Last week Kim took another step towards normalising his country's image ahead of the summits when he gave his wife, Ri Sol-ju, the title of first lady, putting her on a par with Moon's wife, Kim Jung-sook, and Melania Trump.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has visited the Chinese Embassy in Pyongyang to express his "deep" condolences over the death of scores of Chinese tourists in a traffic accident in the North, state media said Tuesday. His late father, Kim Jong-il, often visited the Chinese diplomatic mission, but Kim Jong-un did not do so, reflecting the long strained relations between Pyongyang and Beijing. But implementing the base camp approach is hard when all the North Korea experts at the State Department have gone, including a three-decade veteran who announced his retirement in February.
Despite those sanctions, it remains North Korea's sole ally, providing an important economic and political buffer against global opprobrium.
North Korean experts say that the Pompeo visit can not be the only meeting between now and the time of the possible summit.
On April 11, 2018, an official from Moon's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae ruled out North Korea's human rights record as an agenda item for the summit.
How the North Korean situation eventually resolves itself, whether by the regime's own evolution, worldwide action, or internal revolution, remains uncertain and distant. The North has frequently used Gadhafi's death to justify its own nuclear development in the face of perceived USA threats.

Man City's Pep Guardiola: Breaking records can help team stay focused
The following season, their response to securing the title with four games to spare was to suffer three successive league defeats. Swansea have one of the biggest and hardest tasks to continue playing in the Premier League next year.
Lee Jeong-hyoo, 72, said South Korea should learn from a history of broken promises.
Polls suggest South Koreans have become increasingly indifferent to the threat of war, with bigger concerns being more mundane issues like jobs and the pressures that have accompanied South Korea´s rapid development since the 1950s.
North Korea said on Saturday it would close its nuclear testing facility and suspend nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile tests. "If it's anything other than a conversation about how to do that, then I think it shows it's just camouflage for North Korea to continue working toward its long-sought objective of deliverable nuclear weapons". The elder Kim saidNorth Korea would be amenable to USA troops staying "as a peacekeeping force in Korea, instead of a hostile force against the North".
That was when the United States embraced the Beijing government and withdrew troops and security guarantees from its longtime ally in Taiwan - a possible precedent, in North Korean eyes, for partial American withdrawal of support for South Korea.
But doubts linger over whether North Korea has truly made a decision to change course after conducting six nuclear tests and pushing ahead with development of ICBMs that could reach the USA mainland, given its history of broken promises over its nuclear and missile programs.
South Korea has stopped propaganda broadcasts near the border with North Korea, Yonhap News Agency News reported, citing the Defense Ministry.
"If the South and North Korea can declare the end of the war, it will be very historic in the sense that it will lead to an end to Asia's Cold War", Yi said, adding that building trust between the two countries is also expected to facilitate the process of steering North Korea toward denuclearization.
