President Donald Trump said a plan for a June 12 summit in Singapore with Kim Jong Un “hasn’t changed” and the North Korean leader reiterated his commitment to the historic meeting.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in, after meeting Saturday with the regime leader, told reporters Sunday “that Chairman Kim and I have agreed that the June 12 summit should be held successfully, and that our quest for the Korean peninsula’s denuclearisation and a perpetual peace regime should not be halted.”
Trump said arrangements are “moving along very nicely,” including sessions Sunday in North Korea. Trump made the comments Saturday night about the summit from the Oval Office as he welcomed Josh Holt, an American prisoner released by Venezuela.
On Sunday, a U.S. advance team departed Japan and arrived at Tongilgak in North Korea — north of the demilitarized zoned — for planning meetings that are expected to continue Monday and Tuesday, Heather Nauert, a State Department spokesman, told The Washington Post.
