Vietnamese suspect in Kim Jong Nam murder to be released soon

Malaysian prosecutors dropped the murder charge against Doan Thi Huong on April 1

The commemoration comes a few days after Kim Jong Un, grandson of Kim Il Sung, was re-elected supreme leader by the top legislature, and expressed eagerness to hold a third summit with U.S. President Donald Trump, in his policy speech at the parliament.

Moon, who visited Washington to meet Trump last week, said Kim's latest address "set the stage" for a fourth inter-Korean summit, which could be a "stepping stone for an even bigger opportunity and a more significant outcome". This year's anniversary came as North Korea held a series of political events to solidify leader Kim Jong Un's grip on power.

A Vietnamese woman accused of killing the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will be released on May 3, her lawyer said.

Seoul and Washington, which have been allies since the 1950-53 Korean War, insist they remain in lockstep about the approach to nuclear talks with the North.

"Dear Mister Kim Jong Un, please accept my honest congratulations on your re-election as the chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea]". While praising Kim for his intentions to continue dialogue, Moon officially announced his plans to pursue another inter-Korean summit to revive the U.S. However, the South Korean media outlet did not offer details of the precise time and venue.

On Monday, Moon also reviewed his meeting last week with Trump, where the USA leader was in favour of fresh inter-Korean talks and also open to a trilateral summit in the future.

Environmental protesters smashed the windows of oil company Shell's headquarters in London and several people have been arrested. The busy Thames crossing was closed to traffic in both directions this morning, Transport for London (TfL) said.

South Korean and USA officials have said the North Korean regime had ordered the assassination of Kim Jong Nam, who had been critical of his family's dynastic rule.

Moon has said it is Seoul's "outmost priority" to prevent nuclear negotiations between the US and North Korea from derailing, and there is speculation that he will soon announce a plan to send a special envoy to Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, in an effort to rescue the talks. "But U.S. -style dialogue of unilaterally pushing its demands doesn't fit us, and we have no interest in it".

Moon spent the past year making aggressive efforts to stabilize South Korea's hard-won detente with North Korea and improve bilateral relations.

Kim did mention the June 12 Singapore declaration, concluded a year ago between him and Trump.

Speculation is high that Moon will discuss a plan to dispatch a special envoy to Pyongyang to arrange an inter-Korean summit, but Ko Min-jung, deputy spokeswoman of the Blue House, said the issue was not deliberated at the senior secretariat meeting.
