Trump likes DMZ for Kim summit venue

Choo Mi-ae, the leader of the ruling Democratic Party speaks during a party meeting at the National Assembly in Seoul

"Indonesia provides full support for the process to continue with some deals that we hope will contribute to the peace process in our region", President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) stated at the Merdeka Palace on Monday, after a meeting with ambassadors from North and South Korea.

Previous winners of the Nobel Peace Prize have included Trump's predecessor, President Barack Obama, Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai and Nelson Mandela.

In floating the idea of a Trump Nobel, Mr Moon was responding to a comment by Lee Hee-ho, the widow of late South Korean President Kim Dae-jung.

The time change comes after the North and South Korean leaders met on Friday in an effort to formally end the 1950-53 Korean War.

"We're also looking at other countries including Singapore".

That upcoming meeting was the main subject of a private walk and chat that Mr Kim and Mr Moon had during their meeting at the border, the official said.

Last Friday, Kim became the first North Korean leader to set foot in South Korea when he crossed the border to shake the hand of South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

White House Defies 'Outrageous' Allegations About Veterans Affairs Nominee Ronny Jackson
The summary of the serious allegations against Jackson are laid out in a new document released on Wednesday by the office of Sen. It found staffers suffering from low morale after Jackson, a captain at the time , and another White House physician, Capt.

The remarks came after US President Donald Trump mentioned Panmunjom as a possible site for his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un expected to be held this month or in June.

"There is something that I like about it because you are there, you are actually there", Trump added.

In January, Moon said Trump "deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks".

Much of the agreement depends on whether Trump will agree to Kim's demands that the USA remove its nearly 30,000 military personnel from South Korea, as well as removing its "nuclear umbrella" security commitment to South Korea and Japan. "Just asking!" the US President tweeted.

In another stunning display of diplomatic genius, Trump used his speech at the United Nations General Assembly a year ago to threaten to "totally destroy" North Korea if it did not comply with Washington's demands.

"I think the summit will happen, and personally I think it's going to be a success", Trump told reporters at the White House.

Moon and Kim have also agreed to end the Korean War during a meeting in the demilitarized zone of Panmunjom village.

"So we are looking at the possibility of doing it in that location", the USA leader said.
