The meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may take place in Singapore in mid-June, according to South Korean media reports.
Earlier there were speculations that the two leaders would meet in the demilitarized zone, or DMZ, between North and South Korea — the venue of the recent North-South Korea summit, later this month.
According to a report in South Korean daily Chosun Ilbo, the two leaders would most likely meet in Singapore in the third week of June after the G-7 summit in Canada. Trump on Friday said the date and location for the landmark summit were decided and the details would be announced soon.
“It will be very soon. I have the date. I have the location. It’s all agreed to,” the president told mediapersons at the White House on Friday. “We’re having very substantive talks with North Korea. And a lot of things have already happened with respect to the hostages, and I think you’re going to see very good things. As I said yesterday, stay tuned. I think you’re going to be seeing very, very good things. And also the trip is being scheduled. We now have a day and we have a location.”
