  • U.S. President Donald Trump waves after he arrived at the White House

This graphic image shows U.S. President Donald Trump (R) and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

"Pyongyang Time" was created as tensions between the authoritarian country and the US grew over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program and global sanctions aimed at dismantling it.

Trump had previously suggested that the demilitarised zone between the two Koreas - the site of a recent summit between Kim and Moon - could also be an appropriate venue for his meeting with the North's leader.

Trump's "leadership and his maximum pressure policy together with worldwide solidarity brought us to this juncture", Moon's National Security Adviser Chung Eui-Yong told reporters in March. South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported the military assets include eight U.S. F-22 stealth fighter jets recently sent to participate in the annual joint South Korea-U.S. air training.

Hundreds of inspectors would be needed to oversee the dismantlement of North Korea's nuclear facilities and weapons, the New York Times reported Sunday.

Others have also called for the president to receive a Nobel Peace Prize for his leadership in dealing with North Korea, including 18 House Republicans who all formally nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize last week in a letter addressed to the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

But "it is also familiar ground for the North Koreans", according to Graham, having hosted earlier track-2, or backchannel, talks involving officials from the country.

"This act can not be construed otherwise than a unsafe attempt to ruin the hard-won atmosphere of dialogue and bring the situation back to square one", he said. The president stated that in anticipation of the talk, he has had to restrain himself from making certain comments about Kim Jong Un, particularly restraining from calling him "Rocket Man".

Instagram to Soon Allow Direct Shopping and Payments Inside the App
With in-app payments, Instagram is one step closer to becoming the leading online shopping platform it always aspired to be. In March 2017, the company announced its plans to give business profiles the option to let users book their services.

Other less dramatic but notable signs of rapprochement have emerged nearly daily, including North Korea moving its clocks forward by 30 minutes early Saturday to match time with the South. "Now I'm trying to calm it down a little bit", he said.

"This third summit between the two leaders affirms the enduring strength of the United States-Republic of Korea alliance and the deep friendship between our two countries", the White House said in a statement. "I think you're going to see very good things", Mr Trump said.

Trump hinted at their impending release last week, tweeting, "Stay tuned!"
