Global Pulse: A breakthrough on the Korean peninsula is on the horizon

"North Korea is expressing its intention for complete denuclearization", Moon said during a lunch meeting in the presidential Blue House with top executives from 48 media companies.

A South Korean delegation visited Pyongyang in early March and met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

"If I think that it's a meeting that is not going to be fruitful, we're not going to go", said the USA president.

A peace treaty is thought to be one of the measures to guarantee the North Korean regime's security in return for the communist state agreeing to abandon its nuclear weapons program.

Trump also said his administration is negotiating with Pyongyang for the release of three Americans who remain captive in the North and suggested that they could be freed as part of a diplomatic thaw between the two nations, which do not have formal government relations. Hundreds of thousands of Americans - civilians and military - live in Guam, South Korea and Japan and are in direct danger from North Korean attack.

The Blue House said the two leaders would hold a conversation before their meeting in Panmunjeom scheduled for next week.

The agenda of next week's summit is still unknown, but will nearly certainly include processes leading to North Korean denuclearization and a peace treaty to end the Korean War. "Hopefully, that meeting will be a great success and we're looking forward to it", Trump said, adding that it would be tremendous for the world if the meeting went well.

Will the United States be able to talk the North Korean leader into giving up his nuclear weapons? But asking whether there are no signs whatsoever that North Korea is willing to take specific steps to dismantle its nuclear program unpacks a lot of telling history.

(Xi) doesn't want to see a North Korea, or any Korea that has nuclear weapons either. He also said that any proposed troop withdrawal would be a condition that the United States could not accept.

Trump said on Wednesday he hoped the summit would be successful, but warned he would call it off if he did not think it would produce results.

Nagy further told the media that North Korea is trying to understand USA capabilities and what they may be able to do "in terms of taking out the regime".

The truce village in the Demilitarized Zone that divides the two Koreas will host a summit between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in next week.

At the same time that Trump has agreed to a diplomatic summit, his nomination of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state and his appointment of John Bolton as national security adviser signal interest in a nondiplomatic approach. -North Korean relations.

During the inter-Korean summit, the two Koreas are expected to discuss North Korea's denuclearization, ways to establish peace on the Korean Peninsula and improve inter-Korean ties.
