"This will be Americans coming in, private sector Americans, not the US taxpayer, private sector Americans coming in to help build out the energy grid ... to work with them to develop infrastructure, all the things the North Korean people need", Mr. Pompeo said, adding that those investments are wholly contingent on the North Koeans granting "what it is the president has demanded". He died soon after his return to the United States. "When I make promises, I keep them".

The comments came three days after the United States president announced he would violate the worldwide nuclear deal with Iran which imposed strict curbs on Tehran's nuclear programme in return for sanctions relief.

And Pompeo said the United States would remain on board to help develop the North's economy, which has been devastated by its own mismanagement and crippling global sanctions.

Mr Pompeo said he had "good, substantive" conversations with Mr Kim in Pyongyang in what was his second meeting with the North Korea leader in less that six weeks, and believed both sides understood the ultimate goal of the summit.

UAE's national oil company to invest 45bln Dollars into new refinery complex
Sultan Al Jaber flagged off the first consignment of 2 million barrels of ADNOC crude for Mangalore Cavern on Saturday. Adnoc has about 900,000 barrels a day of refining capacity at home, mainly at Ruwais on the Gulf coast.

Asked how they were treated in North Korea, he responded through an interpreter, "in many, many ways".

Today's announcement comes after Trump said he would hold a summit with Kim in Singapore on June 12 - the first-ever meeting between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in's administration is conducting its own efforts to normalize ties on the divided peninsula and secure lasting peace. "The United States, and all of its GREAT people, should be very proud of what is now taking place in Korea!" he wrote.

U.S. President Donald Trump plans to raise the issue at the U.S.

Israel Intercepts Iranian Rockets Launched from Syria
The attack on the Golan Heights - an Israeli occupied region of Syria - is the first time Iran has hit Israel from Syria. Netanyahu also warned Syria that Israel would retaliate if the Syrian military acted against his country.

Trump has repeatedly said that if the meeting with Kim does not take the right course, he may walk out or cancel the summit. In Iran's case, its closest current ally is Russian Federation.

As the Trump-Kim summit nears, there are several concerns. However, European leaders did not really do much to salvage the deal beyond trying to coax Trump into remaining in it, or - worse yet from an Iranian point of view - appeasing Washington at Tehran's expense. As a outcome, Europeans are no less despised and distrusted in Iranian decision-making circles these days. Although North Korea has agreed to halt its nuclear program, for now, it is unclear exactly what "full denuclearization" means and if Kim will be willing to get rid of all of his nuclear weapons.

Trump's tough line on Iran, of course, was intended for an audience beyond Tehran. After being flown to a US military base in Japan, the men were taken to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.

The release of the Americans is seen as a goodwill gesture by North Korea ahead of those talks.
