Hirono, Duckworth: Trump-Kim Talks a Step in Right Direction But Caution Needed

A successful meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would help stabilize South Korean financial markets and improve sentiment for consumers and investors, South Korea's central bank chief said on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump agreed last week to meet with Kim by May, in what would be the first talks between a sitting United States president and a North Korean leader. A senior USA official said North Korea offered to suspend their nuclear missile testing alongside their invitation for talks.

Asked if there is a chance the meeting won't take place, Sanders told a regular press briefing Monday, "We fully expect that it will".

"I feel they're approaching this matter with caution and they need time to organise their stance". He says that it's in the "very early stages".

Sweden's embassy in Pyongyang represents US, Canadian and Australian diplomatic interests in North Korea and plays a key role in liaising diplomatic talks.

"Talk is certainly better than war", she said.

Tillerson spoke Monday at a news conference in Nigeria.

The Chosun Sinbo, a pro-North Korea publication in Japan that is not directly controlled by Pyongyang but still considered a government mouthpiece, reported the planned U.S.

In a Tweet, Mr Trump said: "If they drop their horrific barriers & tariffs on USA products going in, we will likewise drop ours".

North Korean media have also remained silent on a proposed summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in due to take place at the Panmunjuom border village in the demilitarized zone dividing the two Koreas by the end of April.

US national security adviser H.R. McMaster briefed U.N. Security Council envoys in NY on Monday.

The officials' comments followed the surprise announcement last week that President Donald Trump has agreed to meet the North's Kim Jong Un by May.

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono said after talks with Suh Hoon that Tokyo and Seoul agreed that maximum pressure must be maintained on North Korea until it takes concrete action to address concerns about its weapons programmes.
