Singapore is 'strongest' candidate to host Trump-Kim summit

Clocks show time in Seoul left and Pyongyang at the Peace House in the demilitarised zone in the border village

According to South Korean media, the historical meeting of U.S. President Donald trump and the leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-UN could be held in June in Singapore. The U.S. leader attempted to visit the Demilitarized Zone by helicopter last November during his visit to the South, but the trip was halted by poor visibility.

Trump told reporters that there would be an announcement soon.

North Korea's state-run media on Monday warned that Pyongyang's "threat" against Washington may be revived should the Trump administration continue to claim that the Panmunjom Declaration is the result of its maximum pressure campaign against the DPRK.

A nuclear-free Korean Peninsula is also a topic at the upcoming trilateral summit among South Korea, Japan and China in Tokyo on Wednesday, when the three countries' leaders are expected to issue a statement.

At the summit, the North agreed to seek the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

The newspaper suggested that the possibility of Singapore hosting the landmark meeting had "increased greatly", after a decision by Trump to host South Korean president Moon Jae-in at the White House later this month, without giving further explanation. North Korea is accusing the USA of "deliberately provoking" it and warning the US not to misinterpret "the peace-loving intention of the DPRK as a sign of weakness".

The singer even left an inspirational note in the fan's journal after promising her a seat at a concert once she's able. Swift brought shirts and sweatshirts from her tour , signed autographs and stayed for about 20 minutes.

The White House said Mr Trump would host Mr Moon at the White House on May 22, in talks aimed at demonstrating allied unity before the summit.

"This act can not be construed otherwise than a risky attempt to ruin the hard-won atmosphere of dialogue and bring the situation back to square one". The president stated that in anticipation of the talk, he has had to restrain himself from making certain comments about Kim Jong Un, particularly restraining from calling him "Rocket Man".

But America will probably still insist Mr Trump's tough stance has been decisive considering just previous year Mr Kim was launching long-range missiles at a record pace.

He added: "Stayed tuned".

The criticism comes weeks before the U.S. "And a lot of things have already happened with respect to the hostages". Mr. Trump hinted the release of Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim was in the offing.

He said the USB, which contained a plan for tens of billions worth of economic development in North Korea including railways and energy, sent the message to Kim: "We're serious about working with you for what we think is your real ambition - to be a wealthy East Asian country".
