Trump predicts 'AWESOME' future for North Korea if Kim gives up nukes

HANOI: US President Donald Trump on Wednesday touted an "AWESOME" future for North Korea ahead of a high-stakes dinner with its leader Kim Jong Un if his "friend" has the same opinion to surrender his nuclear arsenal.

The Trump tweet, wearing his acquainted use of capital letters for emphasis, mentioned the alternatives for a denuclearised North Korea had been "like almost none other in history".

Trump and Kim are due to meet for one-on-one talks, then dinner, in the Vietnamese capital Hanoi, followed through extra talks Thursday.

He described Kim as "my friend," a some distance cry from when the 2 leaders had been slinging private insults and threats of destruction at each other on the top of tensions over the North's weapons programmes.

Trump also lashed out at his domestic opponents for his or her criticism of his engagement with the remoted regime.

"The Democrats should stop talking about what I should do with North Korea and ask themselves instead why they didn't do 'it' during eight years of the Obama Administration?" mentioned Trump, regarding his predecessor in the White House.

The two days of talks goal to put some flesh on the bones of a vague declaration issued after their first ancient assembly in June in Singapore.

Then, Kim committed to work "towards complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula", but diplomatic development has since stalled due to disagreements over what that suggests.

Trump has seemed to lower US expectancies for the summit, pronouncing that he would be happy if Pyongyang's pause in nuclear and missile trying out continued.

The president is thought to be taking into consideration dangling relief from difficult international sanctions. Opening of diplomatic liaison workplaces is some other imaginable US concession.

In return, Washington hopes to get Kim to dismantle the key nuclear facility at Yongbyon, allow in international inspectors, or even surrender a full list of all the country's nuclear belongings -- something the North Koreans have categorically refused to do.
