North Korea's state media kept quiet in the last couple of days about the time and date of the June 12 summit with the U.S.
Instead, they claimed that South Koreans are hailing their leader Kim Jong-un as "a leader worthy of praise as the pride of all the Korean people."
The Rodong Sinmun and other state media made no mention of the summit, a visit to the U.S. by Kim’s right-hand man Kim Yong-chol, or preparatory talks in Singapore and the border truce village of Panmunjom.
That suggests the regime is treading carefully in weighing its response to U.S. demands.
U.S. President Donald Trump has called on the North to commit to permanent denuclearization while flagging the possibility of formally ending the Korean War.
