The North Korea summit is officially back on after President Trump held a historic meeting with the right hand man of leader Kim Jong Un.
Following today’s meeting with North Korean official Kim Yong Chol, the president told reporters the summit will take place as scheduled on Tuesday, June 12 in Singapore.
In addition to denuclearization, the president said he is hopeful his meeting with Kim will finally bring an end to the Korean War.
If North Korea agrees to abandon its nuclear program, President Trump assured that the U.S. will take steps to ensure it follows through with its promise.
During Friday’s meeting, the president did receive a personal letter from Kim, but said he has not read it just yet.
