White House says 'powerful' sanctions to remain on North Korea

White House says 'powerful' sanctions to remain on North Korea

Putin also said that the global community should help North Korea with its economic development and guarantee Kim's safety in exchange for the abandonment of Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced the venue of the highly anticipated summit on Twitter Tuesday, adding that "We thank our great Singaporean hosts for their hospitality".

Giuliani, the president's lawyer, said Trump pulled the plug on the meeting with Kim on May 24 because top North Korean officials insulted top administration officials.

Trump aims to persuade the North Korean dictator to give up his country's nuclear arsenal in exchange for relief from US economic sanctions.

That is certainly the case for the Capella Hotel in Singapore, which was chosen as the location for talks between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

North Korea defends its nuclear and missile programs as a deterrent against perceived USA aggression.

The former NY mayor, now Trump's legal adviser, said there was no choice but to cancel the summit after Kim Jong Un insulted the vice president and threatened nuclear war.

The June 12 meeting will be the first meeting between sitting leaders of each country and will focus on North Korea's provocative nuclear weapons programs.

Nobel Prize winning anti-nuclear campaign group ICAN has offered to pay for the cost of the historic summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump, including the hotel bill for the impoverished state's leader.

Two people familiar with the relationship between Pompeo and Bolton said Pompeo is skeptical of Bolton and does not trust his views on dealing with North Korea.

Trump said on Friday the summit he had cancelled the previous week was back on after he received the North Korean delegation bearing a letter from Kim.

The Fullerton was North Korea's lodging of choice, the Washington Post has reported.

The summit is due to be held following a rapid detente between Pyongyang and Washington - as well as South Korea - in a turn-around from a dramatic escalation of tensions previous year, when the North ratcheted up its weapons programme.
