U.S. hopes Koreas' summit will lead to peace, prosperity on peninsula: White House

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, left, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in walk together at the border village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone

The White House expressed hope Thursday that the two Koreas' summit will lead to peace and prosperity on the peninsula.

"On the occasion of Republic of Korea President Moon Jae-in's historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, we wish the Korean people well," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. "We are hopeful that talks will achieve progress toward a future of peace and prosperity for the entire Korean Peninsula."
The United States also looks forward to continuing "robust discussions" with South Korea to prepare for a planned meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Kim and appreciates the allies' close coordination, the statement said.

Round-up of important news stories from major Korean dailies today:

The Korea Post media (www.koreapost.com) in English, (www.koreapost.co.kr) in Korean.

Leaders of two Koreas set for historic summit

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un were set to hold a summit Friday that may mark the start of an often tried but failed attempt to rid the communist North of its nuclear ambitions.They are scheduled to meet at 9:30 a.m. (KST) when Kim crosses the Military Demarcation Line to the South Korean side of the border village of Panmunjom, inside the heavily fortified Demilitarized Zone, according to the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae.Kim left Pyongyang early Friday, the North's official Korean Central News Agency reported."Kim Jong-un will open-heartedly discuss with Moon Jae In all the issues arising in improving inter-Korean relations and achieving peace, prosperity and reunification of the Korean peninsula," it said.Moon was set to head for Panmunjom at around 8 a.m., according to a Cheong Wa Dae official.

N.K. leader to 'open-heartedly' talk with Moon at summit: state media

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will "open-heartedly" discuss pending inter-Korean issues with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at a historic summit Friday, the North's state media said.The North's leader left Pyongyang early Friday for a summit that will be held for the first time at the border truce village of Panmunjom, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said in an exceptionally swift manner.Kim "will open-heartedly discuss with (President) Moon Jae-in all the issues arising in improving inter-Korean relations and achieving peace, prosperity and reunification of the Korean Peninsula," the report said.The KCNA reported details about agenda items for the talks, but it did not mention North Korea's denuclearization.The North's denuclearization is one of the three main agenda items for the summit that also include the establishment of a permanent peace on the peninsula and an improvement in inter-Korean ties.

N.K. leader Kim revs up high-stakes diplomacy

With a "nuclear button" and unchallenged authority at home, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is now looking beyond his borders, forging ahead with a diplomatic adventure that could turn his country from an introvert into a player of geostrategic significance, experts said Thursday.Friday's summit between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will be the centerpiece of a flurry of diplomatic outreach apparently aimed at easing global sanctions, shoring up his country's debilitated economy and further cementing his grip on power.The summit, along with Kim's planned encounter with U.S. President Donald Trump in May or June, will also be a touchstone that will shed light on how willing Kim is to take steps towards denuclearization and lasting peace on the peninsula, the twin goals that have bedeviled Seoul and Washington for decades.

White House Releases Photos of Meeting between Pompeo, Kim Jong-un

The White House on Thursday released photos of a recent secret meeting between U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released two photos on her Twitter account, just hours after U.S. President Donald Trump revealed details of the surprise meeting during a telephone interview with the "Fox and Friends" television show. Trump said that Pompeo's meeting with Kim wasn't planned and the pair were together for more than an hour and "got along." Trump said that Pompeo also spoke with his counterparts in North Korea and they had a great meeting, adding it was very secret and very quiet.

'Possible Locations for US-N. Korea Summit: Swiss, Sweden, Singapore, Mongolia, Guam'

Five possible locations for a summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un are reported to be Switzerland, Sweden, Singapore, Mongolia and Guam.A diplomatic source familiar with U.S.-North Korea relations told Yonhap News on Thursday that Geneva, Stockholm, Singapore, Ulaanbaatar and Guam were mentioned as possible venues by Trump. Trump told Fox News on Thursday that three or four possible dates were being considered for his summit with Kim, adding there are five possible locations, which will be narrowed down. Four of the five suggestions are neutral nations, excluding the U.S. territory of Guam.

Yonhap (http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr)

Trump says 3 or 4 dates being tossed for Kim summit

U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday that three or four dates are under review for his potential meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.Trump also told "Fox and Friends" that there are five possible venues for the summit, but did not elaborate."We have a decision to be made. We have three or four dates and that includes locations," he said in a phone interview. "We have five locations and that will all be narrowed down."Trump has said he will meet Kim in May or early June to talk about the denuclearization of the regime. He has also said he will walk away if the meeting is unlikely to be "fruitful.""So it could be that I walk out quickly -- with respect, but it could be," Trump told the show. "It could be that maybe the meeting doesn't even take place. Who knows? But I can tell you right now they want to meet."

