China, Japan, South Korea agree on North's nukes

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met Moon on April 27 and Chinese President Xi Jinping earlier this week, in a surprise visit to the Chinese coastal city of Dalian. The interview was conducted in the presence of North Korean officials, so CNN could not determine whether Kim's comments were made under duress.

During the visit, announced only after it was over, Kim told Xi he hoped relevant parties would take "phased" and "synchronized" measures to realize denuclearization and lasting peace on the Korean peninsula.

As in China, North Korean names begin with a surname followed by a two-part given name, so the correct way to refer to Kim Jong Un is Chairman Kim.

Trump has threatened all three countries with tariffs in a bid to seek trade concessions from them.

Ahead of a meeting between Mr. Trump and President Xi Jinping of China in Germany a year ago, for example, a White House statement referred to Mr. Xi as the leader of the Republic of China - the formal name for Taiwan, which China considers part of its territory.

But ties deteriorated markedly after Kim took power and undertook an ever-more aggressive pursuit of nuclear weapons and the ballistic missiles to deliver them.

Aoki: The Tokyo summit came just a few weeks after the leaders of North and South Korea had met and agreed to work toward denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

Kim, previously a professor at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology was detained by North Korean authorities in 2017 for allegedly "committing criminal acts of hostility aimed at overturning the DPRK".

China, Japan and South Korea warmed their chilly relations Wednesday, brought together by a common goal: ending North Korea's nuclear program.

"China will continue to play a constructive role in this regard", he said. We learned some interesting details about the visit from Chinese state-run media.

The image of Kim and Xi strolling on the beach is a powerful one. The two will probably meet in Singapore in mid-June after the G7 summit, according to multiple reports.

The two leaders "opened their hearts and had warm conversations", North Korea's state news agency KCNA reported.

US officials say besides working on those details, Pompeo will also press North Korea for the release of three detained American citizens, whose imminent release Trump has been hinting at.

In March, Kim traveled by train to Beijing, his first known trip overseas since assuming power in 2011.

The unilateral nature of Trump's move is also likely to worry officials at the Blue House in Seoul. Meantime, a date and place for the historic summit between President Trump and President Kim Jong Un has been set. The university is the only privately funded college in North Korea and was founded in 2010 with donations from Christian groups.

Kim, who also serves as Deputy Prime Minister, said President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Suma Chakrabarti had called him and expressed a willingness to support DPRK-based projects in his interview with tbs FM's radio show "Kim Eo Jun's News Factory".

He was arrested in October 2015 after he reportedly received a USB stick containing nuclear-linked data and other military information from a former North Korean soldier.
