"They ask for privacy as they transition home".

But Beijing is keen to avoid being sidelined in the wake of Kim's historic summit last month with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and ahead of his Trump summit.

She should know. Most of the progress made by North Korea in developing long-range missiles and nuclear weapons came while she was secretary of state under then-President Barack Obama.

Evidently, things never seem to stop shifting.

During the press conference, the White House also reaffirmed how Washington views denuclearization going into the summit.

It could also be a bilateral or multilateral format, but Washington "is not telling North Korea" because following the North Korea-U.S. summit, China or Russia's involvement could also be "another negotiation card".

Meanwhile, the Chinese regime-North Korea's communist ally-has been eager to exert itself into U.S.

I'm not saying we abandon the talks and give up on the idea of peace, but I'm not popping any champagne corks just yet. According to North Korea, denuclearization should be implemented gradually, step by step, one decision after another.

WTO says European Union subsidies harm Boeing, opening path for U.S. sanctions
The shares of Airbus had fallen shortly after the WTO issued its findings and were poised to close down around 0.86 percent. The EU will now take "swift action to ensure it is fully in line with the WTO's final decision in this case", she said.

EFCC building: President Buhari counts 'Looted' dollars

Maybe President Trump has finally given up on his cherished dream of Vladimir Putin as his new best friend. In the past, both the leaders, Donald Trump and Kim, have exchanged harsh words but this meeting can really gather them at one table. In addition, the summit will also touch upon the issue of establishing diplomatic relations between the United States and North Korea, the adjustment of the mechanism for peaceful development of the peninsula, the economic development of North Korea and its openness.

It's said Trump may pick the unorthodox resort and gaming complex overlooking the bustling Marina Bay, featuring a swimming pool and observation deck piggybacking on a "roof terrace" atop three 55-story hotel and condominium towers, as to return his personal favor to Sand's CEO and chairman Sheldon Adelson, a long-time donor.

What about the "politics of success" strategy? Following the meeting, North Korea released three American citizens.

Hyundai Group, a South Korean conglomerate, has set up a working group to explore how it can invest in the North while there have been numerous requests to the South Korean government about restarting the Kaesong industrial complex, according to local media reports. If the summit goes ahead, it will be the first meeting between the countries' two leaders since the Korean War - quite remarkable given how tensions escalated towards the end of previous year.

The talks between North Korea and the United States to end their nuclear program are a little less than a month away.

The Chinese regime has always been North Korea's biggest trading partner, providing food, energy resources, and other supplies to the North.

At this point, frankly speaking, I haven't the slightest idea about whether Trump will enshrine the politics of success or exploit the politics of crisis.

"We hope this meeting will advance prospects for peace in the Korean Peninsula", the island city-state's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a May 10 statement.
