He said that misunderstandings at a summit could lead to "recrimination and anger" and even military action if Trump were embarrassed by failure.
But if Trump goes into the summit looking for a huge, game-changing breakthrough and comes up embarrassingly short, he could find himself with few options for a next step.
This approach, having leaders meet ahead of difficult negotiations, is something of a gamble, analysts said. Kim also signaled he was willing to discuss North Korea's denuclearization and a pause in weapons testing in exchange for the possibility of normalizing relations with the U.S. -an invitation Donald Trump accepted just last night.
On the morrow of the Communist assault on South Korea in June 1950, the Forward had issued a famous editorial warning of the swindle and hypocrisy of the so-called Peace Campaign which Moscow's agents have been promoting throughout the world. It made it clear that it comprehended that absent a retreat by the communists a new world war would become inevitable.
They could also meet in the truce village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone between the rival Koreas or, Hong said, the southern South Korean resort island of Jeju.
Tillerson said that Trump has been open to mere talks and a meeting with Kim "for some time", and had decided on Thursday that "the time was right". And Rodman has visited North Korea several times, including last year, to serve as an informal diplomat and basketball guru to Kim.
Trump fired Rodman for misspelling his wife's name when the ex-NBA star appeared on Trump's reality TV show, The Apprentice, in 2013. Rapturous applause and chants like "visionary" and "dreamer" filled the chamber, but some older Koreans expressed disapproval by hissing words like "traitor". "In accepting the invitation outright, Trump has already lost much of his leverage over the terms and agenda of the talks".
The US and China, as well as Russia, have so far contributed little constructively to the resolution of the crisis on the Korean Peninsula. The question is whether Trump has the diplomatic skill to do this.
Were direct talks between Kim and Trump, two notably volatile leaders who have traded public insults for more than a year, the best way to start what are sure to be complicated negotiations?

But as we saw from Trump's recent announcement on steel and aluminum tariffs, this president has a penchant for making international policy decisions in response to political developments at home.
South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-Yong, who led his countrys delegation to Pyongyang this week for talks with the North Korean leaders, briefed Trump and his national security team.
The closest the two sides came to solving the problem was the 1994 Agreed Framework, signed by the Clinton administration and Kim Jong-in's grandfather, Kim Il-sung.
The United States would prefer Washington, while North Korea will want Trump to come to Pyongyang, its capital. So how was the ground laid for this meeting - and what are the stakes?
"Remember, North Korean regimes have repeatedly used talks and empty promises to extract concessions and buy time" to further develop their nuclear weapons programs, said House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce, R-Calif.
However, other presidents have lodged economic sanctions against North Korea, as Trump has.
"If you do that, it will be the end of you - and your regime", Graham said. In a hastily arranged press statement outside the White House to make the announcement, Chung praised Trump's "leadership".
Kang said Friday on an official visit to Hanoi, Vietnam, "the exact timing and the place will need a lot of consideration".
