The White House is planning a second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday.
The news emerged in connection with the letter received by Donald Trump from Kim Jong Un, described as “very warm, very positive.” President Donald Trump sent his thanks to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sunday after the country made changes to its military parade in Pyongyang, where the traditional display of the country’s intercontinental missiles were missed. Theme was instead the peace and economic development.“This is a big and very positive statement from North Korea,” Trump tweeted. In fact, Kim signaled to America and South Korea that indeed he may be more serious about denuclearization than some would credit him.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his South Korean counterpart will meet later this month to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, his state-controlled media reported Thursday. The dates of the summit were expected to be released sometime Thursday. The South is also aiming for a four-nation summit that would include China, to declare a formal end to the Korean War. North Korea’s Foreign Ministry issued a lengthy statement where it said an end-of-war declaration would be a necessary trust-building step that would "manifest the political will to establish the lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula."
