Trump to meet South Korean president at White House on May 22

A date and location have reportedly been set for the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but the details have yet to be publicly announced.

Two of the three detainees - Kim Hak-song and Kim Sang Duk, also known as Tony Kim - were imprisoned in 2017 when Trump was in office.

Officials with the Pentagon and the National Security Council also denied the report.

"Pyongyang time" is no more.

South Korea now hosts one of the largest USA military presences overseas.

"No, strength is going to keep us out of nuclear war, not going to get us in!" he added.

For many in the region, giving up that protection is an unsettling prospect, even if peace comes to the peninsula.

Under the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton, a hands-off approach was used under a policy known as "strategic patience" (wait and see), during which the North Koreans increased nuclear missile tests and animosity toward South Korea.

"Pyongyang Time" was created as tensions between the authoritarian country and the United States grew over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program and global sanctions aimed at dismantling it.
