Trump apparently sought to offer some reassurances to the North, saying the nuclear deal he had in mind for North Korea was not like any other denuclearization model and that Kim would be "very, very happy" if they reached a deal at their upcoming summit. He recently withdrew the USA from the worldwide Iran-nuclear deal - without outlining a path forward with his allies.
"I think there are questions in both Pyongyang and Washington about how the leaders are connected to their own bureaucracies.Maybe we are seeing evidence of that question even today", said Scott Snyder, the director of the U.S. -Korea policy program at the Council on Foreign Relations, who was also in Seoul for the security-related leadership conference. However, the president also said he believed Kim was "serious" about negotiations, and Moon expressed "every confidence" in Trump's ability to hold the summit and bring about peace.

With the momentum appearing to build, Pompeo extolled the possible economic benefits North Korea might receive from the US once it gave up its weapons.
The biggest problem comes, experts here say, from Mr Trump's fundamental misunderstanding of North Korea's interests. "Our eyes are wide open with respect to the risks".
President Donald Trump labored with South Korea's Moon Jae-in Tuesday to keep the highly anticipated USA summit with North Korea on track after Trump abruptly cast doubt that the June 12 meeting would come off. Setting the stakes sky high, Moon said, "The fate and the future of the Korean Peninsula hinge" on the meeting.
However, uncompromising positions recently voiced by U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton demanding the North's unilateral disarmament, and by North Korea in response canceling further talks with the South and threatening to pull out of the U.S. Eight years later, rebel forces killed him violently, and his demise was on full display for the world to see.

Interview had gone through several overhauls since its birth, with the most drastic shift happening after Warhol's death in 1987. Brant Publications is owned by billionaire Peter Brant , who is a well-known art lover and Warhol fan.
Trump addressed North Korea's abrupt shift on Thursday, saying that "the Libya model isn't the model that we have at all when we're thinking of North Korea", and that Kim would still be "running his country". "His country would be very rich".
The North also threatened to abandon the planned Trump-Kim meeting over US insistence on rapidly denuclearizing the peninsula, issuing a harshly worded statement that the White House dismissed as a negotiating ploy. What the regime probably wants, analysts say, is just an easing of United Nations sanctions so that it can conduct whatever business it wants.
For the North Korea meeting, insiders say, he is motivated by the idea of scoring a historic deal and is tickled by suggestions he could win a Nobel Peace Prize - especially since Barack Obama won the honour early in his presidency. Now, that model would take place if we don't make a deal, most likely.
The back-and-forth on the US messaging underscored new skepticism and confusion about the administration's strategy, and what exactly it wants out of the meeting.
"I don't like that", he said. "It's not that North Korea rejects complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation, but rather they need a tangible promise from Washington in return".
Trump has maintained publicly that his goal is to see the Korean Peninsula denuclearized, and the North has agreed to put its nuclear program on the negotiating table as a condition for the talks. "Not just words and statements but also actions". When asked if his comparison between Libya and North Korea could be perceived as a threat, he responded: "Well, I think it's more of a fact". Kim is on the cusp of making that a reality.
Trump will huddle Tuesday at the White House with South Korean President Moon Jae-in to prepare for the June 12 summit. Several of those advisers, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, were later dismissed. "Unfortunately that isn't the president of the United States".
