US President expressed his excitement about the second round of talks with North Korean Leader. The second meeting between the US-North Korea between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un will take place in Vietnam on February 27 and 28.
Last year, the two leaders meet in Singapore, after which the White House said in a statement that Kim “reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula”. Since the June summit, North Korea has conducted no further nuclear and missile tests but has made no commitment to abandon its nuclear arsenal.
Trump discussed his trip with media about his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in saying, “I had a great conversation this morning with President Moon of South Korea. We obviously discussed the upcoming trip next week…we’re going to Hanoi in Vietnam…I look forward to being with Chairman Kim (Jong-un)…I think a lot of things will come out of it,” Trump told reporters about the telephonic conversation. President Moon and I discussed probably every aspect of the meeting.”
“We’re in no rush whatsoever, we’re going to have our meeting…we’ll see what happens and I think ultimately we’re going to be very successful,” Trump said.
The White House said that after the summit, the two leaders agreed to remain in close communication. In an interaction with reporters, Trump said: “I will be speaking tomorrow (Wednesday) with Prime Minister Abe of Japan. I will be having a similar conversation. So I think next week is going to be very exciting. It’s going to be the second summit. I really believe that North Korea can be a tremendous economic power. Their location between Russia, China, and South Korea is unbelievable”.
