US President Donald Trump said during a cabinet meeting on Wednesday that he has received a letter from North Korea’s Chairman Kim Jong-un and will likely have another summit with him in the foreseeable future.
“I got a great letter from Kim Jong Un… this letter is a great letter,” Trump said. “I look forward to our meeting with Chairman Kim. We will set that up. We will be setting that up in not too distant future.”
Kim in his New Year address on Tuesday said that he was ready to denuclearize the country and continue dialogue with Washington and Seoul to resolve the tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in December that Washington plans to revive the stalled denuclearization talks with North Korea and hopes for a meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jon-un at the beginning of 2019.
