North Korea's Kim visiting China on June 19-20 - state media

It was the first-ever summit between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

They will also hold a friendly basketball match - proposed by Kim, a fan of the sport, at his summit with Moon - in Pyongyang on July 4 and another in Seoul in the autumn.

South Korea and Japan are both market economies, democracies and U.S. allies and both are threatened by nuclear-armed North Korea, but their relationship is severely strained by historical and territorial issues. Posing for photos while shaking hands with Kim, US President said, "we will have a terrific relationship no doubt".

Early a year ago, China suggested a way to defuse the escalating tensions on the Korean Peninsula: North Korea would stop its nuclear and missile tests, while the US and South Korea would stop their joint military drills.

Trump, on Twitter, said, "Funny how the Fake News" - Trump's term for news stories he doesn't like - "in a coordinated effort with each other, likes to say I gave sooo much to North Korea because I 'met.' That's because that's all they have to disparage!"

According to North Korean state media on Monday, Kim sent a "congratulatory letter and floral basket" along with his "warmest congratulations and comradely greeting to respected Comrade Xi Jinping" to celebrate his 65th birthday.

Sweeping exaggerations about policy efficacy has become a sticking point of the Trump administration and based on this report, that hasn't changed, even on the global stage. North Korea proposed the disarming, on a trial basis, the Joint Security Area in Panmunjom, the only site in the DMZ where both countries' soldiers stand nearly face to face, the South's presidential spokesman said on Friday.

Others think that he’ll continue to use the picks himself and construct a young core that can emerge after the Cavaliers vs. Fultz is an ideal scoring guard to run alongside him, and can also take over point guard duties if the Simmons experiment fails.

In 1954, the U.S. -led U.N. Command started the Focus Lens exercise.

Meanwhile, the US and South Korea have confirmed they have suspended planning for their next joint military drills. That move is seen as potentially weakening defences and diplomatic ties among USA allies in Asia, while bolstering rivals such as China and Russian Federation.

This is the beginning of the process toward the denuclearisation of North Korea.

Some say the one-day summit helped extend a temporary detente on the Korean Peninsula, but others say it was light on substance and Trump made too many concessions to North Korea. Indeed Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, called the idea "insulting" in September, for equating defensive measures with the belligerence of "a rogue regime".

Trump tweaked his political rival Sunday, saying, "Chuck Schumer said 'the Summit was what the Texans call all cattle and no hat.' Thank you Chuck, but are you sure you got that right?"

Glaser said it was predictable Xi would want to be briefed by Kim directly about the North Korean leader's talks with Trump.

China may also have a perception that North Korea may "unleash some massive strategic reorientation" in its policy to join a U.S. coalition against China, Johnson added.
