Do Jong-hwan, South Korea's newly appointed sports minister, said last week he would ask Chang for his support in securing North Korea's participation in the PyeongChang Olympics, which kicks off in February 2018.

Do also vowed to push for a united team in women's hockey.

Mr Snyder cautioned that Mr Trump's personal views of South Korea being a security and economic free rider "could surface at any time to generate bad chemistry" during the summit and make it hard for the allies to negotiate a free trade deal and cost-sharing of maintaining 28,000 U.S. troops in South Korea. "The same might be said of Trump personally, but Washington and United States foreign policy elites place the highest value on the alliance and South Korea's security".

European Union agrees to roll over Russian Federation economic sanctions
Russian Federation canceled its plans to participate in a one-on-one meeting with US soon after an announcement. The EU initially imposed sanctions on Russian Federation three years ago after it annexed Crimea.
