Seoul to closely cooperate with China, Japan to tackle North Korea issue

News of the planned summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sent shock waves around the globe. That session will provide more insight for the Trump-Kim meeting that South Korean National Security Council chief Chung Eui-yong said will take place by May.

Mr Suh is in Tokyo to discuss his recent trip to Pyongyang, during which the two Koreas agreed to hold a summit next month. "We've not heard anything directly back from North Korea but we expect to hear something directly from them", he said during a visit to Nigeria.

The sanctions resolutions ban North Korean exports of commodities and severely restricted shipments of oil and fuel to the isolated state.

China is "on the same page" with Seoul over the issues of the Korean peninsula, President Xi Jinping said on Monday, a spokesman of South Korea's presidential Blue House said.

In the past, North Korea has called for a permanent peace to replace the armistice that ended fighting in the Korean War.

Setting up the meeting between Kim Jong-un and Trump has been a remarkable achievement by Seoul. -South Korean military exercises "a remarkable step forward" and a result of Trump's tough approach.

After a meeting with Kim in Pyongyang last week, a delegation of senior South Korean officials headed to Washington to brief the Americans on the visit.


"In Korea, I'm sticking with Jeju Island". But both his premise and his conclusion are wrong - dangerously wrong and catastrophically risky - and North Korea, through conversations with South Korean officials, reportedly indicated as much this week.

As a child, Kim and his siblings attended an elite private school in Switzerland in the 1990s, according to former classmates there. "I would say remain patient, and we'll see what happens", he said.

It said to further bolster the country's export potential, there is a need to strive for economies of scale to lower unit price, as well as for good coordination between the various government ministries that handle diplomacy, defense and industry.

Sweden's prime minister told reporters on Saturday that the country stands ready to help "in any way".

Mattis wouldn't talk at all about the diplomatic push over North Korea's nuclear program. "North Korea made several promises". For the North Korean leader, this is recognition he has long sought.

Under fire for agreeing to talks with North Korea, the White House responded by warning that no summit would occur unless Pyongyang took "concrete actions" over its nuclear program.

However, Albright's trip in particular was criticised for appearing as an endorsement of a brutal and oppressive regime.
