North Korea 'replaces top three military officials'

Singapore on Tuesday added its southern resort island of Sentosa to a special event area designated for next week's summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the government said.

Last week, the South's presidential Blue House sent an official to Singapore, fuelling speculation that the aide might be preparing for a meeting involving the three leaders.

North Korea is still technically at war with both South Korea and the United States - Pyongyang sees the latter as the biggest threat to its government. The other is a more exclusive document for the president that includes a biography of the foreign leader assembled by the US intelligence community.

But even the suggestion of Assad's outreach to North Korea is certain to ripple through White House efforts to define an agenda for the planned June 12 summit in Singapore between Trump and Kim. The president also showed unusual politeness, seeing Kim Yong-chol, a former spy chief, off as he departed in a auto. Preparations are also underway for Foreign Minister Taro Kono's visit to Washington and a meeting with U.S. State Secretary Mike Pompeo on Wednesday.

USA and North Korean delegations got together four times at Capella Hotel last week to plan the summit, and choosing a venue for the meeting was their top priority, according to CNN.

The U.S. leader has in the past called for a quick denuclearization process but after his talks with the top North Korean official on Friday he said "Take your time". They held a fifth round of talks Monday.




Ri did come to a dinner hosted by President Moon Jae-in and his wife Kim Jung-sook after the inter-Korean summit in April and made a favorable impression. In Beijing, he had a summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping, rekindling dampened diplomatic relations between the two neighboring countries.

"Congressional support can facilitate better implementation of the agreement and provide more assurance that the USA will continue to abide by it even after administrations change", Davenport said.

The gold, silver and nickel-plated medallions feature an engraving of the flags of the USA and North Korea, the date and location of the summit, and a handshake.

Last week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov visited Kim in Pyongyang, opening the possibility of a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The New York Post reported Tuesday that Rodman will be traveling to Singapore to attend the summit between Kim and President Donald Trump.

Meanwhile Trump has promised to "transform" the rogue state after a meeting with the dictator's right-hand man, Kim Yong Choi. Trump said later that day that the Singapore meeting was back on.
