Nikkei Asia300 rises with US-North Korea summit back on table

Regional energy companies slide after crude prices drop

HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Asian stocks rose on Monday and U.S. equity futures climbed after President Donald Trump renewed expectations of a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The Nikkei Asia300 Index added 0.5% to 1,405.18 on Monday. Futures for the S&P 500 Index indicated a stronger opening for Monday after Trump on Sunday said a U.S. team was in North Korea to make arrangements for a summit with Kim. The post on Twitter came days after the U.S. President cancelled a planned meeting with the leader of the isolated state, citing "tremendous anger and open hostility."
