterday, South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui Yong met Mr Xi in Beijing, while National Intelligence Service chief Suh Hoon met Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono in Tokyo.

South Korea's National Security Office chief, Chung Eui-yong, who led the delegation to Pyongyang, will head to Russian Federation on Tuesday, while spy agency chief Suh Hoon met Japan's foreign minister in Tokyo, where he is to speak with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Tuesday.

North Korea and the United States have made the possibility of talks more likely by easing tensions.

Japan and South Korea agreed on Monday that maximum pressure must be maintained on North Korea until it takes concrete action towards addressing concerns about its nuclear weapon and missile programs, Japan's foreign minister said.

The Moon administration also may offer North Korea an economic deal tied to progress in denuclearization. It has continued to warn the United States and Japan against war-mongering, but its rhetoric has been tame compared with threats exchanged at the height of tensions a year ago. "South Korea planned military exercises".
