Yonhap also reported on the potential meeting Tuesday morning, quoting a diplomatic source as saying the meeting is expected to iron out details for a second Trump-Kim summit. It was flown to Pyongyang and delivered by hand, the source said.

CNN had previously reported that U.S. scouting teams visited Bangkok, Hanoi and Hawaii as they search for a location for the second summit.

Mr Kim renewed his resolve to meet Mr Trump again during his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing last week.

She was also among the officials who accompanied Mr Kim to Singapore for his first summit with Mr Trump in June previous year. Events so far suggest 2019 could be similarly busy.

In the previous white paper, dated 2016, Seoul described Pyongyang as posing "major threats" to national security, adding that "the North Korean regime and its military will remain an enemy" as long as such threats persist.

The 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice rather than a peace treaty, placing a heavily fortified border across the peninsula and leaving it still technically at war.

Kim is then expected meet Pompeo and USA special representative to North Korea Steve Biegun on Friday, the sources said.

Leeds facing action for spying on opposition team
He could make his Leeds' debut at Stoke on the weekend as the Whites look to extend their four-point lead at the top of the table. The EFL launched a formal investigation this week and wrote to Leeds United to "seek observations" from the club.

Last year, North Korea "heightened its global influence and it had received a great support, understanding, and fervent welcome from the whole world", KCNA noted.

Officials from the Central Intelligence Agency and North Korea's United Front Department have since December met in the Panmunjom truce village on the border between the two Koreas to discuss steps North Korea could make to end its atomic ambitions - and others the US could take in return - South Korea's DongA Ilbo newspaper reported Thursday, citing an unidentified diplomatic source.

While Trump has been eager to hold a second summit with Kim, on Wednesday the USA vice-president, Mike Pence, acknowledged that efforts to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear arsenal had not made headway.

While the White House had offered no immediate comment on the earlier South Korean newspaper report, a State Department official responded, "We don't have any meetings to announce".

A meeting could mean the two sides are nearing a compromise after months of standoff over how to move forward in ending North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes. Concerns have been raised since over Pyongyang's commitment to denuclearization and Washington's own willingness to take the steps needed for a peace treaty to be signed.

It's unclear if he will visit the White House, but the sources say that is the expectation from the North Koreans and the U.S. side is preparing for the possibility. "We're doing very well". Koh said North Korea had made clear what it's willing to agree to and what it won't accept, and the ball is now in Trump's court.
