Donald Trump has announced that his June 12 summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong un is back on. The president announced the historic Singapore meeting would go ahead just a week after he canceled it, following an hour-long meeting with Kim’s right-hand man Kim Yong Chol in the oval office.
Yong Chol delivered a letter from Kim, whose contents Mr Trump says were ‘very nice’ and ‘very interesting’, but declined to share any further details. He told reporters on the White House lawn: ‘We will be meeting on june 12 in Singapore. It went very well. It’s really a get to know you type of situation. ‘Mike (Pompeo, Secretary of State) has spent two days doing this, we’ve gotten to know their people very well.
President Trump said he was confident North Korea would dump its nuclear weapons program, and said he believed the secretive state was finally ready to open itself up to the world.
