  • Giuliani shrugs off reaction to 'hands and knees' comment on Kim

The Russian top diplomat's visit came amid increasing ties between the two Korean states and two weeks before a planned meeting between Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump, scheduled to be held in Singapore on June 12.

Giuliani, who is an attorney for the president, recommended the Trump administration to adopt the same approach with Palestinians.

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, defended his description of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as being on his "hands and knees" begging just days before a historic summit is scheduled to take place.

"(North Korea) said they were going to go to nuclear war with us, they were going to defeat us in a nuclear war", The Wall Street Journal quoted Giuliani as saying. "The topics of Pyongyang's infrastructure, investment by large Chinese insurance firms and development of resource-rich mining centers such as Tanchon in North Korea's South Hamgyong province are also under discussion following the second North Korea-China summit".

Both Trump and Kim traded threats of war and "fire and fury" for much of previous year, while the USA continued to lash the North's economy with heavy sanctions. North Korea responded with a conciliatory statement, and the USA resumed plans for the meeting, which is scheduled for June 12 in Singapore.

Also, Singapore on Tuesday added its southern resort island of Sentosa to a special event area designated for next week's summit.

"A lot of relationships being built, a lot of negotiations going on before the trip", Trump told reporters in the Oval Office Wednesday.

As to the designated location of the summit, there has been no confirmation yet, however Shangri-La hotel has been said to be the likely venue, amidst speculation about other high-end hotels such as St Regis Singapore and Four Seasons Hotel Singapore and the Fullerton Hotel.

The announcement that the meeting was back on followed a meeting between Mr Trump and senior North Korean official Kim Yong Chol, who arrived at the White House to hand-deliver a letter from the country's leader.
