US President Donald Trump wished North Korea's Kim Jong Un well on Tuesday but stopped short of directly commenting on the reclusive leader's health amid reports he underwent surgery.
North Korean state media published detailed reports on Tuesday of a visit by leader Kim Jong Un to two fisheries, underscoring his drive to build economic independence as negotiations with the United States to lift punishing sanctions soured.
The residents of Japan’s capital were treated to the extraordinary sight of Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un casually dining together, just days before the G20 summit in Osaka, only to realize the pair in question were uncanny lookalikes.
At his first summit with Russia's Vladimir Putin, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un accused the United States of acting in bad faith at their most recent talks, state media in Pyongyang said on Friday.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will visit Russia for a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, North Korean state media confirmed. With his Russia visit, North Korea's Kim is seen working to build up foreign support for his economic development plans, since the breakdown of the second US-North Korea summit in Hanoi in February led to stalled talks with Washington on the sanctions relief Pyongyang had sought.
President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un abruptly cut short their two-day summit on Thursday after the two leaders failed to reach an agreement to dismantle that country’s nuclear weapons. Although Kim said he was ready in principle to denuclearize, he and Trump ended their meetings without sitting for a planned lunch and without participating in a joint signing ceremony.
United States President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will meet for dinner in Hanoi on Wednesday before their previously announced talks the next day, the White House said on Tuesday.
Kim Jong Un declared North Korea's unstinting “friendship, unity and cooperation” with Beijing during his third visit to China this year, in a show of loyalty to his main ally following a landmark summit with US President Donald Trump.
North Korea will not see any economic sanctions lifted until it has demonstrated “complete denuclearisation”, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said. Pompeo was speaking at a press conference in Seoul with his South Korean and Japanese counterparts.
While the world watches the summit between president Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un unfold, another significant event will take place elsewhere in Asia. On June 12 in Taipei, Taiwan and the US will jointly mark the establishment of a new facility for the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), the US’s de facto embassy in the country. Politicians from both nations are attending a ceremony to commemorate the US$ 250 million complex, which will open formally later this year.
