'One-time shot' for peace with North Korea

Trump and Kim will hold their historic meeting on Sentosa, off Singapore's main island, while Trump will reportedly stay in the five-star Shangri-La.

"It's unknown territory in the truest sense but I really feel confident", Trump said as he prepared to leave the ongoing G7 summit in Canada.

"He could take that nation with those great people and truly make it great, so it's a one-time, it's a one-time shot, and I think it's going to work out very well", Trump said.

As he looks to the Kim meeting, Trump is taking a high-stakes risk in hopes of containing the increasingly challenging national security threats from North Korea's advanced nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Trump acknowledged uncertainty around the highly anticipated summit, saying he was bolstered by discussions in the run-up to the meeting and would not guarantee a specific outcome from the talks. The level of concern is higher, though, in Japan, another USA treaty ally in Asia with much at stake.

When Mr Trump dramatically pulled out of the summit - angered by North Korea calling his vice-president "stupid" - Mr Kim's nearly comically sized letter played a part in the optics of rapprochement. But if not, "at least we'll have met each other, we'll have seen each other; hopefully, we'll have liked each other".

Each year, talented North Korean refugees living in South Korea vie for a scholarship to study English as part of 22-week intensive course run by the University of Technology Sydney.

"I'm glad to say that as of now, it's all systems go".


North Korea has rejected giving up its arsenal unilaterally and defends its nuclear and missile programs as a deterrent against what it sees as US aggression.

"As far as the "economic aid" advertised by the U.S.is concerned, the DPRK has never expected it", the article said, using the initials for the North's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. (South Korea Presidential Blue House/Yonhap via AP) Kristof credits the South Korean president for deftly handling both sides.

On the North Korea summit: "I'll be on a mission of peace, and we will carry in, really - in my heart, we're going to be carrying the hearts of millions of people, people from all over the world". For years Trump has complained about the US bearing too much of the burden for other countries' security, and as president he's sought to pull troops from Syria and other locations.

The participating leaders "traded barbs" over the topical issue of Trump's new metal tariffs, with many of them critical of the protectionist move, according to Nishimura. "I think within the first minute, I'll know", Trump said of the scheduled Tuesday meeting in Singapore. Global relations researcher Shawn Ho said hosting high-profile events could open Singapore up to negative publicity.

To achieve the goal of reconciliation and Korean integration, he needs the US-North Korea summit to take place.

"It's a one time shot, and I think it's going to work out very well", Trump said in a wide-ranging press conference Saturday.

"Here we were, 60 miles outside of New York City, with rifles", said Peter Ticktin, a lawyer in Florida, who was in his class. China - North Korea's only ally - has long pushed for dialogue between Washington and Pyongyang.

If it were a protracted process, Trump would stop enforcing sanctions against Pyongyang, and South Korea and China would return to unconditional subsidization of the Kim regime, Lee said.
