S.Korean Envoy Briefs Xi on Kim Jong-un Meeting

China is looking forward to smooth talks between the United States and North Korea, President Xi Jinping told the head of South Korea's National Security Office on Monday, Reuters with reference to the state media reported. -North Korea summit, Xi welcomed the USA president's decision to meet with Kim and urged both sides to "start engagement and dialogue as quickly as possible and strive to obtain positive results".

"As the 'Island of Peace, ' Jeju is the ideal place to hold the North Korea-US summit", Jeju's governor said in a statement. They also said Mr Kim would allow US-South Korean military exercises to continue in the months before the meeting, which was originally slated for May.

The South claims the North is willing to discuss denuclearization, but it likely will only do so on terms the US should never accept. Kim may offer to give up his nukes for USA forces' pullout from South Korea and a signed peace treaty.

Some experts are concerned that North Korea could be seeking to delay worldwide action while strengthening its nuclear program.

Tillerson has been working the issue several time zones ahead of the U.S. East Coast during a five-nation swing through sub-Saharan Africa. Tonight's announcement is an encouraging sign, but the president has left the State Department without the full complement of diplomatic personnel necessary for these talks to be successful. South Korea and North Korea also agreed to hold what would be their third summit in history in late April.

Now, in a head-snapping display of incoherence, Trump has agreed to meet Kim, giving the planet's worst human-rights abuser what he most wants: worldwide legitimacy.

On Friday, one day after Trump announced the Trump-Kim summit, White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, said any meeting with Pyongyang would be conditional with "zero concessions".

If the U.S. sends special envoys to North Korea, they are the likely candidates, he added.

"He has dealt with North Korea's nuclear program under the Obama administration and is one of those who understand North Korea well", he said.

South Korean conservatives have had two nightmare scenarios about President Donald Trump: He would embroil their country in a ruinous war with North Korea, or sell out their interests to the North.

As Russia and China share a land border with the isolated nation, both countries play an important role in stabilising the conflict.

Zhang Liangui, a professor and Korea scholar at the Central Party School in Beijing, emphasized that the North Korea nuclear issue "involves geopolitical and regional security and China naturally should take an active part in it".

Many people were shocked last week by news of the planned talks between the leaders of the United States and North Korea. That's beyond the North's promise not to resume nuclear testing and missile flights or publicly criticize U.S.

Another spot in South Korea that has been raised as an option is scenic Jeju Island, off the southern coast, easily accessed by either boat or airplane from the Korean peninsula.
