US President Donald Trump will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore on 12 June in a historic inter-Korean summit.
Although in late April raised hopes of reconciliation, North Korea showed a dramatic change in tone in recent days. North Korea’s chief negotiator Ri Son Gwon said it would not hold talks with South Korea unless their demands were met, taking issue with the U.S.-South Korean air combat drills known as Max Thunder.
The key issue expected to be discussed is North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme – over which Mr Trump and Mr Kim furiously sparred in 2017.
The North Korea has carried out six nuclear tests since 2006, despite international condemnation and sanctions, saying it needs the weapons for its own security.
The US wants Pyongyang to give up its weapons programme completely and irreversibly.
Favor the distension between all the participants and favor the opening of paths of dialogue and concording.
