The Post notes that Rodman has said he gave Kim a copy of Trump's book The Art of the Deal in 2017.

"We thank our great Singaporean hosts for their hospitality", Sanders said.

Meanwhile Trump has promised to "transform" the rogue state after a meeting with the dictator's right-hand man, Kim Yong Choi.

The location offers excellent security, a track record of putting together top-level worldwide gatherings and long-standing ties with North Korea.

In a meeting that lasted more than an hour Friday with one of Kim's top deputies, Kim Yong Chol, Trump said he did not raise the issue of human rights.

Nabil Fekir's agent breaks silence on reported imminent move to Liverpool
Fabinho and Naby Keita are already Reds players - great additions to the strongest Liverpool side in years. Fekir scored for France in their 2-0 win over Ireland during the week.

North Korea has replaced its three most senior military officials with less hawkish appointees, leading analysts to speculate that Kim Jong-un is attempting to sideline hardline factions within the regime.

Trump, who had previously played up expectations for the summit, has said in recent days that he hopes the meeting will "start a process".

"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.

The White House set a time for President Donald Trump's first meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as planning advances for the two leaders' historic summit in Singapore next week. Shangri-La hotel, located in the region, will be a possible venue for the June 12 summit, Reuters reported.

North Korea's state affairs commission secretariat Kim Chang Son also met Hagin at Capella after arriving in Singapore in late May to hash out details for the summit.

Microsoft reportedly in "serious" talks to acquire GitHub
Under Nadella's leadership, Microsoft has been trying hard to shed its image of being an enemy of open source software and Linux. It's also worth mentioning that this isn't the first time Microsoft approached the coding company with an intention to buy it.

Publicly, the cost of dismantling North Korea's nuclear weapons program, and who will cover it, has yet to be discussed by the concerned countries.

Bolton ruffled some feathers in April by speculating that the Trump administration was "looking at the Libya model of 2003, 2004" as part of potential negotiations with North Korea.

Gen Kim Yong-chol's visit came a day after he met US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in NY, who described their talks of denuclearisation as "substantive". Reuters says a senior United States official, also speaking anonymously, has also endorsed the report.

"He's talked about it, but no final trip or plans have been made", he said.

The original map delineating the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea in the armistice agreement that ended the fighting between North and South Korea when signed on July 27, 1953 is seen in a conservation lab of the U.S. National Archives in Adelphi, Maryland near Washington, U.S., June 4, 2018.

Assad raises prospect of clashes with US forces in Syria
Assad said a confrontation between Russian Federation and USA forces over Syria had also been narrowly avoided. Somehow, they're going to leave. "They came to Iraq with no legal basis, and look what happened to them".

"It seems like that the USA is insisting on its way of North Korea's denuclearization - allowing unconditional inspection into North Korea's nuclear facilities and transferring parts of nuclear warheads, nuclear material and ICBMs out of the country - and urging the North to make a bold decision", said Shin Beom-chul, a senior researcher at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies.
