Korea talks could be in the DMZ

Korea talks could be in the DMZ

South Korea was dismissed as a venue because of apparent concerns it could highlight Seoul's role in enabling the historic meeting and take the spotlight away from Trump.

Moon responded that "President Trump can take the Nobel prize.

We're also looking at various other countries, including Singapore", he said.

But some seemed skeptical about the president's chances to actually win the prize, including his own son.

Trump said he "personally" thinks the upcoming meeting will be a success. It's still unclear exactly when that meeting will happen.

Now, after Kim has become the first North Korean leader to set foot on South Korean soil, Trump's planned meeting is increasingly important, with some pundits suggesting that the pair could sort out an action-ready plan for North Korean denuclearization and general peace on the peninsula before the year's end.

Additional reporting from Newsy affiliate CNN.

Under the US -led "maximum pressure" campaign, North Korea has been slapped with some of the strictest sanctions to date over its nuclear weapons program.

The suggestion comes on the heels of Moon's landmark summit with current North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Friday, at which the two pledged to end hostilities between their countries and work toward the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula.

United States and North Korean officials are still negotiating the timing and location of the possible summit.

"As you are all aware, the worldwide community has shown nothing but welcome and support to this historic summit, " the envoy said.

Although North Korea has a history of breaking its commitments to the U.S., Mr. Trump said Mr. Kim "has been very open and very straightforward so far". Moon's spokesman said Kim commented he hopes to convince Trump he is "not the person" to fire missiles at the United States.

Moon has previously credited Trump with making a "huge" contribution to bringing the North and South together for the landmark talks.

"The good news is, everybody wants us", Trump said while praising the possibilities of the demilitarized zone.

But by positioning Trump as the ultimate man of peace, as the master negotiator Trump portrays himself has (despite very limited evidence to back it up), Moon is hoping to nudge the USA president away from confrontation, and toward tangible peacemaking achievements. "Just asking!" Mr Trump tweeted.

The question of the US troop presence is not legally tied to a peace treaty since the United States has a bilateral mutual defense treaty with South Korea.

The historical Peace House had hosted the signing of the armistice that ended the Korean war in 1953.
