June 12 summit is on, says Trump after 2 hours with top North Korean official

Kim Yong Chol, right-hand of North Korea’s ruler, hand-delivered a letter from Kim Jong-un to US President Donald Trump at the White House on Friday, June 1. After they talked for nearly two hours, Trump respectfully escorted his visitor to the car and told reporters: Get ready to travel to Singapore next Friday after the “good will” shown by Pyongyang. The summit with Kim Jong-un would not be a one-day event, he said, but the start of a process of negotiation. Trump also disclosed a plan to mark the end of the Korean war after nearly 70 years.

He said Kim had sent him “a very nice letter,” but then denied having opened it yet. Trump’s talks with Kim Yong Chol, North Korea’s former spymaster,  ranged over sanctions, denuclearization, political and security guarantees for the regime and the prosperity awaiting North Korea after denuclearization – in support of which he said Japan, South Korea and China would be involved. He noted that they did not discuss human rights.
Asked by reporters to comment on Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov’s visit to Pyongyang Thursday and his advice to North Korea to give up nuclear weapons,  only in return for the phased lifting of US sanctions, Trump said, “if the Russians are positive, I’m happy. I hope they are.” He also commented later: “We have hundreds more sanctions which we have held back because we are talking. You will see how powerful our sanctions are for Iran.”

DEBKAfile: The signing of a peace treaty for ending the Korean war is widely interpreted as closing down the demilitarized zone dividing the two Koreas since the war ended in the 1953 armistice accord. This in turn may augur the start of the historic process of reunification.

      Agreed, but first let us see the results of the meeting!

      TELL YOU WHAT – It is because Trump came to the Wall. He’s now better inspired and piling up astonishing results like none before! God bless America, and God bless Israel! Also, the World, to some extend.

        Israel? Is that Israel, the man, Israel, the people, Israel, the ten, Israel, the goyim or ‘Israel’ the idolatrous jewish territorial apartheid state entity, in Palestine, AKA ‘the lawless one?

        LOL, you and your silly wall. JeSuS will knock your silly wall right down, jew bollocks.

        Yeshaya 30

        8. Now, come write it on a tablet with them, and on a book engrave it, and it shall be for the last day, forever to eternity.

        12. Therefore, so said the Holy One of Israel, “Because you have despised this matter, and you have put your trust in oppression and a perverse one, and you have relied upon it.

        13. Therefore, this iniquity shall be to you as a breach of a falling [wall], revealed in a fortified wall, whose breach will come suddenly.”

        14. And He shall break it like the breaking of a potter’s jug, crushed without pity, and in its crushing shall not be found a shard, to scoop fire from a hearth, or to scoop water from a cistern.

        Yeshaya 45:9 ” … … Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth.

        15. For so said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel “With tranquility and restfulness shall you be saved, with quietude and trust shall be your might; but you did not want.

          You’re so good at “cherry picking” the Scripture leaving out context to support your hatred for Israel. Obviously, you don’t quote the whole chapter because it contradicts your agenda. Stop dragging the name of the Lord for He doesn’t think the way you do. May He forgive you for your twisting His word and misusing His name.

          mr “jesus”, your rant reminded me very much of shimei’s rant to king david, in 2 samuel 16:5-8. It did not go unpunished, even though it contained a measure of truth.

        The AYATOLLAH KHAMENEI threats are the very reason why Iran cannot be allowed to have a Nuclear Weapon until they remove him and change the Regime while Persian People Hearts overcome those of this “Billionaire Religious Corrupt of Criminal Antisocial Gang.

        “Our stance against Israel is the same stance we have always taken. #Israel is a malignant cancerous tumor in the West Asian region that has to be removed and eradicated: it is possible and it will happen.” 7/31/91#GreatReturnMarch
        — Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir) June 3, 2018

        The above Twitter by Iranian Billionaire Khamenai reminds me of Pharaoh’s Harden Heart that resulted in Moses said to Pharaoh: “Thus said the Lord: ‘Israel is my firstborn son, so I say to you, “Let My son go that he may worship Me,” yet you refuse to let him go. Now YHWH will slay your first-born son.”

