  • Trump welcomes Americans home

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un meets with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in this May 9, 2018, photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency in Pyongyang on May 10, 2018.

During the trip, Pompeo met with dictator Kim Jong Un, whom he told the press on Friday that he had a "good" and "substantive" conversation with.

Both leaders are likely to meet in Singapore, according to a USA official.

But White House aides have been eying Singapore, a tiny island nation of 5.6 million that boasts one of the most advanced economies in Southeast Asia. Additionally, the USA, as well as, Pyongyang have missions in the country.

CNN reported Wednesday that administration officials have been instructed to move forward with plans to convene that meeting in Singapore, according to two people familiar with the plans. "They take great pride in being a friend to all".

As they got off the plane, they were in great spirits though clearly exhausted. "They're from Iran and not other countries".

KELEMEN: Yeah. I mean, he spent more time with Kim Jong Un than any other US official for sure.

After months of fiery rhetoric and increasingly strong global sanctions, Trump and Kim are set to meet in Singapore on June 12 to discuss denuclearization.

Trump and Pompeo both said meetings with Kim went well.

The president thanked Kim for the release of the three Americans.

Hours after Mr. Trump announced the location and date of the summit, the White House cautioned against any new provocative behaviour by Pyongyang.

Singapore has enjoyed an increasingly close relationship with the United States.

The sovereign city-state and island country of Singapore is known for its security.

Ironically enough, the two countries don't even agree on that history. "So we're not talking about sanctions relief at this point", he said.

June 11th, the eve of the planned summit, falls on the 25th anniversary of the US-North Korea joint statement that was adopted following talks between the 2 countries in NY. They arrived with Pompeo who was in North Korea to secure their release. Trump has said any deal will have to include the denuclearization of the rogue nation.

Trump greeted the Americans when they landed early Thursday morning at Joint Base Andrews just outside Washington, D.C.

"I really think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful", Trump said.

"I think that we have a shared vision for what we hope".

"As we have achieved in our maximum pressure campaign of getting people to kick out North Korean diplomats, North Koreans all around the world, that has put pressure on North Korea", she said.

"I'm sorry, but I think that is a unsafe way to think".
