North Korea talks moving 'more quickly than expected'

Choi Ho-chul, a 73-year-old former bank employee, said he doubts the North would give up nuclear weapons, which he said were a "means to control its population".

DPRK is the acronym for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's formal name.

Despite the initial high stakes of a meeting meant to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons, the talks have been portrayed by Trump in recent days more as a get-to-know meeting.

Secretary of State Mike PompeoMichael (Mike) Richard PompeoNew Arab Gulf council reflects shift in strategy, leadership Trump, Kim arrive in Singapore ahead of Tuesday summit By law, Trump must discuss human rights with Kim MORE told reporters in Singapore on Monday that the USA will only accept the "complete and verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

The other countries at the G-7 summit, however, rallied to Mr. Trudeau's support.

He has also dined with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in NY. "I'm unconcerned about our capacity to continue to do what we need to do".

In return, he said, "we will take actions to provide them sufficient certainty that they can be comfortable that denuclearization is not something that ends badly for them", Pompeo said.

Pompeo spoke as top officials from the two countries continued negotiations in Singapore ahead of the meeting between Trump and Kim.

"It's about attitude", Trump said.

Even though the big meeting isn't on the schedule until Tuesday in Singapore, there were still plenty of interesting developments over the course of the first full day that President Donald Trump has been in the city.

"Kim can authorize or approve a missile strike while he is away", Madden said.

"The South can not simply afford to take care of the North economically", she said. He credits his administration's "maximum pressure" campaign with getting Kim to the table.

Kim is expected to stay at the St Regis hotel and Trump at the Shangri-La, both in the Tanglin area in downtown Singapore.

But Pompeo has refused to answer reporters' questions about whether the two governments had reached agreement on how to define denuclearization, and how it might play out.

North Korea has said it is willing to commit to denuclearisation, but that term is open to interpretation.

Pompeo said these guarantees would be "different and unique" from what the United States has been willing to provide before. "We now know they have a pretty good track record in these negotiations - a flawless track record of cheating every time, so that's the context we now face".

Delegates were outlining specific goals for what Trump and Kim should try to accomplish and multiple scenarios for how key issues can be resolved, an official briefed on the discussions said.

It's not just the logistics of Kim's trip that are unclear.
