Kim Jong-un Plans Formal Nod to Denuclearization, South Korea Says

He sought the meeting last month after Trump's surprise decision to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, only to receive a wave of fresh criticism from the USA president, who complained on Twitter that Japan had "hit us hard on trade for years". He should use his next strikes on Syria both to punish dictator Bashar Assad and to demonstrate to Kim what might happen to North Korea. The deal broke down after the regime launched a missile over Japan in 1998 (North Korea says it carried a satellite).

He added that the promotion was "huge" for North Korea as Ri Sol Ju had joined a "very select club".

"They've conferred extremely closely", said Matt Pottinger, the top Asia official on Trump's National Security Council, during a Tuesday briefing.

The time frame for North Korea's denuclearisation may be addressed during Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's trip to the United States from Tuesday to Friday for talks with US President Donald Trump, the sources said.

In Pyongyang, Kim hosted a reception banquet for the Chinese delegation.

If there's a bright side to being in sunny Florida for Abe, it's that he's not in Japan.

Golf is not on the official schedule, but senior administration officials didn't rule it out completely. Abe attributed much of North Korea's seeming shift in attitude to Mr. Trump's determination.

Any joint statement is unlikely to include economic cooperation with the North, Im said.

This time, Abe's visit comes weeks after Trump took him - and the region - by surprise by announcing he had accepted an invitation to sit down with Kim following months of increasingly heated rhetoric over the North's nuclear weapons program.

If a new leader in Catalonia is not elected by May 22, new regional elections will be held. Spanish and German prosecutors met last week at the headquarters of Eurojust in The Hague.

Here are some key moments in North Korea's nuclear quest. Masamichi Adachi, senior economist at JPMorgan Securities Japan, said that domestic woes may help Abe gain some US concessions.

That history is why arms-control experts urge caution as Kim expresses a willingness to discuss "denuclearization" during a summit with Trump in May or June. Pyongyang has acknowledging abducting 13 Japanese, while Tokyo maintains North Korea abducted 17.

President Donald Trump says conversations between North and South Korea to end their decades-long war have his blessing.

Trade is another Japanese concern; Abe's government fears that Trump's "America First" policy will reduce trade between the two nations, or at least make it more costly.

Another irritant on trade is that Japan has not been given an exemption to tariffs on steel and aluminium exports to the United States, unlike the European Union, Canada and Mexico.

The summit will be vital for setting the "right atmosphere" for future exchanges, Do said.

North Korea has routinely pointed to US military interventions as justification for its nuclear weapons program, citing in 2013 "the tragic consequences in those countries which abandoned halfway their nuclear programs" - an allusion, in particular, to Libya and Gadhafi, who was sodomized with a bayonet before being shot dead immediately after his capture in 2011.

For the last decade, about 20 per cent of China's exports have been ferried to the United States, according to Moody's Investors Services, which forecasts a material macroeconomic impact if Trump makes good on his threats with the consequences vibrating beyond China's end exporters and deep into the economy.

Trump stressed that the two sides in this week's talks are unified.
