"He is going to make a basic assessment.is this guy serious or is, as some people think, this all a ruse and a North Korean deception?"

The United States and North Korea have been in a technical state of war for decades after the eruption of the 1950-1953 Korean War, which pitted U.S. -led U.N. troops backing Seoul against Pyongyang's forces that were aided by China.

"The underlying driver is a transformational process of Kim Jong-un leading North Korea into a new place in the region and the world", said John Delury, a professor of Chinese studies at Yonsei University in Seoul.

Pompeo praised European countries for helping bring about the summit scheduled for Tuesday, saying it could not have happened without them.

An unsuccessful summit, which will begin Monday night Washington time, could plunge U.S. The president arrived in Asia having blown up relations with USA allies - and personally with French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau - over trade and Russian Federation, announcing via Twitter en route to Singapore that he'd withdraw from a joint agreement covering climate change and other issues. And en route from Canada to Singapore, Trump unleashed a harsh Twitter attack on Trudeau, which was amplified Sunday on television talk shows by Navarro and White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow. But on the ground in Singapore, he maintained a surprising restraint in his public comments about the historic encounter he clearly hopes may define his presidency.

Even if Kim offers only "a fine-sounding rhetorical commitment, and maybe a few missile surrendered or some site closures", he said, Trump will "market this thing as something extraordinary for his voters back home".

"I am very confident that the relationships between our countries. will continue to move forward on a strong basis", Pompeo told a news briefing ahead of an unprecedented summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

Pompeo has disputed the notion that the president is moving the goalposts, telling reporters Thursday that Trump "has always understood that this was a process". Lee complimented the bold and admirable decision by Kim and Trump to come together for the Summit. Thus, recent references to the Libyan parallel pushed Pyongyang to issue repeated threats to pull out of the Singapore summit, even before Mr. Trump actually called it off. "I'll tell you what the Marshall wants more than anything".

U.S. President Donald Trump smiles in front of a cake during an advanced birthday celebration at his meeting with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in the Istana, ahead of a summit between North Korea and the U.S., Singapore, June 11, 2018, in this photo obtained from social media.

The president's rhetoric has not mirrored that of his new secretary of state.

"I think within the first minute - my touch, my feel, that's what I do", the president said, touting his deal-making experience as a businessman.

Nevertheless, as the Daily Beast reported in March, there is a "non-zero" chance the June 12 summit could descend into childish name calling. But, death grip handshakes aside, Trump has so far been gushingly polite in his dealings with Asian leaders.

The U.S. president also dangled the prospect of inviting Kim to Washington if the meeting is a success. "Give me a break, OK?"

Even after touching down in Singapore, it was clear that the trade disputes with U.S. allies in Quebec continued to rankle Trump.
