I'll 'feel' if Kim Jong Un is serious at summit

President Trump has departed the G7 summit in Charlevoix, Canada, and is on his way to Singapore where he will meet North Korean president Kim Jong-un later this week. "If there's a peace prize that anybody should get, we should get it", he quipped. The two men exchanged fiery rhetoric previous year over North Korea's attempts to build nuclear weapons that could reach the United States but tensions have since calmed considerably.

Sending a delegation to the Olympic Games helped to improve North Korea's image. But nothing will be fully settled until China, which sent hundreds of thousands of troops into the North to prevent a quick USA victory in 1950, and South Korea also sign off.

Eight days after cancelling the unprecedented summit, citing Pyongyang's "open hostility,"Trump welcomed North Korea's former intelligence chief, now under punitive USA sanctions, to the White House Oval Office, afterward exchanging smiles and handshakes, and patting his arm in a friendly gesture". An estimated 120,000 prisoners are housed in remote labour camps, serving life sentences for both political and non-political crimes.

North Korea's catastrophic human rights record is inextricably linked with the threat of its nuclear weapons, and addressing those abuses can not be avoided.

Some observers believe that Trump shouldn't open negotiations by focusing on a peace deal, and instead should use the prospect of such a treaty as leverage to get the North to abandon its weapons.

Stephens takes swipe at 'haters' in media
From the beginning of the match, the 10th-ranked Stephens was clearly superior on her serve, and offered resistance on Halep's. I'm really happy that it's happened at Roland Garros in Paris . "I said there is a chance to come back and win it".

Rodman has faced ridicule and criticism for his trips to North Korea, which some USA politicians and activists view as serving only as fodder for North Korean propaganda.

So why would Trump purposefully say, in front of his friend Abe, who has a lot to lose in the North Korea talks, that he wasn't preparing? "The North Koreans have already gotten what they need out of this".

North Korea also agreed to discuss missile proliferation issues, but by 1998 it was testing and improving its missile capabilities. Although then-South Korean President Syngman Rhee, who wanted to fight on until the North was crushed, refused to sign the armistice, it still took effect. The pact finally broke down in 2002 when the U.S. accused the North of running a secret uranium enrichment programme. By 2003, North Korea had started its entire nuclear programme again.

It has since been reconfirmed and with days ago the USA president has returned to his fire-and-fury rhetoric.

Singapore is easily in the range of the Soviet-era narrow-body Il-62M aircraft that flies on four engines, but some media speculated that it may stop in China as a precaution since it was not frequently used in recent years for such a long distance.

"That's what you learn at the Wharton School of Finance", said President Trump. The domestic importance of Trump's visit is evidenced by the fact that much of USA media, and particularly conservative media, will have a presence in Singapore all of next week.

Haas offers a useful warning, though, as people around the world settle in to watch the show in Singapore: "Virtually no North Korea analyst inside or outside of the USA government" expects Kim to actually give up his nukes.

Let's hope the man that invented the "Art of the Deal" can get a deal done.
