A one time shot, Trump says of summit with N Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has only said he's willing to discuss the idea, but hasn't made any firm promises to do so.

Kim has the "opportunity the likes of which, almost, if you look into history, very few people have ever had", Trump said.

The tests came amid a campaign of "maximum pressure", led by the United States, that tightened economic sanctions against North Korea and raised the possibility of military action.

"For people like my father, they could go back to their homeland to their birthplace and revisit the country, so positive things like that will happen".

"I personally don't believe in further shutting out North Korea from the rest of the world, and feel cultural exchange and dialogue - even through something as basic as tourism - is extremely important in better understanding each other", he said. In doing so, officials need to follow the law and appreciate that the issues at hand are not just North Korea's nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, but its gulags of work camps and torture rooms - not to mention its abject failure to provide its citizens with adequate housing, food, health and child care, education, or other basic human needs. May not. But I think I'll know pretty quickly whether or not in my opinion something positive will happen. Trump said what matters more is the "attitude" he and Kim have going into the meeting.

Hundreds of North Korean security experts have no doubt been up nights wondering how to safeguard Kim Jong Un since Trump shocked the world by accepting the North's invitation to meet.

"The people of Canada are wonderful, and it's a great country, and a very attractive country".


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 US nuclear negotiator with the North, who also noted that "as a practical matter, China has to be there". (Jennifer Barr/CBC) North Korea has remained publicly silent, leaving the White House to set the stage and manage expectations about the summit. Before he left Donald Trump said he would know in the first minute if Mr Kim was serious about the talks.

He said the police officers who stopped him at Singapore's Changi Airport searched his bags and questioned him for about two hours before letting him go.

"And so not only Japan, but South Korea, China - I imagine many nations will want to participate in the North Korean economy if we are successful in Singapore", he said.

The 65-year-old wants reunification to be his legacy and was elected in part on the promise of taking South Korea in that direction.

"If a breakthrough is achieved, if peace comes, there will be a bountiful harvest, primarily of course within the Korean Peninsula but indeed for all the rest of us", he said. "But I think it will take a little bit of time".

Trump expressed frustration that some analysts have said Kim already has bested him simply by getting him to agree to a summit, noting that the regime released three American prisoners last month.
