What To Expect From Friday's Summit Between North And South Korea

North, South Korean Leaders to Meet at Border for Summit
Geologists say North Korea's nuclear test site has collapsed

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday said he is considering three or four dates as well as five locations for his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, adding that it remains unclear whether the meeting will occur.

Kim Yo-jong's addition to the North Korean delegation points to her growing stature in the wake of her appearance at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in February where she spearheaded the North's charm offensive and became the first member of her family to visit South Korea.

A study published last month by the journal, authored by a team led by Liu Junqing at the natural disaster bureau in Jilin province along the border with North Korea, found similar results of the September 3 explosion.

However, the North stopped short of suggesting it will give up its nuclear weapons or scale back its production of missiles and their related components.

Former South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun gave Kim Jong Il a DVD set of Tae Jang Geum (a 54-episode drama) with the autograph of the lead actress, Lee Young-ae.

South Korean President Kim Dae-jung travelled to Pyongyang to meet Kim Jong-il.

The two will be escorted by South Korean honor guards to an official welcoming ceremony before beginning official dialogue at 10:30 a.m. (0130 GMT) at Peace House, a South Korean building inside the border truce village of Panmunjom. If Moon can do that, it can help Kim and Trump lay out a denuclearization road map when they meet in May or June.

Major media outlets reported on April 25, 2018 that large portions of North Korea's underground nuclear test facility had collapsed and were unusable.

Panmunjom is about 50km north of Seoul and the site of the signing of the armistice that ended fighting in 1953 - but not the war, which technically continues to this day.

The parents of U.S. college student Otto Warmbier sued North Korea on Thursday over their son's death in 2017 following his release from captivity there, according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court.

The inter-Korean summit should not serve as some sort of precursor to a U.S.

In the short term, the sceptical argument goes that if the North can dangle disarmament in a series of meetings that follows these two summits, it could win more time - and an easing of crippling sanctions - to push forward in perfecting its weapons, while also collecting aid and concessions for nuclear promises that will never be met. "The reporting has been mostly hot garbage", Jeffrey Lewis, a nuclear expert at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, tweeted after reviewing satellite imagery of the 7,200-foot Mount Mantap, where North Korea's Punggye-ri test site is located. He wants something big to celebrate this year. "He wasn't supposed to meet with Kim Jong Un but he did", he told Fox and Friends.

Kim must realize this is the last chance for survival.

North Korean nuclear tests have caused seismic events in Chinese border towns and cities, forcing evacuations of schools and offices, sparking fears of wind-born radiation and leading to a backlash among some Chinese against their country's unpredictable traditional ally.

South Korea acknowledged yesterday that the most hard part of the summit will be negotiating North Korea's level of denuclearisation commitment. He will have to offer Kim a palatable deal.

As Moon and Kim leave the banquet, they will watch a video projected on the side of the Peace House, portraying the past, present and future of the Korean Peninsula.

It's not clear whether Kim Jong Un's wife, Ri Sol Ju, will also make the high-stakes trip.
