AP PROVIDES ACCESS TO THIS PUBLICLY DISTRIBUTED HANDOUT

US officials have not confirmed that the three men are out of North Korea's notorious prison camps, but Rudy Giuliani, who recently joined the White House legal team, told Fox News on Thursday that the North was "releasing three prisoners today".

Mr Kim spoke about some words of wisdom that his father, former North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Il, gave to him upon seeing the woman who would become North Korea's first lady, President Kim's wife Ri Sol-ju.

China prefers quieter diplomacy, it said, pointing to the secrecy surrounding Kim's meeting with Xi.

Mr Kim told the Chinese Government's top diplomat, State Councillor Wang Yi, on Thursday that he is committed to denuclearisation, China's Foreign Ministry said, as diplomatic efforts to bring lasting peace to the Korean Peninsula gather pace.

"China is undoubtedly eager to hear what Kim's plan is for his meeting with Donald Trump", said Bonnie Glaser, a China specialist at the Washington-based Centre for Strategic and International Studies.

"China is willing to strengthen communication with North Korea and continue to play a positive role in seeking a political solution to the Korean peninsula issue", Wang said. "I can't comment any further at this point", Sanders said in an interview with Fox News.

South Korean Moon Jae-inhas asked the United Nationsto verify the planned closure of North Korea's nuclear test site, a UN Spokesmansaid today.

After the meeting, Seoul and Pyongyang confirmed in a joint declaration a common goal of complete denuclearization and agreed to push for multilateral talks to turn the current armistice agreement into a peace treaty. The meeting of the two leaders signalled a major change in North Korea's relations with the rest of the world and sparked hope that conditions for North Korean citizens-and particularly Christians-can begin to improve.

President Moon Jae-in, who recently set with Kim Jong Un, the North Korean leader in a historic summit, has clarified that presence of USA forces have nothing to do with the peace treaty.

North Korea announced on Sunday that it would close its main nuclear test site next month but some United States officials are skeptical that Pyongyang will give up its nuclear arsenal. On Monday, Mr. Trump suggested the Korean Demilitarized Zone could be a possible option to host the eventual talks, calling it an "intriguing" choice.

That same day, the Financial Times reported that the men had been released from the labor camps where they had been held since their arrests.

While the White House has yet to confirm the prisoners' releases, according to the Financial Times, the USA will be able to return the detainees home on or before the planned summit between the two nations.
