'All ready to go' for summit with North Korea, says Donald Trump

U.S. lawmakers want Trump to report on North Korea nuclear program

"The prime minister told me that will happen", Mr Trump said.

"I think it's going to be a very fruitful meeting".

In his previous role as Central Intelligence Agency director, Pompeo told reporters Thursday, "there were few days that I left the Oval Office, after having briefed the president, that we didn't talk about North Korea".

"They have to de-nuke", Trump said of North Korea.

"Yes. if it goes well, I think that could happen", he told reporters during a Rose Garden news conference, taking questions alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Trump has previously promised to raise those cases, which are politically sensitive in Japan, and he made a point Thursday or mentioning the issue in public.

"The hard part is after that". "We would certainly like to see normalization".

Trump said he had talked with the North's envoy on the matter.

Trump said on June 1, "I don't even want to use the term "maximum pressure" anymore" regarding North Korea.

Trump also hinted that he and Kim Jong-Un could sign an agreement to end the Korean War at their meeting.

In a bold break with diplomatic convention, President Trump is heading into a high-stakes summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Tuesday without a completed deal on the table. "What he did was he called off the summit", he said.

North Korea defends its nuclear and missile programmes as a deterrent against what it sees as United States aggression.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday re-emphasised Washington's stance going into the talks.

Mr. Klingner echoed the Korea hawks at the White House who oppose any USA concession prior to a ironclad commitment from Pyongyang to comply with United Nations resolutions demanding comprehensive, verifiable, irreversible dismantling of the nuclear weapons program, known as CVID in diplomatic circles.

Trump said that this is something that should have been handled many years ago by other presidents.

"I took him as being in a small room and not being serious about the comments", Pompeo said during a briefing at the White House.

Trump added that sanctions on North Korea remain in place.

"He has also discussed [possibly] golfing with Kim", one official said.

"He has indicated to me personally that he's prepared to denuclearize".

Pompeo said he was confident the president would be fully prepared and dismissed reports of division inside Trump's foreign policy team over the decision to embrace the meeting with Kim.

Asked whether the two sides had narrowed their differences on how they defined denuclearisation, Pompeo said they had, but he declined to give details.

Japan wants progress on the abductees to be given the same weight as demands over North Korea's nuclear and missile programs in Trump's negotiations with Kim.

So we've heard a lot already about how Rudy Giuliani's comments might throw the summit between President Trump and Kim Jon Un into question, do you think that's possible or just exaggeration?
