Trump casts North Korea summit as 'one-time shot' for Kim Jong Un

In his press conference Saturday, Trump compared what he described as a lack of action on the part of past USA leaders on North Korea with the "bad" trade deals they made with key allies, including Canada and France.

Mr Trump already has two big wins to show his domestic audience - he welcomed home three U.S. detainees on their release from North Korea and can show them Pyongyang's destruction of its only nuclear test site.

Beijing, the North's only major ally and key economic lifeline, is also ready for a peace agreement, according to William Overholt, an Asia expert and senior fellow at Harvard University, and could "come down very hard on the North" if Pyongyang refuses to abandon its nukes despite potential US offers of a peace treaty, security guarantees, diplomatic recognition and economic assistance.

Mr Trump was able to portray North Korea's scramble to convince him to stay in the talks as a victory - but also to redefine the terms of the talks.

Mike Pompeo said Thursday that Kim Jong-un had personally assured him that, "he is prepared to denuclearize. But the hurdle is just too high", Watanabe said.

"The minimum would be a relationship - you'd start at least a dialogue", Trump added, when asked about outcomes.

A delicate aspect of the Trump-Kim summit is that the United States is meeting with a de facto nuclear state that desires détente without denuclearization, while the USA wants détente in exchange for denuclearization. Trump has held out the possibility of striking an accord with Kim that would formally end the 1950-53 Korean War, which was concluded with a truce, and not a peace treaty.

Without defining, in detail, a mutual "action for action" process, the United States could change the window dressing around the threat - without getting at the root of the threat itself.

But it doesn't want to be excluded from the talks, and Ms Sun says China flits between "war anxiety and exclusion anxiety". "They have no way to obtain information about what South Korea or the United States look like".

"It gives me an indication that the hostility by the average Australians against the DPRK is reducing and there's more interest in learning about the country".

He also ridiculed Kim in a speech at the UN General Assembly as "Little Rocket Man" who in turn called Trump a "dotard". Xi Jinping is a partner of Trump's in sanctions implementation, but China's role in peacebuilding has not yet been clearly defined, and it is making Beijing nervous.

"If a breakthrough is achieved, if peace comes, there will be a bountiful harvest - primarily, of course, within the Korean Peninsula but indeed for all the rest of us", he said.

6. What will happen if the summit fails?

. MORE on Saturday tweeted that he hoped for a "truly wonderful result" to come out of his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un after leaving the Group of Seven (G-7) summit in Canada early for Singapore, where the meeting is expected to take place.

But on Tuesday, the two leaders will put aside their enmity and pitch a peaceful message at an historic summit on the island of Sentosa, off Singapore.
