  • Trump says time, place for NKorea meeting is set

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Mr Kim discussed the Americans last month when Mr Pompeo visited North Korea.

Trump, a former reality TV star who likes to build suspense about upcoming presidential news, did not give a date or location for the North Korea summit, and White House officials did not immediately provide further clarity.

Plans for a Trump-Kim summit follow months of tense saber-rattling over Pyongyang's testing of atomic weapons and long-range missiles, including some theoretically capable of reaching the American mainland.

Kim's demands and intentions remain uncertain, meaning contemplation by Trump to remove the troops could prove quixotic.

Accordingly, the two Koreas removed their propaganda loudspeakers this week. Park swore to "let North Koreans know the truth" and "bring an end to the North's Kim Jong Un regime".

He taught accounting at the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology.

The US President also expressed optimism regarding the release of three US hostages held in a North Korean prison, saying "you're going to see very good things".

'I won't use the rhetoric now, ' he said.

The New York Times said Trump had asked the Pentagon for troop withdrawal options, although Trump said it was not true and Bolton called the report 'utter nonsense'.

Sensing the impact that the NYT report could have on the proceedings, both the US and South Korea objected to it saying it was untrue. The government has taken criticism for putting North Korea's numerous human rights violations on the back burner in pursuit of peace and whatever that might include. "If they are gone, we will lose proof that the Americans will defend us". Moon's office said news that the White House was considering drawing down troops was "not true at all". "Much of the reason they are staying here will be gone".

South Korean police prevented the launch of balloons by a group of activists, who meant to throw campaign leaflets onto the territory of North Korea, the Yonhap news agency reported Saturday.

North Korea is not the only country to have used time to assert its national identity.

Trump is addressing a report that he had asked the Pentagon to prepare plans for scaling back the US military presence in South Korea, as he has complained that South Korea does not do enough to financially support that commitment.