Moon-Kim summit to focus on denuclearization, peace, inter-Korean ties

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will strive to produce meaningful agreements on three main issues -- denuclearization, peace and inter-Korean cooperation -- during their historic summit at the border village of Panmunjom on Friday.Moon's office Cheong Wa Dae announced the list of the key agenda items for the third inter-Korean summit after preparatory meetings with the North's officials.Officials here expect a landmark joint statement, which they hope will be named the Panmunjom declaration, to open a new chapter in regional security conditions.Denuclearization is the number one topic, a touchstone of the summit's success, especially as Kim plans to hold a separate meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in the coming weeks.It is significant that the leaders of the two Koreas have put the nuclear issue on the bargaining table at all. Pyongyang has long argued that its nuclear arsenal is aimed at protecting it from Washington's "hostile" policy.

NK leader to 'open-heartedly' talk with Moon at summit: state media

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will "open-heartedly" discuss pending inter-Korean issues with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at a historic summit Friday, the North's state media said.The North's leader left Pyongyang early Friday for a summit that will be held for the first time at the border truce village of Panmunjom, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said in an exceptionally swift manner.Kim "will open-heartedly discuss with (President) Moon Jae-in all the issues arising in improving inter-Korean relations and achieving peace, prosperity and reunification of the Korean Peninsula," the report said.The KCNA reported details about agenda items for the talks, but it did not mention North Korea's denuclearization.

Who are nine NK officials accompanying Kim Jong-un?

Expectations for Friday’s inter-Korean summit have been heightened by the caliber of his nine-member entourage. The North’s delegation includes a total of nine senior party, military and government officials, including Kim Yo-jong, the first vice department director of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea’s central committee, and Kim Yong-nam, the North’s ceremonial head of state, chief presidential secretary Im Jong-seok told a news briefing Thursday. According to experts, Kim’s pick shows that he is entering negotiations with President Moon Jae-in with a focus on denuclearization, easing of military tensions and expansion of sports and culture exchanges.

Kim Jong-un to be first NK leader to review S. Korea military guard

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will inspect the South Korean military honor guard before holding a summit with President Moon Jae-in on Friday, marking the first North Korea leader to be greeted by the South Korean military. According to Cheong Wa Dae and the Defense Ministry, the military honor guard will hold a welcoming ceremony for Moon and Kim at the South Korean territory inside the truce village of Panmunjeom. Escorted by ceremonial guards in traditional costume, the two Korea’s leaders will inspect military guards from the Army, Navy and Air Force. The ceremony will continue until Moon and Kim enter into the Peace House, which serves as the summit venue.

World to watch historic summit

All eyes will be on Korea Friday as the leaders of the two countries meet at 9:30 a.m. for a historic summit that may pave the way for a resolution to North Korea's decades-long nuclear weapons program. President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will have their first encounter when the latter crosses the military demarcation line on foot to the summit venue, the Peace House, a building on the southern side of the truce village of Panmunjeom.The two leaders will discuss denuclearizing the North and establishing permanent peace on the Korean Peninsula. Unlike two previous inter-Korean summits in 2000 and 2007, this meeting is taking place at a time when Pyongyang's nuclear technology has become much more advanced and military tensions on the peninsula has been heightened.What agreement the two leaders make and how they do it will decide whether Kim's following summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in May or June will produce a meaningful outcome in resolving the nuclear issue.

Panmunjeom: Standing witness to decades of border history

The heads of the two Koreas meet at Panmunjeom today, the first inter-Korean leaders' summit in 11 years and the first at the border village divided in two by the military demarcation line (MDL). North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will cross the MDL to the south side of Panmunjeom to meet his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in around 9.30 a.m. They will begin their historic summit at 10.30 a.m. in the Peace House. A state dinner also will be held at the venue. The meeting has attracted the largest media contingent ever to an inter-Korean summit, with almost 3,000 reporters from South Korean and around the world covering the event. Panmunjeom is known as the truce village where China, North Korea and the United Nations Command (UNC) signed the armistice that brought the Korean War to a halt in 1953.

Leaders of 2 Koreas Meet at Border
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un walked across the heavily armed border at 9:30 a.m. Friday morning for a historic meeting with President Moon Jae-in in the truce village of Panmunjom. The two leaders will sit down for talks in the morning and the afternoon before a joint announcement expected around 6:30 p.m. This is only the third summit between leaders of the two Koreas. President Kim Dae-jung met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-il in 2000 and President Roh Moo-hyun also met Kim in 2007. But this is the first time that a North Korean leader has crossed the border and come to South Korea.Some of the proceedings will be broadcast live.

S.Korea, U.S. in Close Consultation Ahead of Summits
National Security Council chief Chung Eui-yong met with his U.S. counterpart John Bolton for about an hour in Washington on Tuesday, presidential spokesman Yoon Young-chan told reporters Wednesday. Chung was originally expected to visit North Korea ahead of Friday's cross-border summit to discuss denuclearization, but ended up heading to the U.S. instead. He apparently discussed the issue of North and South Korea signing a declaration ending the Korean War.

Yoon told reporters that Chung "fine-tuned opinions about the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the post-summit situation." President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump will speak on the telephone following Friday's summit, Yoon added. Moon is also scheduled to head to the U.S. in May ahead of a meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.Close consultation between Seoul and Washington are essential so they do not end up at cross purposes in their summits with North Korea.


