Trump says working with Abe to improve trade relations

Make Palestine kneel like Kim did, Giuliani suggests

Both Japan and South Korea, Trump said, has told him they are going to go and they will help the North Koreans economically, tremendously.

"Yes, certainly if it goes well".

"I think it's going to be a very fruitful meeting, I think it's going to be an exciting meeting".

"I appreciated it very much, and nothing other than". Speaking at a White House press briefing on Thursday, .

No previous US administration had ever made such promises to North Korea in this way. The 1950-53 conflict ended with an armistice but not a formal peace treaty. Now that you know the venue for the meet, we've also got you inside photos of the luxury hotel in Singapore.

"I hope it continues on this track". The administration first announced the president's intention to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in early March, leaving only a few months to prepare.

Pompeo said Trump was hopeful, but he is also going into the summit with his eyes wide open. He said so. "I think I'm very well prepared", Trump told reporters on Thursday. It's about willingness to get things done.

"He would look at it very favourably so that could happen", the USA president said at a joint press conference with Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe.

"It was really a very warm letter, a very nice letter". I never said it goes in one meeting. "It would be wonderful if it were", he said.

He added: "They have to denuke". "The United States has been clear time and time again: the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean peninsula is the only outcome that we will find acceptable".

Tokyo is also a strong advocate of the worldwide sanctions regime against Pyongyang.

"We could absolutely sign an agreement and we're looking at it", said Trump. I've told you that many times before. "Sanctions are extraordinarily powerful".

Yet the South Korean national, who runs the iSpeak Korean Language Centre, says she has neither seen nor spoken to any of her Northern neighbours or people entering the embassy since they moved in two years ago.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on Kim to make the "bold" decision necessary to bring security and prosperity to his country.

Mr Trump said he would probably favour the White House over his private Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, as a venue for hosting Mr Kim, saying: "Maybe we'll start with the White House".

"I am totally prepared to walk away".

Policemen patrol the venue of the 13th International Institute for Strategic Studies Asia Security Summit: The Shangri-La Dialogue, in Singapore May 30, 2014.

Above all, Trump seems most enthused by the notion of being the first sitting US leader to hold direct talks with a scion of the ruling Kim dynasty. -North Korea summit meeting.

The two options: Seek a freeze on North Korea's nuclear and missile programs through direct engagement, or increase pressure on North Korea through China. Pyongyang's definition has included the removal of "hostile" USA policy, including Washington's military presence in the region and the nuclear umbrella over Seoul and Tokyo.

If Trump walks out of the historic summit without a written agreement, it would be considered a failure and he would face harsh political attacks at home, months ahead of the mid-term elections.

Mr. Trump made the remarks after meeting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to discuss the June 12 summit.
