Statues representing former North Korean leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il

This September 6, 2017 picture released from North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on September 7, 2017 shows Pyongyang residents and military people holding a celebration rally on the test of a hydrogen bomb for ICBM at Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang.

The past two summits in 2000 and 2007 were both held in Pyongyang.

In upcoming talks between the United States and North Korea, one of the key details is a mystery at a 7,200-foot-high point in the country's north: Mount Mantap.

South Korea Koreas Summit

The blast in September was the last test conducted at Punggye-ri, although there seems to be some debate over whether it remains functional.

Addressing tens of thousands of people at his weekly general audience, Pope Francis called for "transparent dialogue" between the two Koreas, urging the two leaders at the first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade to act with courage to foster regional and world peace.

The maximum pressure campaign of the Trump administration is working on North Korea, the White House said today, and ruled out any concession to Pyongyang right now.

North Korea analysis site 38 North, hosted by the U.S. -Korea Institute at John Hopkins University, published a commentary Monday that said the site was "fully operational". Russian Federation initially controlled the northern half of the Korean Peninsula after splitting it with the US after World War II, but soon gave the reigns to Kim's grandfather, who founded the notoriously secretive state, built an ideological blend of socialism and self-reliance that lives on today.

After they sign an agreement a joint statement will be issued. Russian Federation and China both aim for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, but are also deeply critical of growing US presence in the Pacific and have enhanced their own bilateral political and military ties as they rebalance global influence.

North Korean nuclear tests have caused seismic events in Chinese border towns and cities, forcing evacuations of schools and offices, sparking fears of wind-born radiation and leading to a backlash among some Chinese against their country's unpredictable traditional ally.

Kohli, de Villiers Taking Game Away From Delhi
The team RCB is led by Indian Cricket team captain Virat Kohli and the team Delhi Daredevils is led by Gautam Gambhir . But nothing has gone right for their teams so far and tonight will be a good opportunity to start a winning streak.

The Punggye-ri site is situated in mountainous terrain in North Korea's north-east, and tests have taken place in a system of tunnels dug below Mount Mantap. The regime called further tests "unnecessary", and suddenly began pursuing engagement with South Korea and the USA rather than trading threats.

In a press briefing, Sanders said North Korea has "been open with their willingness to denuclearize", Xinhua reported.

Reunions of families left divided by the conflict could also be discussed, and Moon has told Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that he would raise the emotive subject of Japanese citizens kidnapped by the North's agents.

Facebook to move users outside Europe ahead of new data regulations
Next month, the social network will change this situation, leaving under the protection of the European laws, only Europeans. The executives said the company will not be asking for new rights to collect, use or share user data.

While the anticipated meeting is considered a welcome respite from those escalating tensions, the stakes are high if it doesn't result in any progress on limiting the North's nuclear capabilities. "I'd like to keep a close eye on the developments".
