North Korea goes back to the future, by 30 minutes

'Date is set' for Kim summit

Moon met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un last month, and both sides promised to pursue the complete denuclearization of the peninsula and a permanent peace.

South Korea has been working closely with old ally the United States on efforts to rein in North Korea's nuclear and missile programs, with an easing of tensions in recent months after threats of war from North Korea and Trump.

Hours earlier, Trump said a date and place for his upcoming summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un would be announced in the coming days.

ReutersDonald Trump has previously threatened to "destroy" North Korea.

North Korean defector-activists in the South are criticizing the South Korean government for restricting activities of civic groups.

The report is also of significance at this time since Washington and Seoul are in the middle of negotiations of an agreement to share the costs of the deployed troops for Trump has always maintained his reservation over the USA paying for the umbrella covering its allies across the world.

Another sign of the rapprochement will come next week, when a team from the UN's International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will travel to North Korea to discuss a proposal to start an air route between the Pyongyang and Incheon, South Korea, Anthony Philbin, the agency's communications chief, said late Friday.

Boy Scouts Name Change Looms Now that Girls Allowed to Join
The name change was decided after long and "incredibly fun" deliberations, according to Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh . The name change comes during worsening relations between the Girl Scouts of America and Boy Scouts of America.

National security adviser John Bolton called that report, in The New York Times, "utter nonsense" in a statement Friday. "If they are gone, we will lose proof that the Americans will defend us".

President Donald Trump is touting his administration's tough approaches to North Korea and Iran.

The White House hasn't said whether Trump is willing to place USA troop levels on the negotiating table when he meets with Kim.

The White House is denying a published report that President Donald Trump is seeking options to reduce the US troop presence on the Korean peninsula. "Much of the reason they are staying here will be gone".

North Korea readjusted its time zone to match South Korea's on Saturday and described the change as an early step toward making the longtime rivals "become one" following a landmark summit.

"Pyongyang Time" was created as tensions between the authoritarian country and the US grew over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program and worldwide sanctions aimed at dismantling it.

For many in the region, giving up that protection is an unsettling prospect, even if peace comes to the peninsula.
