Trump announces date, location of his meeting with N.Korean leader

Trump announces date, location of his meeting with N.Korean leader

A full withdrawal of US troops was unlikely, the officials said, according to the paper.

"China is willing to work together with the South and North Korean sides as well as with the global community and to play a relevant positive role in promoting the process of political settlement and ultimately in achieving lasting peace in the region", the president said.

Speaking to reporters Friday from the White House South Lawn before departing for Dallas, Trump says "we now have a date and we have a location".

The meeting was suggested and provisionally agreed in March, after a South Korean delegation met Mr Kim in Pyongyang and later visited the White House.

Other possible sites reportedly include Singapore, Mongolia and Switzerland.

The moves are helping to ease tensions on the peninsula and bring at least a temporary end to Pyongyang's testing of nuclear weapons, which was conducted in defiance of United Nations resolutions.

The White House is denying a published report that President Donald Trump is seeking options to reduce the US troop presence on the Korean peninsula.

"No. No. And we havent been asked to", he said in response to a question.

He had to make a couple big pad saves on Crosby and Guenzel early on, shots that could've shifted the tone of Game 2 in a hurry. The Capitals received plenty of secondary scoring and other key contributions from their bottom-six forwards against Columbus.

"A lot of things have already happened with regard to the hostages", Trump said. But troops are not on the table. "You know, we have 32,000 troops there".

National security adviser John Bolton, who was due to meet his South Korean counterpart Chung Eui-yong in Washington on Friday, called the Times report "utter nonsense".

The White House hasn't said whether Trump is willing to place US troop levels on the negotiating table when he meets with Kim.

The U.S. President also denied a recent report from the New York Times which claimed he was considering reducing the number of U.S. troops in South Korea. "As I said yesterday, stay tuned", Trump said, referring to an earlier tweet on the issue that has also weighed on U.S.

The time difference has actually complicated interactions between North and South Korea.

The ministry stated that Moon expressed his readiness to continue working toward a peaceful solution for Korean crisis by means of dialogue and negotiations.
