Trump looks forward to meeting Kim: White House

Details trickle out nearly daily about the upcoming historic summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, probably to take place in late May or early June.

There has been no official announcement so far on when or where the U.S.

But Trump isn't the only one praising the U.S.'s involvement in North Korea relations.

"We'll be announcing it soon", he told reporters as he left the White House for a trip to Texas, without elaborating. However, Trump had, on several occasions, said he wanted a complete or partial withdrawal of the troops.

The USB was presented to Kim after he crossed the heavily guarded DMZ into South Korea by Moon Jae-in last month for the leaders' historic meeting at the border village of Panmunjom. Later, Kim announced his regime would stop nuclear and missiles tests and would scrap its test sites.

For starters, the two leaders agreed to transform the existing armistice accord between their two countries into a peace treaty that would preclude any war between them in the future. But the two superpowers would have to participate in any peace negotiation because they also signed the 1953 armistice. North Korea is accusing the USA of "deliberately provoking" it and warning the US not to misinterpret "the peace-loving intention of the DPRK as a sign of weakness".

The North's official news agency KCNA quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman as criticising the U.S. for what it calls "misleading" claims that Washington's policy of maximum political pressure and sanctions are what drove Pyongyang to the negotiating table.

The South's Yonhap news agency carried a similar report.

"This act can not be construed otherwise than a unsafe attempt to ruin the hard-won atmosphere of dialogue and bring the situation back to square one", North Korea said.

South Korea's presidential Blue House said on April 29 that Kim was ready to hold talks with Japan at "any time".

"We're having very substantive talks with North Korea and a lot of things have already happened with respect to the hostages. Now I'm trying to calm it down a little bit", he said. Mr. Trump hinted the release of Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim was in the offing.

"This third summit between the two leaders affirms the enduring strength of the United States-Republic of Korea alliance and the deep friendship between our two countries", the White House said in a statement.
