Abe Highly Assesses Talks with North on Precondition of Denuclearization

Chinese President Xi Jinping is undoubtedly relieved that the danger of war on China's doorstep that could threaten Chinese security and undermine his national rejuvenation plan has decreased.

The fear of marginalisation in Beijing is palpable.

In a phone call with Trump the day after the announcement of the planned U.S.

The possibility of a meeting made headlines last week when South Korean officials announced a possible summit after meeting with Trump at the White House.

USA student Otto Warmbier died last summer shortly after his release from a 17-month detention.

Among others voicing skepticism of a face-to-face meeting is U.S. Sen.

The potential diplomatic breakthrough follows a series of joint efforts from both South and North Korea at the recent Winter Olympics, marking a minor thaw period for two nations still technically at war.

The writer served in the US State Department for 24 years.

"The reason why [former Presidents] Obama, Bush, Clinton haven't met with North Korean leaders is because they understand that dealing with what is already a nuclear power, a rogue state, no information, incredibly intractable, things can go really badly", Bremmer said. I remember the stir in Colombo during the 1976 Nonaligned Nations' Conference, which I was covering for The Observer in London, as unofficial reports circulated of North Korean soldiers axing to death two US Army officers engaged in a routine operation to cut down trees and clear a portion of the demilitarised zone at Panmunjom.

Mr Chung will fly to Moscow today, as Mr Suh meets Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

'Foreign law firms can't practise in India'
The court rejected the contention that the Advocates Act applies only if a person is practicing Indian law. The Court has also asked BCI and the Central Government to frame necessary rules in this regard.

If new negotiations are launched, China may not have a seat at the table and that prospect is creating anxiety.

"Once again, we expect that China will continue to play an active and leading role and the South Korean government will continue to coordinate closely with China". North Korea is not the centerpiece of our Asia-Pacific strategy. If they gave it to Mr Trump they'd also have to give it to Kim Jong-un, and that would be even sillier. One caveat - Kim is not known to have travelled outside North Korea since he took office in 2011. "So it has to be considered in that overall context, not simply in isolation to the Korean peninsula".

Xi did not say more about the North Korean nuclear crisis, but he said China's relations with South Korea have "maintained a good momentum of improvement".

Officials in Seoul say Pyongyang is keeping them in the dark as well. "The United States has nothing to lose by two leaders sitting down and talking about nuclear disarmament". Beijing may seek to reinsert itself by offering to host the diplomatic talks.

These are happy stories for the world, but the fate of the Afrikaner government is not likely to sell Pyongyang on the virtues of giving up the bomb.

Ensuring that China has a seat at the negotiating table should not be a central USA objective. Beijing will know that the withdrawal of US forces from South Korea if off the table, but not much beyond that.

"What does North Korea mean by the suggestion that it will consider denuclearization as a condition for these talks?" she added.

While we're at it, one hopes the Trump administration will take another look at the idea of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the trade agreement between a dozen Pacific countries who are moving forward despite the USA withdrawal from the accord.

"The offer was made and we've accepted", Sanders said.
