Behind Kim Jong Un's new role as peacemaker: Confidence in his nukes played a key role

Japan, China and South Korea set Tokyo summit for May 9

Its foreign minister, Wang Yi, returned on Thursday to Beijing after two days in North Korea's capital, Pyongyang, where he met the country's leader, Kim Jong-un, shoring up China's position as the North's best friend. That's despite the fact that one of the president's lawyers, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News the three would be released today.

President Trump, after tweeting about the Americans Wednesday evening with instructions to "stay tuned", said during a Rose Garden event on Thursday that "some very good announcements" would be coming shortly, but did not specify on what.

South Korea's presidential office said high-level inter-Korea talks would be held in the middle of this month to work on implementing the agreement reached by the two Koreas. The families of the prisoners, meanwhile, said they had received no new information about their loved ones.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is believed to have discussed the prisoners' release during a secret meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un over the Easter weekend in Pyongyang.

North Korea has released three USA detainees in the country, according to media reports, and it meets some of President Donald Trump demands for Pyongyang to demonstrate sincerity before the historic meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un.

Trump has been determined to withdraw the troops, arguing that the United States is not adequately compensated for the cost, according to the report.

The meeting was part of the president's efforts to guarantee maximum support for the so-called Panmunjom Declaration, which he signed with Kim on April 27 after their close-doors meeting.

For China, the recent meetings offer an opportunity for it to reinforce its importance in the region and ensure that its concerns and interests are respected in any future negotiations.

In 2000, President Kim Dae-jung, the initiator of the Sunshine Policy, flew to Pyongyang to meet with Kim Jong-il, ushering in a period of détente that seemed to promise an end to hostilities on the peninsula. But the release of the detained Americans would be seen as a positive development ahead of talks.

As a result, United States officials are still arguing for Singapore as a possible location for the talks, telling Trump it presents a more neutral option, the source told CNN.

"This isn't how we should be doing this", sighed one U.S. official after Giuliani's appearance on Fox. I don't want to sit there and say, 'I did this, I did that.' That's not my intention. "I want them to get rid of their nukes".

Kim's March trip was his first to his country's only major ally since taking power six years ago, kicking off a flurry of diplomacy.

However, although he admitted that he hopes to return to management in the English top flight, he insisted that it will be "no time soon".

Giuliani's statement echoed reports by South Korea's Yonhap News, the Financial Times and CNN that the men - Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song, and Tony Kim - would be freed soon. The 22-year-old American student was detained for 17 months in North Korea and was returned to the USA with "severe brain damage and in a nonresponsive state" in June 2017.
