Madeleine Albright 'stunned' by Trump's dressing down of intel chiefs

US President Donald Trump and the US national intelligence director Dan Coats

President Donald Trump says he'll announce next week the site and date for the second summit he's planning to hold with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un around the end of February.

Vietnam's capital Hanoi is being considered as a candidate venue, along with the Southeast Asian country's central coastal city of Da Nang.

The intelligence report in question-the Worldwide Threat Assessment released by Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats this week-seemingly contradicted many of Trump's claims about North Korea, Russia and the Islamic State militant group (ISIS).

"We have communicated to our North Korean counterparts that we are prepared to pursue, simultaneously and in parallel, all of the commitments our two leaders made in their joint statement at Singapore last summer", said Biegun. "Happily, we had a very good meeting, and we are all on the same page!".

The president told reporters at the White House: "I think most of you know where the location is".

The Special Representative is now set to visit South Korea on Sunday, in which he is expected to hold talks with ROK government counterpart Lee Do-hoon as well as North Korean officials.

According to South Korean government sources, Kim Hyok Chol now belongs to North Korea's State Affairs Commission and has always been considered an experienced diplomat in the country's foreign ministry.

State of Emergency Declared Over Washington Measles Outbreak
The tragedy is that the deadly disease and its consequences are nearly 100 percent preventable if the population is vaccinated. At least one case linked to the Washington outbreak had been reported in Oregon's Multnomah County as of Friday.

Christie says he warned Trump the Russian Federation investigation would not go away
He also did not hesitate to answer that he would have been a better president than his "friend of 17 years". The feud, however, dates back to the 2004 prosecution of Charles Kushner, a real estate magnet.

Trump has put great store by his personal relationship with Kim, whom he plans to meet in the near future for a second summit.

And they underscored again that Russian Federation meddled deeply on Trump's behalf in the 2016 presidential election - which he has repeatedly denied - and can be expected to do the same in 2020. "And I think it only proves something that troubles me deeply, is that this President is someone that doesn't want to learn". "If we are doing the right thing on nuclear weapons, it makes it a lot more conceivable that there would be a permanent peace regime on the Korean peninsula".

Mr Biegun said that the USA administration was "clear-eyed" and prepared for contingencies if talks fail.

"It's bigger than denuclearization, while it stands on the foundation of denuclearization, but that's the opportunity we have and those are the discussions we will be having with the North Koreans".

But negotiations have made little progress since then, with North Korea accusing the USA of failing to reciprocate after it took steps to dismantle some of its weapons facilities and freeze missile and nuclear tests. The U.S. suspends its nuclear arms deal with Russian Federation.

Additionally, North Korea released a bombshell statement in December, saying they won't give up their nuclear weapons unless the USA does so first.

Insisting that Iran's nuclear programme remains unsafe, Trump said his intelligence advisers -who believe Tehran is largely abiding by an global commitment to shelve nuclear weapons ambitions - should be more realistic. "That is correct. We didn't say we won't do anything until you do everything", he said.
