president of the UNITED states, Donald Trump, confirms on Sunday that negotiations are in progress on when the next meeting with North korea's leader, Kim Jong-un, to take place.
It writes the AFP news agency.
Trump held in June last year, a startling meeting with Kim in Singapore. He says that he earlier in the week received a "great letter" from the north Korean leader.
- We are negotiating a site, says Trump on the way on board a helicopter.
- It will be announced in the not so distant future. They want to meet, and we want to meet. So we'll see what happens.
- We have a good dialogue with north Korea, notes, Trump, adding that he "indirectly speaking" with Kim.
The latest letter from Kim reached out to The White House, after the north Korean leader in a new year speech, he warned that his government could change the outlook on negotiations with the UNITED states, if the americans maintain their sanctions against north Korea.
Trump said Sunday that the sanctions will remain, "with its full force and effect" until the UNITED states sees positive results.
the UNITED states and north Korea since the Korean war from 1950 to 1953 been bitter opponents. There is, for example, never signed a formal end to the war.
The communist north Korea in the last 70 years has been guided by the same family. Kim Jong-un is the third generation.
Under the Trumps and Kim's first meeting, they agreed to work for a nuclear-free Korean peninsula. But there is, then, arose a great doubt, what it really means.
the UNITED states is pushing for north Korea scraps its nuclear weapons. Only then can economic sanctions be scrapped, it says.
Trump has expounded his first meeting with Kim as a big diplomatic victory. On Sunday he repeated what he has previously said many times: That there would have been war in Asia, if he had not been elected president of the UNITED states.
Forward to the new year in 2018 - that is, for a little over a year ago - there was the fear of open war. But it was Kim, then with a conciliatory new year's speech got the time in meetings with south Korea. It was shortly after Trump with the idea of a summit in Singapore.
