Defector explains what North Koreans don't know about the world

Singapore READ MOREA brief history of Singapore where Trump will meet Kim
Cristina Norman | 10 June, 2018, 09:26

So, the president, I can imagine him saying, 'We've agreed on this peace treaty, ' which is what we said in 2005.

Participants attend at a rally wishing for a successful summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un and peace on the Korea peninsular near the U.S. embassy in Seoul, South Korea, Saturday, June 9, 2018.

"President Trump has said repeatedly he's prepared to make big changes and to undertake bold action; and if Chairman Kim Jong Un is prepared to do that, so is the United States of America", Pompeo added.

After trying to smooth over tensions with the six other leaders at the summit in Canada, Trump spoke optimistically about his looming meeting and said he believed it would go well, reports Daily Mail. "Well, I think very quickly I'll know whether something good is going to happen". "That's why I feel positive, because it makes so much sense". You ever hear of that one?

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in, it would be good for the world".

Then Trump hit an assortment of topics, including trade, North Korea and kept pushing for reinstatement Russia, which had been tossed from what was then the G-8 in 2014, after the country annexed Crimea and endorsed pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine.

During a promotional event dubbed the "real" Trump-Kim summit, the men waved at shoppers as they walked through the crowded Bugis Junction mall. The top USA diplomat declared that "Chairman Kim shares the objectives with the American people" amid talk of a grand bargain that could see North Korean disarmament met with a massive influx of outside aid.

US President Donald Trump has assessed highly North Korea's efforts to prepare for the upcoming US-North Korea summit.

The highly-anticipated meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Kim Jong Un is scheduled for next Tuesday. "There's probably an even better chance that it will take a period of time, it'll be a process", said Trump.

"The minimum would be a relationship - you'd start at least a dialogue", Trump added, when asked about outcomes. (Carlos Barria/Reuters) North Korea handing over its nuclear weapons, however, is nearly certainly not going to happen at this meeting.

To achieve this long-held desire he has dramatically shifted in character from isolated angry strongman to global statesman.

A half-mile away at the Shangri-La Hotel, where the USA side will stay, Secret Service agents, in a casual uniform of khaki slacks and dark polo shirts, milled about the lobby. Kim's detailed command of the issues central to his country's nuclear conflict has impressed USA officials who have interacted with him since Trump's diplomacy with the North began.

It has since been reconfirmed and with days ago the USA president has returned to his fire-and-fury rhetoric.

After a flurry of contacts between the two Koreas, South Korean officials suggested to Trump in March that Kim would be willing to meet face-to-face.

Getting a legally binding peace treaty is unlikely in Singapore because "you have to disentangle a lot of United Nations security issues, Security Council issues", said Christopher Hill, a former lead USA nuclear negotiator with the North, who also noted that "as a practical matter, China has to be there".
