Dennis Rodman Heading To Singapore For Trump-Kim Summit

The confirmation came a day after a USA delegation visited North Korea for preparatory talks and on June 1, a North Korean official Kim Yong Chol met President Trump at the White House and delivered a letter from Kim Jong Un.

Mr Putin said during an interview with Austrian public broadcaster ORF overnight that the denuclearisation of the North shouldn't be "one-way road".

Singapore's foreign minister will make a two-day trip to Pyongyang starting Thursday, as preparations for a summit in the city-state between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un accelerate.

Meanwhile Trump has promised to "transform" the rogue state after a meeting with the dictator's right-hand man, Kim Yong Choi.

The Capella hotel on Sentosa Island will host the historic meeting, amid strong security measures that include restricting Singapore's airspace, among other measures. But she said there has been no change in what Trump has described as a "maximum pressure" campaign on the North Korean regime.

"We feel like things are continuing to move forward and good progress has been made", Ms Sanders said.

In the United States fear that if they pay the bills, the North Korean delegation in North Korea could take that as an insult.

"I think at the end of that process, that's the goal, unilateral denuclearization, disarming them and so forth", Kudlow said, noting that he is not directly involved in the talks.

He says the tough line forced the North Korean leader to soften his stance.

Trump also said that there would be no new sanctions while the talks are taking place, although the White House was at pains to say existing economic sanctions will not be removed either. "Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un are pretty much the same", Rodman said.

National security advisers are briefing Trump daily about the summit, which he wants to use as a vehicle to persuade Kim to shut down North Korea's nuclear weapons program.
