South Korean president met North Korea's Kim Jong Un Saturday: Seoul

South Korean president met North Korea's Kim Jong Un Saturday: Seoul

US President Donald Trump announced on Twitter on May 25 that despite his earlier announcement that his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had been canceled, the US was still negotiating with Pyongyang.

Despite the letter, Trump maintained Friday that Washington was having "productive talks" with Pyongyang about reinstating the June 12 meeting.

That meeting was seemingly called off after Trump blasted Kim for the "tremendous anger and open hostility" he had shown towards the US.

Only last month the two leaders met in the same village, with Kim famously inviting Moon to step briefly into the North before they both held talks in a building on the South's side.

The Trump administration is demanding that North Korea completely and irreversibly shutter its nuclear weapons program.

Reuters reported earlier this week the team was scheduled to discuss the agenda and logistics for the summit with North Korean officials.

Putin said that "if you don't behave aggressively and if you don't corner North Korea, the result that we need will be achieved faster than many would think, and at less cost".

Despite the cancellation of the summit, the North Korean government responded with some restraint, saying: "The first meeting would not solve all, but solving even one at a time in a phased way would make the relations get better rather than making them get worse". -North Korea summit, scheduled for June 12 in Singapore.

Coming after a surprise meeting between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, the move was the latest sign that the on-again, off-again Trump-Kim summit may yet go ahead as planned.

"We never expected it to be easy", Nauert told reporters.


The two leaders agreed to "meet frequently in the future to make dialogue brisk and pool wisdom and efforts, expressing their stand to make joint efforts for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", Yonhap said, citing the Korean Central News Agency.

Moon said Trump's decision left him "perplexed" and was "very regrettable".

The office of the South Korean president said the outcome of Saturday's meeting will be announced on Sunday.

President Donald Trump says North Korea's latest statement on nuclear talks is "good news" and that "we will soon see where it will lead".

- Kim agrees on direct (working-level) talks between North Korea and the U.S.to narrow their gap on differing opinions, remove misunderstanding and discuss agenda through working-level talks.

"It was a very nice statement they put out", Trump said at the White House.

"(Kim) once again has made clear his will for the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and expressed his intent to settle the history of war and confrontation, and to cooperate for peace and prosperity through the success of the North Korea-US summit". "Only time [and talent] will tell!" the president tweeted.

Trump's back-and-forth over his summit plans with Kim has exposed the fragility of Seoul as an intermediary.

After a year of fiery rhetoric the two leaders agreed to meet in Singapore next month in what would be a historic summit. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid overshadowing Trump's comments Thursday.
