US President Donald Trump, in a tweet hours before his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, said staff-level meetings between the United States and North Korea were "going well and quickly".
Rodman, sporting a black t-shirt advertising a cryptocurrency he is involved with, said he was unsure whether he would get to meet with Kim - a man he has previously described as a "friend for life".
Mr Kim also sounded positive: "We overcame all kinds of scepticism and speculations about this summit and I believe that this is good for the peace", he said. The conflict, in which millions of people died, was concluded only with a truce. Trump said last week that Rodman had not been invited to the summit.
Cho says if the summit is successful there will be more diplomatic meetings and inspections to verify the terms of any agreement. "We will all know soon whether or not a real deal, unlike those of the past, can happen!"
In exchange for North Korea dismantling its nuclear program, Pompeo says the USA will provide appropriate security assurances to North Korea. We have our hostages, testing, research and all missle launches have stoped, and these pundits, who have called me wrong from the beginning, have nothing else they can say! We will be fine!' Global attention is focused on whether the leaders will reach a deal on denuclearization and ending the Korean War.
Oprah Winfrey and Apple announce multi-year content deal
Under the deal, Winfrey and Apple will create programs that will be released as part of Apple's original content lineup. Perhaps most famously, Netflix signed both Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes to deals valued at over nine figures each.
Officials from the two sides held last-minute talks aimed at laying the groundwork for a meeting that was nearly unthinkable just months ago, when the two leaders were exchanging insults and threats that raised fears of war.
Greg Scarlatoiu, executive director of the USA -based Committee for Human Rights in North Korea, and Rabbi Abraham Cooper at the Simon Wiesenthal Center urged Trump to seek "the complete, verifiable, irreversible dismantlement" of North Korean political prison camps - mimicking the formulation used by the U.S.in its demand for that nation's denuclearization.
When Trump met former North Korean military intelligence chief Kim Yong Chol at the White House two weeks ago, the president said they didn't discuss human rights, underscoring that it was not a primary concern.
Mr Kim is due to leave on Tuesday afternoon. He bounced to the Singapore summit after a tempestuous G-7 summit where the USA was isolated from its key European partners as never before and Trump even derided his Canadian host, a paragon of liberal democracy, as "dishonest" and "weak".
