Many have their doubts about Trump-Kim summit

The two men are scheduled to meet in Singapore on Tuesday.

During talks chaired by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the G7 leaders agreed to contribute to the success of the Trump-Kim summit, the spokesman added. It will certainly be an exciting day and I know that Kim Jong-un will work very hard to do something that has rarely been done before, create peace and great prosperity for his land.

Still, it's a serious contrast to the days a year ago when choice insults - Trump's "little rocket man" and Kim's "dotard" - were flying between Washington and Pyongyang during the North's nuclear and missile tests.

In recent weeks, it was unclear if the June 12 summit would take place, after President Trump announced he was canceling the meeting.

Beijing, the North's only major ally and key economic lifeline, is also ready for a peace agreement, according to William Overholt, an Asia expert and senior fellow at Harvard University, and could "come down very hard on the North" if Pyongyang refuses to abandon its nukes despite potential USA offers of a peace treaty, security guarantees, diplomatic recognition and economic assistance. That was followed by a surprise and rapid diplomatic thaw that survived Trump's abrupt cancellation of the summit late last month. What you want to do is start that ... but at a minimum we will at least have met each other, we will have seen each other, hopefully we will have liked each other ... The two men exchanged fiery rhetoric previous year over North Korea's attempts to build nuclear weapons that could reach the United States but tensions have since calmed considerably.

"I am on my way to Singapore where we have a chance to achieve a truly wonderful result for North Korea and the World". But classmates of the future president said that while there, he got a firsthand taste of the terrors of the atomic age.

In any case, raising the topic of North Korea's human rights abuses will be necessary as a practical matter.

Argentina's Lanzini ruled out of World Cup
Argentina's national team is due to travel to Russian Federation on Saturday for the World Cup. The West Ham United player has suffered a awful ACL injury and is out of the team.

When he previously appeared at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea with the same Donald Trump lookalike, he was escorted out by security after waving and dancing in front of North Korea´s cheerleaders.

Trump insisted Saturday that the meeting was not contentious, saying that his relationships with allies remained strong, but continued to say that the US had been "taken advantage of for decades and decades" on trade. "Very well prepared, I think". A Nobel Peace Prize for Trump may also be on the line.

The nations' top diplomat also told Phoenix TV that while he is sure Chinese objections to Trump's trade policies will come up during his visit to Beijing - his first as Secretary of State - a readout of the meeting in Singapore will drive the agenda.

"Even if they cheat on handing over nuclear weapons, possibly cheat on freezing uranium production, there can be a certain amount of cheating and we can still be better off", Kristof says.

Kristof says that a diplomat once told him, "the job of leaders at a summit is to pull rabbits out of hats, and the job of the Sherpas preparing for the summit is to stuff the hats with the rabbits - and there isn't really time for that".
