The White House says it is coordinating a second meeting between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump, requested by the North Korean leader in a new letter to the president of the United States.
At their historic summit in June in Singapore, Trump and Kim agreed that they would work to denuclearize North Korea, but the bilateral dialogue soon became entrenched.
“The main purpose of the letter was to ask, and look how to make another meeting with the president,” said Sarah Sanders, presidential spokesman, at a press conference at the White House. Sanders, who called Kim’s letter “warm” and “very productive,” added that “coordination is already underway” to be carried out.
The spokeswoman avoided offering details, however, about the place and date of the hypothetical meeting between the two presidents. It is Sanders’ first press conference in almost three weeks, something unusual given the traditional daily appearance of the presidential spokespersons and that is the result of the frontal clashes of the Trump government with the media.
At their historic summit in June in Singapore, Trump and Kim agreed that they would work to denuclearize North Korea, but the bilateral dialogue soon became entrenched due to differences in how to carry out this process. North Korea has demanded progress in signing a peace treaty with the South to end the state of war that is technically still in the peninsula, in exchange for concrete steps to dismantle its arsenal that the White House demands .
After a peak of tension in which he ended up canceling a trip to Pyongyang from his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, Trump has taken up his kind speech to Kim, and on Friday announced that he expected another letter from the North Korean leader.
