Korea, US vow close coordination on N. Korea

"I explained to Secretary Ross that South Korean steel does not pose a threat to U.S. national security and emphasized that the South Korea-U.S. alliance is at a juncture where we need to cooperate", Kang said.

While reiterating his intention to meet with the North Korean leader by the end of May, Trump agreed that not words but concrete actions will be the key to achieving permanent denuclearization of the peninsula.

Ri was scheduled to talk with Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom Thursday and Friday, according to both countries' foreign ministries, one week after Trump accepted an invitation by Kim to talks, announcing plans to hold a summit by May.

Swedish public broadcaster SVT reported, without citing sources, that Ri planned to stay in Sweden until Sunday.

The possibilities of a summit meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un emerged after Moon Jae-in, president of South Korea, took the initiative. "North Korea summit to be held by May will be an important turning point", Kang told reporters after the meeting.

"They will also address the security situation on the Korean peninsula, which is high on the (UN) Security Council agenda", a ministry statement said.

The embassy also represents US, Canadian and Australian diplomatic interests in North Korea, with Sweden playing a key role in liaising diplomatic talks. Sweden is now a non-permanent member of the Security Council.

After months of tension and warmongering over Pyongyang's nuclear programme, Trump has agreed to a summit proposal relayed by South Korean envoys who met Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang.

"We agreed that the inter-Korean summit in April and the U.S".

Ivanka Trump sat down Thursday with South Korea's foreign minister for a meeting whose goal remains a mystery.

Kono and Mattis agreed that through a planned USA visit by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for talks with Trump in early April, the two allies will closely coordinate on issues related to North Korea, including a first-ever U.S.

"We've made a decision to narrow down the agenda topics to denuclearising the Korean peninsula, securing permanent peace to ease military tension and new, bold ways to take inter-Korean relations forward", said Im, who is head of the preparation team.
