He said reports that North Korea is considering a greater degree of economic openness have also fueled hopes that Dandong is well-situated to benefit from increased cross-border trade, even though North Korea has been under tough United Nations sanctions since December, following a string of nuclear weapons tests.

White House national security adviser John Bolton said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that North Korea's prospects are "unbelievably strong if they'll commit to denuclearization". He also wants to reconfirm Japan-U.S. cooperation over the abductions of Japanese nationals and North Korea's nuclear and missile development, before making swift decisions on Japan's policy regarding these issues. The meeting between President Trump and Secretary-General Guterres will reaffirm the commitment of the United States to improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the United Nations.

The new hotline has yet to be used by the leaders though Cheong Wa Dae officials earlier said the leaders of the two Koreas would likely hold their first telephone conversation when the date and location of the first-ever US-North Korea summit are released.

"The implementation of the decision means getting rid of all the nuclear weapons, dismantling them, taking them to Oak Ridge, Tennessee", Bolton said Sunday in an interview with ABC's "This Week". Pompeo praised this as "one step along the way".

"I've been on the job about five weeks", Bolton said. "There'll be more than that", Pompeo said.

To date, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has done nothing concrete.

While some have characterized our President's foreign affair philosophy as "predictably unpredictable" or a doctrine of "maximum pressure", one constant holds true, President Trump is a seasoned negotiator who brings a lifetime of business experience when he sits across the table from foreign leaders.
