Outcome of summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un depends on 'attitude'

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, left, and President Trump.

"I would like to pay my deep respect to the outstanding leadership of President Trump, as he made this decision that no past presidents were able to accomplish", Abe said.

"They have to de-nuke", Trump said in the Oval Office.

The two options: Seek a freeze on North Korea's nuclear and missile programs through direct engagement, or increase pressure on North Korea through China.

"They [searched] my bags and then told me that this is a very sensitive time to be in Singapore and that I should stay away from the Sentosa Island as well as the Shangri-La hotel in town", he said in a Facebook post. "It's about attitude, it's about willingness to get things done".

If Singapore's reputation for tight security was one reason the real Kim Jong Un agreed to hold his summit with Donald Trump in the city-state, the fake Kim Jong Un now knows why. He said the talks would start a process to bring about a resolution to the nuclear issue. If you're not going to be able to walk away - we didn't walk away from the frightful Iran deal that was signed, and if you look at what's happened, since I signed that deal, Iran and in all fairness, I say it with great respect for the people of Iran, but Iran is acting a lot differently. It could happen. Maybe it won't be necessary. "And we'll know that very quickly". "If they don't denuclearise that will not be acceptable".

"We shall never repeat the past mistakes", Mr Abe said.

Trump, who coined the term "maximum pressure" to describe USA sanctions against the North, said they would be an indicator for the success or failure of the talks.

Mr Trump said there are a "lot of good factors lined up for North Korea" and that he thinks the summit will be "a terrific success or a modified success". "But it wasn't so I'll solve it and we'll get it done", Trump said. How do we know?

Though, some of his relatives said he visited the medical college hospital recently in order to meet a relative of his friend. Kerala Health Minister K K Shailaja called for an emergency meeting that will take place this afternoon.

The report also stated Kim would be easier to negotiate with than past North Korean leaders, and the possibility remains the United States could win him over, according to the Asahi. The 1950-53 Korean War ended in an armistice, leaving the two sides technically at war.

Administration officials indicated that Trump actually was putting in preparation time.

Trump told reporters Thursday that he wasn't aware the 6-foot-7 former NBC star would be in the neighborhood. The Trump administration has scheduled and planned for the session in a span of three months.

His negotiating skills as president have had mixed success: his attempt to negotiate a healthcare deal with lawmakers fell apart a year ago, but then he was able to get tax-cut bill through Congress.

Abe most recently traveled to the USA in April to meet with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate, where he warned trump of North Korean negotiating ploys and urged him to closely coordinate with Japan ahead of the summit.

"The fact was no US president wanted to do this, and for good reason", he said. The reactor had been designed and built by North Korean technicians, and ten of them were killed in the attack.

Earlier Thursday, Trump proclaimed himself ready for the summit, which is taking place with no precooked outcome and without the usual months or years of run-up meetings among lower level aides.

"I will provide an update and underscore the importance of implementing all sanctions imposed on North Korea", he said.

Abe, who enjoys a close relationship with Trump, is expected to continue to press Trump to strike a hard line with Kim and to urge him to maintain pressure on North Korea until it agrees to full and verifiable denuclearization.
