Trump announced in a tweet on Thursday the two leaders will meet in Singapore on June 12. "We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!"

Vice President Mike Pence said in a statement Wednesday that the three Americans were released "thanks to President Trump's tough-minded diplomacy".

A recent summit of the Korean leaders resulted in a pledge to work toward peace.

While the two leaders have been trading barbs over the USA and North Korea's capabilities and nuclear power, the two nations have, of late, been trying to build a relation.

North Korea consistently tops the list of countries where Christians suffer the most and building off the Trump administration's momentum, human rights group Open Doors USA is pushing for the president to call attention to the 50,000 Christians who have been detained in labor camps. Kim has repeatedly expressed his commitment to denuclearization, but it's unclear on what terms.

Abe added that Japan will cooperate with the United States, South Korea and the worldwide community, including China and Russian Federation, to resolve the various issues related to North Korea through the Singapore summit. After a year of threats and diatribes, U.S. President Donald Trump and third-generation North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un have agreed to meet face-to-face for talks about the North's nuclear program.

Hussein fled to her family home after the incident but her father handed her to the police, Amnesty International said. Because Noura was a victim of rape, many are calling for her release, and for her not to be punished at all.


In another sign of blossoming diplomatic relations, it was recently revealed that former Central Intelligence Agency director and now-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo travelled to North Korea for a secret meeting with Kim over the Easter weekend. He met with Kim for the second time following a meeting in April.

The prisoners, freed after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo travelled to the North Korean capital, landed at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington, where a giant US flag was suspended between ladders of two fire trucks on the edge of the taxiway.

In Seoul, South Korea's presidential office, Cheong Wa Dae, welcomed the announcement of the summit.

"The U.S.is persistently clinging to the hostile policy toward the DPRK, misleading the public opinion", the column reads.

Kang praised the upcoming meeting between Mr. Trump and Kim in Singapore as an "historic" opportunity, but added a few notes of skepticism as well.

"Clearly, credit goes to President Trump", Kang told CNN's Christiane Amanpour.

The Chancellor noted that "on Europe's doorstep" there are many major global conflicts and expressed concern about the risk of war between Israel and Iran in Syria.


The Koreas remain technically at war after the conflict ended with an Armistice Agreement signed by the North, China and the U.S.

USA intelligence agencies have warned that the regime is on the verge of being able to mount a nuclear strike against the United States mainland.

However, while responding back to Kim Jong-un, Donald Trump replied saying, "North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the "Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times".

As leaders from the Group of Seven industrialized nations are scheduled to gather in Canada on June 8 and 9, Abe hopes to hold talks with Trump on the fringes of the summit and coordinate efforts toward resolving issues related to Pyongyang, the sources said.

Conjecture over the venue has been going on for weeks, with Pyongyang, Mongolia, Sweden, Switzerland, Indonesia, and Thailand being named as possible places. "We are very, very happy", he declared.
