In comments to the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, U.S. President Donald Trump said that he "probaby [has] a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un", the North Korean leader.

The Trudeau government has provided little information in the days leading up to the Vancouver summit, despite being a co-host, and appears to be instead consumed with the threat of a trade war with the U.S.

"The directive complements Canada's robust sanctions regime already in place against (North Korea) and reinforces Canada's public statements identifying North Korea as a jurisdiction of concern", Sweet said in an email. Russian Federation and China, the two nations with arguably the greatest sway over the regime, will not be there, making it unlikely the Vancouver meeting gathering will produce a significant breakthrough, Paris said.

Mr. Tillerson is slated to co-host with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.

He also said that China would continue to make its own efforts to push the peninsula nuclear issue back to the track of dialogue and consultation as well as settlement. South Korea recenly seized two product tankers on charges of making illicit high-seas fuel transfers to North Korean ships, but these arrests occurred in port, not in global waters.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told journalists Wednesday that the meeting will not help the situation because key players are not included. "Should the United States and its followers try to enforce the naval blockade against our country, we will see it as an act of war and respond with merciless self-defensive counter-measures as we have warned repeatedly", a government-controlled media outlet said.

State Department director of policy planning Brian Hook said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be looking for help developing "practical mechanisms" to pressure Pyongyang. "This is not an alternative to everything that we are doing". "This ministerial will enhance and strengthen all of the efforts underway to achieve our policy goals".

Meanwhile, Japan is questioning why countries like Colombia and Greece will be there - and it won't.
