Donald Trump has said he sees a "good chance" of reaching a deal with North Korea on denuclearisation, as senior USA and South Korean officials met to discuss an upcoming second summit between the United States president and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. I think he's also exhausted of going through what he's going through.

Dan Coats, the USA director of national intelligence, told Congress this week that "North Korea is unlikely to give up all of its nuclear weapons and production capabilities".

Although it is uncertain what concrete measures will be taken, Mr. Yun said that closing one of North Korea's largest nuclear plants, Yongbyon, while setting the country back "years", would be a huge step forward for diplomatic relations.

What Happened: The Russian government reportedly made a secret proposal to North Korea in the fall of 2018 to construct a nuclear power plant in the country in exchange for North Korea dismantling its nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, The Washington Post reported January 29, citing unnamed USA officials. "I don't like to take things off the table", Mr Trump said in an interview on CBS's "Face the Nation" that will air on Sunday (Feb 3). "If you remember, before I became president, it looked like we were going to war with North Korea".

With the North under economic penalties and the US unwilling to ease them under the North denuclearizes, Trump said Kim "has a chance to have North Korea be a tremendous economic behemoth. We have a fantastic chemistry", Trump said.

Seoul's Foreign Ministry says Biegun and his South Korean counterpart Lee Do-hoon held consultations about working-level U.S.

And tomorrow, Biegun is expected to sit down with his North Korean counterparts at the inter-Korean truce village of Panmunjeom.

"But there's also a very good chance that we will make a deal".

US President Donald Trump said his administration is "doing very well" on making a trade deal with China ahead of a fast-approaching deadline, and did not rule out another government shutdown or other action to get funding for a US-Mexico border wall. "And if it is a deal it's going to be a real deal".
