He then delivered President Moon's gratitude for Trump's support for the progress made with North Korea and said the special envoys' visit was primarily meant to convey South Korea's desire for Seoul and Washington to move forward in total cooperation.

Abe called for close cooperation between Japan and South Korea and the United States.

"We are looking forward to the smooth holding of the summit meeting between the two Koreas and the dialogue between North Korea and the U.S. and achieving concrete progress in promoting the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and the normalisation of relations between each other", Xi said.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the US expects North Korea to be in direct touch after President Donald Trump agreed to Kim Jong Un's invitation to meet, urging patience as preparations for the potentially historic handshake are worked out.

"It's very early stages", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters Monday in Abuja, Nigeria, on a swing through Africa, when asked about plans for the meeting, expected in May.

"There were agreements between the USA and North Korea to open up discussion on a peace treaty, but they never materialized", Koh said, saying the conditions were key.

The White House will convene a meeting Tuesday to discuss preparations, an administration official said. Tillerson says China "is going to have a stake in how this all this all turns out". It has continued to warn the United States and Japan against war-mongering, but its rhetoric has been tame compared with threats exchanged at the height of tensions previous year.

"We have not seen nor received an official response from the North Korean regime regarding the North Korea-U.S. summit", said Baik Tae-hyun, spokesman for South Korea's Unification ministry. Trump has vowed to prevent that, by force if necessary.

Levine called the accusations "unfounded", saying in a statement that "I have not lived my life as an oppressor or an aggressor". The Met says claims its management or board had covered up information of Levine's conduct were unsubstantiated.


At the same time, another delegation headed to Tokyo to meet Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe about the proposed talks, which will focus on North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes. The North's main newspaper, the Rodong Sinmun, which is run by the ruling party, had only put out a few paragraphs about a visit by senior South Korean officials last week.

The stakes are high if this summit goes awry, analysts say, particularly if North Korea responds by resuming missile or nuclear testing.

"Go Go Sisters" is the Vietnamese version of "Sunny", which attracted 7.45 million viewers in South Korea during its theatrical run in 2011.

The U.S. military now keeps about 28,000 soldiers and other armed forces members in South Korea. "Once again, we expect that China will continue to play an active and leading role and the South Korean government will continue to coordinate closely with China".

The report by the Korea Institute for Industrial Economics and Trade (KIET) said there is a chance that Seoul may be able to win Washington's next generation trainer jet program, while orders generated by so-called offset deals could push up overall numbers. "The offer was made and we accepted", she said, noting that Pyongyang made several promises ahead of the meeting.

"The experts have been trying to solve North Korea for 20 years and it's only gotten worse, so if the smart people can't do it, why not try Trump?"

"I'm very anxious about that happening again and I would hope that this administration understands that", he said.
