Dems: North Korea must prove nukes undone to lift sanctions


"The advanced team in Singapore is finalizing logistical preparations and will remain in place until the summit begins", Sanders said.

The New York Post reported Tuesday that Rodman will be traveling to Singapore to attend the summit between Kim and President Donald Trump.

The US President said the goal for the summit is denuclearising the Korean Peninsula, although the full agenda for the summit is yet to be announced.

Bolton has never expressed much hope for a summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un, and now a growing chorus of experts think he may have tried to sabotage the summit.

The White House late Tuesday night confirmed the selection of the Capella Hotel, located on a resort enclave accessible to Singapore's main island by a single causeway.

"We feel like things are continuing to move forward and good progress has been made", Ms Sanders said. He said he longer wanted to use the term "maximum pressure" for his policy on North Korea because the two countries were getting along. "I think that has resonated to this whole point now". We are going to start a process.

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

There will be a series of meetings between the two countries over the five days that include "lead-in activities" and social events connected with the summit, it added.

Last month, the White House Communications Agency struck a commemorative coin featuring Trump and Kim against a backdrop of the United States and North Korean flags.

There have been fears that tensions will burst over into full-out war between North Korea and its western allies.

Trump also said he would hold off on additional sanctions against Pyongyang while talks are under way.
