  • Kono asks Moon to discuss abductions with Kim

North Korea's Supreme People's Assembly convened on Wednesday where state finances were discussed, North Korean state media reported on Thursday, while leader Kim Jong Un appeared to be absent from the proceedings.

At a meeting with governors and lawmakers at the White House, Trump acknowledged the preparations were under way.

Trump and Kim are expected to meet in May or June to talk about the denuclearization of the regime.

For decades, North Korea has dangled the prospect of "denuclearization" - freezing its nuclear weapons programs - but only if the United States withdraws its forces from South Korea.

Leader Kim Jong-un has attended six out of the eight Supreme People's Assembly sessions that were held since he came to power but was absent this time. I think it will be terrific.

China has been "really terrific in helping us get to some kind of a settlement", Trump added.

In the run-up to the summits, observers are looking to see whether there will be any indication from the assembly of a change in Pyongyang's policy of pursuing ballistic missile and nuclear weapon programs.

The Trump-Kim meeting, if realized, will follow an inter-Korean summit on April 27.

Kono expressed respect for South Korea's diplomatic efforts, and said he hopes to strengthen Japan's partnership with the country and trilateral ties of the 2 and the USA in working to denuclearize the North.

Last year, North Korea accused Pompeo of favoring such a policy after the Central Intelligence Agency director told a forum in July that it was important to separate the country's nuclear weapons from the "character who holds the control over them".
