Malaysia to settle its problem with North Korea - Dr Mahathir

Kim could also meet with Vietnam's President Nguyễn Phú Trọng before sitting down with Trump.

Despite a reduction in tensions along the DMZ [demilitarized zone] and a cessation of strategic provocations coupled with public statements of intent to denuclearize little to no verifiable change has occurred in North Korea's military capabilities.

The Stanford experts said it was their assessment that "North Korea can not deliver a nuclear warhead with any measure of confidence to the US mainland", although Hecker said its nuclear weapons were a real threat to Japan and South Korea. There are about 28,500 USA troops stationed in South Korea.

The finding comes ahead of a second planned summit between the North Korean leader and U.S. President Donald Trump.

The White House declined comment on Davidson's remarks. He said before the talks they would include discussion of corresponding steps North Korea has demanded.

"Seoul will cooperate with the national government so that the 2023 summer Olympics become something more than a sports festival - an opportunity to change the fate of the Korean peninsula", said Seoul mayor Park Won-soon.

As Vietnam prepares for the summit, its reform model is being widely touted as the economic path for impoverished and isolated North Korea to follow.

5 - Renowned U.S. investment guru, Jim Rogers, it seems will be going to North Korea next month after receiving an invitation from Kim Jong-un.

Kim pledged during the first summit with Trump June to work towards denuclearization of the Korean peninsula but there has been little concrete progress.

South Korean media said Biegun told a South Korean parliamentary delegation visiting Washington that in Pyongyang the two sides agree not to negotiate, but to make clear their respective positions.

7 - There are only two weeks left now till the summit.

A sign for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics is displayed by a road leading into PyeongChang, on February 11, 2018, in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a visit to Slovakia on Tuesday he hoped for "substantial progress" in Hanoi.

Following the North's series of nuclear and missile tests in 2017, the Trump administration has led the drive at the United Nations to impose tough sanctions on the country.

In talks with the United States, North Korea has been seeking a lifting of punishing US -led sanctions, a formal end to the 1950-53 Korean War, and security guarantees.

A Stanford University study released on Tuesday said North Korea had continued to produce bomb fuel while in talks with the United States and may have produced enough in the past year to add as many as seven nuclear weapons to its arsenal.
