Trump on Tuesday said Pompeo was traveling to North Korea to prepare for the upcoming meeting between North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and the President. "We will both try to make it a very special movement for the World Peace". Kim made the remarks after he recently met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Pyongyang to finalise the details for the summit and also ensuring the smooth release of the three American detainees.

Mr Trump and first lady wife, Melania, boarded the plane for about five minutes before the men stepped out, shaking hands with the President and waving to waiting media and military personnel.

"We had good conversations about the histories of our two nations, the challenges that we have had between us", Pompeo told reporters at a news conference Friday with South Korea's visiting foreign minister, Kang Kyung-wha.

Trump has said he wants North Korea to completely shut down its nuclear weapons program.

Earlier, Trump set the tone for a positive start to the meeting by praising Kim for freeing the three prisoners, all Korean-Americans.

"We welcomed them back home the proper way", Trump told supporters at a campaign rally in Indiana Thursday evening.

Trump said he wanted to pay his "warmest respects" to the family of Otto Warmbier, the American who was released by the North Koreans in a vegetative state, only to die days later.

The president hopes to walk away with a deal that would denuclearize the Korean peninsula.

At the historic inter-Korea summit on April 27, Mr Kim and South Korean president Moon Jae In issued a joint declaration to say that both sides share the "common goal of realising, through complete denuclearisation, a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula".

Until recently, Mr Kim and Mr Trump had been trading personal insults and threats, heightening tensions over North Korea's nuclear programme.

"I really think he wants to do something and bring the country into the real world", he added of Kim.

Pyongyang has yet to indicate its price for any move toward denuclearization and may yet demand United States troops withdraw from South Korea as a quid pro quo.

The statement called that relationship "one of the United States' closest partnerships in Asia for more than 50 years".

"I think this will be a very big success".
