Kim summit expected to go ahead June 12: White House

The paper claimed North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's nuclear-tipped missiles are an "existential threat" to the US and warned that Moon risks weakening the impact of global sanctions "designed to inflict enough economic pain that North Korea would agree to give up its nuclear weapons completely".

The upcoming meeting heightens expectations for an unprecedented summit between US President Donald Trump and the North Korean leader in Singapore in June. He is the highest-level representative from the North to set foot in the United States since 2000.

The summit, originally planned for June 12 in Singapore, has been cast in doubt as the two countries - which have technically been at war since the 1950s - test each other's diplomatic mettle.

Washington wants North Korea to quickly give up all its nuclear weapons in a verifiable way in return for sanctions and economic relief.

Kim Yong Chol arrived minutes later and was also accompanied by an aide.

The Trump administration is believed to have granted him a temporary waiver this time to allow him to visit NY, where North Korea has a diplomatic mission to the United Nations.

Kim Yong Chol is a powerful surrogate for Kim Jong Un.

Kim held two meetings with Xi in March and May in China and two others with South Korean President Moon Jae In in Panmunjeom in April and May.

-North Korea summit, the White House said.

"I can say that the differences in stances between North Korea and the USA remain quite significant", Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon said Wednesday in a speech in Seoul, according to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency.

Moscow said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov would travel to North Korea on Thursday to discuss Pyongyang's nuclear program.

Trump announced that Kim Yong-chol was coming to NY for talks with Pompeo in a tweet on Tuesday in which he said he had a "great team" working on the summit.

On Sunday, US negotiators, headed by Washington's ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, began meeting North Korean counterparts in the truce village of Panmunjom that divides the two Koreas.

Earlier in the day, the White House left open the possibility of a Trump-Kim summit on June 12 in Singapore, despite Trump's cancellation of the meeting just days ago.

At the same time, the Central Intelligence Agency analysis mentioned by the officials reportedly notes the possibility of a "Western hamburger franchise" opening in Pyongyang as one of the concessions the North Korean leadership may be willing to make to the United States.

A Blue House official was sent to Singapore, Yonhap reported Wednesday, raising speculation that Moon was preparing to make his way there to pursue a trilateral meeting with Trump and Kim Jong Un.

Hitoshi Tanaka, a former deputy foreign affairs minister, has also urged the USA to understand the importance of trust in Asian cultures as it pushes for a deal to remove Pyongyang's nuclear weapons.

North Korea denied any involvement in the attack on the ship and on Sony Pictures.

North Korea and the US are still technically at war and have no diplomatic ties because the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty.
