The South Korean government should press the United States to discuss the appalling human rights situation in North Korea when US President Donald Trump meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Human Rights Watch said today. "The word is that recently the Border has become much more porous and more has been filtering in. I want this to happen, and North Korea to be VERY successful, but only after signing!" he wrote.

North Korea has already indicated it could dodge economic sanctions and raise capital, despite being slapped with sanctions from Trump's "maximum pressure" campaign in 2018. -North Korea summit in Singapore on June 12.

Trump and Moon meet amid rising doubts on North Korea

North Korea also threatened to cancel the summit with Trump, but US officials cited Friday by The Wall Street Journal indicated that the USA agreed not to send nuclear-capable B-52 bombers to the joint exercise with South Korea because Pyongyang considers them provocative.

"If the Trump administration takes an approach to the DPRK-U.S. summit with sincerity for improved DPRK-U.S. relations, it will receive a deserved response from us", the statement read, according to the official Korean Central News Agency, using an acronym for North Korea's full title: the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. It first canceled high-level talks with the South, then warned that it would "never be easy to sit face to face again with the present regime of South Korea" and more ominously, rejected the names of South Korean journalists who were to cover the shutdown of the North's nuclear test site later this week. This first ministerial visit from India to North Korea in almost two decades was at the invitation of the North Korean government, but comes at a time when developments in the region have the potential to bring in a fundamental realignment in the balance of power.

The group that arrived by charter flight from Beijing is made up of media from the U.K., Russia, China and the United States.

"It's straight out of North Korea's playbook", the official said.

Other U.S. officials have privately expressed concern that Moon, eager to make progress with the North, may have overstated Kim's willingness to negotiate in good faith over the dismantling of his nuclear arsenal.

Zuckerberg agrees to face EU Parliament over Facebook data use
Zuckerberg has so far declined to appear, to the British lawmakers' annoyance. Some MEPs will likely be upset by the behind-closed-doors arrangement.

Oh says the warning came because North Korea believes its nuclear arsenal means it deserves more respect ahead of talks. On the other hand, China wants to avoid drawing North Korea closer to the USA and South Korea, exacerbating its own security concerns. However, since the summit was announced, Alperovitch has told CNN he expects that they would not launch an open destructive attack as they're trying to get the best possible outcome from the talks.
