Chilling line Donald Trump skipped in SOTU speech

Iraq angered by Trump idea to watch Iran from US base

"My relationship with Kim Jong-un is a good one...."

Experts say that North Korea will likely seek to offer the demolition of its Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center - North Korea's major nuclear site that houses a uranium enrichment facility and reactors - in exchange for a USA promise to formally declare an end to the 1950-53 Korean War and to open a liaison office in Pyongyang.

Moments after threatening a nuclear arms race with Russia, Trump explained how he believes his 2016 election saved the world.

USA 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 miracle could be yours", Pompeo said, addressing Kim.

In an interview with Bloomberg on January 18, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc had also said that Vietnam would be happy to host the second U.S-North Korea summit.

On Wednesday, the Blue House statement echoed his sentiment.

The United States and Vietnam normalized ties in 1995, decades after the end of the Vietnam War.

Even though North Korea has remained mired in Cold War isolation while Vietnam's postwar path led toward integration with the globalized economy, the two communist countries share a history of anti-imperialist struggle and ambivalent relations with common neighbour China.

The country could also pose as a good example for North Korea because it hasn't become a liberal democracy to be economically successful. That would require major changes to the North's personality cult and "juche" ideology of self sufficiency.

Trump, however, did not specify whether the meeting would be held in Danang or Hanoi, two cities that have been mentioned as potential venues.

If we'd continued in that FA Cup, I don't think we would have been able to play all the games. Of course they are. "There were different moments when we thought we could do this or that".

Iraqis in the capital Baghdad said U.S. army forces have been walking around the city accompanied by the Iraqi army, Al-Khaleej Online reported. They left after a few hours, the source said.

"[Vietnam] stands ready to actively contribute to [and] cooperate [with] relevant sides to ensure" the summit's success, the tweet continued.

"This is ridiculous: Trump claims that if he had not been elected we'd be in a major war with North Korea".

The Singapore summit yielded a vague commitment from Kim to work toward the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, where US troops have been stationed since the 1950-53 Korean War.

US intelligence chiefs believe there is little likelihood Kim will voluntarily give up his nuclear weapons or missiles capable of carrying them. Nuclear testing has stopped.

The three-year Korean War ended with an armistice that left the two Koreas technically still at war.

"It is contingent on progress of talks between North Korea and the United States but the possibility is low", he said.

US President Donald Trump's pledge on Sunday to keep American troops in Iraq has been condemned as "an insult" to national sovereignty, fuelling growing calls for Baghdad to expel "foreign forces".

Sanctions imposed by the United Nations and the U.S. have struck a major blow to North Korea's economy by limiting exports, leading to a sharp drop in the nation's foreign currency reserves, which enable the country to import essential products.