        G-d-Jehovah-Allah saw fit to place the very Curse Egypt Threaten First-Born Sons of Abraham and instead the very Curse came back on Egypt and Pharaoh’s Own Son. The same thing will happen to Iran’s Corrupted Elite and indeed could happen when Persians Azeris, Kurds, Arabs, and Baluchis rise up against this morally dishonest perverted Islamic False Prophets. As the Republican Guards are Servants that take Money they can be paid to help overthrow and save Iran from this Ayatollah and his Minions of Hate and Abuse of Fellow Persians.

      The only thing achieved so far is legitimizing a dictator and murderer. The conman is far more likely to end up in jail.

    “You will see how powerful our sanctions are for Iran.”….. This is very bad attitude for such a fancy hair cut Trump, our ayatollah will surely give order to burn possibly up to 100 Amerika flags for it, and we will enjoy chanting all kind of insults in a big demonstration march in Tehran very soon!

    Trump/ Us is on the right track to rid the world of the North Korean nuclear terrorist regim…despite Rusia’s and China’s continues efforts to sabotage that

    The Koreans themselves will solve among themselves what some in America, China, Japan, and Asia may not want to accept but have to live with it. Korea like Sicily has been one of the most victims of conquests that caused them to rely on families ties better than trusting Multiple Foreign Invaders. even today, many Families in South Korea send Money and Goods to their Families Members in the North. There are only three options left now. 1. Continued sanctions that can be intercepted at will and undermine the current Regime. 2. A Mutual Agreement that will enhance North and South Relations with America-Asian, Russia-China-Asian support and less say among the Korean People, or outright War that would be Asian Devastation more so than anywhere else. China is Buying up Siberia and that has not gone unnoticed by Russia, North Korea, Vietnam, Philippines and all of Asia. The Pacific is still an America Navy Lake while the Pacific Rim could catch Fires of their own making and not just from Earthquakes, Tsuminai and Volcanoes. The Echoes of Past Conflicts caused many Korean Dialects to confuse all Discussions. Let the Koreans work it out with Help, Advice and Aide but not Dictates that Disconnect. This is a time for a Brave New Global Renaissance and not just a Pathway for all of Asia and the Middle East, but the World.

      Someone gave me 2 Pingbacks and link my Post to a Website without my Permission and on that Website had many misinformation so I am responding to one only on the name Palestine Versus Israel, Philistine or Judea as it was known. Let me correct their record: “After the defeat of Judea’s Uprising Leader Bar Kokhba (132–135 CE) the Roman Emperor Hadrian was determined to wipe out the identity of Israel-Judah-Judea, and renamed it Syria Palaestina.” Until that time the area had been called “Province of Judea ‘(Roman Judea). by the Romans.” Additionally, The word of “The Land of “Gaza” comes from the Hebrew “Azzah,” loosely meaning strong city. The entire region is named for its Capital City, which has been conquered many times over the centuries. Among its many rulers were the “Philistines.” The theme of “Strength” is indirectly connected to Gaza in the Bible. Moreover, the name Esau is a Hebrew baby name. In Hebrew the meaning of the name Esau is, “Hairy.” Famous Bearer of the Old Testament Esau sold his birthright to his twin brother Jacob in Genesis. On the north of Edom was the territory of Moab. The boundary between Moab and Edom was the Wadi Zered. The ancient capital of Edom was Bozrah. According to Genesis, Esau’s descendants settled in this land after displacing the Horites. Furthermore, according to Joshua 13:3 and 1 Samuel 6:17, the land of the Philistines (or Allophyloi), called Philistia, was a “Pentapolis” in the southwestern Levant comprising the five city-states of “Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Ekron, and Gath,” from Wadi Gaza in the south to the Yarqon River in the North.
