Kim Jong-Un insists to meet with Trump in Pyongyang

039;Sweden Mongolia Offer Venue for N. Korea-US Summit'

The confirmation on Sunday evening, United States time, offers the administration greater assurances that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is committed to a potential meeting with President Donald Trump by the end of next month.

CNN on Saturday quoted multiple government officials familiar with the discussions as saying that the talks are a sign that planning for the highly anticipated meeting is progressing.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo and a team of officials have been meeting with their North Korean counterparts to come up with a location for the meeting.

Regarding scepticism in Washington on the possibility of the North dismantling its nukes, Adams said the North Korean leader has asserted his willingness to denuclearize and to refrain from additional nuclear and missile test, and that he understands South Korea-U.S. joint military drills will continue as scheduled.

CNN quoted U.S. officials as saying that the summit will be held at the Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar - a proposal that North Korea has already relayed to the USA, according Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun. CNN reported that North Korea wants to have the meeting in its capital, Pyongyang, and that preparations are under way for a possible meeting between Pompeo and the head of the Reconnaissance General Bureau, North Korea's intelligence agency. Once a location is agreed upon the officials said that the date will be set and the agenda discussed in greater detail.

The prospective summit, which would be an historical first, is likely to take place within weeks - in late May or in June, the officials said.

Both sides have met several times in a third country to determine a location for the historic summit, United States officials told CNN. "It's a good signal that the talks are going back and forth (between the U.S. and North Korea)".

She said the U.S.is deeply concerned about the state of North Korean citizens' well-being.

But Pyongyang has not broken its public silence on the summit, which US officials say is being planned for May.

The 2 Koreas earlier agreed that their leaders will use the hotline before they hold a summit on April 27th.

North Korea was "suffocating" under worldwide sanctions, Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said on Thursday, adding, "They need an out".
