Korean and US Presidents to Have Summit Just after US-N

Rehearsals and realism as North and South Korean leaders prepare to meet

The Jogye Order, the country's largest Buddhist sect, had a ceremony to toll the bronze bell in its main Jogye Temple, central Seoul, 33 times Thursday morning, with its leader Ven.

After signing the guestbook and taking a photo together at Peace House, the venue for Friday's summit, the two leaders will start formal talks at 10:30 a.m. (0130 GMT).

Pompeo, Trump's pick to become secretary of state, came back from Pyongyang privately describing the young North Korean leader as "a smart guy who's doing his homework" for the meetings, according to one US official, who described Pompeo's personal view of Kim for the first time.

A study published last month by the journal, authored by a team led by Liu Junqing at the natural disaster bureau in Jilin province along the border with North Korea, found similar results of the September 3 explosion.

Trump and Kim are expected to meet either in May or June, and the decision to hold the location could be reached as early as this week.

"Unlike in the past, the delegation includes top military official and diplomats", Im said.

Danny Farquhar Will Be Hospitalized For At Least Three Weeks
Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that Farquhar is expected to remain in the hospital for at least the next three weeks. The pitcher remained in the ICU on Sunday and is in critical, but stable condition.

He is ruthless enough to have had relatives executed but now feels secure enough in power to gamble on Trump, they said.

Cameras wielded by one of the most aggressive media contingents on the planet will fire live images of a man used to controlling every aspect of his public persona into the homes and onto the phones of millions of people around the world - though it's not yet clear if it will be seen instantly in North Korea.

Singapore maintains friendly but neutral relations with both North Korea and the United States, and the distance between Pyongyang and the city-state is 4,700 kilometers - well within the range of Kim's Chammae-1, which can only fly stably for up to around 5,000 kilometers.

US intelligence analysts have spent years examining Kim's family history, speeches, photos and video, and they are now closely analyzing images and reports of his recent high-profile meetings with South Korean and Chinese officials. A banquet and farewell ceremony will follow in the evening before Mr Kim returns to the North.

The two leaders will then go for a short, informal walk before resuming talks.

The most hard part, Im said, centers on North Korea's level of denuclearization commitment.

According to the Seoul National University Institute for Peace and Unification Studies (IPUS)'s annual Unification Perception Survey, 11.8 percent of respondents in 2007 said they preferred the North-South status quo stay in place.
