Amidst preparations for a summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on June 12 in Singapore, there are indications that South Korean President Moon Jae-in could also make a trip to Singapore for a possible three-way summit around the same time.

South Korean official news agency Yonhap, quoting an unnamed presidential official, said a three-way meeting depends on the outcome of the ongoing discussions between Washington and Pyongyang.

The agency quoted the official saying, “The discussions are just getting started, so we are still waiting to see how they come out, but depending on their outcome, the president could join President Trump and Chairman Kim in Singapore.”

While maintaining that Kim is committed to denuclearization, South Korean President Moon Jae-in acknowledged Pyongyang and Washington may have differing expectations of what that means, and he urged both sides to hold working-level talks to resolve their differences.

The leaders of North and South Korea suddenly met late on Saturday evening for the second time within a month.

Moon said, “Even though they share the same resolve, there need to be discussions regarding the roadmap for how to make it happen, and that process could be tough,” declining to define “complete denuclearization”.

On Sunday, Japan’s Kyodo news agency, citing unnamed US officials, reported that US has asked North Korea to move all of its nuclear warheads out of the Korean Peninsula before the June 12 summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The officials say that Pyongyang has been reluctant to ship out its estimated 20 warheads along with its intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) out of the country. However, Kyodo claimed that Kim had offered to ship out some of the missiles that are capable of hitting US mainland.

US officials have also discussed possible plans to scrap weapons-grade plutonium, highly enriched uranium and other weapons related material that North Korea might have.

Nawaz Sharif, Bilawal Bhutto’s parties strike deal on Pakistan coalition Govt, Shehbaz Sharif to be PM

The PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari, 68, is set to assume the role of the President of Pakistan again.

Nawaz Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari’s Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) have agreed on a power-sharing deal to form a new coalition government after days of intense negotiations, as per the senior party leaders.

On Tuesday night, in a joint conference, the PPP Chairman Bhutto announced that PML-N president, 72-year-old Shehbaz Sharif will be the Prime Minister of Pakistan once again and the PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari, 68, is set to assume the role of the President of Pakistan again.

Speaking to reports, Bhutto said the PPP and PML-N have achieved the required number, and now they were in a position to form the government.

He said the former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party-backed candidates and Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) could not achieve a simple majority in Parliament to form government in the Centre.

Bilawal hoped that the political alliance with PML-N to form a coalition government would result in a positive market response since the cash-strapped country faced a hung Parliament after the February 8 elections.

Independent candidates, who were supported by the 71-year-old Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party, managed to secure 93 seats in the National Assembly.

Shehbaz Sharif, in his speech, expressed confidence that his PML-N party, along with the PPP, now has the necessary numbers to form the next government. He also thanked the leadership of both parties for successfully concluding the talks.

According to the reports, the former prime minister highlighted the unity between the two political parties and their strong position to form the government at the Centre.

The PML-N secured 75 seats in the election, while the PPP came in third with 54 seats. Additionally, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) has agreed to support the two parties with their 17 seats.

To form a government, a party must win 133 out of 265 contested seats in the 266-member National Assembly or the lower house of Parliament.
