Trump says summit with Kim won't be held in the DMZ

The three Americans that U.S. President Donald Trump said were released by North Korea and headed home on Wednesday may have similar stories to tell when they land at a military base outside Washington early Thursday morning.

And it follows a second surprise visit to North Korea from Pompeo to finalise plans for a historic summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. "They seem to be in good health", Trump said.

Kimg Hak-Song, who worked in the university, was step by step in may possibly 20 17 to get "hostile acts" towards North Korea, while Kim Dong chul was sentenced in April 2016 for 10 years in jail with hard labour for rates of espionage and subversion.

Japanese public broadcaster NHK had shown images of two North Korean aircraft taxiing at Dalian's airport, one an Air Koryo (North Korea's state-owned airline) plane and another carrying a North Korean emblem.

Their imprisonment has been widely criticised as political and an abuse of human rights and their potential release is considered a gesture of goodwill in advance of the summit. A status quo, it's worth noting, that means that the decades-long United States military presence in Korea will remain for decades more to come.

Pompeo, who previously made a secret trip to North Korea at Trump's request, is one of few Americans to have met Kim. "Through actual behaviour, let's show that we three nations support engaging in free trade".

Trump broke the news on Twitter Wednesday that the detainees were on their way back to the US with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

"People never thought you were going to have a situation where we're having serious and positive communications with North Korea".

Signs that the prisoners' release might be imminent emerged last week amid unconfirmed reports that the detainees had been moved from prisons to a hotel in or near the capital, Pyongyang.

"I had productive meetings in Pyongyang with Chairman Kim Jong-un and made progress".

South Korea's Yonhap news agency has reported that Mr Kim is in his late 50s and said he had been involved in relief activities for children in rural parts of North Korea.

"It will not be" at the DMZ, Trump said in response to a question from reporters at the end of a meeting with his Cabinet on Wednesday.

The president tweeted last month that the site may "be a more Representative, Important and Lasting site than a third party country". News of it did not emerge until just before his Senate confirmation vote less than two weeks ago.

The release capped a dramatic day of diplomacy in Pyongyang for Pompeo.

The fate of the detainees has been a key factor in the build up to the Trump-Kim meeting.

"I will be there to greet them", he said.

Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang aimed to lock down the date and venue for a formal announcement.

He stayed in Pyongyang for about 13 hours, during which he met Kim.

He said, however, that the meeting would not take place at the heavily fortified demilitarised zone between North and South Korea.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang attend the 6th JAPAN-CHINA-KOREA Business Summit in Tokyo, Japan May 9, 2018. But it was only after a North Korean emissary arrived a bit later to inform him that the release was confirmed.

Kim was quoted by China's official news agency Xinhua as saying on Monday, "I hope to build mutual trust with the US through dialogue".
