Second Meeting with Kim in Planning
US President Trump and the North Korean lider Kim could meet again, according to US government spokeswoman Sanders: Kim has expressed the desire for a meeting in a letter.
A “very warm, very positive” letter from North Korea has been received in the White House, according to US government spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders: In it, please ruler Kim Jong Un for a second meeting with US President Donald Trump.
The letter is “further evidence of progress” in relations between the two countries, Sanders said, stressing that the regime’s nuclear arsenal had not been presented at the military parade marking the 70th anniversary of North Korea‘s founding in Pyongyang, as it had been in previous parades.
Trump is open for a second meeting, which is currently in planning – but there is still no fixed date.
Trump and Kim first met in Singapore in June. At the historic one-day summit, North Korea’s ruler had expressed his willingness to denuclearize the country.
Critics rated the meeting as too low as neither a timetable nor concrete measures for nuclear disarmament had been agreed.
Over the summer, the US government became increasingly unhappy with North Korea’s progress. At the end of August, Trump therefore canceled a planned visit by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Pyongyang.
For about a week, the US President, however, spread optimism again. So he recently tweeted, “Thank you, Chairman Kim! Nothing equates to a good dialogue between two people who like each other.”
