Korea's Kim heads for historic summit with Moon

Korea's Kim heads for historic summit with Moon

Moon shook hands with his North Korean counterpart, telling him: "I am happy to meet you".

With President Trump planning to meet with the North Korean dictator in a matter of weeks, the timing of the suit is noteworthy, if not largely symbolic.

Asked what he meant by "honorable", Trump told a reporter he hopes the talks will result in North Korea ending its nuclear weapons program. He will, however, remain within the Demilitarised Zone.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, could have large implications for U.S. diplomatic efforts as President Donald Trump prepares to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the hopes of denuclearizing the hostile country.

Both previous South-North summits, in 2000 and 2007, took place in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang.

North Korea claimed that Warmbier had contracted botulism but his physicians in the USA found no evidence of that, according to the lawsuit which says that the North's false explanations for Otto's condition demonstrate that is it "covering up its torture and mistreatment of Otto while he was in North Korean custody".

North Korean roads are often bumpy and poorly maintained. The move was welcomed by the US and South Korea as a positive step, although Chinese researchers have indicated that North Korea's nuclear test site may be unusable after a rock collapse following its last test in September.

Most anticipated of all is the possible signing of a peace treaty to formally mark the end of the Korean War - a conflict placed on hold by an armistice dating from 1953 but whose seemingly intractable nature has maintained a state of persistent near-war between Pyongyang and Seoul. "Out of respect for the Warmbier family, we have no further comment", a US State Department official said.

Every detail of the summit has been precisely planned - from the timetable to the dinner menu.

The two leaders were escorted along a red carpet by a traditional South Korean honor guard to a square located between the Freedom House and the Peace House, a venue for formal talks between the two leaders.

Minutes before Kim entered Peace House, a North Korean security team conducted a sweep for explosives and listening devices, and sprayed apparent disinfectant in the air, on the chairs, and on the guest book.

Following the tree planting, they will walk together before starting the next round of talks. Who is the most legitimate ruler of the Korean peninsula?

"Just days before the summit, Kim said North Korea would suspend nuclear and long-range missile tests and dismantle its only known nuclear test site".

The White House released two photographs of then Secretary of State-designate and Central Intelligence Agency chief Mike Pompeo's meeting with Kim in North Korea over the Easter weekend to discuss the planned summit.

"The North Koreans have said the U.S. can maintain forces on the Peninsula, but once a peace settlement is signed, I'm expecting the North Koreans to insist that those forces be dramatically reduced in size and posture changed to a peacekeeping role".

Pyongyang staged almost a dozen missile tests since Moon took office in May 2017, while also conducting its sixth and most powerful nuclear test in September.

South Korea's delegation is comprised of seven officials, including the ministers for defense, foreign affairs and unification.
