Chinese foreign minister to visit North Korea this week

The US has never been so close to getting rid of North Korean nuclear weapons, President Donald Trump has said, exuding confidence that his planned summit with the North's leader, Kim Jong Un, will go ahead.

"We're looking at various countries including Singapore and we are also talking about the possibility of the DMZ", Trump said. "Where if things work out, there is a great celebration to be had on the site, not on a third-party country".

"The situation surrounding North Korea, due to the decisive decision by President Trump on the first-ever U.S". "If it's not a success, I will respectfully leave", Trump reiterated.

In his morning tweet, Trump had already floated the site as a possible venue. "They want to be the Switzerland of Asia, they want to be seen as a partner that can have good ties with everybody", Gibson said.

Putin said Russian Federation intended to contribute to the normalization of relations between the two Koreas, including by means of trilateral infrastructure and energy projects.

It wasn't clear whether his enthusiasm was stirred by the South Korean president's suggestion Monday that Trump could take the Nobel Peace Prize if the two Koreas win peace.

Kim Jong-un and Mr Moon on Friday pledged at a summit to end hostilities between their countries and work towards the "complete denuclearisation" of the Korean peninsula.

In a statement to The Post , Vester's lawyer said that "my client stands by the allegations which speak for themselves". Brokaw earlier Friday denied the allegations in a statement provided to reporters by NBC .

Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize just months into his presidency, an award many believed was premature, given that he had little to show for his peace initiative beyond his soaring rhetoric on the campaign trail.

Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop appeared to support the push for a Trump peace prize Monday when she told ABC radio today the US President deserved to be honoured if helped broker peace on the Korean peninsula.

Asked if Moon proposed the site during his phone conversation with Trump on the weekend, the official said Panmunjom was "naturally mentioned" as they talked about an appropriate location.

But, though the Nobel Committee has made some very suspect choices over the years - Henry Kissinger comes to mind - it is exceedingly unlikely that it would reward a man who threatened nuclear war against his adversary on Twitter, even if the rosiest scenarios concerning peace on the Korean peninsula come to pass.

Moon said the government should make all necessary efforts for the successful DPRK-U.S. summit, which is forecast to be held in May or early June. Kim recently said his country would stop long-range missile and nuclear weapons tests.

Kim, the first North Korean leader to set foot in the South since the armistice, walked with Moon to the Peace House on the southern side of the border for their meeting.

China is the North's only major economic partner, but trade has declined by about 90 percent following Beijing's implementation of economic sanctions imposed over the North's nuclear bomb and ballistic missile tests.
