Church leaders welcome Korean peninsula peace moves

She said that the U.S.is continuing to prepare for the summit on a number of levels but stressed that the U.S.' maximum pressure campaign against the North will continue, saying North Korea responded thanks to the campaign.

But some members of Congress said they worry that Trump acted impulsively in agreeing to meet with Kim, before negotiators for both countries had a chance to set some goals the leaders could agree to.

Speaking after meeting Suh, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono credited recent changes in North Korea's position to increased pressure by global society.

Meanwhile, in New York, US National Security Advisor HR McMaster and US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, briefed members of the UN Security Council on developments related to North Korea.

The surprise announcement of a possible Trump-Kim summit came after the president met Thursday with South Korean national security adviser Chung Eui-yong.

The U.S. and the South Korea are also discussing how to conduct upcoming military drills in a way that won't provoke Kim, whose regime views the exercises as a rehearsal for war. He still will have at his disposal every North Korean capability for disruption, misadventure, and military conflict.

"Once again, we expect that China will continue to play an active and leading role and the South Korean government will continue to coordinate closely with China".

"The only thing that would take priority is if I have commitments here that I can not change", Faso said.

Observers say the meeting has raised expectations of progress in resolving the nuclear crisis on the Korean peninsula.

South Korea's National Security Office chief, Chung Eui-yong, who led the delegation, heads to Russian Federation on Tuesday after meeting Chinese President Xi Jinping, the Blue House said.

In Geneva, the United Nations investigator on North Korea said any progress in the nuclear and security dialogue at the planned summits must be accompanied by talks on human rights violations, including political prison camps.

Brown, D-Ohio, called on Trump to "work with our allies to end North Korea's nuclear program and I'm glad the sanctions Congress passed against North Korea helped bring Kim Jong-un to the table".

The North's official news agency has been lauding efforts between the North and South to thaw relations, but state media has continued to warn the United States and Japan against war-mongering.

According to a spokesman of South Korea's presidential Blue House, Kono said the situation on the Korean Peninsula is a near "miracle", referring to a recent breakthrough on talks with North Korea.

Although it's reported that Kim Jong-un is keen for President Trump to sign a peace treaty, experts are now concerned what might be said if the two notoriously volatile meet in private.

The South Korean leader might offer to reopen the Kaesong industrial center, which was closed after a North Korean nuclear test in 2016.
