South and North Koreas Prepare for Summit

South and North Koreas Prepare for Summit

Then, on Wednesday, Mr Trump accused China of undermining U.S. efforts to pressure North Korea into giving up its nuclear weapons.

"The special envoy will discuss a wide range of issues, including the specific date for the South-North Korea summit, development of the South-North Korean relationship, denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the establishment of peace on the Korean Peninsula", the Cheong Wa Dae spokesman told a press briefing.

Trump said last week that he would "most likely" meet Kim again, depending on how faithfully he implements his commitment to denuclearize.

The trip on Wednesday comes amid growing worry over the slow pace of getting North Korea to end its nuclear program following President Donald Trump's landmark Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in June.

South Korea said on Friday it will dispatch special envoys to the North Korean capital on 5 September to discuss the timing of a summit between the two countries' leaders expected to take place later in the month.

And Sarri, whose side host Bournemouth on Saturday, expects his gifted youngster to eventually emerge with Chelsea as well. Sarri added: "It's not easy to play here, because here there are 25 very good players.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in seems to be seeking co-operation with North Korea to build better relations and de-escalate tension on the Korean peninsula. "If he does, they will be bigger than before".

"North Korea is under tremendous pressure from China because of our major trade disputes with the Chinese Government", Mr Trump said in a series of tweets.

"I've had a good relationship with Kim Jong Un and I'm not saying it won't change", Mr Trump said in the interview. "We got back our hostages".

Last week USA president Donald Trump abruptly called off a visit to Pyongyang by his secretary of state and his own newly named special envoy for North Korea, complaining of a lack of progress in denuclearisation talks.

The Cluster Munition Coalition, an NGO dedicated to the eradication of these weapons, told United Nations officials on Thursday that North Korea acquired many of its cluster bombs after the collapse of the Soviet Union, but has since continued to manufacture them, according to the South Korean outlet Yonhap, citing Radio Free Asia. One official noted it is much easier to cancel an exercise than it is to put one together quickly.
