Trump says next meeting with North Korea's Kim being set up

10 October 2018

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that plans were being made for his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. He thinks "incredible" progress has been made in U.S. talks with the long-isolated country.

U.S. President, Donald Trump said "You know, people don't realize the importance of the first meeting...We have very big sanctions. I would love to remove them but we have to get something for doing it."

Trump and Kim held a historic first summit in Singapore on June 12 at which Kim pledged to work toward denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. However, his actions have fallen short of Washington's demands for a complete inventory of its weapons and facilities and irreversible steps.
