Japan trying to arrange Abe-Trump talks before US-North Korea summit

President Trump is making rash and risky moves that promise either brilliant success or catastrophic failure. "I hope Mr. Trump will make a breakthrough to achieve our goals".

Opening the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to Christianity may prove to be a tall order for the first summit between the USA and North Korea, however, in obtaining the release of Tony Kim, Kim Hak-song and Kim Dong-chul President Trump has once again proven himself to be a defender of persecuted Christians and, unusual as it may seem, the best friend of religious liberty to inhabit the White House in a long time.

The North wanted to ensure Kim's "absolute power" and its model of hereditary succession, he added, and would oppose intrusive inspections as they "would be viewed as a process of breaking down Kim Jong Un's absolute power in front of the eyes of ordinary North Koreans and elites".

Singapore 2018 might even become one of Trump's legacies, though I suspect at this point he's not as fixated on legacy building as most presidents. That meeting has since been set for June 12 in Singapore.

"We've seen some signs of goodwill from North Korea just this week, with the three Americans brought back home, also the stopping of the ballistic-missile test, the stopping with their research and development on their nuclear program", Sanders said.

In response, Kim brands Trump "mentally deranged" and a "dotard", warning he will pay dearly for his threats.

North Korea's official name and flag appear on the ageing Soviet-made aircraft, which first emerged four years ago and has carried Kim on various trips across his country in the past. "I really believe that". More to the point, having surrendered his nuclear program, Ghadafi was overthrown, with United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation involvement, in 2011.

"It is my knowledge this position was directly conveyed to Kim by Secretary of State Pompeo", the diplomat said, adding the United States wants to shorten the time "as much as physically possible" to inspect and verify the removal of weapons.

As leaders from the Group of Seven industrialised nations are expected to gather in Canada on June 8 and 9, Abe hopes to hold talks with Trump on the fringes of the summit and coordinate efforts toward resolving issues related to Pyongyang, the sources said. Secondly, some predict that Kim will demand that US troops withdraw from South Korea.

"We had good conversations, substantive conversations".

Whatever the outcome, Trump would do well to ask himself if it is any better than the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran, which he has described has "the worst deal ever". He seems to be trying to start an unthinkable war. But actually it is, or was, quite good.

In rejecting the Iran deal, Mr Trump equated Iran's right to a civilian nuclear programme as a path to a nuclear weapon.

Put yourself, for a moment, in the Iranian regime's position.

"Our new slogan for 2020, you know what it is?"

According to the U.S. State Department's report on human rights for 2017, Singapore's "most significant human rights issues" included caning as punishment imposed by the courts; preventive detention under various laws without warrant, filing of charges, or normal judicial review; monitoring private electronic or telephone communications without a warrant; significant restrictions on freedoms of assembly and expression, including for the press and online; the use of defamation laws to discourage criticism; laws and regulations significantly limiting freedom of association; and the criminalization of sexual activities between men, although the law was not enforced. And his withdrawal from the global nuclear agreement with Iran, with strong support from Israel, has escalated tensions in the already volatile region.
