Preparations for the summit between Trump and Kim, which is due to be held at a luxury resort on the island of Sentosa, continued this week.
Trump signaled that a grand bargain to reverse decades of enmity is not on the table for his unprecedented meeting Tuesday in Singapore with Kim, but sounded upbeat as he described the North Korean leader as honest about remaking the future for his impoverished country.
"I don't think it's nice going in under those circumstances". I think he would look at it very favorably. It's about the attitude.
"As has the other side..." "Well, it's gonna be much more than a photo-op".
Trump said in their discussions Thursday the Japanese prime minister talked about the abductees issues "long and hard and passionately" and promised that the U.S.
He said the North Korean nuclear issue should have been handled by previous United States administrations, adding: "I'll take care of it".
His meetings were aimed at rallying support from key allies for amending the global nuclear deal with Iran and for pushing Iranian forces out of neighboring Syria. It would be wonderful if it were. They might even make time for a round of golf. "There's a lot of enemies out there, a lot of dislike, a lot of hatred between countries", he continued.
"We could sign an agreement, as you know that would be a first step".
Pompeo added that he would meet with Chinese, Japanese and South Korean officials after the Trump-Kim summit to brief them on any progress made during the talks. "If they don't de-nuclearize, that will not be acceptable. And we can not take sanctions off". The sanctions are extraordinarily powerful. "That's what needs to happen with the Palestinian Authority", he said. "Some people will think other terrorists will come over and we need to protect our country". "So, it's a big difference".

Kane scored England's second goal with a fine finish and linked play with confidence in the final third. It was a decent exercise for us to adjust to that.

A number of those penalties came as the result of breakdowns or just straight-up dumb plays that were avoidable. In postseason failures of yore, this would have been the moment when it all unraveled for Washington.

Forecasters have said Alberto could bring life-threatening high water to southern coastal states when it slams into the US. As we head into the middle parts of this week, remnants of subtropical storm Alberto will impact our area.
"The bonds between our nations are stronger than ever before", Trump said.
If one's favorite sports team was given over to the control of some celebrity with limited knowledge of the sport in question (apart, of course, from watching "the shows") and started to run that team in a manner like that described above, we would all understand what a disaster that would be. "This has been going on for many, many decades".
Pompeo, however, added that the USA would work to guarantee North Korea's security should it denuclearize. Japan has been directly menaced by North Korean missiles fired over its waters and land, and is seen as a primary target because of its decades-long security alliance with the United States and the presence of USA forces on its soil.
United States allies in the region have expressed concern that Trump's push to denuclearise Korea could ignore the North's sophisticated ballistic missile and chemical weapons programs.
The president asserted North Korea must denuclearize, and indicated he will not provide sanctions relief without that happening.
But Mr Trump warned "he was prepared to walk away" if the summit did not go well. Trump would also be attending the G-7 summit after which he would travel to Singapore.
"I hope it continues on this track".
"With ICBMs and nuclear warheads in the hands of North Korea, the situation is far too risky for seat of the trousers negotiating, " Schumer wrote. "Not only Japan, but the whole global community, is strongly looking forward for the United States-North Korea summit to open doors toward peace and stability of the Northeast Asia".
Sputnik: Why is it that some of Trump's senior staffers seem to be doing everything they can to scupper these talks? "We'll see what happens". More than 2,500 people from the local and global news media are expected to cover the event in Singapore, according to the number of registrations received by the ministry of communications and information. In recent weeks, it wasn't clear if the summit would actually take place amid a significant amount of back and forth between Washington and Pyongyang. The North has faced crippling diplomatic and economic sanctions as it has advanced development of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
