Trump floats DMZ as location for North Korea meeting

The venue makes the most sense logistically for Kim, the source said, because media facilities and equipment are already in place, which could the allow the summit to take place "in late May".

The idea of meeting at the DMZ wasn't a complete surprise to aides since Trump has been talking about it all weekend and raised it in his Sunday phone call with Moon, a senior USA official and a person familiar with the conversations told CNN.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in announced Seoul's "New Southern Policy" at a business meeting in Indonesia last November.

"[They] particularly stressed on the Panmunjom declaration, to provide nuclear-free status to the Korean Peninsula through its complete denuclearization", the Kremlin said. "I may go in, it may not work out, I leave", Trump told the rally-goers.

It wasn't clear whether his enthusiasm was stirred by the South Korean president's suggestion Monday that Trump could take the Nobel Peace Prize if the two Koreas win peace. Trump, the South Korean leader said, "can take the Nobel prize" - so long as the two Koreas receive peace in return. "If it doesn't work out well, that's the way it goes", the US President said.

Trump's recently installed national security adviser, John Bolton, who has in the past advocated military action against North Korea, reacted coolly Sunday to its reported willingness to give up nuclear programs if the United States commits to a formal end to the war and a pledges not to attack.

Earlier in the day, Trump had tweeted that numerous countries were being considered as sites for the summit but seemed to note that he saw the DMZ as more "representative" of the occasion.

Lee Hee-ho had congratulated him and suggested he should win the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his efforts.

Previous winners of the Nobel Peace Prize have included Mr Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai and Nelson Mandela.

But Trump said that the Southeast Asian city state of Singapore was also in the running to host what few would have predicted when nuclear tensions were soaring a year ago - the first face-to-face meeting between the leaders of the United States and North Korea.

US President Donald Trump, who previously condemned Kim as "Little Rocket Man" on a suicide mission and even a "mad man", said after the Panmunjeom talks that Kim was "very open" and "very honorable".

Sen. Lindsey Graham, who has ran hot and cold toward Trump, said the US leader was a serious contender for the award.

And when Kim talked alone with Moon, without aides, he sought Moon's advice for his coming talks with Trump, they said. "I think the summit is going to happen".

Skeptics, however, say that Kim might be duping Moon and Trump into a false peace.
