  • Chinese government's top diplomat Wang Yi to visit North Korea this week

"It's really President Trump who should receive it; we can just take peace", Moon's office quoted him as saying. That summit was the first between the leaders of the two Koreas in more than a decade, and the first to be held in the South.

Mr Trump said last week the location of the historic summit had been narrowed down to a handful of locations, with the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar and Singapore two of those mentioned.

But some seemed skeptical about the president's chances to actually win the prize, including his own son. It's still unclear exactly when that meeting will happen.

"The world is a global village and North Korea's missile programmes affect the whole world".

A man watches a television screen showing U.S. President Donald Trump, left, and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a news program at the Seoul Train Station in Seoul, South Korea, Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017.

"I heard directly from the Chinese that the Libyan model did not inspire confidence in Pyongyang", said Antony J. Blinken, a deputy secretary of state under Mr. Obama.


In a joint statement Friday, the Korean nations called for a nuclear-free peninsula, but Mr. Bolton said the White House hasn't committed to keeping its nuclear-capable ships and aircraft out of the region. How about, everything - I will tell you what.

At the same time, relations have become somewhat strained over North Korea's nuclear weapons programme, as China fears it will bring instability to the region and could boost the standing of the United States in Asia through its ally South Korea.

President Donald Trump says a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will probably take place in the next three or four weeks.

A total of four USA presidents have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize: Obama, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter. But Trump has since received praise for garnering promises from the North's regime and for making progress on an issue that vexed so many of his predecessors.

"President Trump deserves a great deal of credit for his statemanly role in transforming so dramatically the course of events in that region", he said.

In another stunning display of diplomatic genius, Trump used his speech at the United Nations General Assembly past year to threaten to "totally destroy" North Korea if it did not comply with Washington's demands.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, who has ran hot and cold toward Trump, said the USA leader was a serious contender for the award.
