Kang saidSouth Korea wanted the sanctions to stay in place until Pyongyang takes "visible, meaningful action" to get rid of its nuclear weapons.
But it's an enormous risk for a president who has shown a knack for walking away from deals like the Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear agreement but little acumen at putting new ones together. It is not clear what, if anything, North Korea will agree to at the summit or what Kim means by denuclearization. "We have a shared vision for what we hope when this process is completed the Korean peninsula looks like".

She also underlined that USA forces in the Republic of Korea have "played a crucial role for deterrence and peace and stability" and said the presence of troops in the area is a matter for the alliance between the US and South Korea "first and foremost".

With the final details in place, the meeting will become the first ever meeting between a sitting USA president and North Korean leader.
