"It would be very easy for me to make a simple deal and claim victory".

"I wouldn't want to take it that far because they are already talking", he said.

"South Korea now stands shoulder-to-shoulder with advanced countries after having climbed up from being one of the poorest countries in the world, thanks to the blood and sweat of our parents' generation", said Park Jung-ho, a 35-year-old office worker in Seoul.

Paring back Pyongyang's nuclear programme has become a priority for Seoul and Washington, given that North Korea has a proven nuclear capability and inter-continental ballistic missiles that could threaten the United States mainland.

Reports surrounding Punggye-ri test site collapsing have been swirling for months after Kim ordered his scientists to conduct the regime's sixth nuclear test last September.

Commentary: With more freedom to maneuver on foreign than domestic affairs, and with their eyes focused squarely on their legacies, all modern US presidents have sought to craft the elusive deal that will solve a protracted global conflict.

Cheon Seong-hoon, the former president of the Seoul-based Korea Institute for National Unification, said that Trump's decision to meet with Kim "is based on North Korea's denuclearization and nuclear removal".

We believe this concept should be a critical component of any effort to verifiably and irreversibly dismantle North Korea's nuclear weapons and related programs, as well as prevent future proliferation of weapons, material or know-how.

The remarks came days before only the third-ever inter-Korea summit, in which Moon will focus on persuading Kim to give up his widely-condemned nuclear weapons and easing military tension between the two Koreas.

"In line with what the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has been advocating, I call upon all concerned Governments to uphold human rights as a conflict prevention and peacebuilding mechanism", he said. He later voiced concern the administration was considering military action against North Korea.

But he warned against simply abandoning the multi-nation Iran nuclear deal, as Trump has considered, promoting a "more comprehensive deal" he has been discussing with White House officials during his US visit.

Analysts repeatedly told us during the era of U.S.

Jeong said the North Korea policy adopted by the previous USA administration of Barack Obama - which required Pyongyang to commit to giving up its nuclear weapons - was inadequate in ensuring stability on the Korean peninsula and gave Kim's regime more time to consolidate its nuclear arsenal.

Existing trade restrictions have also been extended.

Beyond dubbing him "Little Rocket Man" from the rostrum of the United Nations last fall, Trump has threatened to deliver "fire and fury" upon North Korea and taunted Kim on Twitter that his own nuclear "button" was larger than the one in Pyongyang.

Trump applauded Kim's announcement to cease testing, but formal steps toward denuclearization have not yet been taken.
