Trump says USA and N. Korea talking at 'extremely high levels'

Trump Backtracks On TPP Renewal

With Wednesday's talks likely to focus on trade, and Mr. Trump already indicating he was no longer interested in returning to the multilateral TPP, analysts said Mr. Abe might be forced to engage in two-way discussions as South Korea has already done. The question is, will Prime Minister Shinzo Abe find himself in the bunker or on the green when he meets U.S. President Donald Trump this week? The meeting will be the third inter-Korean summit since the Koreas' 1945 division.

The U.S. itself is pushing for the release of three Americans.

Cities in northern Europe where North Korean officials attended quickly arranged meetings stay under consideration, as well as locations in Southeast Asia, where both the United States and North Korea retain embassies. -North Korea talks would be held "earlier than I thought".

In fact, the significance of such a one-on-one outing may be greater than ever now that Abe's once-lauded close ties with Trump are in serious doubt. Of Pompeo's visit, a spokesman for the South Korean President's office said it was "inappropriate" for the government to comment.

The official visit began Tuesday afternoon as an honor cordon of uniformed service members lined the palm-fringed drive to the club.

The US President later confirmed through a tweet that Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo, who is awaiting confirmation as Secretary of State, met Mr Kim in North Korea last week.

The two men are also expected to discuss the "maximum pressure" campaign on North Korea ahead of Trump's expected meeting with Kim Jong Un this spring.

The first lady was all smiles as she and the president walked hand in hand to their dinner with Japan's leader.

This is part of an all-day summit at Trump's Mar-a-Lago hotel in Palm Beach.

Trump and Abe are both avid golfers and played past year at another Trump course in Jupiter. Numerous leaders want to be here.

Abe also said he had secured a commitment from Trump to raise with Kim the issue of Japanese abductees, one of his top policy priorities.

Pyongyang has acknowledging abducting 13 Japanese, while Tokyo maintains North Korea abducted 17.

"I fear that Japan may be pushed toward getting into talks about a bilateral agreement", said Jun Saito, a senior research fellow at the Japan Center for Economic Research.

The idea of the United States rejoining was received with guarded optimism in Japan.
