Suggesting there may already be progress, Kim announced that his country's nuclear test site will be dismantled May 23-25, and invited worldwide and media observation.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told reporters Monday in Vienna that "the irreversible closure of the site will be an important confidence-building measure that will configure to further efforts towards sustainable peace and verifiable de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Kim Jong Un has a problem - a problem that could benefit President Donald Trump and the United States in the June negotiations in Singapore with the North Korean leader regarding that country's nuclear weapons program.

Trump sent Pompeo to Pyongyang to accompany the men home following USA calls for Kim to free them as a gesture of goodwill and sincerity before the U.S. The agreement that North Korea and the United States can reach on the issue of denuclearization will directly affect the situation on the peninsula, the peace and development of Northeast Asia. He said it will include helping North Korea build its energy grid and develop agriculture so it can grow enough food for its people.

"As for the exchanges between North Korea and China, there has been normal contact between the two sides", ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said in response to a question posed by Yonhap News Agency.

"With respect to whether the actions of this past week, with respect to the JCPOA increased anyone's risk, I think that's ludicrous", Pompeo added. If we set aside the never-very-plausible idea that the Kims are madmen intent on prepping some secular apocalyptic nuclear confrontation with the USA, a more prosaic, rational strategy becomes clear: build a credible nuclear deterrent, thus making military-backed regime change unthinkable.

Wang Sheng, a Korea expert at Jilin University, said the recent property boom means the city is getting ready to do business with its neighbor, possibly on a much larger scale than before.

In a statement, the White House said the Trump-Guterres meeting "will reaffirm the commitment of the United States to improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the United Nations".

Xi advised Kim to "give top priority" to reaching "a comprehensive agreement on denuclearization" with the US, according to the daily. "We're working diligently to get each of them back".

Kim Dong-chul was arrested in 2015 in North Korea, two years before the other hostages, on spying charges. In 2000, toward the end of the Bill Clinton administration, the North invited then-U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to Pyongyang, but negotiations fell apart after the change in U.S. administration. Official data shows China has not imported any coal from North Korea since October a year ago, after the United Nations banned Pyongyang from exporting coal in September.

Singapore appears to be a safe pick for the summit. As Trump often says, "Let's see what would happen". Meanwhile, Bolton is announcing that he's prepared to push for trade sanctions against American allies if they trade with Iran.

A TDP online poll asked readers: "How confident are you that President Trump will be able to get Kim Jong Un to agree to total nuclear disarmament during their upcoming summit?"
