Trump: N. Korea summit could still happen on June 12

US President Donald Trump said on Friday that a nuclear summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could still take place as scheduled on June 12, just one day after he cancelled it. "We'll see what happens. It could even be the 12th," Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House before leaving for the US Naval Academy to deliver a commencement address. "They very much want to do it. We'd like to do it. We're going to see what happens," he was quoted as saying by the Hill magazine. North Korea issued a conciliatory statement on Thursday night in response to Trump's decision to scrap his meeting with Kim. "We reiterate to the US that there is a willingness to sit down at any time, in any way, to solve the problem," a top North Korean official said.

China hails N. Korea's n-site demolition, asks US to be positive

China on Friday said Pyongyang's move to dismantle its nuclear test site reflected its intent to ease the tensions in the Korean peninsula and hoped that the US moves in a positive direction, a day after American President Donald Trump called off his scheduled summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. China also brushed aside Trump's insinuation that a sudden change in the North's attitude -- from soft to belligerent -- had to do with Beijing's influence on Pyongyang. It urged both the countries to be patient and move in the positive direction and said the matter was between them and Beijing had a limited role in it. "China's position on this issue is consistent and clear-cut. We believe that as a party concerned to the issue, the DPRK-US summit can play a role in promoting the denuclearization of the peninsula," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said.

US secretary of state Mike Pompeo pushes for CAATSA waiver so that countries like India aren't affected

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has urged the Congress to provide the necessary waiver so that its sanctions on Russia under CAATSA does not impact countries for which it is not intended for. Provisions of the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) threaten India and several other close friends and allies of the US with sanctions. CAATSA is a US federal law that imposed sanctions on Iran, North Korea and Russia. It includes sanctions against countries that engage in significant transactions with Russia's defence and intelligence sectors. India is planning to purchase five S-400 Triumf air defence systems for around $4.5 billion from Russia, which US officials say could be considered as a significant military purchase.

Revoking of work visa of spouses of H-1B holders in final stages: US

The move to rescind work authorisation to certain categories of H-4 visa holders is in final stages, the Trump administration has told a US court. H-4 visas are issued to the spouses of H-1B visa holders, a significantly large number of whom are high-skilled professionals from India. The Trump administration is planning to end the Obama-era rule allowing spouses of H1-B visa holders to work legally in the US, a move that could have a devastating impact on more than 70,000 H-4 visa holders who have work permits. The proposed rule is currently in final clearance, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told a federal court in a status update. The Trump administration yesterday told the court that once the proposal is cleared through the DHS, it will be sent to the Office of Management and Budget for review under Executive Order for regulatory and planning review.
