United States confirms NK willingness to discuss denuclearization

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.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is ready to taking nuclear weapons off the peninsula when he sits down with President Trump this spring, according to a report.

USA and North Korean officials have reportedly been trying to nail down a location for the summit, with the North Koreans pushing for Pyongyang and the Americans calling for a more neutral location, like Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia.

Officials said the current target is late May or even June, according to CNN.

A summit between Kim and President Donald Trump is anticipated in May.

Analysts echoed that the efforts show that the U.S. intelligence agencies are taking the lead for summit preparations, but expressed skepticism whether such moves were headed by the North's Reconnaissance General Bureau, which deals with clandestine operations against South Korea.

Before the pancreas and the bile duct were removed, patients underwent confocal microscopy for live tissue imaging. The researchers observed a net-like structure surrounding fluid-filled spaces around the bile duct.

In addition to back-channel discussions, American and North Korean officials have also met in a third country to hammer out the specifics for the unprecedented summit, CNN reported.

"It's a natural step in the right direction".

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. The representatives of the U.S. and North Korea have already met in a third country. It is more likely that the North's United Front Department would be in charge... We'll see what happens. South Korean President Moon Jae-in plans to meet with Kim at the end of April in the demilitarised zone between the North and South.

South Korean emissaries, in a visit to the White House last month, had presented Kim's invitation to meet with Trump, who quickly agreed.

Working-level officials need to determine how Kim would arrive at the southern side of the border village for the summit.