Japan Flaps Over Dokdo Dessert at Inter-Korean Summit
The Japanese government has protested against the South Korean government's decision to serve a dessert at the inter-Korean summit with a map of the Korean Peninsula that includes the Dokdo islets. According to Japanese media on Wednesday, Kenji Kanasugi, the Japanese Foreign Ministry's director-general for Asian and Oceania affairs, called in Lee Hee-seop, a diplomat at the South Korean Embassy in Tokyo, to lodge a protest. Japan insists on a flimsy colonial-era claim to the Korean islets that has poisoned relations for years. Tokyo's beady eye spotted the detail when Cheong Wa Dae unveiled the menu, and it was sufficiently outraged for the Japanese Embassy in Seoul also to lodge a complaint with the Foreign Ministry here.

President Moon expected to meet with Trump again in mid-May

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and US President Donald Trump will be meeting again in the middle of next month. Chronologically speaking, this will be somewhere between the inter-Korean summit on Apr. 27 and the North Korea-US summit that is likely to happen in late May or early June. During their summit, Trump and Moon are expected to discuss the results of the inter-Korean summit, which will involve the discussion of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and a peace regime, and to talk about strategies for the success of the North Korea-US summit.

Public gets advanced showing of historic inter-Korean summit site

The Korean public has gotten its first glimpse of the site of the inter-Korean summit scheduled for Apr. 27, which will turn a new page in history. On Apr. 25, the Blue House released information about the meeting room, located in the House of Peace in Panmunjeom. Instead of a square table, the room contains an oval table symbolizing harmony, and there is a painting of Mt. Kumgang on the wall. The information and explanation provided by the Blue House allows us to imagine what will happen between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Experts choose “peace” as buzzword for inter-Korean summit

On Apr. 23 and 24, the Hankyoreh asked experts in the areas of inter-Korean relations, foreign policy and security to provide a keyword symbolizing the inter-Korean summit on their own, rather than selecting one from a list. Of the 30 experts who responded to the questionnaire, 12 (40%) said “peace.” Four (13%) of them chose “denuclearization,” while four others came up with a phrase that combined “denuclearization” and “peace” or “peace regime.” There were also two experts (7%) who selected “guide.” A variety of symbolic terms were chosen by the remaining eight, including “unification,” “anti-war,” “turning point,” “coexistence” and “Panmunjeom.”

Although his father Kim Jong-il held the first two inter-Korean summits, he made two South Korean presidents — Kim Dae-Jung and Roh Moo-hyun — visit him in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang. Kim, accompanied by delegates, walked between low blue buildings known as T2 an T3 that function as meeting rooms for the Military Armistice Commission.South Korean President Moon Jae-in was waiting at the military demarcation line (MDL) bisecting Panmunjom. Kim and Moon shook hands with the MDL between them, before Kim made cross into South Korea.After shaking hands and posing for pictures from the South Korean side, Kim then invited Moon to step across the MDL and spend a few moments on North Korean soil. Moon agreed.

The press center is over 10,000 square meters (107,000 square feet), the size of a football stadium, and will operate around the clock through Saturday morning. It officially opened on Thursday.

GM agrees to stay 10 more years in Korea

GM headquarters and the Korean government reached an agreement yesterday that will keep the automaker here for at least 10 more years.GM and the government also agreed to invest $7.15 billion in the local unit.

Selecting and Excluding the News: Naver Fails to Silence Allegations of Being a Lopsided Forum
The previous government tried to rearrange and edit the news articles on web portals, and agencies that acted on behalf of those with political power, such as the National Intelligence Service and the military's Cyber Command, manipulated online comments while remaining hidden from the public eye. There are people in the private sector who are busy trying to change the search word ranking and manipulating the number of likes on online comments on web portals using Macro. These actions are triggered from the belief that they can control public opinion as long as they dominate the portal sites.

The Wage Gap Between Regular and Non-regular Workers Remains
A recent survey showed that the wages of non-regular workers approached 70% of that of regular workers. According to the Labor Status According to Employment Methods for June 2017 released on April 25 by the Ministry of Employment and Labor, the hourly wages of non-regular workers was 13,053 won, 69.3% of the wages of regular workers (18,835 won). Fortunately, the gap narrowed considerably compared to the 55.5% in 2008, when the survey was first launched. But we are still far from a fundamental solution to the problem. We should also keep in mind that the wage gap decreased because of the increase in the minimum wage. The problem of non-regular workers, which compresses all the contradictions of the South Korean society, cannot be solved by simply raising the minimum wage.

President Moon to Greet Chairman Kim at the Military Demarcation Line (MDL)

On April 24, Cheong Wa Dae announced that President Moon Jae-in would greet Kim Jong-un, chairman of North Korea's State Affairs Commission in front of the Military Demarcation Line (MDL) at Panmunjom at around 10 a.m. April 27.
