TestVietnam to witness second Trump-Kim summit in late Feb

TestVietnam to witness second Trump-Kim summit in late Feb

Trump's optimism comes as U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun is gearing up to hold a meeting with his North Korean counterpart early next week, possibly at the truce village of Panmunjeom.

But before the process of denuclearization can be final, Biegun said the USA must receive a "comprehensive declaration" that provides a "complete understanding of the full extent of the North Korean [weapons of mass destruction] and missile programs".

He said the USA has "contingencies" prepared in case negotiations fail, but did not give details.

The situation on the Korean Peninsula has reportedly improved since beginning of 2018 during which time North and South Korea concluded important agreements and Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump held a historic summit in Singapore in June previous year.

Last June's summit - the first between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader - produced a vague commitment by Kim to work toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, but he has yet to take what Washington sees as concrete steps in that direction.

Earlier, on Wednesday, the president had called United States intelligence chiefs "extremely passive and naive" and advised them to go back to school after they contradicted him on threats posed by Iran, North Korea and ISIS during congressional testimony.

"We're going to announce it pretty soon".

The US State Department's top envoy on North Korea has said that Washington was not looking to invade Pyongyang and signalled that America will be willing to formally end the Korean War.

In the first North-U.S. summit on June 12 a year ago, the North Korean and U.S. delegations stayed in separate hotels in downtown Singapore and commuted by auto to the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island on the day of the talks.

President Josep Maria Bartomeu, general manager Pep Segura and CEO, Òscar Grau were in Amsterdam on Wednesday to close the deal. De Jong will earn around 16 million euros per year - 10 million net, with another six million in performance-related bonuses.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said Thursday she was "stunned" that President Donald Trump publicly chastised top USA intelligence officials by saying they were "naive" after they disputed several of his claims of foreign policy success.

The Times reported Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said he did "not believe Iran is now undertaking activities we judge necessary to produce a nuclear device" in his Tuesday testimony. "We are not seeking to topple the regime", he said.

Coats, meanwhile, said that ISIS remains a threat-a statement that appears at odds with Trump's assertions that the USA has defeated ISIS in Syria.

They'll be tasked with "achieving a set of concrete deliverables, a road map of negotiations and declarations going forward, and a shared understanding of the desired outcome of our joint efforts", Biegun said Thursday during a speech at Stanford University.

The North is also apparently demanding the inclusion of a multilateral peace treaty on the summit agenda. The two countries agreed to hold another summit in February between their nation's leaders.

It found Pyongyang leaders continue to "view nuclear arms as critical to regime survival".

Mr Biegun said the past 25 years of talks had shown that the possibility of failure was great, and stressed: "We need to have contingencies if the diplomatic process fails - which we do". "They said that they were totally misquoted and.it was taken out of context".

Biegun said the details would have to be tackled in working-level talks to establish conditions "to fundamentally transform the U.S".
