North, South Korea hold meeting over likely U.S. summit

US President Donald Trump

"The White House pre-advance team for Singapore will leave as scheduled in order to prepare should the summit take place", Sanders said in a statement Saturday morning.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un expressed "his fixed will" on a possible June 12 summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in a meeting on Saturday with the president of South Korea, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap.

The leaders of North and South Korea met for two hours Saturday to discuss the canceled summit with Donald Trump, less than a day after the us leader signaled the meeting may be back on citing "very productive" talks between the two countries.

The meeting at a border truce village came hours after South Korea expressed relief over revived talks for a summit between Trump and Kim.

In his letter to Mr Kim, President Trump objected specifically to a statement from senior North Korean diplomat Choe Son Hui.

In April, Kim and Moon also met for the first time, during which they publicly announced the beginning of peace talks, and pledged to end the decades-long Korean war, which would reunite thousands of families divided by the conflict.

After he returns from Russian Federation on Sunday, Abe hopes to talk with Trump by phone and is expected to reaffirm trilateral cooperation with South Korea in dealing with the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear weapon and ballistic missile capabilities.

- 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.

South Korea's presidential palace refused to confirm any details of the latest inter-Korean summit, saying President Moon himself will explain the outcome in a press conference on Sunday.

The highly anticipated summit between President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong-un in June will have been a golden opportunity to avert nuclear standoff and provide the much-needed peace and stability in a highly vulnerable region of the world.

But on Saturday, Trump said he was still looking at a June 12 date for a summit in Singapore, adding that talks were progressing very well.

President Donald Trump says negotiations over a potential summit with the leader of North Korea are "going along very well".

The summit between the leaders of North and South Korea marks the second time they've met in a month as both nations work to smooth relations and resume talks. Trump cited North Korean hostility in cancelling the summit.

The reclusive state was also seen increasingly unnerved as it thought it had made a series of unrequited denuclearization gestures such as a freeze on nuclear and long-range missile tests, and last week's dismantling of its only known nuclear test site, observers said. Even President Moon Jae-In did not expect Trump to call off the meeting.
