Mass media: Trump and Kim Jong-un to declare Korean war over

"We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!", Trump tweeted.

"In fact, on a historical note, the first meeting between the leaders of China and Taiwan took place in Singapore some years back", Shah noted.

He'd said he favored holding the meeting at the Demilitarized Zone, the heavily fortified border separating the Koreas.

Notwithstanding the secret arrangements for Pompeo's return trip, we wouldn't be the first to report it.

The third detainee, Kim Dong Chul, was arrested in Rason on the northeast tip of North Korea in October 2015. The military hospital said reuniting them with families too soon can "cause additional psychological stress".

"I really believe that Jon", Trump said. He was the second sitting secretary of state to visit the reclusive nation and the highest-ranking US official to meet the young North Korean leader. Such a move might force the U.S. to halt the meeting, a presidential spokesman said yesterday.

North Korea initially pushed for Pyongyang, while the United States preferred a neutral third-country location.

"While the freedom of three American prisoners is a fantastic start, let's acknowledge that Kim has not yet ushered in freedom for all".

"The key is for the North Korean leader to decide", Abe told the Fuji Television network. "We've picked a place for the meeting, or 'summit, ' as you like to call it", said Trump.

He adds: "We got Otto home the previous year, but it wasn't soon enough". He said a massive inspection and monitoring regime would be required to ensure the North's compliance.

Pence says that despite Trump's recent praise for Kim, the administration is not ignoring the North's abysmal human rights record.

"We are happy for the hostages and their families", the Warmbiers said in a statement Wednesday.

"If North Korea takes bold action to quickly denuclearize, the United States is prepared to work with North Korea to achieve prosperity on par with our South Korean friends", he said.

Moon and Trump also held a phone conversation late Wednesday after Pompeo departed from Pyongyang.

The White House pulled out all the stops for the event, hoisting a giant American flag between two fire trucks on the tarmac and inviting reporters to witness the return. All three former prisoners smiled.

It has one foot in the East and one in the West, is ultra-modern, secure and sometimes mocked as being a little boring - Singapore was the safe pick for a historic first meeting between the unpredictable leaders of the U.S. and North Korea.

President Trump met with them after they landed in the US.

The president is accompanied by first lady Melania Trump.

The US will help rebuild North Korea's economy if it agrees to give up its nuclear weapons, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said.

Trump has previously said the release of the three men was part of working towards the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. They will then be transported to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for further evaluation and medical treatment. The trio, along with medical personnel, including a psychiatrist, were cloistered in the middle of Pompeo's plane in a small section of 12 business class-size seats that was cordoned off by curtains on both ends.

State Department officials refused to discuss anything but the most basic details of their conditions, citing privacy concerns.

The two other detainees, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, worked at the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology.

It considers the United States a close partner, while North Korea maintains a fully functioning embassy in the city-state.

The talks, which are expected to last one day, are set to focus on North Korea's rapidly advancing nuclear and ballistic weapons programmes. The North says eight others died, but Japanese officials and their families say that can not be trusted. Pyongyang acknowledged in 2002 abducting 13. They asked Trump to urge North Korea to allow global observers to visit all prisons and forced labor camps.

North Korea had accused the three Korean-Americans of anti-state activities.

Despite a middle-of-the-night landing Thursday at the Washington-area Joint Base Andrews, Trump and his wife plan to celebrate in person when the freed men arrive.

And more than two decades and multiple provocative weapons tests after the last accord, the threat from Pyongyang has only grown.
