NK summit to be held February 27-28 in Vietnam

Iraq angered by Trump idea to watch Iran from US base

Kim Jong Un's move could therefore help him consolidate bilateral relations and also learn from Vietnam's economic transformation.

His remarks come as Trump and Kim are expected to discuss a concrete plan for how the North will implement steps to give up its nuclear weapons program and what the United States will offer as incentives to encourage such actions.

Trump met Kim in Singapore on June 12 in the first summit between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader.

Trump took heat for his previous summit with Kim in Singapore, where their historic June meeting resulted in a general statement about denuclearization.

"Though he didn't name a specific city or venue for the next summit, many observers think it'll be either Hanoi or Danang".

Venezuela's Guaido challenging Maduro through humanitarian aid
Guaido is trying to force Maduro from power, set up a transitional government and hold a new presidential poll. On Saturday, an air-force general defected to the opposition and reportedly fled to Colombia.

In response, Iraqi President Barham Salih said today that Trump did not ask Iraq's permission for U.S. troops stationed there to "watch Iran".

On Jan. 31, Biegun said the North Korean leader has committed to "the dismantlement and destruction of North Korea's plutonium and uranium enrichment facilities", in a speech at Stanford University.

Trump's meeting with Kim last June in Singapore produced a joint statement between the two leaders but no concrete plan for denuclearization.

Analysts say the trip, which is set to be Kim's first to Vietnam, could offer the North Korean leader a model of post-war economic transformation under a communist state with capitalist leanings. South Korea pays more than $800 million a year, but Trump has demanded that Seoul pay 50 per cent more.

"North Korea would also feel confident that Vietnam's security apparatus could secure Kim's protection", he said.

Tuesday forecast: Patchy freezing drizzle through tonight
A mix of patchy freezing drizzle, light freezing rain and snow is possible Thursday , the National Weather Service said. Northeast winds gusting up to 50 km/h will also generate local blowing snow, leading to reduced visibilities.

"It can be your miracle in North Korea as well".

CNN first broke the story last week, citing a senior administration official familiar with the matter.

US envoy Stephen Biegun is due to meet his North Korean counterpart Kim Hyok Chol on Pyongyang on Wednesday, as he attempts to push forward preparations for the summit and advance a plan to reinvigorate talks about denuclearization.

The upcoming summit could further bolster Vietnam's worldwide reputation and help it "attract tourism and foreign investment", Vu Minh Khuong, a policy analyst at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore, told the Agence France-Presse.

"North Korea relationship is best it has ever been with USA", he tweeted. Pyongyang also dismantled one of its test sites and made a significant effort to improve its relations with South Korea, despite the continued presence of 30,000 U.S. troops there. Nuclear testing has stopped. North Korea's leaders "ultimately view nuclear weapons as critical to survival", he said, summarizing findings in his office's "Worldwide Threat Assessment".
