North Korea preparing to release United States detainees: activist

North Korea preparing to release United States detainees: activist

The Blue House did not invite a single member from outside the Democratic Party, drawing rare bipartisan criticism from both the left and right and providing conservative hawks with fresh fodder to criticize the declaration that President Moon Jae-in signed with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

"Once we start talking, the United States will know that I am not a person to launch nuclear weapons at South Korea, the Pacific or the United States", Yoon quoted Kim as saying. They vowed to pursue denuclearisation and a peace treaty to formally end the 1950-53 Korean War, setting the mood for Kim's much-anticipated face-to-face encounter with US President Donald Trump.

Sol Kim, son of Tony Kim, said on social media that he is optimistic but has no indication that the hostages have been released.

But when asked whether the North would allow "anytime, anywhere" inspections of the site from now on, the official said it may be too early to discuss such matters, while stressing that it is crucial not to repeat the mistakes of the past involving agreements that failed to be fully implemented.

Kim Hak Song, 55, also worked at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology before his detention on May 6, 2017.

A third person, Kim Dong Chul, a Korean-American missionary, was arrested in October 2015 and sentenced in March 2016 to 10 years of hard labor for subversion.

While the Trump administration has made bringing home Americans unjustly imprisoned overseas a hallmark of its policy, and many argue Kim Jong-un has much to gain from ceding to this demand, reports at press time do not confirm that the three prisoners are released - nor do they guarantee that they ultimately will be.

They rated a tornado in Saline and Ottawa Counties as an EF-3, with winds of up to 143 miles per hour . Rated at an EF-1, the tornado lasted 11 minutes, traveling more than five miles.

"We are likewise fighting very diligently to get the three American citizens back", Trump said at a press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in April. I think that has resonated to this whole point now.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has reportedly agreed to meet President Donald Trump for their historic meeting in the Korean demilitarized zone, the most heavily armed border in the world.

While much of Trump's camp is eager to hold the meeting at the DMZ, some USA officials would still prefer a neutral meeting location instead.

"I think it's probably going to be announced over the next couple of days, location and date", Trump told reporters at the White House.

Meanwhile, North Korea is now holding six South Koreans - three of whom are pastors - on charges of committing what the North called anti-North Korea crimes.

Mr Moon's comments came after a presidential adviser publicly suggested that the presence of United States soldiers, sailors and airmen would be called into question if a peace treaty were to be agreed with Pyongyang.
