Presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom on Tuesday said in a written briefing that National Intelligence Service Director Suh Hoon held talks with Kono for three hours on Monday evening in Tokyo. However, both the United States and Japan are sceptical, remembering past instances where North Korea has used potential diplomatic resolution to relieve pressure on the regime.
The Japanese prime minister also promised cooperation "in all ways possible" for the success of the envisioned inter-Korean and U.S. Adding that "it is unnecessary for China, a major power to worry about North Korea 'turning to the U.S., '" the editorial maintained that "if the Kim-Trump meeting will contribute to the denuclearization and peace that China desires the most, China has no reason to be unhappy about it".
Some experts are concerned that North Korea could be seeking to delay global action while strengthening its nuclear program. It is seen as very unlikely that Kim would go to Washington or Trump to Pyongyang, so most expect a neutral location to be used. Now the new U.S. president has agreed to talk with him, one on one.

Zhang Liangui, a professor and Korea scholar at the Central Party School in Beijing, emphasized that the North Korea nuclear issue "involves geopolitical and regional security and China naturally should take an active part in it".
North Korea's silence on its upcoming summits with the United States and South Korea is likely due to caution over organising its stance regarding the meetings, according to South Korea's Ministry of Unification. Ahead of Trump's decision to accept Kim's offer of talks, Pyongyang agreed to pause its nuclear and missile testing, but made no commitment to halt its research and development on ballistic missiles - which is hard, if not impossible, for the Americans to trace.
