  • North and South Korean time zones get in sync

On the same day, Trump's National Security Adviser John Bolton called the New York Times article "utter nonsense".

The White House hasn't said whether Trump is willing to place USA troop levels on the negotiating table when he meets with Kim.

Speaking to reporters at Joint Base Andrews, Trump said he was not considering such a move "at this moment" and emphasized that Pyongyang has not asked the United States to do so.

President Donald Trump said Friday that he will not offer to remove USA troops from South Korea or reduce their presence there during his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

The U.S. President also denied a recent report from the New York Times which claimed he was considering reducing the number of U.S. troops in South Korea. "We'll be announcing it very soon", Trump said from the White House lawn.

"We're having very substantive talks with North Korea and a lot of things have already happened with respect to the hostages".

In Panmunjom, Kim had said he found it a "painful wrench" to see clocks at the summit venue showing different times for the two neighbours, KCNA reported earlier.

ICAO Asia and Pacific Regional Director Arun Mishra will travel to North Korea with the director of the agency's air navigation bureau, Stephen Creamer, to open discussion on air navigation and safety issues.

At the stroke of midnight in Seoul on Saturday (11 a.m. ET Friday), the goodwill continued, with North Korea adjusting its clocks 30 minutes forward to be in the same time zone as its southern neighbor.

On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence postponed a planned trip to Brazil at the end of May to free resources for Mr Trump's meeting with Mr Kim.

He said the details of the summit would be announced soon, with the White House saying it could take place this month as long as North Korea makes specific concessions.

Six South Koreans are also being held in North Korea, but their status remains uncertain despite an otherwise successful inter-Korean summit last Friday. The two leaders signed a peace accord and officially ended the Korean War, which started in 1950.
