  • North Korean minister'to visit Sweden ahead of Trump Kim talks

North Korean media continues to criticize the USA for imposing sanctions on the country, but it has toned down its anti-U.S. rhetoric. "I think it's time", Mr Trump told a crowd of supporters at a rally in Pennsylvania, adding that he believed Pyongyang when they said "they are not sending missiles up" as the two sides work out the arrangements for a historic meeting.

In an article on Washington's move to slap tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, the Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea, referred to Trump simply as the USA leader.

This combination of file photos created on March 9, 2018 shows North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un during the 5th Conference of the Workers' Party of Korea Cell Chairpersons in this photo from North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) taken on December 23, 2017 and released on December 24, 2017 (L) and President Donald Trump speaking to the press in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, DC on February 9, 2018.

Tillerson says nothing has been agreed about the location for the meeting.

"The offer was made and we've accepted. -South Korea planned military exercises", he added.

"We're continuing to prepare on a number of levels", Sanders said. South Korean President Moon Jae-in also plans to hold a summit with Kim by the end of April.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is "in the driver's seat at the moment", Wendy Sherman the former chief United States nuclear negotiator with Iran who also advised President Bill Clinton on North Korea told CNN.

In Beijing on Monday, Xi told Chung there was an important opportunity for talks.

Tensions eased as the Koreas held talks against the backdrop of the Winter Olympics in South Korea last month, but Japan has expressed scepticism and warned that "talks for the sake of talks" would be unacceptable. The paper is not part of North Korea's official media, but it serves as a mouthpiece for Pyongyang.

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono said after talks with Suh Hoon that Tokyo and Seoul agreed that maximum pressure must be maintained on North Korea until it takes concrete action to address concerns about its weapons programmes. It has continued to warn the United States and Japan against war-mongering, but its rhetoric has been tame compared with threats exchanged at the height of tensions previous year.
