He then appeared on a list of passengers set to depart for NY on Air China flight CA981 at 1300 local time on Wednesday, and was photographed by the Associated Press at Beijing Capital Airport.

But negotiations between the two countries have continued, including talks Sunday at the Korean demilitarized zone.

It's not really North Korean leader Kim Jong-un walking the streets of Singapore awaiting talks with President Trump in anticipation of their on-again-off-again-on-again summit on denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, but he sure is a convincing look-alike.

Yonhap said it is "widely expected" that Kim Yong-chol would travel to the US "to reciprocate recent visits" by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

His move resulted in flurry of activities by the North Koreans, who then said that Pyongyang was willing to hold the meeting anytime in any form.

Gas prices continue to rise as Memorial Day approaches
DEHAAN: We can point the finger at OPEC, who, for the last 17 months, has been producing less oil to drive the price of oil up. According to AAA , the highest gas price ever recorded in California was $4.67 a gallon in October 2012.

Kim Yong Chol would be the most senior North Korean official to visit the U.S. in 18 years. "That was short-lived leverage for the U.S. That was a mistake".

Washington wants North Korea to quickly give up all its nuclear weapons in a verifiable way in return for sanctions and economic relief. North Korean leaders play hard to get before making conciliatory gestures and were taken off guard by Trump's abrupt withdrawal, Lee said, but the president should have pressed his advantage.

Trump sent a letter last week to Kim Jong Un saying the summit scheduled for June 12 would not happen, blaming what he said was "tremendous anger and open hostility" shown in a statement by the North Korean leader. US officials familiar with planning said he was scheduled to meet with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday.

Kim Yong Chol was expected to arrive tomorrow in NY.

Trump confirmed that he was on his way to NY. Trump had mused that Kim's "attitude" had changed after the North Korean's surprise visit to China two weeks ago, suggesting China was pushing Kim away from the table. The AP had spotted him at an airport in Beijing on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump has confirmed a top North Korean general is headed for the United States in what would be the highest-profile visit in years.

Kim Chang-son's earlier visit to Beijing sparked speculations - most notably from South Korean lawmaker Rep. Park Jie-won - of another meeting between Kim Jong-un and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Trump signaled that preparations for a June 12 summit with Kim were going ahead, despite having called it off last week, and a White House team was scheduled to depart for Singapore this weekend to prepare for the possible summit.

But aides nearly immediately suggested the meeting could still get back on track.

The White House emphasized that it has remained in close contact with South Korean and Japanese officials as preparations for the talks continue.

Since the 1970s, the United States and South Korea have been holding a major summertime exercise called Ulchi Freedom Guardian that involves tens of thousands of troops.
