Sweden, whose embassy represents USA interests in the North Korean capital, has been touted as a possible venue for the momentous summit between Kim and Trump, and the visit will fuel speculation that a Stockholm encounter is in the cards.

Some Swedish and foreign media have said that Ri - who was stationed at North Korea's embassy in Stockholm in 1985-1988 - will stay in the Scandinavian country until Sunday for other talks, though Swedish officials would not confirm those reports.

If North Korea agrees to the talks, they would be the first North-South contact since a South Korean delegation returned from a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this month and a chance for North Korea to break its silence on promised engagements with the South and the United States.

Global media have speculated that Sweden could either help set up a proposed summit or be a potential location if a tête-à-tête were to be confirmed. He said the agenda is created to bring about permanent peace, the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, a dramatic relaxation of military tensions, and also to seek bold progress in inter-Korean relations.
