South Korea was caught off guard by Trump's abrupt cancellation of his summit with Kim, with the USA president citing hostility in recent North Korean comments.
American and North Korean officials met at the border between North and South Korea on Sunday in preparation for a possible North Korea-U.S. summit, as North Korea's Kim Jong Un was cited as reaffirming his commitment to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump. That hasn't changed, and it's moving along pretty well.
"We remain unchanged in our goal and will to do everything we can for peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and humankind, and we, broad-minded and open all the time, have the willingness to offer the USA side time and opportunity".
After this, Bolton predicted, the Kim regime would collapse and the US would waltz in to secure North Korea's nuclear sites. "They are going to be best friends right after this meeting".
Both Pyongyang and Washington are pressing ahead on plans for a meeting between the two leaders after Trump pulled out of the scheduled June 12 summit on Thursday, only to reconsider the decision the next day.
"What Kim is unclear about is that he has concerns about whether his country can surely trust the United States over its promise to end hostile relations", Mr Moon said. That's according to his South Korean negotiating partner, President Moon Jae-in, who met on Kim's request. They've consolidated their strategic nuclear deterrent, they've decided that they can push through with negotiations - not only with the United States but also with South Korea and re-engage China. Since taking power previous year, Moon has sought to facilitate dialogue between Trump and Kim to avoid the possibility of a devastating military conflict on the Korean Peninsula.
Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon said Friday that the government will do its part to faithfully implement the agreement reached by the leaders of the two Koreas last month, despite the USA decision to cancel the highly anticipated summit with the North. And over the last say 48 hours - maybe more - they fear that Donald Trump's administration is going to cancel the summit and that this will lead to a new escalation of tensions and probably war.

They weren't disrespecting the flag or the military, but our president decided to make it about that. Patriotism is loving it enough to sacrifice for it, but also to call it (out) when it's wrong.
The main dispute between the USA and North Korea boils down to how fast Kim should give up his weapons, and what he'll get in return. But he repeatedly refused to answer questions on the specifics of how North Korea would relinquish its nuclear weapons or if they would allow global experts to inspect nuclear facilities.
Libyan dictator Moammar Qaddafi agreed in 2003 to give up his weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear arms, in return for sanctions relief.
"Trump really wants this [the meeting] to happen, because it would look very good to his base, and again it would be something no other president has done".
Abe also said it is necessary to make a US -N.
The Korean leaders' second summit in a month saw bear hugs and broad smiles, but their quickly arranged meeting Saturday appears to highlight a sense of urgency on both sides of the world's most heavily armed border. Worldwide journalists were present, but the USA government can't verify the site's destruction.
Hayden said he agrees with a Republican Sen. "He's willing to park the vehicle for now and then go talk".
The president made the remarks while welcoming the Joshua Holt to the White House. We're talking to them now. The person, who asked not to be identified discussing internal matters, said the "maximum pressure" campaign to strangle North Korea's economy is working, and Kim's regime will have to come to the table eventually.
