The Kremlin Has Invited North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un to Russian Federation

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis attends a trilateral meeting with Japan's Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera and Australia's Defense Minister Marise Payne during the 17th International Institute for Strategic Studies Shangri-la Dialogue

Kim Yong-chol left New York City late Saturday afternoon, local time, and arrived in Beijing on Sunday on his way back to Pyongyang.

Trump on Friday revived the summit after cancelling it a week earlier.

The removal of top North Korean military officials from their positions is inviting speculation about internal instability in the Kim Jong Un regime.

"It's easy to criticize Trump's approach, but it's an undeniable fact that he got North Korea moving to this stage", a diplomatic source based in Washington said Saturday.

Kim Yong-chol delivered a letter from Kim Jong-un to Donald Trump in the White House on June 1.

Seoul's unification ministry has said the three firings would be unusual if confirmed.

Asked whether he would discuss human rights issues at the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump gave a vague answer, saying: "Could be".

The two sides could also discuss the issue of declaring a formal end to the 1950-53 Korean War, which is widely seen as the first step that the United States could take to give the North a security guarantee. He said the army could be getting ready to take over crucial infrastructure projects.

All of the newly promoted officials are younger than their predecessors, according to Yonhap, especially Ri Yong Gil, 63, who is 21 years younger than Ri Myong Su.

The Trump administration has prioritized preventing North Korea from developing a reliable nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missile that could target the USA mainland.

'They're all young but capable people, ' Yang said.

President Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary James Mattis have already made it clear that no progress will be made if North Korea does not agree to take "irreversible" steps toward denuclearization.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that she has never heard Hagin say that, telling CNN that "I've worked very closely with Joe and it's just not how his mind thinks or the way that he operates".

In preparation for the Singapore summit, Kim Jong Un has reportedly shaken up North Korea's military leadership-though it's not clear whether it's the kind of reshuffle that involves executions or mere demotions. The president also showed unusual politeness, seeing Kim Yong-chol, a former spy chief, off as he departed in a vehicle. While in China, he may have reported to Beijing officials the results of his trip to the United States, where he held meetings with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in NY over Wednesday and Thursday before meeting with Trump on Friday.
