  • Russia says Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to visit N.Korea on May 31

Lavrov passed greetings from Russian President Vladimir Putin to Kim, saying he wished him success in the "major undertakings that have been initiated on the Korean peninsula", the ministry said in a statement.

Lavrov and his North Korean counterpart will discuss bilateral ties, North Korea's nuclear program and other key worldwide problems, the foreign ministry said.

The North and Japan held foreign ministers talks back in 2015 on the sidelines of the ARF in Malaysia.

U.S. President Donald Trump said talks with North Korea in NY have been very positive and he is expecting the delegation from Pyongyang to travel to Washington Friday (May 31) to deliver a letter to him from leader Kim Jong Un.

Washington wants North Korea to quickly give up all its nuclear weapons in a verifiable way in return for sanctions and economic relief.

Pyongyang has a different view of denuclearisation and remains deeply anxious that abandoning its deterrent would leave it vulnerable, especially while the United States maintains a robust military presence in South Korea.

President Trump told reporters the talks were going well and that North Korean officials may come to Washington on Friday.

Mega Man 11 Release Date Confirmed, New Trailer Released
PS4 owners who pre-order the digital version on PSN will obtain a dynamic Mega Man 30th Anniversary theme created by Truant Pixel. Spotted by Twitter user Wario64, over the weekend a store page temporarily had the game listed for an October 3rd release date.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga declined to confirm the reports.

The demolition was published in state media last week, but the actions taken were initially met with skepticism, Daily NK reported Saturday.

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan on Tuesday said it had detected what appeared to be a Chinese-flagged vessel, 350 km (218 miles) off Shanghai, conducting illegal transfers to a North Korean ship. North Korea suggested that Trump made this decision based on Pyongyang's unwillingness to unilaterally denuclearize, as the DPRK has continuously stressed that it was not interested in unilateral demands from the USA on denuclearization and would negotiate with Trump only if he is seeking to improve bilateral relations. Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump will host Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan on June 7 to coordinate their thinking ahead of the summit.

But he has also said Japan will need to eventually hold direct talks with North Korea to resolve an emotional row over abductions of Japanese nationals by Pyongyang.

A week ago, Trump called off the meeting in response to what he said was "tremendous anger and open hostility" displayed by Kim in recent statements that denounced top US officials.

Since then, meetings to prepare for the talks have resumed.
