Trump also dumped his vice-president Mike Pence and his National Security Adviser John Bolton from the 90-minute Oval office meeting with the North Korean visitor who is technically banned from visiting the US.

"We're getting along, so it's not a question of maximum pressure", Trump said.

Trump said after meeting with a senior North Korean official at the White House that the summit will go ahead in Singapore to discuss the dismantlement of the North's nuclear weapons program. Kim's to letter to Moon was personally delivered by Kim's sister who attended the Olympics as a special envoy and was covered by a blue folder emblazoned with a golden seal. But eventually the president confessed that he hasn't opened the envelope yet.

In the latest sign of hostility cooling down but hopes kept in check, Trump said he had unilaterally put a hold on hundreds of new sanctions against the North, without Kim's government even asking.

Mr Trump said the June 12 meeting would be "a beginning".

Kim Yong-chol, the top North Korean to enter the White House in almost two decades, traveled from NY following two days of meetings with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on a possible summit between their leaders.

"For these situations to work, you have to not want the deal too much", McConnell said. "Can you believe we're talking the ending of the Korean War?" "Because, if the nuclear talks go well, I think the natural, sort of logical step we can expect is there might be some type of dialogue for normalizing relations, or at least improving ties between Washington and Pyongyang, and in the process, I think the North Korean human rights issue will be raised". "Not from one meeting", Trump told reporters. The Fullerton was North Korea's lodging of choice, The Washinton Post said.

U.S. officials now expect the summit to go ahead, but they want Pyongyang to accept that nuclear disarmament be at the heart of the discussion - and warn there can be no end to sanctions without it. No, I don't see that happening.

Independent political analyst Dan Glazebrook told RT that Trump may not actually be interested in seeking a diplomatic resolution, but is only looking for an excuse to employ tough measures.

Singapore's defense minister Ng Eng Hen on Saturday told reporters the small yet rich city-state in Southeast Asia is open to pitching in to cover some expenses for the summit.

Citing two people familiar with the talks, the Post reported that the U.S. is open to covering the costs, but is considering asking the host country, Singapore, to foot the bill.

"You have to not want the deal too much".

He was in Singapore to meet the U.S. planning team led by White House deputy chief of staff Joe Hagin to work out logistics for the summit.

No date for the visit was mentioned by the North Korea's KCNA news agency.

But a particularly awkward logistical issue remains unresolved, according to two people familiar with the talks.
